I attended the Event in Freemont. From the Design Studio and the samples in the showroom I was set on the Grey. However when I saw the Grey in person, something odd seemed to occur. In the light it was Indescribably Gorgeous but in the shade of the "tent", where people were loaded into the car, all of the luster and shimmer seemed to disappear. Further more the car took on the appearance of glossy wet primer. I've been trying to wrap my head around this for weeks now. I looked at other similar colored cars on the road, stopped at dealerships and watched similar Grey car's color change during the transition from afternoon until dusk. Nothing quite seems to reproduce what appeared to be happening at the Freemont event. After looking closely at my pictures I'm wondering if the the Grey was being altered by reflecting the white concrete barriers and white ceiling of the "tent". Additionally, last night after closely reviewing my pictures again, I noticed that there were spot lights also shinning artificial light on the cars under the "tent". Lastly the Grey car had Dark Grey Rims, which in my opinion clashed with the Silver Trim and further dulled the appearance of the Grey color in the shade. I would love to hear what other people think and if there is another car by a different manufacturer that has a very similar Grey that I could take some time to look at.
Thanks for your help !
