Only one version AFAIK so it's all down to lighting.

This applies to many different colours.

It's fairly local to me (20 miles away). When I was looking for my RS they had one in which I wanted to view and drive. I arranged a time to meet the chap, but he didn't show. I rang him when he hadn't turned up and he said he'd had to go out. Slightly miffed I arranged to go 3 days later. I turned up at the agreed time but couldn't see the car on the forecourt. He turned up 20 minutes late and told me the car had sold.

 

Joke of a dealership. I wouldn't use them again.

 

Anyway, hope the viewing goes well.
