It was in the other AIMS thread about the LPG and stuff. It looks like a metallic olive drab. I thought they'd killed that colour with the VZ but apprently not. Mind you, I haven't seen one in the flesh yet.

Ah, so the un-drab olive is back. Wasn't such a bad colour in the end, once you got used to it. Still looked it's best in the dark though.

EDIT: It was called Martini Mica wasn't it? I think that's the right name for the colour (as opposed to the name of a different colour), and it's just a little cconfusing as that particular colour did seem to vary quite a bit depending on the sun. It could be anything from a metallic take on US Army Jeep Drab Olive to a Khaki made fmaous by the Indian Ghurkas.

Saw one in the flesh(i think) the other day at motorama on a statesman. Looked like a dark metallic bronze brown colour. i wouldn't won't one but it's not tragic. The colour is different to any one that was on the VZ/VY editions

That's a Camry colour! Looks a bit like some of the various similarly hued options that have already existed, i.e. Champagne Mica. After reading cedarman's description I was hoping it was a fair bit deeper..

..ala Kingswood.

Now that would have been cool. There was one in a car yard when I was a kid. It had red interior to go with the olive metallic paint. I wanted her so bad. :yup:

Anyone seen a red HQ interior? It's the only one I've every seen.:confused:

Yes a friend had one - it was - different. Too much red I thought.

I was looking for a pic and found this for sale. If only I had a spare $25K - this is AWESOME.

How about the Challenge Alloys? I've never seen them in real life though. Does anyone actually order them?
