Default Color of HPI Ford Focus RS body

Can anyone help me with the color of this body: https://www.hpiracing.com/en/part/105344. I just ordered this and a brand new RS4 Flux Porsche 911 RSR, which is my very first HPI model. I'd like to know what color they used in these advertising photos. What kind of green was used? Any help would be great. Thanks!

Did you give a shout out to HPI?

To me, it looks like, what I would call pearl-green. Parma has a few greens, but they are darker in color (at least on my laptop they look that way). Parma's Key Lime is probably too light and yellowish in color. I think Tamiya has the best assortment of green color. Try a search of RC car bodies with Tamiya Green paint. Maybe you'll see an image that shows a body, painted green, in sunlight that interest you, then you can go to the web page and hopefully someone listed/mentions the color they used on their RC. I've seen some metallic green bodies that look similar to the HPI body, but then you shine the light a different way, and then it looks too dark.

Good luck.

Throw a shout out to a RC body painting "specialist" and get their opinion.
