Aw frown

I was just going off the little bit of the dash I can see through the windscreen. Looks like chestnut tan to me!

Looks fantastic!

Is it either Kestral tan or Madagascar tan? If not I'm stumped.

Definitely an AML option?

Well you may be correct, but dont know what shades those are you mentioned. The dealer in the US advertises the interior as "Bentley Cognac"!

All I know is that the exterior/interior colour scheme really does do it for me...double lick

Interesting. Never heard of that one, I've done some googling and found this DBS for sale with it - http://www.bentleyofaustin.com/web/vehicle_photos/...
According to that advert it's special order.

I'm delighted to say I've just obtained my first New Zealand V12V, also a Mako Blue example #301 and which was probably on the production line at the same time as my #307!
Thanks to Mark at AM Auckland for the info! biggrin

The V12V gives me a grin factor I never experianced with my 997GT3! They are superb cars.
Can you tweet Mr Slash and ask him for his last 3 VIN numbers and some info on his V12V?! wink

Haven't forgotten this Mako, but haven't seen the car since January and won't until May due to working abroad. From memory it's number 355. Storm Black. I'll confirm asap (which isn't very soon alas).
