Great to see one of the final missing colors!!

I just wish that color was just a little bit lighter. I knew what to expect of this color on the Camaro after seeing it on other cars but all of the IBM cars I've seen, including this one, appear to be almost black except where the light hits an edge. The light just gets sucked into the paint and doesn't reflect blue back out. We should be seeing all kinds of showroom lights reflecting bright blue on the edges of the hood and roofline but it just doesn't look like it's there. The only time that blue seems to pop is where the camera flash hits a spot directly.



Maybe I'll like it more in person when I see it in the spring. With white or silver stripes, of course.

That car is gorgeous. I'm glad it is in a dealership where people can see it.

Nice dark blue color but can someone explain the light/off white seat inserts. I thought except for orange option, seats &/or trim was all solid color. Confused as usual !.

Man that blue is too dark. It is almost black. I'm hoping they offer something a couple shades lighter (besides ABM) for MY2012. But the two tone interior? Man that is gorgeous. I'm getting that for sure. While I was leaning towards blue of some sort, I'm not strongly considering Red Jewel Metallic with cyber gray or silver stripes, a color combo my wife LOVES. Whether I go blue or red, that two tone interior will look perfect.

That's the tan interior color. Apparently instead of being all tan, it is a black/tan combo. Cool!

Nice...I agonized over my switch to the tan interior...having not seen any real pictures. I have had so much black leather, i wanted something different and two-tone. As long as the carpet stays black like that, i think I'm going to be really happy with it.

I'm a fan of the big 3 -- black, white, red -- but that blue is really killer. My first Camaro, a 3rd gen, was the dark blue. Always been a big fan.

OMG! Holy crap! That dealership is like a mile from where I work! WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE CALL ME! Lol!

I was really working today and missed the first post or I would have been there. I'm going in the morning fer sure! I wonder if it will still be there?

Yes, we had a couple of inches of snow last night. Bet they had fun drifting that car into the dealer!

is that interior really that light? it almost looks white... or is it just the picture? not much of a fan of tan interior unless it is on a luxury car... they should offer a white/black two-tone interior

Absolutely BLUE

That is one beautiful car. The metallic blue is gorgeous with a light interior.

Tan must be spectacular!

Thanks for posting these great pictures!

Since the hood doesn't have the scoop, is this a 3.6L car?

I would have liked an image of the floor guage package if the car was equipped with it as part of the RS package?

The interior is a knockout great steering wheel.
The chrome inserts on the tail lamps is a nice touch as are the halo lamps.

Terrific car

Best
Ricky

Ahh they listened!!! I see in the photo the paddle shifters are left down right upshift. Some of their other product have a weird shifter on the wheel. Both side can go up or down.

If its there I will! I want to see it too! I just have to say you guys have so much good info out here it would be the least I could do!

In fact I figured it would be damn near impossible to bring one original thing I could contribute. That would be cool if I could!

That IBM looks pretty good! Too dark for my taste, but ABM will suffice just fine.
The tan interior looks great as well, and i'm not a tan fan!

am i the only one that thinks that is the gray interior? From these pictures it looks almost exactly like the corvette two tone light interior (titanium/black) which is what the interior is suppose to be (titanium). Not to mention the carpet is black. I thought someone had posted the tan interior was suppose to have a tan carpet. am i the only one that thinks this???

either way it looks awesome

How is it that this car is showing up all around the country & at dealerships??? How does everyone know 'where it is is' or 'where it's going to be'? I almost flipped out because this is the first I've seen the IBM which is what i ordered??? Anybody have any ideas how to find out when it's coming to my town because there's dozens of major Chevy dealers here & i pretty much know more about the Camaro than them! Help me out.
The 2-tone interior is ridiculous- 1st i've seen of that.

LT2 - RS appearance package, sunroof, auto. IBM, 2 white hockey racing stripes
