2013 hot wheels edition

Went to order a 2013 hot wheels edition and GM does not have the sun roof as a option. Really bummed, does anybody know why it is not offered on this car? I know you can order a 2013 2SS with the the sun roof, just not avaliable on the hot wheels edition. Any ideas why?

Really? As expensive as that package is and you can't even order it with a factory sunroof? Is that for real? If so, I gotta say I don't understand some of the ideas GM comes up with.

All will be forgiven if they should make kinetic blue available on all Camaro models in '14. Maybe.

Exactly....because Camaro buyers don't like blue, remember?

This car won't sell well because of its price but they will blame it on the color.

The stripe package goes from the hood across the roof to the spoiler, hence no sunroof as an option.

Thanks for the pic BeckyD@RodgersChevrolet

I love my sunroof. I'd never buy a car I couldn't open the roof on.

So they'd need to make a different stripe for the sunroof option... OMG, can't do it... not enough profit margin in the package to create a second vinyl stripe template for the car's roof. Amazing...

You can BET most customers that are willing to pay 6000+ for an appearance package are also going to want ALL the bells and whistles, a big one of those being a sunroof. So silly they are going to refuse that option because they don;t want to create a 2 piece roof stripe for the package. You're right though, when the cars don't sell well they'll blame it on the color. haha

Congrats! Now all you need is a replica Hot Wheels orange track you can lay in your garage or driveway!

I never used my moon roof on my truck, but anytime it's pretty outside I use it in my Camaro.

I don't see why they can't do the sunroof with the stripe. I got the stripe on Natasha and also got the sunroof. They just didn't put the stripe on the roof, which I also didn't understand. But that's beside the point.

You can stripe a ZL1 with a roof so I doubt the stripe is the problem. I would say it is what they probably got approved from Mattel as being the Hot Wheels model.

I have said this for some time why not a bright blue.
Aqua blue was the closest to my liking and dealers were 5-7k over msrp once there were only a handful left. people will pay for the extras if offered specially if the color catches there eye.

Exactly. Just don't put the damn stripe on the roof then. Why do they make it so difficult?

Come on Chevy...2014 1LE in Kinetic blue with an LS7 (Z/28?). And make the sunroof available...
