One of the most confusing things about a Corvette transparent top is that it is hard to tell what color is it and whether or not it is actually transparent. The truth is that the C7 Corvette see-through roof is actually transparent, or see-through if you will, black, or blue. It all depends on how you are looking at the item and from what angle. It is the major reason that a lot of people have trouble finding what they want when they are looking for it. It gets confusing when there are pictures of the roof being black or blue.
The Color Black
If you are standing over the rooftop then the top looks black. it is to give you more privacy and to stop other people from seeing what is inside your vehicle. It might seem like this is a roof that you cannot see through but you can. It is a big reason skip this item. All they see is a picture of a black top and they do not think it is the one they want when, in actuality, it is the exact one that they want. The black also seems too dark to see through and to be "transparent" on the other side.
The Color Blue or Transparent
If you read the previous statement then you are right. However, you are only partly right because the blue color shows underneath. However, it is not a deep blue and it is transparent enough to show you what is going on overhead. Hence, the top is also blue and transparent. If you are expecting true transparent then you might have to wait awhile for technological advancements. However, if you like or can tolerate the blueish hue while still getting your transparency then you will love the C7 Corvette transparent top. You might even like that it has a multitude of colors. It might actually be something to brag about to your non-Corvette owning friends. There are many times on this site where we talk about things you do to impress passersby which usually equates to owning a Corvette. However, there are times when you want to impress other owners and make them jealous which the transparent top is perfect for but it does not mean that the normal person does not also think it is impressive. In fact, they will probably think it is more so than your Corvette owning friends who are probably going to start plotting getting their own anyway.
Ok, I get it. But Does It Fit My Vehicle?
