New Chevy Corvette gets a spectacular body colorMarch 31, 2020
A dark red hue appeared on the official website of the company, which supplies the American brand Chevy paints for painting their bodies. The new shade is called Red Mist Tintcoat
Just yesterday we shared the news that the mid-engined Corvette sports coupe will be offered with two new exterior colors. Now there is an understanding of how one of them will look.
So, the Chevy Corvette C8 2021 model year can be purchased with the body color, which received the designation Red Mist Tintcoat (shade of red fog – approx. Edition). It will replace the Long Beach color depicted above. This information was found on a site owned by a company that sells paint for tinting GM cars, which includes Chevy.
At least now we have an idea of what the new color looks like.
It appears to be a darker red shade similar to the old Long Beach red, which was available earlier this year for the Corvette C8, which we are sure can no longer be ordered. Corvette Blogger explains that the new color is also similar to the other two red shades used in the past – Magnetic Red and Crystal Red Metallic. The first was available from 1999 to 2002, and then returned in 2004, and a year later it was discontinued. As for the latter, it has been widely used for generations of C6 and C7, from 2008 to 2015.
It is not yet known how much money Chevy is going to take with Red Mist Tintcoat / Tactical Pearl 1 for the new color, but recall that Long Red was offered for $ 995. It was actually the most expensive paint available for the 2020 Corvette, along with Sebring Orange.
