Not really into orange or Camaros, but seeing that combination makes me want one!

Thanks for all the comments, thoughts, suggestions, etc. Car colors are always a very personal thing. This car is going to check a lot of boxes for me, so I care a bit more about color than I normally do.

I agree that the image in the OP is less than ideal, but for some reason, Chevy doesn't seem to have real world photos (or true photorealistic renderings) presenting the cars in a consistent manner. I am sure that color chips exits, but they're not easy to find.

I think they're basically close enough as a comparison and can't really do much better short of seeing them all in person at the same time and under various lighting conditions.

I'm not quite sure what I'm going to do, yet.

I think it's a cool car and basically any color will work. Good luck!

Lime rock addition. I was actually passed by one of those not to long ago. I cant believe the premium for a color and exhaust.

I didn't know that was offered as some special edition. Don't want to derail this thread anymore, but I have seen it chosen through Individual on other models including the F80.

I saw an E46 M3 with an aftermarket vented hood painted in that color the last time I was at the dealership
