The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage came into this world decked out in a fantastic eye-searing highlighter green, looking every bit like the expensive super tuner car from the future it should. And only now am I finding out the official name for this color and I don’t know exactly what Aston was going for.
Indeed, it’s called Lime Essence.
I saw this online and assumed, hey, maybe some other random website dubbed it that as a joke. Ha ha. Lime Essence. Lie-Mess-Ents? Lime-Ess-Ants? Whatever. Couldn’t be real.
But no, search the actual Aston Martin website and there it is, staring back at you like you were looking at an ad for Pledge.
Oh well, it looks cool, even if it’s got a name like a countertop cleaner. I’m not mad.
