Please look site below, it says Juniper Gray

Is this correct? If so, what’s color code?

The third page of the accompanying magazine article clearly states Jupiter grey, juniper is a typo/misprint.

Jupiter seems to be different from this one. This car has a bluish grey, different from Jupiter.. Am I wrong?

Colours will vary quite a bit depending on the lighting conditions when the picture was taken as well as any filters used or editing done. Even the pictures shown on the page you linked differ quite a bit as to the car's colour. Case in point are the following pictures I've taken of my car:



Kinda difficult to believe they're all the same car isn't it?

Short answer is the car is Jupiter Grey.
