I agree...it's about the only color I'd consider getting instead of black.

Now "Chevy Camaro" on Facebook posted that same car from another angle !!

Lot of attention for a color we can't buy....makes me real curious.

holy crap, I just saw that on FB and came right over to Camaro5. I was about to be insanely jealous because I thought they finally brought back ABM and I had missed the Camaro5 announcement. But phew, it's a one off... I don't have to be jealous yet. But you know they are doing this to gauge interest in the color again right? If people respond to it positively, they'll bring it back. I hope by the time they do. I'll be able to afford the switch (meaning my wife will let me haha)

I mean, I love my white... but I always told myself if the ZL1 (or Z28 as I originally thought it would be) came out in an awesome blue (ABM) I'd sell my SS. If they actually do this, I'm gonna really be excited again.

Just heard back. Here is a pic of it on Belle Isle a few minutes ago. He's looking for the Chevy rep to verify color and will let me know.

It is NOT ABM...I have confirmed this...a one off pace car for the race.

Here is a direct quote: "It ain't aqua blue metallic and aqua blue metallic isn't coming back." Sorry folks.

Raise enough stink with GM and this new color may make production (My words not my source in any way, shape or form) Look what happened with Synergy Green - enough yelling got us the color for a second year on V8 and V6 cars...maybe fans of this color will be able to raise enough support to convince GM to build you one.

I thought from the second angle it was a little darker than ABM.....I sure do like it !

It very well may be ABM but it could be the Imperal Blue. There were 4 made according to the NCM who is raffling one of them off. The pictures look strikingly close other than the hood and stripe.

My wife was warned along time ago when they come out with a color closer to the 69 Royal Blue I will be trading in the 2010. lol

Maybe the new Heritage Blue Metallic that's coming out on the 2013 GMC trucks ?

Looks pretty close to me....the lighting is different so it's hard to say 100%.

Nope. That's the same color as Topaz Blue on the Chevys. It's darker than the blue on that Camaro.

The picture on the raffle page is crappy and not a good indication of the color for a IBM ZL1. Someone posted pictures of a CTF IBM ZL1 but I can't find the thread any more (Really GM? You had the mods delete it? ).

This is the only copy I could find from that set of photos.

I wish that would work. We've been asking for metallic blue since the day ABM was cancelled. A medium blue metallic is by far the most requested color on this site. Blue Ray Metallic is NOT the answer.
