Lightbulb ZL1 Camaro Pace Car Unveiled for Daytona Nationwide Race (New Blue Color and Wheels)


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE


Not sure if this is old news but while watching the video of the unveiling of the new Chevrolet SS at Daytona this past weekend I learned the ZL1 will be pacing the Nationwide race. Skip to the 17:36 mark in the video below.

(New BLUE color and new wheels) Camaro Pace Car for the Daytona Nationwide Race 2013

Thought y'all would love to see the terrific blue color AND the polished (chrome ?) 10 spoke wheels !

I think it's the same Pace car they did for the Grand Am race last year, but this time it has the shiny 10 spoke wheels that makes the color look even better

I thought it was a Cruze.

Isn't that the Kinetic Blue from the Hot Wheels edition?

I think we need to see it in person to fully appreciate it....the way the fenders flare out from the car I don't think can be seen good in the pictures.....I love that aggressive look about it.

I'm pretty sure it's a shade darker than the Kinetic Blue....Maybe that's how they will keep the Kinetic Blue just for the Hot Wheels car, but still give everyone the blue they've been wanting too

I noticed 2 threads were combined here and I'm not sure the title is accurate.

Do we know 100% this is Kinetic Blue ?

I read (from someone who knows) that this car from last year is not Kinetic Blue.



And this Pace Car looks to be the same color to me.



Versus the lighter outside pictures of Kinetic Blue.

I like the KB better just going on those pics. But the pace cars photos are not taken in full sun like the Hot Wheels photo. I would have prefered a touch lighter rather than darker than KB for my DD.
Still, glad we might get more blue choices! I want a 1LE or Z28 in some sort of medium blue.

I'm with you. I don't think I like the looks of it or the 2014 Impala. I WANT them to look good and maybe they will in person but so far, egh...

Yep, here it is on Belle Isle last year. Likely the same car repainted.

I would never get out of that car if I was the pace driver. I'd taunt the nationwide guys and make them chase me.

I find no redeeming qualities about that vehicle what so ever.

The polished wheels and blue shade are killer (I am partial to the lighter kinetic blue shade). I am hoping that chevy offers this as a regular option on the zl1. The SSX wheels are one of the outstanding features of the ZL1.

That looks awesome,love the blue on the ZL1,makes it look even meaner,as far as the "SS"i'm not quite sold on it yet,i kinda like it but at the same time think G.M. could have done better,i dont dislike it but at the same time,i was expecting more,the new truck looks killer in that color as well,

Yeah it looks hot,am i the only one that thinks why do they get all these hot FAST cars, and drive them so painfully SLOW,there on a frigen race track we, (I)want to see these things go fast,yes its a caution that these pace cars are for, but,but most all pace cars are capable of 180 to 200 mph,that i remember any way,and since the race cars are 180 to 200 mph lets run cautions at 150 mph maybe 160
