4 New Corvette Colors for 2017, well not really

The 2017 Corvette will offer 4 new colors for 2017 but technically speaking it will only be 3 new colors. What?
Well GM only allows the Corvette Team 3 new color changes in any given model year. But the team had plans for 4. So for a very limited time (2 weeks) Bowling Green painted 336 specially ordered 2016 Corvettes in Admiral Blue Metallic. This allows Admiral Blue to now be considered a 2016 color and not technically a new color for 2017.
So the 4 new colors being added in 2017 are:
Admiral Blue Metallic
Black Rose Metallic
Sterling Blue Metallic
Watkins Glen Gray Metallic.

AND of those rare 336 2016 Admiral Blue Corvettes Bryner Chevrolet in Jenkintown just got one of them in stock. I saw it Saturday and it's spectacular. I doubt it will last long on their lot.
It is worth a trip to Bryner to see this rare Corvette.

Saw the Admiral Blue one today. VERY similar to the Lemans Blue on my Z06. I was going to get a picture of them side by side but there was a truck in the way when I was leaving. Admiral Blue on the left. Pic of my Z06 for reference....

Exactly what I thought. Just about the same as LeMans Blue. I like it.
