also ordered CO with black leather (which does seem like the only logical interior color, although on another thread mentioned someone ordered CO with red leather!)
Yes, there are nice interior accents of the outside color. Plenty of photos at puresports.com
I, as with many others, struggled with the color choice. In fact due to the beauty of the Elise design, one could argue it looks great in any color. My final choices came down to visiability concerns. I'm planning to use the car as a daily driver and with all the large vehicles in the US, despite defensive driving, I plan to be seen as much as possible.
As mentioned by others in this thread, my choice was solidified once seeing the Espirit and new Exige in CO.
Since persecution seems rampent to those whose chose CO, I'm putting my $.02 in re: the other (less desirable) colors:
Saf Yellow -- My wife called it "Ford yellow", and since then I have noticed alot of Ford trucks and Explorers this same yellow. some also said with the black accents, it looks like a bumble bee.
Ard Red -- does look nice, no doubt. But next time your driving around notice how many other red cars there are. Like a major blood letting.
Artic Silver -- (see above) , the most popular car color the last couple years in the US.
Not only will blend in with all the other silver cars, but watch out for the soccor mom in the SUV. CRASH
A**tek Bronze -- Godzilla took a white car and wiped.
Mag Blue -- pretty car! saw it at the LA show. I have an SUV the same color, so no thanks for me.
Nightfall Blue -- so dark, at "nightfall" looks black. Elise desires to stand out.
Rac Green -- beautiful classic color. just sold my jag XJR in BRG with beige leather. still feel this car needs to be brighter
Bord Red Pearl -- another nice color, but not for a sports car. Grand-ma has a big caddy this color, enough said.
Storm titty -- (see silver)
Aub Purple -- purple? did you say purple
Starlight Black -- anyone see light from a star that's black? anyway, I'm looking forward to driving the car, not washing it
Graphite Grey -- although the same color as asphalt, looks absolutely gorgeous in pictures! Doesn't look quite as nice being pealed from the tread of a semi
Kryton Green -- i'm worried about anyone considering this color
Laser blue -- you have to be pretty comfortable with your masculinity to pick this "dodge neon" color.
Chrome Orange -- with the metallic flake, has a yellow tint in the sun; bold statement, yes. easily seen, yes. not an everyday color, yes. belongs on a sports car, yes. although difficult to imagine in person - does almost everyone love it once they actually see it on a car (ie, the espirit or exige)? it seems so!
To each his own
