Hi, can anyone please tell me what color this is? Also does anybody have any other pictures of this color? The photography is very flattering and I want to know if the color looks like this in real life.





Thanks in advance!

It's an '05 car if that helps. I looked at other Polar Blue pictures and they don't seem to compare at all to what my eye sees.

There was Nightfall Blue, Magnetic Blue, & Laser Blue in 2005. It doesn't look like any of those colors. Maybe it's the camera or a custom color. It looks really pretty. Has a hint of purple in it.

In case these make it any easier. My main concern is that it doesn't look like any other of the colors and I'm worried that it's a trick of the light and I'll like it less when I manage to go and see it.









Thanks for the help so far...

-Mike

Laser Blue according to the dealer who is selling it.
It looks closest to that color, although on my screen a bit lighter and not as bright. Almost dull.

Thanks Johnny. I didn't see that on their website anywhere. Have you seen the car or are you familiar with the dealership?

Thanks, -Mike

Silly question, but why doesn't the seller know? To me it looks like lazer blue.

Here's a lazer in the background and a magnetic blue in the foreground:

I'm starting to feel like I need to see this color in person. There seems to be a lot of 'flop' in the color based on the Google Image Search I just did.

Was this a Lifestyle color or a standard one?

You can upload big images to the gallery - LotusTalk Lotus Gallery - it will resize them and provide a link to paste into the thread (also keeps the original if someone wants more details) :)
Is the paint code in the VIN somewhere?
No - the paint code is on the car but not within the VIN.

I have laser blue, and those photos look like laser blue to me.
the color is metallic with also a bit of a pearl effect.
look in the gallery on this website, and i have posted a closer picture of one of the corner panels of the car. maybe you can see what i was trying to describe.
yes, i'm partial to laser blue. i ordered the car from the factory as such.
best of luck with your decision.

Look at the other colors in the background, grass, leaves, the green trash cans across the street. The photo's are definitely subdued.

It's Laser Blue.
