When we got our first look at the hypersonic gray metallic finish, the deeply dramatic folded creases, and the low profile of our ride, we imaged the black and white setting of a futuristic action movie. Our assignment: shoot the still images of one of the movie’s main leads, the 2022 Corvette Stingray.
Hypersonic Gray Metallic is one of five neutral colors available for the 2022 Corvette, along with arctic white, ceramic matrix gray metallic, black, and silver flare metallic. Hypersonic gray is one of three gray exterior paint options, as well as six metallic colors. And yes, hypersonic gray metallic color is included in the base price of the 2022 Corvette.
Equipped with the optional dual-mode performance exhaust system the new Vette is something to hear. This mid-engine V8 gave us 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque when equipped with this option.
The 2022 Corvette represents the third model year of the eighth-generation Corvette, otherwise known as the Corvette C8. The mid-engined Corvette received minor changes and updates to the only C8 model currently available for this model year, the C8 Stingray.
With a new low rear spoiler and front splitter, along with black ground effects, this new Vette is even more of a stealth beast – living up to being called the ‘American Super Car.’
The aeronautic-themed cockpit envelops the driver, giving them the complete command of intimate performance. The vertical climate controls are a true design standout, topped with ultra-thin vents that minimize the height of the instrument panel to create a low, spacious interior. Add in the squared-off, two-spoke, small-diameter steering wheel the driver’s mind-blowing experience is amplified. From a premium interior to the boldly lean exoskeleton the athletic sculptural shapes inherent in the Stingray convey speed, style, and American Braun, this C8 is the first Corvette to get a right-hand configuration straight from the factory, making it a true world supercar.
