I like the color, but not on the Bentley.

It's a fun vibrant color, but it cheapens it...

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.

Interesting. I'd like to see some pics in better lighting though.

This picture may not be perfect, but it seems to show the color pretty well.

How ??
I like the paint and it's not like orange, yellow or pink ... I think it looks appropiate for a two door sports coupe, but maybe not for all cars ......

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.

I feel that it's too brash and garish. There is massive expanses of purple. Perhaps I just want a hint of purple, rather than all-out purple. That's all...

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.

I like it too. Purple is a very elite color in Japan, wonder if it will end up there (one of the reasons Lexus offers that rare black/purple color).

I agree and I like it too. Purple is a color of royalty.

Not dark enough for my tastes. My car under florescent lighting is a deep shade of purple. I'd also rock whatever shade Minh has on his powdercoated wheels. Thats also a nice shade of purple

Way too "Barney" for me, sorry folks.

And I love the Continental GT...even if Paris Hilton drives one.
