Not liking the white extractor hood but other than that...ZL1's are always awesome.

PAUL SS 05-31-2012 12:28 PM

Hey, they are stealing my red and white accent on ABM!

bandit38 05-31-2012 12:44 PM

What are the odds of GM bringing back this color ?....Can't remember them ever bringing back a old color before....but it would sure be welcome !

Would it have been custom painted or provided by GM ?.....Can't imagine GM providing one in a color you can't buy.

bandit38 05-31-2012 12:46 PM

Reminds me so much of Bright Blue Metallic....it was a spectacular color !

MackMan 05-31-2012 01:06 PM

:drool: I love this color and this car! Gimmie!! haha. :bow:

Did they call it ABM? It looks a little different. That is one amazing looking Camaro. Was their any other information given? Why get our hopes up by building something like this.

It is Aqua Blue Metallic- I have seen numerous Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro pictures that look just like this and I myself own an Aqua Blue Metallic I get to see this beautiful color every day and when I pull it out of the garage the sun shimmers off it just like this picture. The BEST color on the new Camaro IMO!:D

Rubble2240 05-31-2012 01:11 PM

That color and wheel combo are great

So I can take it that the caption didn't say ABM? Do you have a link? Definitely agree with best 5th gen color ever.

If only they had used a good photograph of the color when the Camaro came out, it may have lasted longer. They're getting rid of all their good colors (RJT, ABM, IBM).

The link didnt tell the color it just said it was a pace car it was on Team Chevys Facebook page.

PYROLYSIS 05-31-2012 01:22 PM

It's looking like a dealership just painted a ZL1. Not sure though. Would be great if GM did this as a way of reintroducing ABM or as introducing a new color. The pic looks closer to Jetstream blue to me.

RockyS18 05-31-2012 01:26 PM

What a nice color. I wish it had a black stripe/hood intake.

Chief Bob 05-31-2012 01:30 PM

Love it!

Its not JetStream Blue the reason I know this is because in an issue of Camaro Performers Magazine there is an SS they feature on the cover that is painted in Jet Stream Blue and it looks different this color is Aqua Blue there is no doubt about it. Heres a pic of my Aqua Blue to compair it to.

Just sent an e-mail to a Grand-Am PR guy I know who is there. I'll try to get the lowdown and let you guys know. He's probably too busy to get back until next week, but we'll see.

35th02ss 05-31-2012 01:34 PM

it could be but they paint cars all the time for a race....

Kvapil28 05-31-2012 01:36 PM

Love that color

PAUL SS 05-31-2012 01:45 PM

Wasn't there an early ZL1 built in ABM, a pre production car? Maybe this is it. We need the vin.
