My guess is that the picture in the magazine was brightened up to give more definition to the color. Otherwise you really wouldnt be able to decipher if it was black or just really dark blue.

I like that "copper metallic" color they have on the new GP, Chevy cars, etc, I like it. It'* interesting.
