Does is sometimes show as blue? I am leery of a black car, and not interested in Onyx Black, Black Stone, and other Volvo black paint codes. But code 452 Black Sapphire Pearl sometimes appears on internet listings as midnight blue-ish. Does it have that split personality, where one can say "it's not REALLY black..."?

My '05 V70 was black sapphire metallic and it was the only black color car I could tolerate. It's definitely black but has a nice metal flake to it that does make it look dark gray blue in certain lights. I don't know that I'd buy another one because I hate keeping black cars clean but this one was at least tolerable for the 9 years I owned it. The person who bought the car from me subsequently had a it detailed and it looks incredible still, 14 years from new.
