Any flat or satin blue cars?

I want to repaint my RX7 as the car has some scratches here and there and I'm adding a full bodykit with quite a bit of CF parts so I want some contrast. The car is currently black and the traditional thing to do would be gunmetal.

But the idea I got is paint it a flat or satin finish dark blue. Something like this.

Does anybody have a picture of a car or something bigger in that color?

Thumbs up paint question...

I have not seen anyone do this color but there are some flat black cars out there.
I think it would look awesome to do a suede blue (old school hot rodders do this look all the time) I say go for it and make a statement it's time we something creative and unique in the community!

I was actually thinking about going flat red with mine but that blue does look pretty good.

Ok guys I decided I will do it. And I finally found a car that has the paint I want.

Click the image to open in full size.

Thats how I will get the car painted perhabs a little bit darker.

The car will feature a Sanai Front Bumper, Feed Front Fender, Feed Carbon Skirts, Sanai Carbon Diffusor and a "little" bit of fenderpulling on the rear. This all together with gold BBS LM 18" wheels and a silver/black alcantara interior.

make sure to post up some photos when you get it done, please. I am considering the same blue, or a nice satin metallic black.

Not sure on the colour, but the clearcoat is DC series with HF09 flattening agent.
