GM released the final 2018 Black Rose Corvette numbers. A total of 219 saleable / retail Corvettes (165 coupes and 54 convertibles) were produced in the shade – 92 were Stingrays, 78 were Grand Sports and 49 were Z06s. The last Black Rose, a Stingray Coupe, rolled off the line on July 27, just before the planned 3-4 month production shutdown for retooling.   Replacing the color is the new Sebring Orange Tint Coat. According to Corvette Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles, people had been pressing him at the Michelin NCM Bash for a few years for a fun, flashy color like a bright orange, but brighter than the Daytona Sunrise. GM Design developed the color in 2015 and had been waiting for an opportunity to bring it to market. Click Here to see when you can order the new color and other details!
