nardo grey Audi RS7

Audi released the RS7 in 2013, it was a sleek new model that combined the body of the A7 with a twin turbo V8. It came in a variety of colours.

Daytona grey and nardo grey were two new grey colours.

The nardo grey colour grew incredibly popular during the following 10 years. People were drawn to its confident but dignified manner.

This hue is incorrectly referred to as "flat grey" by some. The term "flat" is widely used to describe any non-metallic vehicle paint. In reality, the term "flat" refers to a certain kind of clear coat or protective layer of the paint work.

The top layer of nardo grey is really shiny. The hue is surprisingly complex for a grey, with blue undertones and the aforementioned glossy texture adding something special.

Audi reserves Nardo Grey for its RS series of cars. As of 2022, it is available on the RS5, RS6, RS7, and RSQ8.

Other automakers picked up on the insane popularity of this colour and created their own versions of nardo grey.
