The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Spring Special Edition Renamed the Green Flash

One of the featured vehicles at the ongoing SEMA Show is the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Spring Special Edition, which is officially renamed the Green Flash Edition after GM ran a contest to name the new metallic green special edition package.

Back on October 2nd (National Name Your Car Day), General Motors announced a new contest to name the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Spring Special Edition. The automaker wanted a name for this special edition package that is a little spicier so rather than leaving it up to the stuffed shirts in the RenCen, GM turned to the enthusiast community to find a more exciting name for the Spring Special Edition.

After a month of accepting entries on the Chevrolet Camaro Facebook page, the powers that be at GM picked their favorite name from the thousands of entries submitted and the winner is the Green Flash Edition. That name was offered up by Chevy fan Jason M. and while he got (part of) his name on the official Chevrolet Camaro FB page, there is no indication as to what else Jason might get for picking the name. Of course, any Camaro owner would relish the fact that his or her idea was chosen for the official name, but the initial announcement in October 2nd suggested that the “winner” might get something for his or her help.

The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro Green Flash Edition
The key feature of the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS Green Flash Edition is the Emerald Green Metallic exterior paint with a matching green hood vent and silver stripes on both the hood and trunk. Next, the Green Flash Edition wears a Chevrolet Accessories body kit package that adds sportier new features to all sides of the car along with a set of big, bright polished 20 inch wheels. Details are limited, but we know that the Green Flash Edition sports a blacked out interior with leather bits throughout along with all of the standard features of the 2SS package.

No pricing has been announced, but I would suspect that the 2015 Chevrolet Camaro SS Green Flash Edition would be fairly inexpensive, as the package is basically a unique paint scheme, a body kit and a wheel package applied to a standard Camaro 2SS. In any case, this is one gorgeous green Camaro and I expect that the Green Flash will do a fine job of celebrating the final year of the 5th gen Camaro.

I am the Jason M. that picked the name Green Flash. My last name is McCarty and I live in Blaine, MN.
I have owned a 68 RS, 69 SS Vert, 95 Firebird Vert, and 2 2012 1SS Verts. It's in my blood.

Thank you. I took my love for the Camaro, Jimmy Buffett, and ocean sunsets and combined it into the name Green Flash. I think it fits perfect also. Now to convince the wife I need to have the car that I named in the garage next spring... Know anyone that wants to buy a Crystal Red 2012 1SS Vert? 1 of 370 1SS verts and probably a 1 of 4 ever made.

Jason, I am buying the Green Flash and have signed the paperwork. It is being shipped this week or next week. I bought it on the internet! I have a brand new Black Camaro 2SS Automatic, but when I saw the Green Flash, I thought it did not exist! I can't wait to see it in person! Thanks for naming it the Green Flash as that is my favorite color and I will feel special driving it! I am Active Duty Military and the Green Flash is my dream Car. Go America and Army Strong. Thanks Chevrolet for taking care of us Vets and Active Duty with V8's and Horsepower. You Rock Chevy!!! American Proud!!! Thank-You Jason from MAJ Gomez, Matt
