Hot Chocolate? Looks much like a dark bronze to me.

My favourite though is courtesy of Renault - they offer an interior colour they call "greige" - somewhere in between grey and beige (I'll let your imagination do the rest!)

Nope - it's unbelievably bland, neutral, boring, uninspiring and insipid.......
Actually, I must correct myself. Have just returned from a run to town, where I followed a Cooper S in this shocking colour - and now I realise that it is indeed worse than the Renault greige :eek:

The number plate (over here it's 2 letters then 4 numbers) was SH****, so I guess the lady driving it has a sense of humour!

I don't believe that my eyes decieve me just yet, but I think that Sparkly Silver is rather nice.

My dealer had a specced down One at its recent launch, finished in SS with a set of decent alloys, and I thought that it would make a great entry into the world of Mini ownership.

Incidentally, I attended the final factory tour before the re-tooling shutdown, and noted that of some 150-odd cars on the production line, the least popular colour was none other than Mellow Yellow with just a single example on the line.

The other new colours, Nightfire Red, Oxygen Blue and the aforementioned Sickly Silver, all had a liberal scattering throughout.

Just thought you might like to know.

Thanks for that, Harpo

My dealer here says his first Nightfire Red model will arrive in August, which I find quite a surprise

(Oops, wandering way off the thread - sorry!)

i quit elike it can see it work very well with a white roof and nice trim accents ... it can certainly have a rich but still fun urbaan look,

btw ... when are we scheduled to see official press photos of the Clubman? didn't we get them in July last year for the R56? ... so considering release schedule is about the same ... aren't we due soon?

I like the fact it doesn't have a colour in the title. We have liquid yellow, chilli red, pure silver etc. So it's brown and that has a certain stigma - surely ?!
Otherwise it could be history teacher brown.

i wonder if Hot Chocolate is a hint back to the 70's in line with the car's past

I can see that in an ad... you sexy thing! :D

But I wish MINI would go back to pretty colors, it's been downhill since silk green was dropped. :hmm9kf:
