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?

I saw CFM at the LA auto show and it looks pretty cool with good lighting...I bet it looks even better in natural sunlight.

Some Very exciting times are ahead folks!

Here is one of our Cruzes. A '12 in Black Granite. It looks solid black under certain conditions and under sunlight the Metallic pops just like the IBM. Love it. Congrats to Mr Hendrick.

Pretty hard to tell from a distance... Here's my Granite Black Tahoe and a 45th w/ Carbon Flash... (exact same colors) sitting side by side.
