Thumbs up RED JEWEL TINTCOAT Camaro w/ 1 Challenger and 2 G8 GT's. Pic inside.

How about I was driving to work yesterday and out of no where 5 Camaros, 1 Challenger, and 2 G8 GTs. I assuming GM was doing some type of testing, but they were not even near GM Proving Grounds....Enjoy!

Nice catch!!

So that's what the Camaro looks like in Red Jewel Tint Coat. Looks better in that color than the Malibu does.

Looks like the first in line was an LS/LT (RS?) and the second in line was an SS, based on the front bumper shapes and the mailslot.

Well the second one looks like the Rally Sport becuz it appears to have a RS in the grill...but I dont know about the others. The other three went through the amber light. One of them had camouflage over it. To be honest it shocked me so much I could only get one photo....lol.

The second car is an SS.

Nice to see that font end in a different color. Really looking good.

I am pretty sure I saw a new vette with RJT today -- and if I am correct, let me tell you, it looks like Cherry Red, but DARKER. I would imagine the "tintcoat" (metallic hues) make it change color in different lighting conditions.

It's one WAY cool color!!! I wish I could have turned around to follow it, but it was raining and overcast -- and even under these conditions --- the color "Popped!!"

The Corvette is available in Crystal Red Metallic Tintcoat, not Red Jewel. It is one of my favorite car colors and was hoping to see it on the Camaro also.

Was this the color you saw on the Corvette?

No way he can tell you what color he saw unless he knew the year of the Corvette. All the metallic reds (Mont. Red, Crystal Red, Magnetic Red, etc) on the Corvette are all too similar to see the difference from in pictures. They have to be next to each other.


But man! I never thought that color would look that great on a Camaro, but I just might have to think about this color as well. Just wait until you see that thing in the sun! Thanks for the pics!

If that is the red jewel tintcoat, it looks better in a picture than it does it person.

You sure the G8s were GTs and not pre-pros of the GXP ver? I'm not sure why they'd be test driving GTs, unless they're for next MY. Either way, nice find and nice quickness on the camera.
