Official DEEP MAGENTA METALLIC (DMM) Camaro Thread!

Well, I thought I'd start one since I couldn't find one for our colors. I doubt it'll be a large thread, seeing as the color is limited and, judging by a lot of posts on here, not too popular, but ah well.

Show some purple love!

Here's mine, from the day I picked her up at the dealership until today, fresh from Big Worms Graphics and Spunky Joe's Tint Shop!

Nice car tattoo.

The color looks good especially after seeing the shots of your car.
Picture 2 doesn't even look like a purple. Anyway. Enjoy the ride and good luck with it.

?

So my gal and I were out having coffee, I told her about this car at one of the dealers. We went to the dealer to see it and she said "I like it" So we started talking to a sales person and guess what--------we have it and she loves it.

So the first pic was at the stealership, they did the stripes (local shop) and really killed the car. She and I talked and the stripes would have to go!
The second pic was after we got it home and we had her wheels put on (we took them off the old camaro- 2013 ls). The stripes were taken off by the same people that put them on. She loves it!!!!
we may look into some stripes, we saw one that had ashen grey "SS style" on one that looked really good. But she also likes plain------- so we are up in the air on that.

Adam Barry, Senior Creative Manager of the Camaro made mention that he originally designed the Deep Magenta Metallic to be meant for as a color for the 1LE but GM denied it and made the color for all variations other than the 1LE. He carries with him a design sketch of the 1LE in Deep Magenta Metallic with him the shows that he attends waiting to find a DMM with the 1LE trim and upgrades so he can give that limited concept sketch to the owner. I try to follow as much as I can on all of his Camaro work since 2011 and had never seen that design for the 1LE until Camaro5Fest in Houston and he showed it to me and gosh I wish it had been available as a 1LE option.

So just for those out there that are looking into customizing their DMM but don't know what to do, aim for the 1LE ground effects, black spoiler, black 10 spoke 1LE/ZL1 wheels and add the 2010 Indianapolis Pace Car rally stripes in matte black and you will have the original 1LE design concept that Adam Barry pushed to produce.

Nice!
If it had been available, I definitely would have went with the 1LE on mine. Sadly I had to choose one or the other, so I decided to go with the Magenta and a little lower payments. I am looking to add the 1LE suspension package however. Not sure about the other stuff yet.
Definitely plan to get rid of all the chrome and go with matte black!

Nice looking car! That's the first V8 in magenta I've seen.

It would look awesome with a set of black 10 spoke wheels to match your stripe package.

The Magenta is similar to Synergy Green as it's so difficult to capture the color from what you see with your naked eye to photo. Here's one that I took and tried to adjust from I could remember what it looked like with my at over at Camaro5Fest in Houston this past year.



It's a sharp color and I would've loved to nab that color if it was available in either a 1LE or ZL1 package with all the matte black trimmings and such. Reminiscent to the old impact colors of the early to mid 1970 MOPAR heydays.

So there are only TWO members on this whole site with Magenta Camaros? I'm very curious what the final production numbers for this color were... I bet they're very low.

I don't know WHO at Casey decides to stripe or accent their vehicles, but they have a way of just KILLING an otherwise good looking car. Seen it several times over the years. They had a C6 corvette for a while a few years ago that some idiot decided to stripe with bright as yellow stripes. ON A RED CORVETTE!

New upgrades, sorta! Pastli-dipped all the emblems, the rims, and the chrome front piece. I think it makes a helluva difference.

Good, bad? Personally I love it now. Need to work on performance upgrades next!

You did a great job with the plasti dip!!! I think it's just the color of the car that you aren't getting more feedback. Like I told you before, not everyone likes my car either. lol

Did you get anywhere with the splitter?

Thanks! No, nowhere with the splitter yet. I started looking into the parts but now work has taken off. Long days and odd hours, probably for the next couple months, so it's gonna sit in the shop for awhile I imagine. I'll get it though!

I like that colour actually. When I was building mine on the GM website, that is the colour I picked. None were around to be had off a lot though...

Plus - you have the exact stripe package I want on mine.

TattooLost you've got a awesome looking car

On a side not I didn't realize this was a new factory color. I saw one parked at the local outlet mall and it caught my eye... but I thought someone had there's custom painted and didn't think to get a closer look.

This color would look really good with the top half above the fender line Plasti-Dipped Matte Black. Does anyone with this color have some pictures taken right before sunset or on a cloudy day? I think it would show the color much better in a photograph.
