We’ve already seen the 2020 Corvette Stingray in a variety of colors including Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat, Sebring Orange Tintcoat and Arctic White, among many others, but a real-world sighting of an Accelerate Yellow example of the car has remained rather elusive.
However, General Motors brought an Accelerate Yellow 2020 Corvette Stingray to the recent San Diego Auto Show, allowing eager Corvette fans to see what the vehicle looks like in the eye-popping new exterior color.
The Accelerate Yellow Vette shown in San Diego is actually a 2020 Corvette Convertible. Interestingly, the car has matching yellow painted brake calipers to go along with its yellow body. It also features bright silver wheels and appears to be equipped with the optional Z51 performance package, as evidenced by the rather subtle front splitter.
In all, the 2020 Corvette color palette consists of twelve exterior colors, including three gloss options, seven metallic options, and two premium tintcoats.
- Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat
- Sebring Orange Tintcoat
- Arctic White
- Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic
- Blade Silver Metallic
- Accelerate Yellow Metallic
- Shadow Gray Metallic
- Torch Red
- Rapid Blue
- Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic
- Zeus Bronze Metallic
It’s worth noting that Accelerate Yellow differs from Velocity Yellow – the shade of yellow that was offered on the C7 Corvette. Accelerate Yellow is much lighter than Velocity Yellow and appears almost like highlighter yellow in the sun. However, we wouldn’t be surprised if GM offered Velocity Yellow later on in the C8 Corvette’s life cycle. We know the automaker hasn’t entirely abandoned the darker yellow color, as the Corvette C8.R still appears in a darker yellow.
Accelerate Yellow is one of the optional colors on the 2020 Corvette Stingray and, along with Rapid Blue, will cost $500 extra. Sebring Orange Tintcoat and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat are also $995 options.
