I'll second that emotion.


Hyundai designed a pretty awesome looking coupe, and then proceeded to saddle it with boring, drab, generic colors.

I settled for Shoreline, as all the choices SUCK.

Yellow was pretty awesome.
Lime Rock was fabulous.
Pearl White would've gone a long ways.
The Copper in our banner is pretty cool.
Black Cherry would be cool.
Purple like the previous year's Challenger.
Jet Black, w/o the metallic, would work well.

The Tsukuba Red is still available in some trims, and it's cool. But I especially agree that a really good metallic candy apple or black cherry red would be fabulous.

I'd of been happy with a burnt orange like some of the Mitsubishi out there. The new brz looks sick in that color.

just went through the US site and Canadian site, noticed a few interesting things.

First, Shoreline blue doesn't seem to be available on any canadian model. That's ridiculous, I think that was the nicest color choice for the 13.
Second, is the Copper only available on a/t cars? The only models I see it for a premiums, and why no m/t for the premium. Isn't that the only way to get heated leather and a sunroof? I prefer last years color and model lineups. This year we can't get anything but a fully loaded GT v6, which costs like $37k, apposed to last year a base was $32k

Brutal

BadAz - so what is you personal opinion seeing it "up-close" ?

Your pictures actually make it look somewhat better than the low light/overcast photos.

I would've rocked that, if they had the foresight to offer that color on 3.8 Track

That is better than all the other pictures we have seen. Now I just need to see it in the bright sun and see how it looks then. To be honest not my cup of tea but not as bad as the first pictures made it look.

It looks similar to the Veloster Vitamin C colour. That colour looks kinda blah under low light conditions, but fantatic in the sun. Maybe this one will look nicer under natural light.

i feel this colour would work perfectly well on the sedan, but not the coupe. it's the kind of colour i'd expect for a "heavy" luxury car, not a sports car.

So..............you expect to spend 2-3k for a color of your liking because Hyundai couldn't put "exciting" or non-drab colors on the new GC, like they've done in the past.
Color problem solved, but wallet problem created. Definitely win-lose.

This color only comes in the 2.0t premium and the 3.8 Grand Touring here in the U.S. which are both automatics, it sucks you can't get this color in a manual transmission, it's actually a really good looking color imo.

I wasn't sure at first, but after seeing BadAssLilCoupe's pictures, I can say that I really like this color. Why limit certain colors to certain models, specifically automatics?

It's stupid. Hell, in Canada we don't even get all the colors you do in the states
