Hideous.

I suppose you could wrap it, then only you would know you're driving round in a spearmint lozenge.

It's a GT3 and different colours are more acceptable than on a vanilla 911. I think that I like it but wouldn't have ordered the yellow seatbelts!
Can't find a photo at the moment but weren't the Vaillant 911's that raced in a while back, painted a similar colour?

As per above comments....On any other 911 variant nooo but GT3's can pull off brighter\bolder colours.
Wouldn't choose this colour by any means but if the price reflected. Question

Overall I like it but it needs 2 things:

1. wheel colour change....crying out for a solid colour either black or white

2. Some graphic treatment either SC/RS/4.0 styley.

..Agreed, graphics break up the colour and would work bigtime. Thumb

And would it be wrong if maybe the roof (or bonnet/spoiler) had a faux carbon wrap?

Amazing that Mint looks just perfect on the SC. Put silver wheels on that and it kills it.....as below on my customers car.

Nice spec but top top money for that car, looks like they are adding a big premium for the colour.

Would look a lot better on Black wheels.

I like it though.

Isn't that the same colour as the 964 "Peppermint Pig" in the 911&PW magazine? It doesn't go for a normal 911, but as others say a RS or GT3 can get away with it IMO

Mmmmmmmm not sure, wonder what it's like in the flesh. I have to say I completely agree with Chris about the wheel colours. That mint would be set of much better with a black or something else strong.

Not sure (if I had it) I would spend £90k of my own actual money on that rather than a gen1RS in Viper or Blood, or simply a gen 2 in white.

I think the 993 has the curves to carry that colour off. The 997 looks awkward in that colour.
