Writing about paint colors is usually a drab task, and one that we rarely stoop to here are MC&T. However, when it comes to the iconic Corvette and the rabid fanbase that comes with it, no detail is too small. And it just so happens that yesterday marked the start of the 2021 NCM Bash at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. And with that came the announcement of a trio of new 2022 Corvette colors. They are, in no particular order: Amplify Orange Metallic, Caffeine Metallic, and Hypersonic Gray Metallic.

The names of the three colors for the 2022 model year Corvette have been leaked previously, but today Chevrolet shared with us a set of photos that depict the mid-engine sports car in these new hues.

Compared to Sebring Orange, which is going away, the new Amplify Orange is a brighter, more vivid metallic shade that seems to pop more in the light. In contrast, Caffeine Metallic seems to take a more caramel shade of brown compared to the Zeus Bronze it replaces. Hypersonic Gray Metallic swaps out Shadow Gray from the 2021 Corvette Stingray, and does so in a lighter shade with less of a blue tint. These changes are supposedly it for the 2022 Corvette colors. Customer orders for the 2021 Corvette are otherwise halted, so if you were one of the few that were itching to drive a C8 in Zeus Bronze, you’re going to have to accept Caffeine as an equal substitute.

The 2022 model year is expected to be another big one for the C8, highlighted by the debut of the all-new Corvette Z06 that is expected to show face in July. This “race car with a license plate” will debut with a DOHC flat-plane crank V8, dubbed LT6, and will push out just over 600 horsepower, making it the most powerful naturally aspirated production V8 engine in the world.

We don’t expect any big details about this upcoming supercar during the 2021 NCM Bash, so you’ll have to watch this space for updates on the 2022 Corvette beyond just the new paint colors.
