This thing is just incredible in person. However, I think white looks a lot better

I went last Monday, and have to say I don't care for this car in black. Maybe if the splitter, rockers and some of the trim was more of a matte black I'd like it. Just seemed too body kit looking to me. The silver looks far better IMO. Awesome car nonetheless.

The Z06 (why are people still calling it the Z07?) was absolutely gorgeous. Cannot wait to see that thing in action.

I think it looks stunning in lighter colors like white, silver and red... due to the contrasts. And it's much more subdued (more sinister) in darker shades like black, blue ray, and ashen gray. But of course hands down, an awesome car indeed.

Because the C7 Z06's at NAIAS had the Z07 performance package upgrade... so they are technically correct.

Just amazing! I truly enjoy these cars... I find the fact that Chevy, Ford and Dodge have pushed these iconic rides to new heights in a time where we have become so conscience of our energy consumptions... that we can still find true American performance and power... true, there are many cars with greater potential and style... but only in American raw, brute and a touch of elegance do we find the true essence of our dream. I need nothing of your pretty thousand dollar emanations of our future... only can the American Muscle be envisioned again and again with such finale detail and remembrance of our heritage. If I had a dollar I could seed in the earth of our land, would It bear the fruit of American speed!

...the catch is....why does GM produce a pre-production ride in a color you can't get? What's the point beyond marketing and attraction to gain attention, and then not deliver on the final product. That's a bummer. I understand it's a custom paint job and all...but why bait and switch <on the gorgeous white color>.

Dude, you are literally on the same wavelength as me, I was about to type that...

That pre-production white was the tops!

I like white, but to me it looks better in black.

It's so they don't accidentally sell the pre-production units.

I loved it too. Sad to see it not offered.
