Lovely looking car and best colour! But then I’m biased Smile

But I think you’ll find it’s Sapphire Blue Metallic not Aqua!


I know Sapphire and Aqua are very similar be interesting to know exactilly which it is Question I was under the impression that Sapphine was slightly lighter than Aqua, sort of somewhere between Cobalt and Aqua Dont know


True, I thought Aqua was a bit lighter with a bit more green tinge. Now I don’t know. Mines Sapphire.

It’s definitely Aqua. It does look slightly different in some lights but no doubt it is Aqua Blue.
