Can any one shed some light on the Cyber Gray Camaro?

Hey threr to all. Sorry I have not wrote any thing on here in some time. I am in the last days of being in Iraq before I get to go home. I just wanted to ask if any one has seen or hurd any thing reguarding the Cyber Gray Camaro. This is a color that I dont think any one has seen out side of working for GM. Does any one know why there has not been one done yet, or if there has been one painted why GM has not elected to let the public see this car of rwhat ever reason?

Thanks

Thanks for your service! I think you and about everyone else on this site has been asking the same question. No one has seen a CGM Camaro at this point. At least no one that is talking about it. There are some pictures on here of a Vette with CGM. That's about as close as we have gotten. Rumor has it that there are members stalking the Oshawa plant trying to see one, but no luck yet.

Just look at the times of some of these posts. That should answer your question.

New rumor: there is a bounty out for a picture of CGM from 80Z, Dylan or any other anonymous source.

It is possible that the factory hasn't received the color yet to paint one.

I know for a fact that they have painted at least one in CGM. It's just that us common folk haven't seen it yet.

I'm worried about CGM. I ordered it but now I'm having second thoughts. Reason being that it seems CGM looks very bleh on the Traverse but looks pretty good on the Vette. I haven't seen a traverse in person but the vette looked good when I saw it. It didn't seem to look quite as good as the pics I've seen though. It just didn't pop quite as much as I'd hoped.

Here's a comparison...





The Vette (particularly the first one) seems to just pop way more than the Traverse. Are they painting the Vette with a higher quality paint? Will the Camaro look like the Vette or like the Traverse? If it looks dull like the traverse, I'll pick another color. But if it pops like it does on the Vette, it's by far my pick. It's almost like the Vette has a lot more metal fleck in the paint than the Traverse. Then again, maybe it's all just perception and the paint is good on the Traverse.

The first vette picture was taken during sunrise or set...that would explain the pop of the color. ALL colors look different depending on lighting.

In fact.........take a look at the second 'Vette picture, and the second Traverse picture...they look pretty similar.

I think a large part of how CGM looks is how the sun reflects off the paint. You get that pop on the Corvette because of its curves whereas on the Traverse, it seems to be a little more boxy so it'll look a little more flat. At least that's what I think.

Lighting helps, but i think it is also better because the vette has more body lines than the traverse, gives the overall look of the car a better appearance. Different panels at different angles get different shades of light.

Good points. So the next question, will it pop on the Camaro?

I'm gonna guess that only Fbodfather is going to know that. I will be extremely disapointed if this color doesn't pop on the camaro.

Check out some pictures of the top half of the Dale Jr. concept car shown at SEMA...apply that to the rest of the car using your imagination...I think it might even pop MORE than the Corvette because the Camaro seems to have more character and body lines.

Camaro has more character and body lines than C6 Corvette?

They're both freak mobiles, but I think they are equally vivacious.

This is as close we're gonna get for now.

Please note that there were some unflattering pictures of this color, but you have to factor in the quality of the camera and the lighting angles. These pics were the most flattering of all those pics.

I think it looks great.

I have a Cyber Gray 09 Z06 and it has to be one of most beautiful color cars I have ever owned. I just may have to get my camaro CG as well.

A little lighter and I think the CG would be bland, but it's dark enough that I believe it'll really look good. Just remember, almost everything looks better in a good picture...extra saturation, etc. Now that's all any of us have to go by, so ultimately you're gonna have to take a bit of a chance....well, not me - black. Ha!

It's most definitely my second choice.

I'm impressed at all the colors availabe for this car. The colors not available, most of us wouldn't want to be seen dead in.


2SS/RS Black/Black w-Cyber Gray stripes/Auto(under reconsideration) - ordered 10/18/08
