Chevy’s 2022 Corvette offers a total of 12 exterior colors, three of which are new: Hypersonic Gray Metallic, Amplify Orange Tintcoat, and Caffeine Metallic, while deleting Sebring Orange Tintcoat, Shadow Gray Metallic, and Zeus Bronze Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Caffeine hue.
Assigned RPO code G48 and touch-up paint code WA-613G, Caffeine Metallic is one of five warm hues available for the 2022 Corvette, along with Amplify Orange Tintcoat, Accelerate Yellow Metallic, Torch Red, and Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat. Caffeine is also one of six metallic hues.
For reference, the 2022 Corvette color palette includes the following 12 exterior color options:
- Caffeine Metallic
- Arctic White
- Ceramic Matrix Gray Metallic
- Hypersonic Gray Metallic
- Amplify Orange Tintcoat
- Accelerate Yellow Metallic
- Torch Red
- Rapid Blue
- Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat
- Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic
- Silver Flare Metallic
The new Caffeine Metallic color is included in the base price of the 2022 Corvette. Caffeine Metallic is available with all interior color combinations and all trim levels. In our opinion, Silver Flare Metallic would pair nicely with the Jet Black, Natural, and Sky Cool Gray interior color combinations.

Production of the 2022 Corvette began at the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant in early September 2021. Recently, the facility was running at a lower capacity than usual during the first week of November due to a parts shortage. That said, availability of the 2022 models in the new Caffeine Metallic hue at the dealer level is scarce, which will likely continue being the case until supply catches up with demand. As early as June 2021, demand for the Corvette C8 has outpaced supply by a substantial margin.
