Corvette Museum Reveals the Colours and Options 2020 Buyers Picked

All the cool (and some of the inane) 2020 Corvette stats

  • Torch Red most popular colour

  • Cargo net the least popular option


Wondering what the most popular colour was for the first year of C8 Chevrolet Corvette production? Wonder no more, as that and more details about the first model year of the new Corvette have been revealed by the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY.

Torch Red took the top spot, with 25 percent of buyers picking that one, per the official Chevrolet production numbers given to museum officials. Next up was Arctic White (15 percent) Black (11.7 percent), and Sebring Orange and Elkhart Lake Blue, both at around 6.8 percent. Least often chosen were Accelerate Yellow (3.38 percent) and Zues Bronze (2.69 percent).

A whopping 92 percent of buyers picked Carbon Flash badges, and more than three-quarters went with the Z51 package that included upgraded engine cooking, suspension tweaks, and aerodynamic aids (as well as 5 hp from a new exhaust). Only 58.4 percent opted for the front lift package, meaning that lower front splitters might be a hot commodity at Chevrolet parts counters over the next few years.

In the odd model year, which started late because of a strike and then was hit by the pandemic, 20,368 cars were built. 82.4 percent of them were coupes. A little over half picked magnetic ride control, while the most popular brake colour was red and the most common interior black leather. If you’re one of the 782 buyers who picked the two-tone blue interior, then we applaud your choice.

145 buyers opted for the first aid kit, while 1,648 wanted the premium floor mats. The least common dealer-installed accessory was the cargo net with just 54 wanting that one. Canadians bought 7.3 percent of total production, while 31 buyers decided to pick their VIN and 943 took delivery of their new Corvette at the museum. Hey automakers, release more of this level of data. Especially for interesting stuff like Jeeps and the new Bronco!
