First shots of Blue Velvet Metallic (2015 Camaro color)

2015 Traverse showed up recently with the new blue. Looks more like Imperial Blue than Blue Ray. Dark with a ton of metallic flake.

Why won't GM just give us a nice blue for the Camaro? I always wanted Jetstream off of the C6 vettes, or Laguna blue on the C7 would look great on a Camaro. They just keep offering bland blues that aren't popular.

We may have heard that a time or two on this site. Totally agree.

Those pics say it is Blue Ray Metallic version 2.0, same color with different name. With the pic of the sample color I thought it was going to be more close to Imperial Blue Metallic. We will have to see once more pics and cars actually start to roll out with this color.

It's much more IBM than BRM, at least to my eyes. Blue Ray was much too dark, I called it "not black" as in this Camaro is not black. Maybe the color doesn't translate well in pictures, but IMO Blue Velvet it's far lighter than BRM while still a darker blue.

Has that off blue Gray tint to it like BRM had at least in the pics. I look forward to seeing more pics and seeing the color in person.

Don't know why but in that pic in your Signature your car looks the best I've ever seen out of a BRM car. I've never seen a BRM car that was that bright Blue in color, even in direct sunlight.

I feel like with blue velvet in the name it should be a lot lighter and have some kind of pop to it. Nothing spectacular for anew color IMO.

Yeah BRM really pops in direct sunlight. I love it.

I like it but I can't readily see the difference between it and BRM. My guess would be that it has less shades of purple in it.

Why do they keep doing dark blues? We already have black & from a distance or in low light that is what dark blue looks like. Not a fan. A pretty blue would be nice.

Thanks for posting these !

While I think this will look great on a Camaro....I think a Laguna Blue (or something like it)...would have looked even better.

I'm with you Ruby... All dark colors. I had a Silver Blue (light blue) Corvette.
It would look so good on this Camaro and I bet it would sell.

I think it looks decent but I'm getting tired of all the metallic colors. Also I think they really need a blue that POPS.

I like it love Blues with a lot of flake in them. They really pop when they are polished up properly.

Thanks for the post!

I have Imperial Blue Metallic on my 2010 2SS and love it very much!
I've seen Blue Ray Metallic on the Camaros / Impalas and always thought of it as being way too "Grey" IMO
Blue Velvet looks interesting, however, I would have to see it in person to get an idea of how much I would like it and whether or not I would purchase it.
Given the fact that Blue Ray has only been out for appox 2 years, one must think it was not a great colour if GM is replacing it already.
