Can't wait to see it in CFM. I wonder what wheels they'll go with?

The first and only Laguna seca blue Boss sold for 425,000 with 375,000 going to charity. I can see the ZL1 racking up around 300,000.

So that already means we wont see carbon flash on our regular ZL1s, correct?

I wonder what the CGM replacement will be then...

Sounds like the last # of the SLP ZL1s that is being auctioned off. Not the factory production chevrolet ZL1...so I would put in an est. of it selling at 250k due to its color, rarity, last of the SLP ZL1s, and early buy for someone who wants to brag a lot.

HA...guessed it right!

Well, I guess that answers my question if the ZL1 will be offered in Carbon Flash.

........cool for whoever has the deep pockets required for the one @ BJ, but kinda blows for those of us that were hoping we could get the ZL1 in Carbon Flash.

No, it's not a 2011 SLP "ZL1." It's clearly stated that it's a 2012 Chevrolet factory ZL1.

He did not say this would be the only ZL1 in CFM but this would be the only 2012 ZL1 in CFM. I am guessing that CFM will be like synergy green that was offered first only on a special edition and the following year offered on all the camaros. I am hoping to see CFM on the 2013 Camaro ZL1.

What I find interesting about this car is the VIN because it sounds like the ZL1 will have separate VINs from the other camaros. Does anyone know if there was a 2012 camaro produced with the VIN ending in 00069?

they are making the vin end in 69 because back in 1969 only 69 ZL1 Camaro's were produced and the carbon flash will be one of one

A VIN is a serial number and the 69th car produced would get the VIN ending with 00069. GM would have to either skipped 00069 or give the ZL1 camaros separate VINs or GM doesn't put the VINs in sequence.

Good point, would be cool if zl1's had their own vin.
Would this indicate a different model rather than just another trim level?

Thanks for sharing that with us Jedi,...reading it gave me goose bumps. This is a splendid kickoff for the ZL1! I like how they refer to it as "a complete high performance sports car". Awesome deal Chevy...

I would murder everyone on this site for Carbon Flash Metallic to be a standard color option on the ZL1
