Can you tell us if this blue will be restricted to this special edition or if there's a chance of seeing a kinetic blue 1LE one day?

NICE!

I like the word "limited" when it comes to factory production, keeps the vehicle from becoming cheesy.

Ok well.....that's absolutely wonderful. We loyal Camaro fans appreciate you guys listening to us. But can you confirm that this blue can only be ordered with the hot wheels package?

I would say that the VAST majority of fans would prefer to order a car that is kinetic blue metallic WITHOUT the silly hot wheels package.

Mixed emotions on this. I seriously thought once I opened this thread it was going to be the green "Hot Wheels" edition Camaro that was featured or something close to it. Oh well...

GM should have put all the parts on this and put it on the KB Camaro and they would have had a HIT and my order.

That blue pace car was my first thought when I saw this Hot Wheels car !

Those wheels make the blue look a little different to me, but I bet it's just the wheels....I'm not really a fan of black wheels.

LOVE the blue though !

If you could get it on a SS....I would seriously consider getting a new one (and I've only had mine 6 months) !

It kind of looks like Fbodfather is saying we can get it on other models for a limited time. Still waiting for clarification before I start jumping for joy.

Excellent choice! I hope you're able to get that cause I want the 2SS/RS version of that myself.

The Kinetic Blue is exclusive to the Hot Wheels Edition, which is only available to the 2LT and 2SS models...coupe or vert.

SO SICK! I sure hope they change their minds on making "Kinetic Blue" exclusive to the Hot Wheels package. I would LOVE that color without the hot wheels logo or flames. Oh yeah, and BRING BACK SYNERGY GREEN!

One way to kill the return of a lighter blue, is to offer it for a limited time on a specific package, you are sure to get very few orders to justify cutting it yet again. Why not make the color available on all models and see how well it will really do. Or just keep it as a special order color, not to be confused with a limited edition package color.

Guys, if you don't like the hot wheels edition but like the blue color you can have your Camaro painted kinetic blue for less than half the cost.

Maybe at Maaco.

It would be cheaper to de-badge it, place a SS emblem on the grille instead of the HOTWHEELS logo. and remove the ghosted flame, it's probably vinyl anyway. And replace the seat cover. for a LOT less than ~$7,000

To get a complete repaint....door jams, under hood & trunk....not only wouldn't be cheap....it would take away from the value of the car if you ever wanted to sell or trade it.

Not to mention taking out the entire interior...if you wanted to really do it right.

Still hoping for a true blue(or this blue) from GM on a SS
