I have a chance to change the exterior color. I'm planning on getting NRB but might still go with Cyber Gray. Has anyone personally seen the C7 in either one, or better yet, both of these colors? I would be interested in your opinions on how it looked first hand in these colors. It will be a Z51 with sliver wheels and Kalahari interior.
Ive seen them both, and even being a fan of blue (my 05 was Lemans Blue), of the 2 I would go cyber grey. The NRB just didn't do it for me, its so dark is almost black. There needs to be some color separation from the 2.
Tough choice, but I would recommend trying to see them both in person. Also different colors respond differently in bright sunlight and dark cloudy days. Especially the metallic flake colors, It 's your car, your choice, go with your gut response...you will know it when you see it!

I've seen the NRB and for me it did not look good. From a distance I thought the car was black, a 'time for a carwash' black. Reminded me of flat black wheels with brake dust all over them. CG is the way to go, and you can choose all the same interior colors that would have matched well with the NRB. i've heard CG has some blue in it, so you may still get the mojo.
I've seen both and the NRB is very dark, it is the exact paint code of the Camero just a different name. Drive by your local chevy dealer. On the coupe it was very dark and lost a lot of the features of the C7.
But saw it in a convertible with a blue top and wow. The blue top made the paint look a lot bluer and you dont have the rear wheel vents.
I recommend that you go down to your local dealer and find an example of each color to ponder. I had the same quandary and that's how I resolved it. They are both great colors & I spent a good 45 minutes until I was sure. Good luck!
All the subtlety and modernism of Cyber Gray, minus the colorless, pedestrian sedan lineage of Accords and Camrys. Take Cyber Gray, saturate it and give it some complexity, and you end up with something like Night Race Blue.
