Well decision made! I drove the S IPS today and loved it! Deposit paid. Picking it up in a week!  #longestweekever

Oh my @Bravo73 that is a truly beautiful car.

My type116 would look stunning in that colour....

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Good work. 

BTW, Burnt Copper (or whatever it’s called!) in an SR stylee is one of my all-time favourite Evora colour combos:

Silverstone Lotus have had a similar car for sale for ages, is it a marmite colour? Probably down to the mileage? but for me I love the colour.

Ha ha! Good detective work Bravo. I have indeed got the one from Silverstone. It was on SOR with Silverstone but I actually met the owner elsewhere and purchased it privately. Lotus Silverstone have been fantastic though and are currently servicing the car before I pick it up on Thursday. 

I was already considering getting the roof wrapped for the sports racer look. Think I will have to let the bank balance recover slightly before I do it though, for me the colour is stunning in the metal (plastic?) But I can see it's not for everyone.

For the proper SR 'look', it's not just the roof. It is also the front splitter, wing mirrors and, probably most importantly, the 'under sills'. The wheels also need to be black and for the finishing touches, the badges and rear light rings also need to be black.

Wing mirrors are already black

Black mirrors were standard on Supercharged cars. Easy way to spot NA vs SC!

Don’t get wanting to make look like a sports racer, for me leave it like it came out the factory, not many my 12 Evora’s came out the factory without the black pack and that’s got to make it a bit different in a good way and for me it’s got the best wheel option diamond cut 19/20s. Looks great as it for me leave it OEM, the person that ordered the car for me ticked all the right boxes.

I decided to go with the black front splitter and sills in Phantom Black. I left the diffuser as standard, and as I went for a tri-stripe, the roof is body colour too. A few cars were adopting the SR look even before the first of them hit the showrooms. I finally got my car around the time the very first SR's came out. My interior is regular premium sport without the grey alcantara, so a fairly unique combo I imagine.

Yep, I’m all for individualising.  I Ended up doing just the splitter and sills in matt black. Left the mirrors and roof red. I would love an S diffuser though - parking sensors are much neater.

I like that colour never seen it 

for your info Silverstone use a Signs Uk who are based on Hinckley to carry out any of their wrapping work.

i had my roof and front splitter and side sills wrapped and the guys at this place were really good there’s a picture on a thread somewhere on here
