I do wish they made the hood. It's interesting that their is no pics of the rear end, the small hot wheels is a new casting compared to the '10ss and ZL1, and it has euro taillights and quad exhaust.

OK, where did you get it????

I agree with a lot of you...

I want that blue!
Not so much the Hotwheels edition... (though I am about to look for the actual Hotwheels on Ebay). I love the green Hotwheels Concept but I can see why that isn't do-able.

If GM had offered this blue from the get-go I would have been driving a Kinetic Blue Camaro in 2009. Rather, I saw ABM and said to my wife "Ehh... it's an okay color but it's too green-ish".
Then ABM doesn't sell well... *largely for that reason*... so they kill it and say no one wants blue.
...Now they come out with the blue people wanted all along, and don't give people a chance to buy it without a $7000 special edition package.

Sometimes GM makes me want to pull my hair out.

For the record, I am currently in the process of vinyl wrapping my car almost this exact blue. (3M 1080 series, color G227)

Cobalt blue is a nice blue. From your photos it looks lighter than cobalt, it look very close to ABM or this blue even... That is all I am saying.

LOVE the blue, but can't do the special edition. I'm 42, and just can't pull off a Hot Wheels car.

IF I were to get another Camaro of this gen, and I could have it my way, it would be a 1LE in this blue, it's instantly at the top of my list.

Yeah, it is a neat special edition for those who like that, I'm thrilled for them. I do absolutely love the blue color though. If it is available in 2014 on a 1SS+1LE+NPP exhaust, I'll be in line at my dealer to trade up for sure. Love the color, but my next Camaro would have to be a 1SS 1LE, not a regular 2SS with special edition package.

I'm glad they are bringing this to market, and hope to see the color available across the line in the coming year or two.

If the RS package is included in the $7K, that doesn't really seem that bad, does it?

Thats the button to turn the lighting on/off and to switch between colors.

It's easy to say things. But it's not easy to follow-through.

Are the 1LE wheels "new"?

And careful with bringing the disciples into this. I don't think you fully understand their role. (At least, not based on what you said) They provide general "visionary" feedback to the Camaro team from the enthusiasts. They do not dictate or influence small decisions regarding the Camaro. I think they're doing a fine job...their input has helped produce a generation of Camaro that consistently outsells its competitors and has reignited the Camaro enthusiast community like never before.


As someone said earlier...they may not be as appealing as, say...a 1LE...but these special editions keep the Camaro on the map. They're a relatively inexpensive method to keep generating new news and discussions surrounding the Camaro. That...no matter what the models look like...is a GOOD thing.


EDIT: If there's any real doubt in a person's mind about the seriousness of Camaros performance....the issue is them, not the car.
I can understand the hood not being produced the same exact way, but i'm sure you'd be saying the same exact thing if you saw the ZL1 hood on a "Concept" model. I'm sure GM could have made some sort of variation from it.

As far as the radical paint job you mentioned? KB would do just fine, its an amazing color.

Explain to me how the wheels are not produceable? The wheels on the KB Hot Wheel version are simply old and outdated. There isn't anything new about them, they should have went with the 1LE rims if anything and possibly put the red pinstripe around that or some sort of different variation.

As far as the Disciples go I think your wrong in the aspect of they don't influence or dictate small decisions regarding the Camaro. I could be wrong, but they do influence it from the information I've read on this forum.
