Default 2014 Nismo build mistake?

Ok so I was checking out the options for the 2014 Nismo so I went to Nissan's website and started building away. When choosing a color, the body kit seems to be the same color as the paint of the car and not gun metal. Is this just a mistake on Nissan's part because we clearly have seen the car with the gun metal accents like in this video.

I am a Nissan employee and ordered my magnetic black 2014 Nismo back in May and still haven't gotten a VIN number yet. My delivery date is mid September but I kinda doubt that will come. As for the body front lip spoiler and side skirt rails I heard they were black. I wonder if it's all based on what exterior color the car is?!?!?

They're actually gun metal as well. I saw a 2014 Nismo being sold on autotrader which was magnetic black with gun metal lip, side skirts, mirrors, etc. I kinda wonder for the gun metal what they'll do for the secondary color. Here's the link to the one I saw

I noticed the same thing on the website but so far I've seen 3 out of the 4 colors being sold and all had the gun metal accents. The only one I have seen is the gun metal. Figure that may have black but not sure on that

EDIT: Actually I took another look on autotrader and found a gun metal version. It appears that it doesn't have the secondary color or if it does its very faint. I figured they would use black in this case but apparently not. Kinda odd since the other three do have that secondary

I'm not sure if I like the gun metal with the black. I get is a one year lease and I would consider buying it if my serial number is low enough. Again though I'm not sure about that color matching.

I like the gunmetal on a red or white one, but black...from the side it just looks like Nissan forgot to paint it. Especially towards the back where the gunmetal extends up along the wheel arch. The red stripe though is absolutely hideous and makes the car looks cheap.

Thanks for clearing things up. Looks like it's just a mistake on Nissan's website. Good really throw off some buyers though.

Hideous...
I thought the accent was going to be black... Gray looks off...

On white, ok, on black it's especially ugly

Generally I'm not a big fan of white cars but I do really like the 2014 pearl white Nismo. Out of the 4 it's probably my favorite. The magnetic black with gun metal does look kinda odd and I'm a bit surprised that it appears they didn't do anything with the gun metal Nismo from the link I posted. It definitely does remind me of the late 350Z Nismo with how they did the 2014's.

Looks like my 2013 Mag Black Nismo just went up in value.. The 2014 black Nismo looks horrible! The white looks good but the black looks unfinished for sure and the red accents look cheap as well on the black.
The gray one actually appears to be slightly darker then the gunmetal color so it looks like the painter was off in color matching rather then its a two tone.

Fail for Nissan here for sure, a HP bump would have been the thing most wanted to see.
Here's my version for the Nismo new model:
Shave 200 pounds off (weight 3100ish)
Recaro seats with Nismo embroidery (Black with red stitch)
Nismo shift knob exclusive to Nismo
Carbon fiber top portion of wing
Nismo intakes

Who would have liked that for the "revisions"?
I think all are reasonable

I second Volk Z's version of the 2014 improvements ... That's what I would've liked to see too

The website is all jacked up, if you expand sport package options > brakes, it says "to keep its 350 horses in check the 370 NISMO..."

I'm still wondering why the touring package costs 5000 on the Coupe and $3000 on the convertible

The convertible also gets COOLED seats
