Feeling inspired by @centerpunch 's Photoshop edit from a couple of weeks back, and tired of being drip-fed new Emira upates every couple of weeks, I decided to spend my Sunday afternoon making some fresh renderings of every possible paint colour option on the Emira, plus some others that I'd love to see.

The difference this time around is that I used a real-life press photograph of the Seneca Blue Emira as my base, instead of screenshots from the online Emira configurator (which I think we all agree by now is hot garbage in terms of colour accuracy...).

Anyways, please enjoy these renderings while we wait, and feel free to suggest any other colours that I might've missed! (Note: flat colours seem to work best here. If you really want a mock-up of a metallic paint colour then I'll have to try using a photograph of the "Shadow Grey" press car instead.)

There's not a color this car looks bad in. That's a huge plus!! If I could choose any of these: Krypton Green. Or Bright Green. Or maybe Chrome Orange?? Light blue is also nice. How does one choose?? o_O:ROFLMAO:

Very cool. Thanks for doing this. I love black cars, but here the color is a disservice to the car's exquisite shapes and lines. The red one absolutely spanks any modern Ferrari. And to my surprise, if I had to choose right now, from these colors, I think I'd be going with that light blue, wow!

Slap some gold pinstripes and wheels on the black one and you’ll have the first Emira Special Edition.

Also into black cars, but I wouldn’t buy this or an Evora in black. The lines POP with vibrant colors

If anyone is interested in what the Emira should look like - including colors or livery specifications, just look at the Evija. Evija - Lotus Cars

Zenith:
Tire Vehicle Wheel Car Automotive lighting


Icon:
Tire Wheel Car Vehicle Automotive lighting


Legend:
Tire Wheel Vehicle Automotive lighting Hood


And here are a few basic colors, which I'd take my Emira in:
Venom Green:
Tire Wheel Vehicle Grille Automotive parking light


Solar Flare:
Tire Wheel Vehicle Car Grille



Given how much the Emira follows the lines of the Evija, I definitely think there will be some great options to make it pop beyond what it already is. Just looking at these colors makes me want to wait until next year, when I can get more color choices and maybe bespoke colors.
