Default 2014 RS5 (JUST ORDERED TODAY) exclusive color opinions

Hi all,
I just ordered my new RS5 today and this is the exclusive color I got on it. Apparently its not in the states yet on any audi so that's great news for me if true! What do you guys think? This is the only good representative image I could find online. I also got the black optic package as well as exclusive interior leather colors.

Hard to tell from that light. But it looks like meteor gray. I had that on my 2011 avant.

What is the color called ?

I like it. A very nice change of pace from black and the array of silver/gray on most.

Yes...It's Northen Blue Pearl. Was an A8 color many years ago. Very nice color from what I remember.

Just kinda pricey @ 3900 bucks. But for an 80k car, you might as well get what you want.

Thanks guys! appreciate the feedback. Those were my thoughts exactly. I see so many grays and blacks on the Rs5 and other Audi's in general, I wanted my Rs5 to stand out. The audi dealer told me most people that order the Rs5 don't even look at the exclusive colors and just get the grays or blacks, which is a shame in my humble opinion.

Reminds me of a late 1990s Mercedes color called Smaragdschwarz. Very nice

I LOVE Northern Blue Pearl. I told myself that if I ever ordered an Audi Exclusive car, it would be in this color. I would order it with either a dark brown leather or Alabaster White.

What color did you do on the interior? You MUST post pictures when the car arrives.

I absolutely will post pics! Seats are "cloudy gray" nappa leather and the contrasted stitching on the seats are "smokey blue" same colors apply to center console and steering wheel. They really do go well together. 3 months would have been the wait time but Amanda from VIP sales at AoA is expediting it so 2months is what I'm told.

Looks great! Nice to see something refreshing added to the typical black/white/grey palet.

Nice... I had my 2005 S4 Avant custom painted the same color.

Most people confuse it with the standard dolphin gray from a distance, but in the sunlight, it is a more visible dolphin "blue" with flecks of purple and blue.

Northern blue in foreground & dolphin gray in background.

Another B6 S4 sedan purchaser had also custom ordered (2) of his S4's in the Northern Blue Pearl effect color as well.

It's good to be different, but the pricing has gone up from $1500 to $3900. I wonder if you could custom order a manual transmission on U.S. cars that were only released as automatics...

Snopyro, thanks for these. I appreciate more views of the color. Yep as with most things Audi that price has gone up. It looks like it has held up pretty good for you! I love how it looks in the sun, I'm pretty excited and will probably stare at it in the garage all night when it gets delivered!

I like the colour.

That said, I ordered a RS5 2014 with Sepang Blue sight unseen. I'm willing to take the gamble. It will be the second one ordered in my city...and will look uber rare. Oh, and I got the Beaufort inlay with lunar silver seats and the titanium package. All in all, I know it will be beauty on wheels.
