I think that's smoke grey. Even playing around with the colours, the grass is bright green by the time it's Surf blue.

This Week’s Star Prize! – (Sale of the Century – Anglia Television 1971–1983)
‘And now from Norwich – it’s the quiz of the week!’ For 12 years the show at its peak would attract more than 21m viewers as contestants battled it out for prizes, contestants apparently mesmerised by the awesome sight of this week’s four-wheeled prize. The show’s ace voice man, John Benson would frequently enthuse over the luxury features of a Mini City or 1000 - namely ‘a heated rear window’ and ‘a rear fog lamp' or in later years an entry-level Austin Mini Metro. This 1983 clip dates from the last days of Sale of Century and on this fine Metro City someone has evidently switched on the hazard lights in a vain attempt to distract from its single door mirror and non-halogen headlamps.... :D
