Ok people. Same spec - color only vivid green vs air force blue?

I like bright colors on sports car so I’m drawn to vivid green. However air force blue is a great color imo.

Between those two which would you pick?

Also the vivid green one is a ‘20 so there is a better deal involved.

Green without any hesitation these cars were made to have bright lively colors.

Either one - it's strictly your choice! But, I will add my personal comment about vehicle colors: Why would anyone choose "white!" I have a compact with myself, "I will never buy a white car!"
Agree with you on the white comment. Even though I bought a white GTI (but for this car only, I think it's appropriate). Otherwise, on almost every other white car, it just looks incomplete.

Green is much classier IMHO. The better deal on a 20 makes your decision a cinch! Good luck!

I'm in the green camp. The flashy and unique colors seem to hold value better on the Lotus cars, if that's a consideration long-term.

I test drove a '21 vivid green with carbon today at Galpin. It's beautiful!.... but too bright for me as a daily though. Disagree with comment about dark colors, press photos for the GT430 were metallic grey and fire red and they are some of the best I've seen. Also saw a black/carbon at night a couple weeks ago, looked like the batmobile.

I think it depends on your personality and the car in question as to which color works best. Certain bright colors look good on the Evora in combination with black wheels and roof. Dark colors look good with silver wheels if you want a less flashy look. The latter hides some of the awkward styling on the Evora in my opinion, but others who happen to like it go for the contrast.

Update. I hesitated on the green car I was going to get and it went to another member here. Congrats to him.

I waffled a bit on the air force blue. Ultimately
it wasn’t what I wanted. My dealer did have a pewter grey en route which just showed up yesterday. I got a chance to see it - I’m stoked on the jet fighter look of the car.

Hah - so the people talking crap about nardo grey I’m sure won’t approve but I think the pewter grey really pops the black and red accents on the car. I’m getting black wheels, red calipers, red seat centers. And of course the exposed supercharger bit is red as well.

I would have picked it up today but the lotus PDI guy is on vacation apparently.

I should take delivery in the next 2 weeks. Hopefully the dealer doesn’t sell to someone else. First time I’ve had verbal dibs - I offered a deposit as well. The team seems trustworthy so we shall see.

If it were me and that's the car I wanted, I'd insist on writing a purchase contract with a deposit. As they say in business law, "A verbal agreement isn't worth the paper it's printed on."

Pretty car! Wonder why the battery cover isn't on, needed a jump or recently replaced? Mine needed a new battery soon after I took delivery, likely since it had sat for a while. Something to be aware of, and if an issue hopefully they'll catch before you take delivery.

The car hasn’t gone through the formal pre delivery inspection process yet. thanks

You’re right - but I’m willing to throw the dice. There are enough evora GTs around that I’ll buy one from a different dealer if the pull any shenanigans.

I guess I'm late to the convo.. I think you made the right choice, cool color.

Congratulations, evora abides! What a great color! You will love that car so much. I had a 2017 Focus RS in a similar gray and I loved the sort of Mil-Spec look of it. On an Evora, it looks like a fighter jet.

I like this grey and the darker one too. Really great thing is that these colors can really pop with many different accent colors, stripes, etc.
Hope it works out for you!

Congrats on the car. I did want to say I think the bright colors will hold their desirability and value for these cars in the future. They are a beautiful, rare and aggressive design, it lends itself to the flashier colors.

Congrats! I think it's safe to say that the Evora can really pull of any color, really a testament to the design.

If anyone is looking for a manual in Vivid Green, Ferrari Lotus of Denver just got a 21 GT in yesterday.
