That looks more like Victory Red with bad lighting and a bad camera. Inferno Orange Metallic should look more metallic and more orange.

It's Inferno Orange and not Victory Red, however I do agree it is somewhat hard to tell initially glancing at the first picture. Click on the link to Camaro 5, there's some better pictures of the color, including a close up of the Camaro logo and you can clearly tell its orange with ALOT of metallic.

The photo posted here is a bad photo, looks reddish. But the others are cleary Orange. Why do photos like these always show up on that Camaro5 site?

a search on the owner of the camaro5 domain name turned up a Chevy dealership. that might answer why pictures that are offered up for sale (like priddys) end up there.

cant say what happened for these. obviously they were taken inside Oshawa. I know Chris and Jason would never accept an embargoed image if it were offered to them... they've turned down the opportunity before when approached.

That's funny you said that. We were talking about the very same thing at Indy Bash.

I stand corrected.

The metallic in Inferno is so fine even in certain lighting in person it doesnt look metallic . But it just radiates in the sun and looked super badass on all the solstices Ive seen it on .

Not for me... with something being that close, why not choose the heritage Hugger Orange?

You must have missed the threads where a couple members from there came here defending Camaro5 as "just another enthusiast site," run by "just another enthusiast."

It turns out that was an outright lie, and I don't like it when people lie to me. So, now that I know it was a lie, I'm calling them out on it in public.

Having said that, yes, I like seeing the pictures that they pay for, as long as I don't personally contribute to the funds.

I was one of those people, and everyone i have personally met (mods and members) are enthusiasts NOT dealers. As to who owns it.. could care less, they dont make me pay for anything or shop anywhere. The community is those who contribute, not who pays for the server/bandwidth. PM me if you want any further info or if you want to bash more, but leave it out of the threads, and off this board.

BACK ON TOPIC

Have yet to see an official color that doesn't look good on this car. That said orange or yellow just arn't my color.
