Nobody knows that - not even Lotus.

If the Blue or others are THAT popular, why wouldn't they bring them back?

I'd like to think so though. Make them more special in the long run.

To be fair, there are loads of other shades of these colours to offer so maybe they will ne unique to FE.

I suspect it will be the colour that, when you spot it on the road, will make you gasp the most.

I don’t agree, I think it’s a generic silver metallic. It’s very nice but it’s not First Edition special or a nod to a previous Lotus colour like Storm Titanium.  I think blue, yellow and red will be the head-turners.

The Launch Edition Evora had 20 colours.

Lotus have limited it to 6 for the Emira to make build and QA easier but have missed an opportunity in my opinion.

It is not the colour - per se. It is the impact the lighter colour has on the curves on the Emira specifically and how it truly shines relative to the others.

You heard it here first 😁  It will be remarlable with black/black.

Will I get it?  No.

They are not quit the same as the ones on the configurator.

Another weird bit of info - I was told there will only be V-Spokes available on the FE despite the one shown on the current configurator and demo cars.  

Yep, me neither...

On another note and for those that haven’t seen the car yet. This wheel is matt

Thank you for that, i forgot to get a close up on my viewing. I sent my configurator today and had a last minute change to the diamond cut over black for this reason. The black alloys look matt on the configurator and i had been ignoring the name actually saying “gloss black” but after seeing the paint samples i’m not as trusting on the configurator and i’ve played it safe knowing i’ve seen those diamond ones. There is no way they don’t have samples of the three alloys and i know for fact they a green painted shell at Hethel now, if they could leak a picture it would help us all tremendously, that is my only frustration about this, everything else i’m chilled about and understanding.

That's right, only 3 wheel options on the FE.  The old version of the configurator (pre pricing) had more but those have been dropped for the First Edition.  It's apparently about streamlining build and stock.

Too dark in normal light - fabulous in the sun!  A great car for LA 😃

Ah yeah, very envious. 😄

Green with yellow highlights - perfect.

A different perspective with the samples in convex might help…

Wow that's changes the look of the colours massively.   They all look better somehow in Convex.  I off to Bell and Colville this evening so looking forward to seeing these colours in the flesh.  So I hope seeing the car for the first time and the colours will help me imagine what the car will look like.  Currently I thinking the red or Yellow with the black pack.

All the Best

I seem to remember they are proving and bedding in an entirely new painting process (for Louts). you don't want to be playing with a load of colours until you've got your sh!t sorted!

Agree though, more colours would be nice...

Here's my attempt from Tuesday...

The top one is the black leather, there was no sample of the ice. There's a floor to ceiling window about 2ft to the right of this photo so plenty of light coming in.

Thanks.

Not wow'd by any of the leather. Might have to opt for the alcantara instead.

What was your thinking re material choice for the interior?

I had the same impression.

I was after leather.

I took one look in that drawer and changed my mind.

Alcanrara and stitching for me.

I was going for leather but after seeing the samples and show car interior again I’m seriously considering the alcantara.

The dash and doors are still mainly leather top and bottom but with alcantara sections in the middle.

The seats have leather bolsters and a centre strip, rest is alcantara.

It looks very smart.
