Black steering wheel and black soft top would transform that car.....my mate has just spent £15K on a Ford Focus!

I like it as well , love the fact its different, even more love the fact its not bloody black or silver with a black interior . but you would need to be happy to get attention driving it . Grin Grin I often wonder about the original owner of a car when they are an unusual colour like this , sure they werent a shy retiring wallflower type Floor

Reminds me of the mk1 Audi TT my lecturer at uni bought new, green with green leather and green roof... his name was Mr Green.

I like the mint but couldn't live with the interior of Nephrite.

In itself, Mint isn't horrible. However when paired with a Nephrite interior the whole thing just becomes too nasty to behold for me. Nephrite challenges everything bad that anyone ever said about Savannah - green interiors really are the benchmark for wrong to my eye. nooo

The only car that Green suited is a 964........at a push.

Anyway, who'd have a green car - nothing but trouble and bad luck.

I like outrageous colour combos as much as the next guy, but that’s a bit too much for me.

Glad cars like these exist though.

This was advertised at a dealership a few weeks ago, I like it but thought it was overpriced (it was more than it made at auction.
Very 90's Cool

It's great that exists, but I could not live with The double green. With black leather that would look fine...
