Blue is such a simple color to do. It's one of the primary colors, in fact.

How the hell is it that GM can continue to f*ck up blue on the Corvettes is beyond me. JSB makes me twitch, and this one makes me want to vomit. Admiral Blue anyone? LeMans Blue anyone? Those were good blue colors.

Bleah, IMHO.

I've often referred to JSB as "Smurf Blue". A buddy of mine topped that with the new one when he saw it. He said, "Eek. My Little Pony Blue?"

I like it. I'm now going to refer to this abomination of a color as MLP Blue.

Thank you, why not Admiral Blue again or Lemans Blue. I don't want my blue to have a "baby blue cast or green cast". I can't imagine a room full of "Corvette People" or "Team Corvette" all said, YES! Thats the color we need for 2012! WTF! Bring back some of the older blues, Bridgehampton Blue, Bryar Blue, Marina Blue, something?

JSB is my favorite color on a C6. However, that new blue is hideous.

It is a horrible color, but I bet it will be worth some money 20-30 years from now.

Lemans Blue, Electron Blue or Admiral Blue again would be great.

Assuming anyone actually buys that color. Well maybe they will cancel the color during the production run and bring back black!

Wife said it looks like 'Ghost Blue'. It looks terrifically stupid with comp grey wheels. Let's see one with chrome wheels (even though I'm not a chrome wheel guy), that might help with contrast. I just can't see anybody specifically choosing that color. And the 'color team' at GM needs to be pimp slapped.

Agree with the best blue colors - electron, marina, Le Mans - this won't go down even in the Top 10. That's a fleet color.

My Grandma would call this powder blue or Robin's egg blue. It reminds of the special edition pontiac firebird in 1977 they called the "lady bird". Someone should order a zr1 in this color with the siena interior. A real low number of these will be made. A true collectors item in 100 years.
