Lexus launches new exterior color "Nori Green Pearl"

This is a very dark pearlish green paint. Under natural light, it looks black in the shadow and metallic green under sunlight. A manly color for luxury and sports cars. It reminds me of Mitsubishi Zero fighter used in WW2.

I remember when I was growing up there were some pretty nice shades of green. The whole anti-color trend in cars has become too much. Black, grey, silver, white, and all variations of those are kind of boring. I like a black car as much as anyone else but I don't think it's the only color I want to have until I croak.

I feel the same way. Metallic exteriors are hard, serious, masculine, and authoritative, but having a shade of color can add so much character to the car. Green is bold. Blue adds flavor but doesn't offend (pictured below, TTURBOV's Cadillac in Phantom Gray). Stock Evo X exteriors Graphite Gray and Mercury Gray have shades of blue, and Phantom Black has a shade of gold/brown, but they are just so understated that are "kind of boring" like you said.
