Yeah I love British Racing Green and Lime Rock does remind me of it and comes the closest I've seen

...agreed, I saw it on a Z/51 2014 Vette with carbon fiber package...and it was really, really hot looking. Took me back many decades...

Im with Fen Ill wait to see a concept or at least a design of it before I think of colors for cause some cars look better with different colors. But since its not here yet I will agree a pearl white and a metallic black and a dark green would be great options for color choice at a higher cost of course.

...what suits me best is going to the dealership every couple of weeks or so and seeing the colors in person. One can wrap their hands around the issue much better.

Put something out there very similar to the metallic Kinetic Blue on the Hot Wheels Camaro and they will get my attention.

....blue is not a historic seller, around 6 percent of the market share as I recall. They won't do it...but I loved that color myself personally.

I'd like Pearl white and lime rock green as well. But aren't they moving the production to a new plant? I'm thinking they will limit color selections similar to whatever other vehicles are produced there as they did back in 2009.

...agreed, that color rocks, and the kicker is the blue flame varying shade decal on the quarter panel that blends in with the paint scheme and is almost undetectible. They <GM, or an after market supplier> should offer those one off shade of body color flame QP decal packages for the aftermarket.

If they had the pearl white I have to admit I would have seriously thought about that one!!!

Navy Blue Metallic from the 4th gen would be nice to see again. Blue Ray Metallic is a decent blue but it could be better.

They do need to widen the colour choices and bring back some of the old favourties.
My suggestions would be

Red Hot red - but tri coat it with red primer and red clearcoat to deepen it a bit
Deep Red Metallic - shade the flakes light red or orange
Hugger Orange - the classic that should have never gone away
Bumblebee Yellow - to much of an icon now due to the movie
Synergy Green
Lime rock/British racing green Metallic
Marine Blue Metallic - the classic from Gen 1
Imperial Blue/Blue Ray Metallic - preferably Imperial just a nice deeper blue shade
Magenta/Purple - seems they have picked it for the 2015 so might as well keep it
Black - classic and always understated
New black Metallic - big flake to make it stand out, shade the flakes indigo or violet.
Deep Cyber gray/Silver
Gold - deep gold not a soft "olympic medal" gold
Summit White - i remember this one from a buick my dad drove when i was a kid.
Pearl White - The Cadillac version looks rich and deep so copy it over to the Camaro line

They need to offer some accent stripe packages as well

The Standard Rally stripe in White Black Gray Red and Blue
A Synergy Stripe in White Black and Red
The Hockey stick in all colours
The Horizontal Hood Stripe in White Black Red and Silver

Blue! I would like my next sports car to be blue... thinking something between Ford's Deep Impact Blue and Pontiac's Stryker Blue.

^ What Chain_Blue said with emphasis on metallic black, deep red metallic, and a revamp of Cyber Gray Metallic. I am biased with my current, but damn it looks good.
