If you haven’t yet put your order in for a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, you may want to hold off until the second quarter of 2017.
Chevrolet has confirmed Krypton Green will become a production exterior hue for the 2017 Camaro ZL1. As for when it will actually enter production, the second quarter of the year begins on April 1 and ends on June 30.
We first saw Krypton Green worn by the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 1LE at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show. At the time, Chevrolet was toying with the possibility of putting the color into production. The hue itself was inspired by the Camaro Krypton concept, shown at the 2015 SEMA Show.
The color received plenty of positive reactions and we think it’s an excellent follow-up to the fifth-generation Camaro’s Synergy Green hue.
Chevrolet told us Krypton Green will be a $395 surcharge for any customer looking for quite a unique exterior color.
It’s worth noting Krypton Green looks awfully similar to Holden’s pre-production “Spitfire” exterior hue. Spitfire is also rumored to join either the 2017 VF Commodore Series II’s palette or the final run of Gen-F2 HSV cars.
