Oh, I was just randomly surfing the 'net, and randomly stumbled upon these pics, so randomly thought that I would randomly post these random pics here, I mean may as well since the thread exists anyway... Y'know, all purely random like... yes

Just trying to get ideas really. I'm wondering whether many of these cars are the same colour but the lighting makes them look very different. Gulf blue is quite simple to distinguish as it's a lot lighter, but there seem to be different shades of "Riviera" blue, and something called "Mexico" blue. I don't know if that's supposed to be the same colour but just happens to have a different name for some reason?

Seems to be the same idea Dont know

Different, and yes, Rivi and Mexico can look similar (especially under different conditions and different cameras).

Don't forget Maritime either Wink

Nice link! Seems there's consensus over the pond too that rivi can look very different dependent on lighting. That 993 Turbo looks lovely. I do like the gulf baby blue a lot too though. Not sure which shade of blue would suit my car best, if I was to do something about changing it from black... Question

I'm actually thinking the 'pure' look as plucked out originally by Mr. GT4 Smile

Although if I were to leave my wheels black then that would open the way for black "GT3" doors stickers & stripes Question

In the film she looks Minerva Blue Metallic (L408)

In real life, she looks Mexico (L336)
