Maybe I'm the only one, but I think that the ZL1 looks best in the lighter and brighter colors, as those colors have the appropriate contrast with the carbon fiber hood insert to really highlight it and the associated stripe. With the darker colors the CF hood insert is not nearly as noticeable and some of the visual impact of the vehicle gets lost.

69NMYSS 09-23-2011 03:27 PM

I would have liked to see it with the SSX wheels, still looks awesome.

I think I agree but I have yet to see any of the cars in person. IOM is really the only color I've considered though, I've only briefly been swayed by these photos but I've always come back to IOM. I've always wanted an orange car. I think the different sheen of the stripe and hood helps with the contrast. Black on black might be cool to see.

Agree 100%, also like with the SSX wheels on the lighter colors. Helps tie in all the black (hood insert, body molding, front fascia)

Haha Id love to see the guy's face who buys this if another ZL1 with a custom carbon flash paint job pulls up at a light.

"you mad bro?"

DoggyB22 09-23-2011 03:34 PM

Can't wait to see what it sells for!! This is going to be a 1 of 1 car for the color right?

I do like IBM a lot, but I don't think there is enough contrast between IBM and the black CF hood insert. If Chevrolet would offer the CF hood insert in white, I might choose IBM with a white hood insert and stripe.

Milk 1027 09-23-2011 03:50 PM

Big mistake not offering this color IMO

Damit all I have is 50 cents in the piggy bank.

Sorry to break it to you but.........

Carbon Flash Metallic was part of the 45th anniversary package, but Chevrolet decided to make one exception and paint this 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in that color.

In essence, CFM is 2012-only color and will NOT be available on 2013 Chevrolet Camaros as far as we know.

At least I hope they don't repeat the Synergy Green situation again, if you know what I mean......

The wording truly implies that this will the the only one for 2012 leaving room for more to be produced in 2013.

Looks nice though. I hope to get my hands on a ZL1 once they release one in a stunning blue. To be honest, that's my secret plan. Don't tell my wife. If they release a ZL1 with a blue that I love, I will probably make it a serious goal to get one.

LAWMAN 09-23-2011 04:03 PM

i will be tuned in! and just lastnight the wife told me i could trade for the ZL1 and i have been pondering a choice of color all day,i actually considered the corbon flash and or the new grey,depending on what it is,....but.......i bet the new crystal red is gonna be the hot new seller in any trim of the camaro,i do like my IOM though,but i keep thinking of the crystal red,the way the sun beams off the body lines now that crystal is gonna look very good,the color is currently on Cadillac's,

Dmac 09-23-2011 04:08 PM

That color is stunning!

IOM would be a good choice, but I already have an orange car. I'd really like to see the ZL1 in Crystal Red Tintcoat, because with the black CF hood I think that's the color that I'm going to order, assuming it's available when production starts, that is.
