after all the hassles and work Arnie's done these past few years to get the car here, he certainly should be held in high regard for any buyer of the US elise (or 111R for that matter)
I don't know what Arnie looks like. I'm guessing he's the guy in one of the photos below. Why would you say people chose a color just because he stands next to a car? Are you just being stupid? I've not seen many or any shots of CO until the shots below were posted. I don't need anyone to stand next to a car to make me like the color. I can choose that on my own. Maybe if Lotus would have posted photos of the actual colors beforehand, we'd have a better feel for what we want.Ridgemanron said:Arnie poses next to a car and everyone acts as if the Playmate Of The Year did it, saying 'gimme,gimme,
gimme!' P.S. - As Bette Davis once said about being adored by the public, 'You
either got it...or you don't. It's as simple as that!'
Which is why there were no pictures of Elises painted Chrome Orange to show us (as someone pointed out somewhere previously) - there were no Chrome Orange Elises...shinoo said:Many of you may not know that CO was not one of the original colors LCU planned to offer. The COM petitioned LCU to offer it and they listened!

By the way, my pick has always been CO - no changing orders for me, as it was in the first batch...
adam, did George tell you they were getting 8 in the first batch?!?!Adam P said:.
Tim, I am also in the first batch, and I just got my order changed to CO last week. Im number 8 at Gonzaba Autoplex. This means that our cars are not being made yet..
You can say that again.zvezdah1 said:It's amazing how we can say things and they be misinterpreted, happened to me many times (more than I'd care to remember)
Oh well, glad we continue to be one big happy family!
George said; "it might be 3, or 5, or 8 in the first bacth of cars". That is exactly what he said to me on the phone. He said he would tell me more after the launch, ill post it when I talk to him on friday!atyclb said:adam, did George tell you they were getting 8 in the first batch?!?!
I don't think Arnie is going to give you a free car or an early delivery no mater how much you pucker upRidgemanron said:If Arnie stood next to Krypton Green, people would be going over to that color. It's the same when the other Arnie poses with a
certain golf club......sales go up. 'Star Quality' people have that effect on the public. Didn't you ever hear about what they do on Madison Avenue?
Well, keep in mind, that if they have 38 dealers each getting 10 cars (one demo and 9 customer cars), it's going to take a while to get 380 cars made.Adam P said:.am also in the first batch, and I just got my order changed to CO last week.

Chrysler's Lime green was a shade or two darker than KG appears to be.ex-M3 said:Didn't they make a Barracuda in that color; or was it the 71-72 240Z. I think KG is cool in an ugly 60's kind of way.
