Not saying how solid this info is, but from this site it said that there were only 10 mocha steel cars in 2012 and only one of them a manual trans car.

they look purple in person, thats why there's only one lol

There's only 1 due to the color, which I personally don't believe really counts as far as value, unless it is a special package paint, like the Black Diamond Edition. If you go by color, there are several 1 of 1 coupes, but that is mainly due to them having 6m transmissions too. Those are rare to start with, with only about 25% of coupes having a third pedal, and in an unpopular color and wala a rare combination of maybe a not so rare car.

Black Diamond Edition wasn't anything special either. It was just the first year for BDT paint, back wheels, and yellow calibers. After 2011 it was just a bother paint option.

The only Mocah I’ve seen is on this forum and it’s a sedan I believe. Maybe this is the color that inspired the pedestal edition? Maybe not. Just found it interesting he was claiming 1 of 1.

I think you guys are confusing mocha, which is a brownish grey to majestic plum which is a greyish purple.

Neither is a good color IMO but some people find beauty in rarity.
you are correct, im confusing baby poop brown with my fair lady pink
I can remember when I would bring my wife's coupe or my V in for service seeing the same brown sedan on the showroom floor for months and months and months. I always wondered what they ended up selling it for to get rid of it
I remember my salesman telling me they brought it inside hoping someone would fall in love with it all clean and under the lights- no such luck lol

I'd rather have the Barney Purple than than "I've got the runs Brown."

Would be a great candidate for a wrap because paint correction won't help that color.

I haven't seen that color in person so I'll reserve judgment (just this once) 'til I do..
Purely based on online images, I don't see anything wrong about it.

Yessir - it may actually be sexy in person. To me it looks like a color you normally see on a Seville or DeVille.

I am shocked, SHOCKED I say, that hardly anyone ordered their fire-breathing Cadillac coupe in such an exciting shade of beige/brown.
Even if I'm not particularly fond of Grabber Blue Cadillacs I'm glad they are offering colors like that and orange now over the unusually tinted shades of grey that the V2s got. Although I did actually like Evo Green.
