The last picture here makes me second guess my initial thought to rule out Limestone. I don't want another silver or gray vehicle. It looks closer to launch green in that picture, which I really like. Definitely will reserve further judgement until I see some trucks.
Maybe that’s why they’ve held it—because it’s close to Launch Green.

It sounds like you might have some inside information. Care to share with the other Limestone lovers out here?
Yes, a bit of inside info. Someone inside Rivian that knows colors well said it is their color choice.

Oooh. Now that makes sense. :like:
Suppose its possible but dont really think so. Below is a recent photo of someone holding up Limestone swatch to Launch Green.

To me its closer to LA Silver than Launch Green below.

But who knows, maybe in full paint and in certain light it does look similar. I mean those two swatches of Limestone look pretty different and they were taken only a week or two apart.

In another thread @1973LT posted the following photo. Surely it couldn't possibly be or even remotely approximate.... Limestone?

I saw the color swatch at the Venice store. To me - It's more like El Cap or a gun metal with green in it than launch green. But it's still hard to tell from the little sample they had there.

I'm rolling the dice and going with Limestone unless I think it's going to delay the delivery and I'll pick something else.

Hey everyone, I've seen a lot of people having issues identifying Limestone, so I made a handy flowchart to help if you see something that you think might be Limestone. Hope this helps!

Thank you for this! It all makes sense now and clears up much of my confusion.

an old post but thought it might interest folks here who havent seen it. the guys at Rivian Stories posted this on IG about 4 months ago and i think they talked to the head of design and Rivian or maybe someone who talked to him... friend of a friend. anyway, that person said its grey with a hint of green. mabye something like below. i hope it is close to that. most of the newer grey colors ive seen tend to hint towards blue but kinda like that it might be more green.

Why are there still no photos? I think I might really like this color but am scared it will delay my order by choosing it. Come on Rivian, give me a reason to believe!

It's really weird, honestly. I thought for sure they were waiting to show it when the first R1S's rolled off the line. But nope.

I'm guessing they're running into issues with paint matching on different parts and surfaces. Matching matte or low metallic colors is notoriously difficult, especially when on different surface types.

I actually noticed that the door handles didn't match the rest of the body paint very well on the El cap truck when I saw it, and that's very metallic. Limestone is likely even more troublesome.

i asked CS about this on monday and they have no idea why Limestone has not been produced on any vehicles yet. they said they've been to the factory floor many times and have not seen that color. but still totting the company line that it is still indeed being offered.
fingers-crossed but my hope is waning.

I was configured with limestone for a while but switched off it until there is more info. I expect it's a not looking right and they'll ditch it or reformulate it before it's actually out in the wild.
