A metallic hugger orange is no longer hugger orange. But to play along...

I would not describe an orange like that found on the concept 'vert as bland, boring and flat. In that sense, it would get my vote.

Whether or not I'd buy it over IOM, I can't answer. I'd have to see the two side by side, but I would likely still be drawn to IOM.

xl1200r,

So by showing a picture of IOM that makes it look closer to Hugger orange instead of the actual color that it is makes you happy, be my guest. I have seen the color in person and it does not look at all like the picture of the Hummer you posted above or the solstice. Under heavy artificial lighting indoors, victory red can look orange as I have witnessed yesterday at the Miami auto show. below is victory red under heavy lighting and it looks more orange than your example of IOM on the solstice.. The pictures even fooled me into thinking it was IOM. However at the autoshow, the red RS badge looks orange due to the lighting as well..

Victory Red RS below (not IOM)

The pictures I posted were only to show that if you can make an orange look both really bright orange, and really dark (almost red), then the real color likely exists somewhere in the middle.

Buy what you like, paint your car like a traffic cone, i don't really care. I've made my case and I'm done with this childish thread. I posted against my better judgement in the first place.

Well, thank you for participating in this thread. It is not childish to have a poll in a forum and discuss it. I disagreed with your initial comments about Hugger orange being bland, dull and boring, however this thread at least proves that at least half of the people in this forum actually like the color and would choose it over IOM even if it wasn't metallic.

Inferno Orange was the color I was going to order on my SS before I bought my Corvette instead. I am a big fan of Hugger Orange! It would be nice to see Hugger Orange on the new Camaro instead of IOM. IMO is to red! Just my thought. Jeff

I have to say, that true Hugger Orange doesn't appeal to me much. I respect it for what it is, but I doubt I'd buy it. I like seeing it on classic chevys. IOM is actually a cool color in direct sunlight. It looks a little murky in the shade. But I can deal with it. My Camaro will either be IOM or Aqua Blue. Still trying to fall in love with AB but having a hard time. But maybe it will grow on me. so I guess I vote for Inferno over Hugger.

While I'd like to see the non-metallic colors make a comeback, I just don't think today's buying public would like the lack of depth that they are used to with the metallic paints. I know you can get plenty of depth from not metallic paints but it usually requires a lot more upkeep to keep it looking like that. With metallics, you'll get it just by washing the car.

Just to add some more photos to the mix, here are a couple more of IOM (taken indoors under warehouse lighting conditions). You can't deny that there is orange in this paint.

Oh wow, now we have a VS. thread on this? You guys are getting serious with this orange thing. If you want to try to get the word out, do what the boys did with the blue colors and make a more straightforward thread name.

I'm not going to bother saying anything about it anymore, since now that I saw IOM in person and up close, it's good enough for me to live with. I'd still like to see Hugger Orange offered, ESPECIALLY the pearl one like on the convertible concept, and I am rootin' for you all to get it done. But you won't be hearing from me anymore, especially after Fbodfather chimed in on the orange thread in the General Camaro Discussion thread.

Those who really want an orange colored car, are most likely looking for a color like Hugger Orange and NOT IOM. Why do you think they were saving it for the convertible? GM needs to listen to the majority (since they rolled out the colors) who's opinion is quite clear on this color issue. As I've said in other posts: If the coupe came in Hugger I would open my wallet immediately. IOM makes me think twice.

No doubt there's orange in there, but that makes it a color changing red. The color is gorgeous, no denying it. And if I wanted red on my car, I would pick this over victory red or the jewel tint. However, I personally don't think red looks right on this car - and that's coming from someone who currently owns a red 91 z28, a red 05 victory hammer, and a red 91 bmw 525i (for sale btw). Huge fan of red - die hard Ferrari nut... it just doesn't look right on the 5th gen for some reason, I don't know what it is... something about it cheapens the look

Same here, I own a Red Mustang and I will not get IOM as it looks to be quite honest RED more than it does orange in whatever light you choose.

Even if GM wanted to change the colour, wouldnt it be too late?,im sure the applique/light pipe can be painted the hugger orange i guess, anyone who saw the iom interior accent package in person, is the leather orangey-red?, or just orange, like would it look matching if they combined with hugger orange mettalic? (honestly asking) Personally i love the IOM, but i know i would love the covertible orange more, but im still very happy with my order, IOM!...i would be really pissed if they did a flip the next year and went hugger orange mettalic...definitly pissed

Just an FYI...the photo below is IOM according to fbodfather, which blows my mind. How can it look so amazing in that light and so red in other photos? I was going to post this in the other threads where we were discussing this but they're closed for some reason.

If it is IOM, it must be under extreme heavy artificial lighting because that does not look at all like IOM at all. And if you like the way it looks in the picture, the color it resembles the most is hugger orange.. IOM is metallic and reddish looking and what is in the picture is flat so that is strike 2 against it being IOM. Until Scott personally vouches for that statement in this thread and explains why the color looks so different in person vs this picture (photo-shopping, lighting, etc), I won't believe it. And I'm quite sure if you were to ask Scott what the color in the pictures of the cutaway posted here more closely resembles, he would say either hugger or tangier orange.

THAT's IOM??? I find that hard to believe. Not saying your lying, or that Scott was smoking crack or anything. But the first pics we saw of IOM were taken inside under similar lighting and it didnt' look ANYTHING like that. IOM needs good light to show its orange.

If there is no possibility of Chevy adding that bright orange color to their lineup I will have mine painted that color, but it has already been stated by a few that we will gladly pay extra for that color if we need to. Thanks in advance.


Inferno Orange Metallic - -the color we're offering!

As I already stated he did verify that it was IOM, and I doubt he would lie.
