Seeing the camaro colors in person

Well I have to say that some of these colors on the camaro are just awesome in person when they look just "OK" in a picture.

For the first time today in person I got to see a white, aqua blue mettalic, and the red jewel tintcoat.

In my opinion....

Aqua blue mettalic = Fantastic in person in the sunshine! Not nearly as "bright blue" looking as in pictures. I really liked the color far more than I thought I would and I really like blue on cars and trucks. Great color.

White = Very clean looking but too plain without stripes for me. This one was plain and while it looked very nice, I think some stripes are needed. I also thought it blended the bodylines together too much.

Red jewel tintcoat = holy S!!T thats a fantastic color!! I just kept staring at it and was amazed by how deep the color looked and how it highlighted the shape of the car. The car was a 2LS with the RS package and black interior. A fantastic color and I think its my new favorite.

Again, these are just my opinions, and I dont want to offend anybody who has a white one or anything. They are great looking cars no matter what!


Who else has seen the colors in person and thought how much better they are over pictures?

I thought the same about Victory Red. It looks completely different online than it does in person. I went from "meh" to "wow".

ABM loves the sun
Once you have seen ABM, RJT, and IOM... the rest just seem so bland!

I saw an ABM and a white one today; these are not my favorite colors. The red jewelcoat and IBM are absolutely amazing though. Although with painted on cyber gray stripes, my SIM is the best!!!

Pictures do no justice to RJT...

If you really want to know what it looks like you have to look at it in person..

I had never seen RJT(my color) in person untill I recived my car..

It looks amazing

RJT has a habit of doing that , as soon as I saw it in sunlight I was hooked, I drove 2hrs to see it in cloud cover and 1hr to see it in bright sun . In person I've seen RJT, IOM, VR, RY, CGM, SIM, ABM, and black (I've been to a lot of dealerships ) so all I'm missing is IBM (which I really want to see) and SW. Like said above and pretty much everywhere I haven't seen a bad color yet .

Just saw IBM in person the other day with SIM stripes...that is a hot combination....it was the last color I hadn't seen. I think any of the metalics look amazing....the IOM and IBM are particularly impressive in person.

How does the cyber gray look in person? I'm terribly undecided on what color I want... black is my fav color in general, but on the Camaro (and I suppose all cars to an extent) it seems to mask the beauty of the grillwork, and turns the car into a giant silhouette. So I thought the CGM would be a nice compromise for a dark look while still showing the details, but my fear with gray is that it will be too dull. To me, stripes would be a must, but I don't know if that would be enough. Peeps who have seen CGM in person, does it have as much "pop" to it as the other colors?

+1

I got to see every color at Carlisle, PA in June...the only color I haven't seen in person is white, but from everyone's photos of their white cars, it looks good too...I like it the best with the ABM stripes...

I am a bit biased towards my RJT , but believe me, I get as many, if not more, compliments about the COLOR of my car, as I do about the CAMARO!!!...

The cars definitely have to be seen IN PERSON to truly appreciate how awesome they look...pictures cannot possibly do justice to most Camaro colors...

GM got it right with ALL the Camaro colors, IMHO!!!...there is NO bad Camaro color...it's all about personal preference...

I've seen IOM, Black, Yellow, and RJT in person on the Camaro. All of them look fantastic. Personally I ordered IOM for mine that should get pulled for production in the next month or so. IOM is one of the colors that look completely different in person then any picture I've seen of it. I still haven't gotten to see it during daytime, but in the well lit service bay of a dealership it looked absolutely fantastic.

IMO all of the above colors looked fantastic. RJT looked great as well and again pictures just don't seem to do it justice.

I've seen CGM on a corvette, and while it looked really good (It was the color I wanted to order originally), it just wasn't the color for me.

Ive seen seven of the colors in person. I havn't seen ABM, IBM or white. Yellow has impressed me a lot. Silver looks real nice. CGM i was disappointed in. But the one i saw had the 18'' heritage wheels, and i hate those. Black looks great. I didn't love RJM, but i saw it at dusk. maybe it would look better in more sunlight. red looks good.

CGM is a pretty neat color, depending on lighting and what not it can give off a purple or greeninsh hue. The Chevy Trailblazer comes or came in a very similar color. I liked it and considered it but the more I looked at RJT the more I was converted.

Here's a terrible youtube video that I took with my cell, you can really see the purplish hue and it's not the phone doing that.

The car I ordered is a 2SS RS CGM w/ blk ralley stripes. I saw the same exact car in person and was blown away!!!! I Looks TOUGH!! I was going to get the SIM until I saw this. It will not stand out like the other bright colors, but if you want the "muscle" car look, THIS IS IT. Just my opinion. They are all georgous!

I agree. I saw it in person and I changed my mind. Victory red had not been my first choice. Once I saw it I totally changed my mind. I'm glad I got it in that color.

I can tell you after wanting RJT for my 5th Gen as soon as I saw IBM RJT was bumped down to 2nd place and my 2011 Convertible will be RJT, my 2010 2LT/RS will be IBM

CGM moved to 3rd place followed by ABM, BLK, SIM, RED, IOM, and White

i've seen every color but ABM in person and i like every color. I wanted to order ABM but i ended up getting one that wasnt spoken for so i wouldnt have to wait. I really like the orange, and yellow. I didnt think i'd like IBM but once i saw it in person I really liked it, same with RJT and VR. But like i said i like all the colors.

ABM is cool. There is a bit of teal in it, but in the sunlight it's great. RJT is also killer in the sunlight. Black, white, yellow, IBM and cgm are all nice to. IOM looks orange and then yellow then red then almost pink depending on the light.

You have to see them in person and in different weather to make the call on what you want. (If you are trying to decide on color that is....)
