I can't name a favorite color... sometimes I feel really british and want to drive BRG/LRG... sometimes I feel like blending in with graphite gray... and sometimes I want to be chrome orange.

Did you guys pick your lotus based on its color...? Or did you get a lotus for another reason, and just accept the color?

Top 3 colors....... GO

(poll only allows 20 options, so we can't include every color!)

Isotope or Krypton Green
Chrome Orange

I didn't pick mine based on its color but it was a plus. There were some cars I passed on based on color though.

This link has a list with pics of the 35 different Exige S2 colors available (not including the special editions like the Club Racer or Scura):

Lotus Exige

If you make a poll, can you include that many options???

Anyway, my top three for Exiges would be:

1 - Chrome Orange
2 - Ardent Red
3 - Sky Blue (as on the Club Racer)

There are so many great colors though. Tough to choose. I also like the Isotope Green and Ice White a lot.

My favorite color is BRG.

I bought my Persian Blue because that's what the dealer had in his showroom, and I do like the color, it's just not my favorite. Other favorites are Solar Yellow, and for Evoras only I like white and aquamarine. I think some colors look good on some Lotus models but not others.

ETA: Lotus offers the best color palette of any car manufacturer, hands down.

Of course, for my own car, I love the "Indy Green" aka Motorsport Green, with the classic Lotus contrasting yellow stripe.

But Chrome Orange is super impressive on an Elige or Evora. Have that on wheels, mirrors, wing endplates on the Elise.

i chose mine because of 3 reasons
1/ I wanted a bright color,imo ,these tiny little things need to be seen or youre asking to be totalled or worse
2/the black accents really pop on a bright color
3/i always thought krypton and c/o reminded of jap spec fast and furious,and red(look i have a ferrari) so wasnt interested in them ,i like looking at them,but wasnt interested in owning that color and silver/white seem very boring to me

so it was saffron yellow for me

My 3 are:

1. Chrome orange
2. Laser Blue
3. Storm Ti - my favorite of all the more subtle colors.

I'd also add persian blue metallic as a close fourth but that's only available on the Exige.
