    It's a colour I've looked at but I'm thinking about grey.

    It looks deeper than Pheonix but more orange than Tambora.

    To me, in the flesh Phoenix doesn't look very metallic it looks almost a solid paint. I have seen an RRS SVR done with Pheonix but the guys at SVO who post on RRSport.co.uk say they have never made one with Pheonix Orange so it must have been a wrap............. I saw it in Belize not long after SVR was launched. There is a Phoenix Orange DiscoSport in the next village to the village I live in and it looks very much like a solid shade. The D5 in the spy shots is too light to be Zanzibar so I wonder if it is a pre-production version of Vesuvius Orange.

    Another photo here with black pack in a different light.

    There's a pheonix DS in my are and I'm not overly impressed with it, especially with it being a premium metallic, it's as you say more of a solid looking colour.

    I've had two Loire Blues, so unless there's a new shade then that's out, I've had two whites so that's out, don't want Black, so at the moment Grey is still the favoured option.

    On the LR Configurator for RRS there are 19 new colours for 2017MY so I wouldn't be surprised if a few of them are available for D5. Some are £3500 additional cost and there are Satin Matte finishes for an extra £6500................... Never been a fan of Matte finishes, they alway look dirty! There are also a whole load of new Blacks.................... Had one black Volvo 480ES years ago, it was a very difficult car to keep clean and I haven't had Black since.

    One-piece tailgate

    Just seen this on the disco4 forum - looks like the 1-piece tailgate is certain. The 'activity platform' can just be seen poking out - be interesting to see how this works!

    I really should have been a Landrover test driver, they have some fun!
    If it keeps all it's offroad capability I'll be giving it a go.
    Sad to see they've kept the gear selector knob rather than a gear stick.
