First Pics of Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro
 
3 Attachment(s)
Finally found some pics that someone snagged with their cameraphone of an Aqua Blue Metallic LT/RS. I wish they were taken with a better camera and at a higher resolution but it's better than photoshop. :coolpics:

That's a good looking blue,that will be a winner

Camaro_Corvette 11-17-2008 12:54 PM

Sweet, now i'm just waiting for the color that i plan on getting.

kozzmo49 11-17-2008 01:01 PM

is there a reason y they made a car with a color that comes out later than other colors that come out first?

Not sure I understand your comment. Aqua Blue Metallic is one of the initial release colors. Summit White is the only delayed color.

ABM sure looks a lot darker than I thought it would. How much darker could IBM be?

That probably is a slightly different shade of white or else hand painted. There is another thread that talks about the reason for the delay having to do with changing out the paint color in ON.

kozzmo49 11-17-2008 01:40 PM

no actually i think im right... it doesnt come out till november

Camaro_Corvette 11-17-2008 01:41 PM

It is November.

tmane'sLtRs 11-17-2008 01:44 PM

i believe abm comes out the same as every other color but anyways this color looks darker than abm's that i have seen maybe a newer blue that they are testing?

Mr Twisty 11-17-2008 01:53 PM

Nice find! I like it

Stingr69 11-17-2008 02:07 PM

Was those pictures taken in Detroit? It looks like Fishbones Grill in the background of the second picture. I was there a few weeks ago.

Looks like IBM more than ABM to me. :chevy:

-Mark.

kozzmo49 11-17-2008 02:11 PM

it comes out in november... for the last time

UCF w00t 11-17-2008 02:25 PM

That's exactly what I thought when I first saw it. It sure doesn't have that "aqua" tint to it.

GTAHVIT 11-17-2008 02:31 PM

That's too cool!

Blue rocks. Still getting CGM on mine... But blue is my number three color.

Nope, sorry but the one in this post is ABM. I've seen ABM on an HHR recently at a local dealer. IBM is A LOT darker. I've seen IBM in person on multiple Malibu and HHR models and there is no way that the photos I posted are IBM. On dim/overcast days like the one those photos were taken, IBM actually appears closer to black with some blue highlights.

Here's ABM on the HHR:

and here's IBM on the HHR:

Hmmmm. That's interesting then. I can't stand the color they have for the rendered ABM but the one in the pics looks really nice. And so does IBM on those other cars. I wish they had them all sitting next to each other in the same lighting on real cars. Picking a color now seems to be an impossible task. I was pretty set on CGM but now I'm second guessing the choice.

TJ91 11-17-2008 02:57 PM

it definitly is ABM but looks darker because its a cloudy day, Dylan, where do you see the white ones runnig around? I live in Toronto as well and would love to see an iver running around, let me know

radz28 11-17-2008 03:03 PM

AWE MAN!!! I like that blue too!!!

Nice find :D
