Beautiful! Opulent Blue is what GM has been calling this particular blue paint code on the Cadillac since 2012.

Looks great to me except I would want a red or maybe grey interior. Black is just too hot.

No doubt about it.

When I heard Admiral Blue was coming back I was pretty excited to read they were bringing back that color. Only to see it isn't actually AB. One of my personal all time favorite car colors.

I'm not saying the new blue doesn't look good, it does. I might even still end up with it on my '17 Z06.

There is a million other names they could have come up with. I get the marketing angle but damn...

Are those wheels the Pearl Nickel painted or Machine faced aluminum?

In the brochure I am looking at the Pearl Nickels look darker.

Whatever they are, they look great on your car.

I hope to be ordering very soon. Just got my GM Family Discount number from my wife's uncle.
