    The color of the Jag I saw as mentioned was a darkish green. I should clarify, it didn't look like British racing green to me, it was more of a grayish green (on an overcast day).

    I just checked on the website, I think what I saw was Giola Green which is flipping amazing looking in person. I can't get it out of my head.

    Further reading (at least from one reviewer) suggests that the manual is the wrong option for this car, I love manuals, but I might... might be willing to accept an auto for this one. I can't believe I just said that (sorry, Raza) but as long as I have at least one car with a manual trans (Lotus), I'd be OK making that concession. I think.

    Not that I can do it right now anyway (unless I sold the Lotus). Just dreaming.


    Edit: checking goolge for this color, there seems to be some variability, maybe due to light, but this represents the color I saw on that overcast day pretty closely, but the car had the dark tans seats, which was a great looking combo.

    Ah, here we go, though in this photo, the green seems a bit more blueish, but that could be due to different lighting:

    I dig a brightly coloured car. Too many greys and whites and blacks.

    I don’t think bright colors become Astons—they’re far more dignified than proper super cars. Orange is more of a Lamborghini or Mclaren color to me. But a DBS Volante 6 speed is certainly one of my dream cars.

    I do like it in red, though:


    It’s definitely on the list of my lottery cars. Perfect for road trips.
