Armani chose a distinct palette of greys with touches of green, which are only visible under certain light conditions. the metal parts are treated with a matte paint to match the monobloc aluminium bodywork finish. Final stylistic touches include the distinctive “Emporio Armani” logo on the sides, and the headlight.
