Even when ceramic coated?

In my experience yes.

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!

What’s the pack or option when the roof is black in contrast?

That’s commonly known as the ‘Sports Racer’ look. 

Roof, front bumper, lower sills, wing mirrors all in black.

The "black bits" were brought in as a special edition Evora, the Sports Racer. It was optioned with all the "packs" (tech, sport etc) and the Premium Sport seat trims (leather, carbon leather weave, contract piping) and sold "cheaper" than buying a standard Evora and fully loading all the options (Lotus did something similar with the 400 called the Hethel Edition). It came with the black painted roof, lower sills, wing mirrors etc.

It was a great value package at the time and available on NA and S models.

Congrats to @Welshwiseguy car looks great! 

I was never that bothered about red callipers before but now I'm seeing them in the photos above I wish I had some now, they look goooood!  

Although my car is burnt orange so not sure if it would clash or look good?

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Where did you find that beauty? Pretty sure I didn't see her crop up in the classifieds! Also, is it an S Sports Racer with a venom red interior? Looks like it might be.

Found it on Autotrader privately. Previous owner (before this seller) was a forum member and I had a great chat to him about the car. 
 

I’ve not driven it yet so looking forward to a spin but lockdown and rain/snow may put the blockers on that for a while. 
 

It’s low on fuel so may fuel it on Thursday and tuck it up for a few months then.
