Maybe for a day ....

Then the novelty would wear off, for me.

Saw this a couple of weeks ago, one would have to be brave to opt for this colour

Agree with Vic. Interesting color, but couldn't handle it for very long on a car that large.

Nice color, a bit more fitting for a smaller car though I think.

Looking forward to getting my Twilight Purple G80 but not sure it works well with the M8GC.

The lighting this is in also isn't the best to show off the color. It really pops out in the sunlight.

I saw one of these at my local dealer last week. Looked lovely but not sure it's a colour I could live with. They called it Purple Silk (not sure if this is a different shade though)...

Never understood the allure of purple cars. To each their own I know but these things a invariably hideous in my opinion. Then again, all my cars have been either white or black.

Especially on the GC, it's' just a lot of car/purple

It would probably look good at night under LED street lights. A little underwhelming in the daylight pics

Agreed. Little too much purple for me. Nice car otherwise.

A nice quality vinyl wrap will fix this.
