i think it looks good, but possibly a little too much pink, needs black side scoops front splitter and wing (or CF if thats your thing) that would soften the look allot.

I think they should revise that annual fuel cost estimate on the window sticker a bit for a more current outlook on the gas prices! This might be the one color I don't like on this car.

Nice MR2.

"Bring back Chili red."

No, don't. I prefer them not bringing it back so those that have it will have a rare color!

This was my first thought too. Just get SweetDaddyD to make some numbers for the sides but instead of black numbers on a white circle, put the black numbers in a white Hello Kitty-shaped head.

Based on the pictures I have seen, it only looks THAT pink in certain light. The same way you can see gold in the Chili Red paint when the light hits it right. I haven't seen it in person, but I'm guessing it's a red base coat with a lot of pink pearl in the clear, resulting in a kind of shimmering fuchsia lipstick color.

candy is shot with a base coat (which determines its final color) and a transluscent color on top of the base coat to achieve such a deep gloss, very extensive process, but now they have "fake" candy colors, which is what MOST people use nowadays, im pretty sure even the Lotus doesnt use "real" candy

I went by the dealer on Sunday to get some good shots of this car, but it was parked in the showroom so I couldn't get a decent shot.

I kinda like it...

There are some cars look really great in those unusual colors. I think Lotuses look great in those colors -- candy red, KG, etc. I really hope we'll see the Bugatti blue Lotus!!!


This McLaren GTR (#019R) has a combination of bright pink-ish coloar and black. I really like this combination.
