I also posted this same poll on r/Lotus. Dark Verdant is the top choice so far; +60 total votes have been cast.

I'd like a "paint to sample" option. Is the Nimbus Grey the same as Audi's? As great as Lotus' configurator is, I cannot get a read on a few of the colors. I know on the GT, the colors look different in person than on the site. Is Hethel Yellow a metallic?

I'm shocked They dont offer orange, white, or another bright color like krypton green. I feel that's What makes Lotus fun, having bright colors to choose from. So with that said, my vote goes to yellow although I'm not a fan of yellow. If I wanted to go more classic, the dark green would be my next choice... then add some yellow stripes.

I totally agree. I’m hounding my Lotus dealer for details. The response I got is that they’ll be showcasing around North America this November with paint samples and cars.

For sure, the red is most likely to look as it does on the screen. The blue we've seen in the presentation. Was dark verdant the one Jensen drove? He mentioned he fancied the yellow. I am digging that one too.

Keep in mind these are all the first edition colors. I'm sure Lotus will offer more and/or custom ones, just like they did in the later Evora models. Maybe the limited color selection is to test out their new paint booth/methods; less to correct if things go horribly sideways.

Well we definitely know that white is possible, as there was one in the background in one of the video reviews or interviews (can't remember which).

I’m disappointed that orange isn’t an option on the first edition.

White for me too but since that isn't an option, then the Blue. Though the Red looks sick on the Emira Cup concept I saw.

I really wish they had a burgundy or purple, and definitely an orange, but these are the launch colors so I will go with the green.
