the r8 is mugello blue with night blue blades - the depth of the blue varies hugely depending on lighting, in overcast lighting it goes to a navy blue.

I recently saw a bright blue in an image, but the image was poor quality and taken at dusk. Hard to say what color it was. Perhaps the shade does vary a lot.

I have mugello so I've seen it look like in both those r8 pics and also seen it look like a very dark navy going on black depending on the lighting conditions.

The S5 is definitely not Nogaro. It looks like Sprint or maybe Sepang.

I wish I could see all of these colors in person. I have seen (own) Nogaro and Sprint blue. But when I order the R8 it will either be Mugello or Sepang, and I have seen neither. No photo or brochure color patch can really illustrate what these pearl effect colors look like in person. That was particularly true of Nogaro.

Edit: Here is the best example of Sepang I have found-

I am a big fan of blue.I especially like the blue anodised look.Since the R8 has an aluminum body...anodised colors could be offered too. I have seen an aluminum bodied Cobra that had been fully polished to chrome status.The R8 could be polished out TOO !!!!!!!

Are you positive that this RS6 is sepang ? I just ordered my sepang R8 and the pictures that i saw of sepang R8s look different than this RS6.

I am pretty sure.

It is from this press release:

http://www.motorauthority.com/revealed-audi-rs6-avant.html

Images can be seen better here:

There are several sites with that press release. One looks different from all the rest:

I don't think that one looks right when compared to all the other images I have seen and to my 2009 R8 brochure (with the V10 stuff I got at the Detroit auto show). Here is an R8:

I like it. It looks like Sprint blue mellowed with a little Nogaro mixed in. Like you said, it is tough to tell how it will look in person as these pearl effect colors look so different depending on the lighting. Even in the Flikr set, the color looks different from image to image. Closeup it looks alot like Sprint blue. In darker lighting I could be convinced it was Nogaro (as in the R8 showroom image).
