Not liking the white extractor hood but other than that...ZL1's are always awesome.

What are the odds of GM bringing back this color ?....Can't remember them ever bringing back a old color before....but it would sure be welcome !

Would it have been custom painted or provided by GM ?.....Can't imagine GM providing one in a color you can't buy.

Did they call it ABM? It looks a little different. That is one amazing looking Camaro. Was their any other information given? Why get our hopes up by building something like this.

It is Aqua Blue Metallic- I have seen numerous Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro pictures that look just like this and I myself own an Aqua Blue Metallic I get to see this beautiful color every day and when I pull it out of the garage the sun shimmers off it just like this picture. The BEST color on the new Camaro IMO!

So I can take it that the caption didn't say ABM? Do you have a link? Definitely agree with best 5th gen color ever.

If only they had used a good photograph of the color when the Camaro came out, it may have lasted longer. They're getting rid of all their good colors (RJT, ABM, IBM).

It's looking like a dealership just painted a ZL1. Not sure though. Would be great if GM did this as a way of reintroducing ABM or as introducing a new color. The pic looks closer to Jetstream blue to me.

Its not JetStream Blue the reason I know this is because in an issue of Camaro Performers Magazine there is an SS they feature on the cover that is painted in Jet Stream Blue and it looks different this color is Aqua Blue there is no doubt about it. Heres a pic of my Aqua Blue to compair it to.

Just sent an e-mail to a Grand-Am PR guy I know who is there. I'll try to get the lowdown and let you guys know. He's probably too busy to get back until next week, but we'll see.

Wasn't there an early ZL1 built in ABM, a pre production car? Maybe this is it. We need the vin.
