Rare Colors of S2000

Do you own a rare S2000 color? Why not post up a picture so we can all see actual examples of them.
According to my research, examples of rare colors are: Imola Orange, Lime Green, Premium Sunset Mauve, Moonrock, Apex Blue (non-CR), Royal Navy Blue, Platinum White, Deep Burgundy, Monza Red, Monte Carlo Blue, and even Laguna/Bermuda Blue.

Here is a pic of mine - the color is not as rare as the others that I mentioned, but at least its a start to the thread...

I hate you. I have grown to love my Rio Yellow and then, based on your post, googled Imola Orange. I love that color. Dang.

Cosmo, I too have a Spa Yellow and am lusting after the Monte Carlo Blue. I see only one solution. Buy another S2000, why be monochromatic in your S2000 collection!!!

Hold on guys and/or gals. The yellows are GREAT, just not necessarily as rare as the one's I mentioned - IMO there isn't a bad color in the S2000 - I would take any one of them. And yes, Imola Orange is a stunning color - I saw one on Vancouver Island. The other rarity is that Imola Orange was only offered in Canada, just like Bermuda Blue was only offered in the USA.

Yep, except the Atomic Orange is a base coat/clear coat color which is easy to match if any repair needs to be done, i.e. front bumper repaint. Imola is a Pearl color which is very difficult color to match. Something to keep in mind when choosing a color.

I was hoping someone from Europe was going to post a Lime Green.
