Blackberry Pearl vs Brillaint Black

Just curious, what is supposed to be the difference between the new Blackberry Pearl (PBV) and the Brillaint Black colors?

Is the Blackberry Pearl suppose to be a bit darkish purple-ish (like darker PCP) or it is simply the new black?

I wouldn't say it's it a darker PCP, looks black for the most part. But when your
close and in the right light you can see a very dark purple mixed in.

They're not getting rid of brilliant black but blackberry pearl is pretty close. When light's hitting it just right you can see the purplish/blue but otherwise it looks black.

Blackberry is not PCP. It is a very dark blue with a similar metallic to the Brilliant Black. It is a nice color, if you like blue, but I am not sure about it on a Challenger. Might look good on an RT with chrome wheels and no striping. I personally think the Deep Water Blue is a better color on the car.

I'd call it a really, really dark navy blue. I kind of like it.

Here is comparison between BB Pearl and Black from Dodge's web site (first two caravans), then BB Pearl real life pic and then I photoshopped a chally. What do you think...

Great job on the Photoshop work! If it is out. No purple cars for me.
If it is a deep blue It may look good in person.

I'll bet under "Neon" lites in a parking lot you wont like it. Thats when the purply effect will really jump out at you. If you think youd like it because it almost looks black, you're probably better off with black.
