I had to google it, but yeah there are more people in Canada.

Australia/Population 25.69 million (2020)
Canada/Population 38.01 million (2020)
Thanks appreciate it.

Well I'll be seeing that exact car in Toronto in February, maybe it's less in your face IRL...

I was unsure of it as well, however after seeing it in person, I quickly changed my mind. It looks good. I took a couple chapsticks (Burt’s bees, Carmex) to help better portray it, and as you’ll see it’s a more…subtle yellow? Almost springtime, pastel-ish?

Smart move bringing a colour reference! I'll do the same, it's important in my case since the car won't be in natural light but sitting in a mall.

But assuming the car being placed in the mall is the car shown above, that will still leave the issue of how close the proto-spec launch edition yellow is to the production car yellow, they are different codes.

Thanks! And yeah, this was inside a convention center (auto show), so imagine it'll be a similar environment.

Devon, are you saying Nissan has 2 different yellow codes for the new Z?

I know the proto was a pearl yellow not destined for production......

Interesting. You mean the prototype and the Proto trim right?

Seems I made an incorrect assumption here, I was thinking the special edition proto trim was using the exact same paint as the actual reveal proto. But now I remember Dan mentioning the real proto's paint was unique, so it seems all yellow production cars will have the same paint code. I've altered my earlier post to reflect this.

All the Japanese language websites call this color squid yellow. Being former US Navy myself, I have to get this color now!
