Paging Mr. Settlemire, haha...come on Scott, come clear this up or us

If this is ABM, why did Chevy choose this color for this high profile car? I ask because the deletion of ABM and the lack of a proper medium metallic blue like this has been such an emotional argument online regarding the Camaro.

The more I see this car, its just a shame this color cannot be ordered. Its just stunning.

Since I just got my SS 2 months ago....I'm hoping this is a new color for 2014....that'll give me some time to enjoy this one.....lol

I do love this blue !

I like a blue that is a blue in any lighting...not almost black in the shade.....Those are sharp too, but I like a real blue best

Me too. Thats the one thing I hated about ABM. It was perfect in 80% of the lighting conditions, but when I saw the color in person on a cloudy day, it looked teal green. I was immediately put off. Pictures just dont capture that very well.

The quote I gave before was directly from Scott.

"It ain't aqua blue metallic and aqua blue metallic isn't coming back."

End Quote. Sorry.

Well....

I could see him saying that it isn't coming back...sure. To blatantly state that it is in no way, shape, or form ABM is just not quite accurate...

I'll say it again....if it isn't the exact ABM paint code...its simply a variation of it. If I go take pictures of mine from the same angles in the sun and in the shade you'll quickly see that the color on this pace car is the same as, or damn close to, a production ABM. Changing colors in the light is one of the beauties of ABM

I really dig that shade of blue. Curious in real life if it looks the same.

It's a little too dark to be ABM, but not dark enough to be IBM. It actually reminds me of the Superior Blue Metallic of a few years ago. Whatever color it is, it looks damn good.

It's too dark to be ABM. It looks more like a royal blue as opposed to an aqua blue

That is Aqua blue, it gets darker at some points and lighter at others, it's all about the angels etc. Thats hardly too dark or light for ABM.

I cant believe gm got rid of the aqua blue or whatever it was called. If they comeout with a similair blue in the ZL1 id prob. get it over the Victory red, or blk i was gonna get. That blue looks so hot in person.

I think it's a rendition of ABM. Similar to what happened with the Red Crystal where GM had to go to another manufacturer for the red paint because "of the tsunami in Japan" is what a dealer told me.

It looks very close to ABM even if they give it a different name.

I'm guessing you haven't seen an aqua blue metallic in real life. In real life in the right sun it is striking and yes it really does look like that.
