The paint color appears to be quite similar to the Silverstone Green used on the McLaren F1 GT prototype:

That's a stunning combination. I just don't like the looks of the very "hip" black rims on such a traditional color combination.

Agreed; light colors = dark wheels, dark colors = silver wheels. Hang on tho' the triple black look works too....obviuos conclusion is that they pretty much look great in any color!

Dark wheels on gray look pretty sweet as well...

Another Racing Green 12C was spotted having its windows tinted over the weekend in South Miami. This second car had a black interior. :cool:

Green/Tan in South Florida.... Almost bought it but the sellers were not reasonable. Two months later, they offered another buyer my price point. Go figure.
Love my Silver/Black and love its ease of resale (whenever that happens) even more.

I would have bought a BRG car. Pretty rare colo(u)r in the US but very British :)
You'd think that right? If I see BRG on the road these days it's more likely to be a Range Rover etc. Maybe it's a generational thing, more Hunter wellies and humidors as opposed to sports cars? I have to say I love that 12C though!

Looks awesome. And silver wheels would degrade it. It definitely seems now that the lighter the wheels the older the driver. At the extreme end are all of the Corvettes with chrome wheels driven by guys in their 70s.

It is consignment but I found it incredibly odd that they countered with an offer to a friend of mine which was lower than my offer two months earlier. It seemed they simply worked off the incoming offer without regard for market pricing or any sense of urgency to make a reasonable deal.
Again, I came out smelling like a rose. I prefer my Silver/Black which has more performance related items versus the Green car's emphasis on carbon pretty parts (not that there is anything wrong with that :).

In the south of France for a few days and spotted this fantastic 12c...



It sounded and looked great as it burbled through Beaulieu. 12c is gonna start rising in value sooner or later. Wonderful car.

Awesome!!! I’m trying to figure out if that’s the Monaco one.

I was told there are 1 of 6 in the world. I believe I found 5 from the internet:
1. New York City (Mine) Was posted on drivingemotions.com
2. Connecticut
3. Monaco/France
4. Toronto (Spider)
5. Japan

Where is 6?

***just found a 6th!
6. San Francisco! Same wheels as mine.

That’s 6 with one being a Spider. Is there a 6th coupe?
