Darlene Lipuma got is our next two photos of the Rapid Blue C8 Corvette Stingrays.  She tells Vette Vues "Saw it in person. AMAZING color. The two in the picture with Tadge were the test mules, which might explain the slight difference in color."

Darlene shot this photo and says "You can tell there's a difference in this one too, even though it's not quite so noticeable."
