I'm guessing this is the same blue that made an appearance not long ago on the pace car that we thought was Aqua Blue, but turns out it wasn't. Just a very similar blue, without the Aqua....which is what most people would prefer.

I think this is the medium blue that would sell well. The Aqua blue didn't because it looked horrible online and some people just don't like the "greenish" tint on cloudy days. I fall a little into that category, but to this day I still get compliments on the color...its amazing and I would never get rid of the car because ABM makes it one of the more unique Camaros on the road. I've grown even more fond of the color since I bought it back in 2009 and I love it....in the sun its just spectacular. (sorry, I am a bit bias as well!)

But in a perfect world, if they had offered this metallic blue which looks like ABM does in the sun and still keeps more of a blue tint in the shade, versus Aqua Blue....I'd have gone with this.

I will admit that if this color is released it will likely make my car seem less unique which would suck lol.
I don't think your ABM Camaro would be any less unique if the KBM was offered on all new 2013 Camaros. Any real Camaro fanatic would know the history of this car and the ABM color rarity. Cheer up! Its time to celebrate! GM is bringing back an AWESOME COLOR CHOICE!!! YEEEEHAAAA! I just hope we can get the new blue on all Camaro models...

The car doesn't feature anything new, period. For 7k your paying for the KB limited color, Hot wheels logo and the infamous red pin stripe. They could have atleast had the 1LE rims on it, even that would have looked nicer.

I already said it once but the SEMA Hot Wheels car that was featured in the green color should have been the model to release.

I think the Disciples need some fresh new faces.

Despite all you nay sayers, I think the whole package is awesome. I like how that blue is only available on a limited production car. Although the Hot Wheels package and the Transformer packages aren't for me, they are very cool. In addition the Transformer packages sold well as will the Hot Wheels package. I don't think either packages are cheesy.

EDIT: If I had the money, I would buy it.

This Hot Wheels Kinetic Blue Metallic is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! I like it BUT GM needs to continue to offer this color of blue and have it debut the new Z28 when it is released with White graphics and stripes that would be an instant buy for me!!!

GM is mistaken if they think that this type of blue color wont sell because it will sell like hotcakes once people find out and if they make it available on all models across the board! I get people telling me they love the color on my aqua blue metallic all the time. Of course it wont sell as much if its only limited to an edition like this though.

The Camaro division at Chevrolet is providing us with the best Camaros ever built. I have owned several. I do agree that this bright blue will be a great color however I am bias because I loved the Glacier blue on the 1969 Camaro and the bright blue on the IROC and the Jet Stream Blue on the Corvette. I really do not want the hot wheels edition although I think it is very cool to see two companies come together and create special editions like that.

I would love to see that color offered in the full line as well. I want a ZL1 in that color. That is the color I have been waiting for. So Pleazzzze I need a Kinetic Blue ZL1.

I'd like to see GM put out a M.A.S.K Edition Camaro complete with helmet and functional weaponry.. Maybe even a gas station base I could park it in and come gull-wing flight mode option or something.

I'd call it Thunderhawk.

I think this will sell just fine, personally think it would sell ALOT more if the concept hood from the green version was on it

But either way, like the 2010 transformers edition with that gold color I love it but won't get an entire car dedicated to this

Yeah the hood and the rims were absolutely amazing from that version. Just that whole package was amazing. The rear diffuser as well.

GM, please stop with all these silly "Special editions". You're killing this car with each and every one of them.

How so?

Do you mean that you're not going to buy a Camaro because of the special editions?

Great news and thank you! Looking forward to seeing more photos. I will order if/when this color becomes available throughout the Camaro line.

That green would have been so much sexier. I should scrape together a few grand and have my car repainted over chrome. :P

The 21" wheel upgrade alone almost cost the amount of the package. But I agree not much to it for the huge increase in price. There is the two tone paint job, hopefully it's paint or is it just a vinyl stripe?
Plus it has the chin spoiler and side skirts. So all thats where the price comes in. but I would not want 21" wheels. Replacement tires are ridiculously priced.

That what I was saying earlier, guaranteed to make it a low selling color.

Actually I think it is helping sells. It's what people asked for. More options and special editions. You can't blame them for giving the people what they wanted. I think it's nice.
except for limiting a lighter blue

As they have said before people wanted more special editions. It's a good thing people it means they are doing well.
