Exactly, even I've seen this color on the ANHC a few times around Delhi/NCR.
May be this color is available on special order.

Booked the ANHC EMT few days ago. They didn't offer me that color in E or any other model. Choices in EMT were white, silver, black and polished metal. Looks like a custom paint job.

Those are the Chauffeur driven vehicles belonging to ITC Hotel which opened on Residency Road+Lavelle Road Junction.

They have Bright Red, Orange, Green, Yellow and 2 more (I think Nailpolish Pink and Dark Blue)

I have seen this color on City couple of days back in Pune. Did not notice the variant though. It looks similar to the FTA color of Linea, may be a shade darker.

Its a honda job for sure. They customize the cars as per request from their management employees who buy the cars (or so I've been told), and have seen a warm silver (golden) shade Civics in NOIDA too, which is not available as stock.

Spottings in NOIDA is expected as the Honda factory is nearby.

I guess this colour is available. Seen quite a few Hondas with this colour.

The ANHC has the Inspire and Elegance (I guess), body kit options available, maybe it is part of that package. But I dont think it is any custom colour

Hey guys! my uncle has a similar coloured Honda City (2005 model). If i recall correctly I think its called Sherbet Blue and is an exclusive colour on the City (so they claim). Its part of the colour option on Jazz. But as far as City is concerned, its a limited edition colour (or it was back then) Hope this helps!

NHC had this earlier as an exclusive color for VTEC one, which towards the end of life for NHC was offered across all variants. Haven't come across this color on ANHC yet, asked my guy at Classic Honda, he said that this might be a custom paint done at ACE Honda.He said he confirmed from Honda's Regional sales manager if such a color existed to which the RM said "no".

This color is not so nice.

Since we're talking wierd colours, here's an aftermarket paint job. BTW the overall job and finish seemed to be perfect and very neat and tidy.

It definitely looks decent, though the car would depend on an individuals taste

I had once seen a bright pink Honda CRV in Gurgaon. It was parked at the Galleria
