Only thing I don't like is why would they put shiny wheels on a matte car. If I got this car and didnt put aftermarket rims, I would have the oem wheels repainted to matte black, with matte black grilles.

edit: Just noticed the shadowline trim is also shiny black, thats a big no no

I think Palladium Silver would do it. It doesn't look as good in pics as in real life but I bet that would look real good. They also need to black out the gills and grills. I looks like the kidney grills are mostly black but they need to finish it with black trim around it.

It isn't actually without the clearcoat, it has a Matte finish clearcoat that way it still has UV protection and durability.

The car has to be completted detrimmed, sanded with a fine grit sandpaper, masked for overspray, then clearcoated with a matte clear, then put back together. Space grey to frozen grey = $6500 outside only or $8000 inside out(quoted by C&C Collision,Pasadena)

there is a clearcoat! It is a matte clearcoat. In addition they may have sprayed a standard clear first and then the matte clear for better longevity.
