Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, it looks like we won’t have to wait for an official announcement from MINI to see what Rebel Green looks like. Three pictures posted on [Total MINI](http://www.totalmini.com/forum/126-2015-3rd-generation/10728-2015-jcw-5.html#post134544) reveal the long awaited color, and as we originally thought, it is very close to the legendary Connaught Green exclusive to the JCW WC 50 announced in 2009. Although it appears to be equally similar to BRG II, we would almost call this color Metallic Connaught Green.

In [one of my recent posts](http://www.motoringfile.com/2014/12/08/white-remains-most-popular-car-color-in-2014/), I said that it is pointless to argue about taste and colors, but we can pretty much all agree this one looks fantastic. As some of you may know, the F56 JCW is on top of my wish-list for a next car and Rebel Green pretty much seals the deal for me. Stay tuned to MotoringFile for a full release in the coming weeks.
