Gotta say it isn't orange enough for my tastes. I doubt I'd ever buy an orange car, but if I did I'd want it to look actually orange instead of red until the sun hits it a certain way.

I haven't seen IMO on an actual car, but I can agree with the other posters saying that you need to see this color in person.

I have a Sunburst Orange II Metallic Avalanche and the color changes significantly depending on the lighting. I suspect IMO is more orange than it would appear in the pictures we have seen.

Yep, its the same thing. I have a hummer on the parking lot at my work I have seen everyday for the past week. It looks red with a slight tint of orange most of the time.

It does look alot like Victory red. Not one of the colors I'd choose unless it blew me away in person. So we have Candy apple red, traditional red, red orange but no blue or green? Or even White at launch?

First post edited with links to higher res images. To be honest, when I saw the car from a distance, I wasn't sure whether it was orange or red. Just one of those colors that plays around in the light, I guess.

That is EXACTLY what I'm saying. I don't know how or why this color was chosen over an orange color.

Sorry...but that is simply a gripe that I am able to have and don't mind sharing. I thought a long time about doing orange w/ black stripes...to really make it stand out in a crowd....until I saw the "orange" car I was thinking about getting was going to be RED.

It has the RS appearance package too...guess iwth half an interior there was no chance to hear the car run?
Unless I have missed something (which is very well possible) I believe that you are correct. Now we know what the red SS badging looks like as well as the midnight silver rims -- which I happen to like very much.

Yeah, the worse part is knowing we can't do anything about it.

Orange is a very iconic color for the Camaro so you need to give it what's right, what it deserves; not one you need to be around at certain times of the day to even confirm that it's orange. If I want orange, I want it to stay orange. This color could actually be more accurately called Inferno Red Metallic than Inferno Orange.

Hopefully they'll give it another more orangey shade than this within the model year or the next model year. My favorite color is orange, especially on a Camaro. But that's the catch, it's ORANGE, not red with a feint undertone of orange.

Oh man, I just noticed something else -- if this is a production model then I guess they changed the Brembo brake calipers to look like plain jane oversized calipers. That's a bummer because it's that kind of attention to details that turns me on.

Thanks for all the pics of the IOM.....I love it. It ought to look great with cyber grey (or black) painted on stripes and the orange accent interior with polished rims!

As someone else noted earlier...yes...there is a lot of orange peel in the paint. I'd bet that the production paint will not have that issue. I looked closely at a hemi orange challenger recently and was shocked at the high quality of the paint finish on that car! I did'nt think chrysler was capable of putting such a high quality finish on any of their products.

Lets hope GM has the same high standards. This will be one world class car if they do when combined with the striking styling and excellent handling characteristics that we have heard so much about.

I love the IOM color and will still buy mine in that color .... BUT .... I think they should have went with the Hugger Orange instead.

I took a closer look at the Hummer 3 and it did have an amount of this orange peel on the vertical surfaces. Why is this? I mean, is it normal to have this? I want this color , but am now considering switching to Red Jewel or Victory red instead if this is a common complaint from other members...

For what it's worth, I thought I'd make a (poor) comparison shot of IOM vs. Victory Red for those who are worried. Obviously this isn't the best comparison, but maybe it'll calm some fears.
