The alacantra suede interior was featured on a CTS displayed. I think most will like it. The seat inserts give a remarkable amount of grip to your backside. I didn't slide on the seat at all, as much as I tried to move around. The steering wheel suede cover also gives a good feel and and a positive non slip grip to it. This material feels "stiffer" or "tougher" than you would imagine, it will hold up to much use. I will order it with no doubts.

Just came back from the show. Not sure how I feel about the car yet. I was not overly impressed with it. But who knows I may change my mind. It is always hard for the buildup to be met with the appropriate reaction.

Interesting info though, I asked the car lady if the color was Victory Red or Torch Red, because I told it was too bright to be Victory Red. She said it was niether color. The ZL1 is actually painted in Fire Red which was a Pontiac color GM used to use. Than I asked her if it was going to be offered for the production ZL1, and she said as of now, yes. She mentioned that GM liked this red the best for this particular car.

She told me the same thing, only she told me it was called "Fire Red"

I thought it was nice, BUT, after sitting in the Z06 vette, I fell in love. Sitting in that car, you KNOW your in something special. It just felt right to me

You've never sat in a ZL1
Trust me

So much better than even a ZR1

LOL, I've sat in a few 5th gen's and I do like them. Visibility could be better, but I can deal. Still, not the same "feel" as sitting in a Z06

You haven't sat in a ZL1!

Trust me I've sat in several 5th gens as well as Corvettes. Yes they are two different cars. But the Corvette interior is old and needs an update. The ZL1 interior is something that I can only compare to the best that Cadillac has to offer
I've never stepped out of car with my hands shaking from the excitedness before the ZL1.

I have to agree with BOTH of you...both cars let you know immediately which you're sitting in. I'm not trying to be sarcastic. Each has it's own feel...and will call to people differently.

Now for the non-diplomatic response:

The ZL1 is....impressive to say the least...obviously, it's interior 90% like other Camaros...but the subtle changes set a whole new 'mood', imo...that car means business in a take-no-prisoners kinda way and you can't help but feel 'unworthy'.

Here's my post from another thread about this lady at Chicago. I'm not really sure she really knows about everything she says, but she sure does a good job of acting like she does.

She said this with conviction like it was fact.

Hmmmm... the ZL1 at C5 fest without the stripe package sure doesn't look like it has a body colored hood insert.

Nice pics keep 'em coming. I won't make it until next saturday. Not for anything, aside from the vettes the excitement from the zl1's development, the power, options, and the numbers guessing is more than enough to keep me entertained. Z06s, despite their performance prowess, are a dime a dozen. The zl1 will definitely be marked by the dwindling clock so I'm not taking any chances on missing one (given enough time on my side and greenery in my wallet lol!!)!

Because the cars are ordered three months in advance.

There are two ZL1 show cars - the one from Chicago (also Dallas/NY) with Silver wheels - and we just finished the second one in time for Camaro5Fest.

Damn skippy. As soon as I sat in the CTS-V with the suede interior, I knew that there was no question that I was ordering it with the ZL1.

I can't wait to own that car. I was kind of forced to put off getting the 2010 due to a deployment, and now, pappa's coming home and getting a 2012 ZL1..and i hope it comes in blue!

That's the DIC, it should be the same color as every other Camaro. I'm guessing the angle gave it more of a green appearance.
