Pretty much how these things go.

We flipped a red Prius into "Eco Green" for a local power utility who was giving one away for a promotion. That was about 12 or 13 years ago now, we weren't working in HD, and it took a team of colorists and graphic artists a week to roto and grade the thing. It would have been cheaper to just re-paint the actual car, but they wouldn't allow us to do that... even though that model was available (but not to us) in that color.

The thing about these supposedly straightforward tasks is that there is a blizzard of details that the team needs to solve -- the noise inherent in the media, motion blur in the swish pans, dust in the air, the fact that the car (in my case) also has *red* tail lights, and so on and on...
