Alternate configurator renders of the other 4 FE colors

Good work!  It's really hard to represent the colours and paint finish in a render.  I've seen the samples indoors under artificial light and outdoors on a sunny day.  I think the metallic colours  need more fleck/pop.  Magma is a bit darker on the samples and Hethel is brighter.

Yep, I'd change my mind and get this green for sure.  Agh.. if only Lotus can get one made this month we can visit.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

Very nicely done and that Verdant does look rather epic :D

Even Hethel yellow looks more realistic in these new renders - if it's that shiny, I'm sticking with it, even without any metallic flake!

Well, that's as good a reference as any.  I think verdant may be a colour that works best in places like Australia, Florida and California where the default is lots of sun.  It seems to flop to black as soon as it's out of direct light.  Eg, this video:

It will look awesome. Don;t  worry about non-metallic. It might be that it is the most preferred colour of all when all is said and done. If you are happy with it go for it.

Looks great there but in the Empire video below the post it looks super dark as initially believed.

Bloody nightmare really.  A lot of us, judging by the first colour poll, wanted the green. Lotus.. please make it Motorsport Green.

That looks spot on to me - with those lighting conditions.  Great color for accentuating the curves.

It is one of my pics. Only seeing the green in real life, and it looks the bomb, might change that.

Brilliant.  Finally a render that is close to showing the metallic variation of this.  Great work.

Great work @Eagle7!!! I think you've nailed nimbus and verdant! The magma renders look great too but can't decide if they're realistic...such a hard colour to judge, and that's after seeing the samples and speed forms in person...twice 😂 I'm surprised how well magma with yellow calipers works, it's not a combination I would have ever thought of.

Any chance of a nimbus with black pack, black wheels, red calipers and red interior??

Magma has a wild range of colors and shades from what I've seen in photos of the samples, so it's been a challenge to come up with something that looks and feels right.  That's the color I'm not entirely satisfied with yet, but I'll keep tweaking it until I get it right.

Apparently I've reach the limit of the size of files I can post, so I can only post that one image above.
