Obviously a trick of the fake coloring - but Cosmic Girl Purple has enough light/dark variation in the rendering that it really shows off the lines of the car...

That's my choice - and thanks for your effort on putting this together! :)

So first of all, you're right, and the reason is that "Cosmic Girl" is actually the only one in that set that's a metallic paint! It's based on "Magma Red" from the Lotus configurator, whereas all the others are essentially "flat" colours which were based on "Hethel Yellow". (Initially I tried just creating Cosmic Girl the same way I did all of the others, but the result looked like garbage, and nothing like the Lamborghini "SE30 Purple" on which it's based. 馃槃 Funny how some paint colours feel like they NEED a metallic finish!)

(By the way @dmaxdallas, hope you saw the updated purple in the post! The thread bugged out when I tried to tag you earlier :p)

I want my Emira in Venom Green from the Evija paint options. Or KG or IG. If not I will not be purchasing. The deposit is 100% refundable.

I recommend everyone message Lotus Cars on Instagram as to which paint color option should be added to First Edition. There is power in numbers.

There 'might' be more paint options come the time to make a contractual order.
Just an internet rumour at this time. They have the means to do this.

I know I'm not the only one on this site who thinks it's unacceptable that the Emira launched with only a single vibrant-coloured paint option (Hethel Yellow).

Ergo, I've taken matters into my own hands and put together a list of what I think are all of the missing "vibrant colour options" that we need!

I'll be ordering my Emira in one of the shades below. 馃槑 Which one is your favourite? What ones did I miss that you'd also like to see?

Either orange or greeeeen for me.
I was surprised with how few color choices there were on the configurator. I was expecting some colors to carry over from the evora/exige/elise. I bet they have buckets of that paint sitting in a shed somewhere.

I'm sure more color options will be announced once the First Edition cars are manufactured.
