The elusive Hematite Metallic color

Has anyone seen this color in person? I just now found a youtube video of it that had some actual pictures. But other than that its just CGI pictures. No dealer around here has any. Im sure they will get some in the future but Im wanting to buy one soon and Im deciding between the hematite and the alabaster silver.

I cant link youtube since Im at work but search for 2013 Hematite Accord.

Its looks like there is a little green in there but its hard to tell on a computer screen.




BTW anyone know the speaker sizes of the Sport model?

Same color as mine - I suspect we'll see a lot of them on the road later in the year. I would have liked to have seen one in Hematite though but wasn't going to wait around to do so!

I've seen one. It grayest and darker then modern steel. It changes color depending on the light hitting it, most likely because it is metallic. You can see green sparkles when the sun hits it but the green is hard to see in the shade. I like it but others may not.

I took some photos with my iPod Touch but they are not too good. I will post them if someone tells me where to save the photos so I and add them to this thread.

PS
The only sedan colors I have not seen in person are Champagne and basque red.

I found a dealer in Illinois that has one in. Here are a few shots he sent me. Definitely some green in there. I wish there was no green in it and it was a dark metallic gray. That would have been nice. Looks like a silver sport for me now.

The hematite color looks pretty sharp IMO. ANYTHING but alabaster silver metallic. I saw the Basque Red II color and its not bad if that color suits you. When I got my V6 they had it in the color I have and the Basque Red II

I don't know - from those pictures I rather like it. I'll bet it looks sharp at night.

I gotta tip my hat to Honda for their color styles this gen. Some of their new colors look pretty sweet.

I saw this color at the dealer yesterday and I really love it. It's like a grayish, brownish, black (if that makes sense) and when the sun hits it looks really sharp. If I went to buy the 2013 Accord, it would be my top choice.

I picked up on today, it is a really polarizing colour, you either love it or hate, definitely not for people who like neutral tones. However, since I love a darker green with some earthy tones, it definitely is my style.
