Can't agree this time, Phil. Gray-violet (traditionally known as Amythist) is not only my personal favorite auto color, but, IMO, looks good on ANY car. Several automakers have offered it, but, sadly, have not kept it.....the long-running, industry-wide craze for white, silver/gray, and black has out-trumped it.
Rolls-Royce, though, being a very low-volume automaker (and charging the very high prices it does) allows cars to be custom-ordered in any color. Apparantly, (maybe) Bentley does, too.
Subaru offered a (true) gray-violet Amythist color on the early-mid-90's Impreza, and then dropped it. So did Cadillac, on the early-90s DeVille....but with a slightly more grayish-tint. From what I understand, Subaru still offers that color in some non-U.S.markets. (I would have chosen it for my Outback if it was still offered)
Lexus once offered, on the SC, what it CALLED Amythist (I know you remember that one, Andrew)...but instead of being a true Amythist grey-violet, it was, instead, a very deep, dark purple. The color on the thread-topic Bentley is more of a true Amythist.
a unique paint color that suits this bentley well. when i think of phantom, i think of a rich dark purple or a seductive black. the only thing i would change is the color name- grey violet. i was hoping for something more exotic in a fanciful name, especially for bentley.
