Just to caution you Esprit, that photo looks more like a jet black rather than the metallic black that the Starlight actually is. I saw one a couple days ago at Fox Valley Motorcars. It looked great but it was a customer car so they won't have any pics of it on their website. The Metallic flakes could easily be seen.
mick, you're the man!! the elise looks great in black!! woo hoo!!
she sure does NOT look intimidated by the testarossa or the bimmers, does she!?! thanks for the extra pictures!
totally green, we're getting the std black interior with the cloth inserts, will be less hot than the leather seat surfaces. but still hot none the less. but this is my first lotus, and i've always wanted black/black. as an art director, colors mean a lot to me, as well as the visual relationships of shapes and colors. your combo is a great british/lotus combination! still waiting?
i'm patiently waiting for our SB (#23 s&sc). she'll probably arrive when there's snow on the ground, what a site that'll be!
The thing that doesn't show up in those photos is how *brown* the black looks in bright sunlight. When I was taking those pictures, I was hoping it would show up, but unfortunately it didn't. If you like the black, definitely try to see one in person on a sunny day so you aren't surprised.
