Flat/matte white Z/28 at Philly auto show?

I was at the Philly auto show today and they had a Z/28... Once I was done drooling for awhile, I noticed it was a flat "frozen" white and was wondering if this was going to be a production color?? Or just one of the show cars. It almost seemed like a vinyl wrap...

Also, one guy (bless his heart) walked right past this Z/28 and also past a new ZL1 as if they didn't exist, but went to take pictures of the ONLY non-RS, 1LS Camaro in the building. He walked away smiling after appreciating it for awhile. It was adorable, like watching a baby fumble around with things.

That is a flat matte paint job the paint is actually a Mercedes benz color, It will not be a production color and was only used on the first show car to gain attraction

They also paint the newer BMW's that color. Did you get a side pic of the wheels?

Makes sense, thank you. Seems kind of like a double-edged sword though because it certainly got my attention, but I was hoping beyond hope the flat look wasn't going to be produced. Thanks!

I had forgotten they're running the Pzero Trofeo's in 305 on all four corners... that's an insane amount of tire for the front from a factory!

Didnt the Caddy have a color similar to that a few years ago? We use to call it egg shell white.

without having seen it in person, it looks like Icy White Metallic, the same color as the SSX
