The new color is an existing Chevy color called “Ice Blue Metallic” and can be seen on the 2011 Cruze. We think the color reminds us of the 1982 color called Silver Blue Metallic or the Light Blue Metallic offered in 1984-85.

Last week’s Top Marques car show in Monaco saw the introduction of the Soleil Anadi, a coachbuilt Corvette designed and built through a partnership with Ugur Sahin and Spada Concepts.

[PICS] 1976 Corvettes Customized on SPEED's Car Warriors

Last night on SPEED’s Car Warriors, the Challengers (red team) took on the All Stars (blue team) in the customizing build-off of two 1976 Corvettes and walked away with the win (as well as both cars). The All Stars vision for their Corvette was much more over the top then the Challengers, but it was the road test that probably sealed the win as the All Stars car was deemed “unsafe” to drive by all three judges. Our friends at SPEED sent us some additional photography of the cars taken during filming of the show and we’ll share them with you after the jump.
