The new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette C8 is here, spreading its high-performance goodness from the dyno to the drag strip. Now, information on the upcoming 2021 Corvette has leaked onto the internet, including insights into upcoming paint colors and stripe options.
As tipped in a recent report from Corvette Blogger, which cites recent social media posts for the leak, the 2021 Corvette will get two new exterior colors, specifically Silver Flare (GSJ) and Red Mist Tintcoat (GPH). Both colors will arrive as replacements for existing hues offered with the 2020 Corvette, namely Blade Silver metallic (GAN) and Long Beach Red Metallic Tintcoat (G1E), respectively.
We already got a taste for the Silver Flare color courtesy of the Corvette C8.R race car, which dropped cover sporting the new hue alongside a special race livery treatment. Meanwhile, Red Mist Tintcoat is said to be a combination of Crystal Red Metallic and Magnetic Red Metallic. Red Mist Tintcoat can also be seen as a color chip at automotivetouchup.com, which is listed as Tactical Pearl 1, but carries the same RPO code (GPH) as the new 2021 Corvette’s Red Mist Tintcoat color.
To note, we’ve covered the 2020 Corvette’s various color options in-depth in a previous post, so check that out for more information on what the current model as to offer.
