Remember when you mix 2 colors you get a 3rd new color

its hard to imagine this color based on the composition. At least on the carbon black, you can see the blue being a large component hence the awesome dark blue sheen on carbon black.

So yeah, jerez black would probably look like a deeper black sapphire

correct w/ 80% black of course it will, sort of like carbon black were it all depends on lighting & angles to get its full effects....I love carbon black but its too dark for me maintaining it sucks also & in my house we have too many black cars w/ black interior, but someone get it w/ a red interior I can't wait to see it

main drawback is it does nothing to accentuate the CF roof...

From the press release and the microsite, it looks to have a blue-ish tint. Probably somewhat similar to Carbon Black.

Scott gave me this description about Jerez black:

"To think of Jerez Black - if you have ever seen Oil in a puddle of Black Dirty Water with that blueish greenish tint."

intresting color
