BMW "Tartufo" leather color

Has anyone seen BMW's tartufo brown leather in person? None of the dealers around me seem to have any cars with it in stock and I'm curious whether it's as orange as it looks in some pictures.

I feel like I did yesterday. I don't think it's quite as orange as this, and not quite as tan as cognac.

Good example of an gorgeous interior color I think Porsche should offer.

Thanks everyone. Plaz - if Porsche did this color EVERYTHING would be that color - seats, dashboard, floors, steering wheel, radio buttons, etc.

I saw the thread title "BMW 'Fartolo' leather color" and thought, "Never heard of that color," opened the thread and thought, "sure looks like what it sounded like, but, wow. I can't believe they did that."

Then I read the thread title correctly.

Agreed. That's the problem with Porsche interiors and why I prefer their darker colors (black, browns, etc.).
