    Hey all,

    Does anybody know what colour this car is? or have any other pics of this colour? in this light it reminds me of the R32 blue/purple. Im thinking of getting my car wrapped in a similar colour to this or maybe the R32 one if I can match it...

    I reckon thats just the standard s3 colour Sprint blue, obv taken against a sunset so it reflects in the paint making it look pearlescent. It's just a dam good photo making a great colour look better.
