2013 Victory Red

I went to one of the dealers in my area to see their selection of '13 camaros. I wanted to see if they had ordered any with the dual tone(ZL1) exhuast. Even though they didnt have any of those,they did have several '13s in stock.They had just gotten in a couple of victory red ones that had just been cleaned up to be put on the lot. Now this is hard to explain but Ill try. It looked like there were little,tiny specks in the paint. Kind of like flake but not near that much. Just little tiny specks(no they werent any kind of detailing or cleaning overspray). They looked kinda silver or white(they kinda sparkled). Also, if you didnt look very close and if the sun had not been out so very bright(no clouds at all) you would probably have not been able to see them. I felt the hood and it was smooth to the touch(no I didnt have a freezer bag with me)It didnt look like a defect,it actually looked good!! I didnt think the paint was any different in'13.Sorry no pics, but all I had with me was my phone and I highly doubt id been able to capture it with that.Anyway, if someone can shed some light on this for me it would nice!!Thanks

The way you described it sounds like crystal red to me, victory red does not have metallic flake in it, as far as I know. Here's a picture I found

It's all good, we all have our moments. Sounds like a sweet red whatever it is. If you get a chance you should snap a picture.

Hopefully someone has a good idea of what it could be?

Thats just it. It said Victory Red on both invoices on both red camaros. I didnt see any kind of paint"add on" on there either.

I have a 2013 VR ZL1 vert that I got 2 weeks ago. This past weekend I spent about 4 hours detailing her with Zaino clay bar and a couple coats of Z-2. What the OP has described in nothing that I have seen on my car. Mine is just a smooth coat of super shiny red; no silver or white specks. I am pretty anal about things so I definitely would have noticed.

Could be. If thats rail dust,I like it.
One more thing. I dont mean to be a smart a$$ but for the love of all thats holy, I promise you it was not crystal red(not you Silver85IrocZ). It was VR. If it was crystal red I wouldnt have asked for help with what was. This is very,very very subtle. You could barely see it in bright sun. Thanks

I owned a 2011 VR 2LT/RS Camaro and now own a 2013 2LT/RS Crystal Red Metallic and what you explained is the Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat paint. I love the color personally.

I know this is probably not possible, but maybe the factory made a mistake on the color listing.

Frustrated, no doubt. Maybe you should go back to the dealer, take some photos and then press the salesperson about the color. You've got me curious now.......

Yes sir it is. But the frustating part is not that I dont know what was up with the paint. Its that some members will not stop saying that its crystal red!!! I know everybody is just trying to help me out and I thank you for that but I dont know how else to say it. IT WAS VICTORY RED!!!! I have a VR camaro and I also have seen many crystal red ones(the dealer that I was at probably had 7 or 8 of them)so please .....please..... stop saying it must have been crystal red. I have no doubt that someone else will post "Its crystal red" just to be a smart a$$ so Im just going to take it for its entertainment value. Thanks again. C5 moderators please just delete this thread,its just not getting anywhere.

what you're describing definitely has to be Crystal Red...



not the color. Crystal Red is a girl I know who used to go around and spray this very weird, fine, almost metallic dust onto cars at dealerships. it was kind of like her version of pulling tags off of mattresses. Oh, that Crystal Red. What a pistol! Yeah, what you're describing is undoubtedly Crystal Red.

So it has been determined, CRT it is. Glad we got that all cleared up.

No offense there, but you should be more clear and decisive on these kinds of things....
