    I have been seaching for pics of cars this color, but it must be very rare. I know it was a mid to late 90's color at least and 355 and 456 cars were offered in this gunmetal gray color. Post'em if ya got em, thanks.

    Looks great with the cream interior. I saw one at WWOC. Apparently he got it to match the outfit he was wearing when he ordered it :)

    I guess it is very rare if there are no other pics and NO owners stepping up.

    That is the most stunning picture of a 360 Spyder I have ever seen.

    Gunmetal is a fantastic colour for some cars. It looks awesome on an Aston Martin Vanquish. The propoer James Bond spec.

    thanks for the pics, this really shows the car in enough different light to really see the different nuances of it. Very helpful.

    Great color.....a light dove grey or lipstick red leather interior would be perfect.

    I saw it and it was stunning. It's hard to describe. I would say it's a very "deep" color. I don't remember metallic-ness...

    That is the best looking 550 that I have seen. Is it just me or do the 550 and 360 look better in the darker colours: TdF Blue, Black, Pozzi Blue, Canne di Fucile, etc? Maybe it has to do with the bubbliness of the shapes?

    The darker colors hide and flatten the lines of the 360... so, people like me who love those lines, often prefer the lighter colors, since they emphasize the lines and vents and other features. People not so big on "bubbly" lines often prefer the darker colors that flatten those out.

    In contrast, I love the dark colors on the Enzo, as it tones down the very sharp lines that it features.

    JMHO.

    It seems closest to the color Mercedes calls "Obsidian Black". My E420 was that color (with light grey interior) -- it was stunning, and changed very slightly depending on the light conditions. The metallic nature made it more livable than a standard flat black. Seems to basically look like the lead/graphite in a #2 pencil.

    I think it is closer to Mercedes Tectite Grey. At any rate... a great color.

    The car certainly is. Seems like this is a much more popular option (relatively speaking, of course) in RoW than it is in the US, as the 456 is the only one that I've seen to date.

    I believe WCH's 575 is this color? Or maybe a different William?
