It's a new Sport 190 and considering that Gunmetal is discontinued, it must be Graphite that they're calling Gunmetal unless it's not really "new".

That must be the electric green that is/was available in Europe/Australia. Now that is one ugly green - I wish there was some better photos of the krypton - that one on the other forum looks really washed out - almost like the old lightning yellow.

I think this is REALLY a Graphite 111R-

SELOC'ers say the Sport 190 above is Gunmetal

Not so sure about that JD (again). Look at the second page of the review...doesn't the car look too light to be graphite? Also see brown undertones in the third page. I think it's ST.

I replied to this on Seloc - Its definitely Graphite.

I do live pretty close to the delearship, and yes it is a absolute nightmare! have pressed my face against the window quite a few times now, but only bought 2 cars from there so far. They do have a new Exige though.....Eeeek.

yeah, i'm not sure about the color either. It's dark in some pics and way too light to be graphite in the others. i'm confused...
