I'm looking at a used 06 RR supercharged and the exterior is stornoway grey. This isn't listed as a color option for 06's as far as I can tell and a bit of a search doesn't show up any other 06 stornoways. Anyone out there have any insight on this? It's in the US by the way.

AFAIK, Bonatti Grey was used throughout MY06 (not only on RR, RRS and LR3 went through the same switch for MY07 - also Zambezi became Zermatt silver), so that car should be Bonatti, but if it was a real late 06 production, who knows... Kind of hard to tell from a picture since the two colors are so similar (Bonatti grey being a shade or two lighter than Stornoway, I think), if the dealer was willing to pop the hood open the color tag / code should be right there to verify.

there is very little betwen the two colours - separately you would be very hard pressed to tell the difference, park the two side by side and the easiest way I can tell is that the Stornoway has a very slightly purple tinge to it.

further to my two posts above, I wouldn't take that much notice of MY's - there is inevitable bleed over from one year to the rest. I have been round the LR factory in GB and believe me, they don't just fully change a spec of a vehicle for a new MY, the new MY features usually bleed in over a short period of time - hence some 06 vehicles may have some of the features of the 07 - even if its not listed as spec for your vehicle.

Not only is Bonatti the darker one, it has the more of a purple tint to it. More than i can even tell on the stornoway grey.
