Default Best color for Z that GM didnít offer

Iím thinking about wrapping my Ďcrystal red metallic Ď15 Z convertible and like admiral blue and Velocity yellow but Iím trying to think out of the box a bit. Shoot me some ideas. I have black cups and chrome Z wheels and black top.

I was thinking about a silver/gray , something between silver and cyber gray . Or guards red .. itís kinda overwhelming

Flat black would be my preference. Saw it on a new AMG-GT a couple months back....the color was outstanding and would look fantastic on a Z06!

There was a Z around me wrapped in crazy shiny silver-looked like mercury.

Really eye catching and kind of cool.

There was also a mustang in shiny liquid gold-but that looked sort of gaudy.

I also saw a flat black amg gt-r and it was undoubtedly cool. Probably look good on the Vette.

miami blue (to my eye) is more pastel... robin egg??. anyway i do agree with the grabber blue comparison. it also looks like the new toyota blue.

Would be awesome to see GM offer some matte colors. They did a great job offering various colors on the C7 though. They should have ran Black Rose longer. Looks great, love the Wakins Grey. The Orange is sweet but would love to see a richer orange ala McLaren.

Atomic Orange. Had it on my '08 Z06 and IMO, the best orange GM every offered. If that color had been available, I would have chosen that even over the Admiral Blue I have now, which is another favorite color.
