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?

Short answer is the car is Jupiter Grey.
