Will Detroit Auto Show Bring Crystal Red ZL1??

The Detroit Auto Show starts on Jan. 09, 2012. I am hoping that Chevy announces the release of Crystal Red for the ZL1 and Camaros. With any luck there will be a few ZL1's there showing Crystal Red and other combinations with the Exposed Carbon Fiber Hood and Gray stripe package. I passed up my first allocation waiting for Crystal Red so I hope they announce it will be available at the show so I can catch the second allocation. Anybody have any insight about ZL1's/Camaros at the show?

Yes I talked to the main man last night and he said they are bringing only crystal Red.


I'm full of crap. I have no Idea. I would like to see one in the flesh with that color though.

That is a nice thought, but I do not think that I am that lucky!

Hopefully they have a coupe available to sit in for this round of auto shows starting in Detroit. We'll see what color it is.

I've heard that Crystal Red Tintcoat will be available later in 2012 possibly as a 2013 model featuring a Carbon Fibre "package" with CF spoilers & interior panels etc.

Have you heard that, now?

Is it too much to wish they bring one ZL1 in every color combination possible between wheels, hood, stripes, and paint?

That'd only be 64 Camaros....there's room, right?

Is this the Crystal Red? If yes, it's super gorgeous with CF parts and no stripe.

It is a photoshop rendering that was done for me by LoneStarCamaro. It was done on the Carbon Edition ZL1 which is why it has the two tone wheels. It is a very hard color to render exactly but this will give you an idea of what mine will look like. Exposed Carbon fiber hood and no stripes with polished five spoke wheels. It has been said that Crystal Red will be available after the first of the year, so I am hoping that it will be announced that it is now available at the Detroit Show in 10 days. I am keeping my fingers crossed. The online Camaro brochure has some pictures of a Crystal Red Camaro that gives a more accurate picture of the color on the Camaro. Happy New Year to everyone.

Good enough, gives us an idea. I love that [mature] Red.
Man, looks like I have to make a two hour drive to see your baby when she arrives. Happy NY!

I figure the CF Exposed Hood should match my hair and I needed a contrasting color. I have not owned a red car before so this this should contrast nicely with my hair and the Marina Blue Corvette. I will be picking up the car near Tampa so maybe can get together on the drive back to Ft. Lauderdale. Happy New Year to you too!

And Htron, for the record, it is a very distinguished gray color. A few more years left before it goes white and I have to start using a cane to work the clutch. Have a safe New Years.

Private show(s) are the 9th to the 13th. Public starts the 14th. Going opening day due to certain surprises I've found. Someone left the ZR1 and a CTS-V Coupe open the past two years. Later found out they shut them up after day 1. Maybe they'll leave the ZL1 open?

I did not see the white until I posted my reply. I tried to change it but you were too fast for me.

I'll make the 4 hour trip for sure if they are going to let people sit in the coupe. It would be nice to know one way or the other before heading out, but I may go regardless.

If you decide to go, see if you can twist one of the GM reps into giving you information about Crystal Red coming on line. I know 8 hours of driving plus 5 hours of walking and two of sitting in a ZL1, will make for a very long day. Thanks, have fun and be safe.

Well hopefully whatever vehicles GM brings to the Detroit Auto Show, they will bring to the Toronto Auto Show. I asked my wife last night when I first saw this thread if she wanted to go. I'm hoping for at least one ZL1 :(. I'll go and look at the high end $250k cars, but we will be making a bee line to the GM section as soon as we get there.

Will do.

I'm thinking about spending the night on Sunday and going Monday the 16th to avoid the large crowd. Of course, pictures will be posted
