Out of pure interest I've done some digging on this colour (569) and have found a few things out...

It was also offered on the Toyota Sera (where it was madly popular) and a similar colour was revived on the Lexus CT200h.

In Japanese it is known as being colour "グリニッシュイエローマイカメタリック" which translates to "Greenish Yellow Mica Metallic" if you pronounce aloud.
In english speaking countries 569 is offically know as "GREENISH YELLOW PEARL"

Also it was featured on this GT-R 4WS celica in their brochure materials overseas however it looks more like orange version of the Almond Beige Pearl colour:

Toyota's actual paint code for Gold is 405, 407, 442, 472, 511, 520... the list goes on.

In total the ST18X was offered in 12 different colours over its life in Japan, more colours were offered in other countries.

I haven't been able to find a single photo online other than silverspeed's 569 185 which leads me to believe that this is still a very very rare colour for the ST18X chassis. However dirty super yellow ST205's do come close... :twisted:

If only 4 were ever made, I'm willing to bet this is the only one left. Especially considering Japans laws on older cars
