Should General Motors Add this Color to the Corvette C8 Color Options?

We noticed one of the new Mid engine Corvette C8 owners changed the color of their Corvette as soon as they got it. Most of the time people will go with a wrap especially on YouTube where it has become a standard video for upload to show a new wrap on whatever new car they just got not just the C8 Corvette.

Also, Car or Vehicle Wraps even without a color chosen protect the paint on cars as well. However, Pure Automotive actually painted theirs at their shop!

To give you some background and per their YouTube Channel, Pure Automotive Performance is the parent company of FastC8.com and SwapYour86.com.

Established in June of 2012, we are a one stop shop for general automotive repair, automotive performance upgrades, and custom automotive paint and body. -FastC8.com is our newest addition, it will be your source for any and everything C8 Corvette related! We hope to be developing our own line of parts, as well as testing and installing all the aftermarket parts available for the C8 !

Here is their videos of painting a Corvette C8 what they call PPG Spitfire Green and we love it! It reminds of us of the exotic car green you see on Lambos and McLarens and we think Chevy and GM should add this green to their line up!

Here is the Paint process for getting their Corvette C8 this amazing green and a video of a recent car meet with another YouTuber ItalianStallion410.
