Looks like ABM to me, and I owned one. Very lovely!

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%.

Again: IT IS NOT ABM. Looks very nice though. Source stated it is a one off Pace Car.

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

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
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.

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 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.

WAY to bright to be IBM. IBM is much darker. Blue Ray Metallic is going to be even darker, if only they would have painted a few cars the new color so people could see what it looks like on a Camaro body instead of trying to track down a 2013 Corvette to see it in person.

Bring ABM back!!

If it's NOT ABM, it's close enough for me!!

If this will be offered as a factory color choice, this means I can FINALLY realize my dream, of owning a Convertible Aqua Blue Metallic Camaro!

Didn't realize they had discontinued ABM. Mine is IBM, knew that color was gone. Whatever color it is, it's nice.
