Nice. Reminds me back when the first 2010 camaro came off the line which was also his by the way. He was there and there were post about it. Money does give options.

It is possible.......once. That's why Hendrick's car is so special. As long as they are still producing 45th ann. editions, there is still Carbon Flash in the paint hoppers....

What remains to be seen is if they choose to make the color a regular option in 2013...or discontinue it.

Looks black to me, no flakes that I can see. Of course lighting does play a factor, but after looking at all pics. I call Black.

Hendrick also got #1. Wasn't #1 painted black? Could this be #1 instead of #69?

Right now he has a 67 original camaro (been repainted) in showroom. Painted stripes and cleared over top. Great looking! They have more Camaro's and Vettes on that lot than I have ever seen! And, they move them!

lol I think he got the Black AND the CF. Franks link has some good shots.


It could be black and the number 1 ZL1 and not the special CFM number 69, but regardless Carbon Flash Metallic is basically a metallic black. In fact, at one point in time the exact same color was called Black Granite.

In certain lighting conditions, like this, it is essentially black. In the sun, the silver metallic really sparkles and can make the car look like a very dark shade of gray.

I'm sure there would be a lot of people upset but I'd love to see t available for 2013.

[QUOTE=Newportmedic;4412609]Mr. Rick Hendrick of Hendrick Motorsports joined workers at the GM Oshawa Assembly Plant today to celebrate the start of production for the ZL1, which should arrive at dealers next month. Will your next Camaro be a ZL1?
