Due to popular demand for more and better piccies, last night I visited a friend of mine with a talent for car photography and an awesome new Canon digital SLR. The pics are in late afternoon light, but give a much better color representation than my digicam pics.

Enjoy

Nice.

I note that my red MR2 would often turn out orange in bright sunlight with my digicam, even though to the eye it did not look like that.

Car looks great!

Nev,

Nice photo's. Do you plan on tracking your new 111R??
If so our company hosts several Elise track days down under. Just think you can go out and play with other Elise's on the track. I did this last year at Winton it's a blast!!!

Best Wishes with your new baby,
Mitch
Hi Mitch,

Yep, I'll definitely get on the track.

I've been to Philip Island, Calder and Sandown with previous cars, and Winton sounds like lots of fun.

Cheers,

Nev

The car looks great....I think I have Ardent envy...

Hey Randy - is there an "ignore" button that will block any post that has pictures of the car in any color other than Saffron ??? That is the only way to stop my second-guessing myself:(

Are you positive your Red MR2 wasn't Saffron?
Could you show us a picture of it in between a school bus and a taxi cab so we can check it out for you.

Randy: I think it's time for a second rendition of Mellow Yellow by Donovan.........Ridgeman's wild about saffron, saffron's wild about 'ridge'......

NevB,
Thanks for the pictures! I may go with red after seeing your pics. Also, your taillights, the inner lights that are lit brighter and are half-circled -- are those the rear fog lights (CRW_1506.jpg and CRW_1508-1.jpg)? Do the other halfs of the lights light up?
Thanks!

Hi shay2nak,

Yep, the other half lights up when the rear fog button is on.

Cheers,

Thanks again.

I'm glad to know it was the camera that was making the car look orangey. Looks much better in these pics. The late-afternoon pic shows the red in quite a scrumptious shade of red. Yummy !!!!
