You know when you are obsessed with the Emira when...

Every red car I see on the street or parked up, or on TV, I say to myself:

"AH, I wonder if that what is the Magma Red Emira looks like" and even consider taking a picture.

I do this daily. 🤪

Yeah, I see a lot of different cars in something similar. Sometimes it annoys me :)

Then I remind myself that, in the shape of the Emira, it is going to blow our socks off.

Yellows, pastel blues and dark greens are rarer so don't both with them.

Having held the sample in outside light I can tell you it is very, very, close to Fire Red. Stop your wandering and look at Fire Red Lotus and you will be 98% there. It has a very similar, if not the same, metallic flake in it.

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

Ha, I think I was the first person to actually show the disc against a Fire Red Evora but it doesn't stop me wondering about red cars. What I have not seen is a Fire Red Lotus moving and how it changes.

I have accepted it will be dark - I already have plans to, er, lift it somewhat.

Ha, well, how spooky. 

My father has just turned up in a metallic red Citroen courtesy car whilst he awaits for a seatbelt part to be fitted to his new Abarth, topass its MOT. (he liked mine so much, he bought his own - he has waited 3 weeks for the part to come in!)

 

You can guess my first thought. :)

I thought Magma Red had more of a silver flake through it while Fire Red as we know has a more gold fleck though it. Regardless an Emira in Magma Red will be a great choice!😎👏🏻👏🏻

When I held the sample outside @stephenwhyte I am sure the flake i saw was gold :)  But then I am getting old and my eye balls aren't like they were....

I was told at Goodwood the Magma Red is a three layer paint (same approach Mazda uses for Soul Red). Not sure Fire Red is.  
If you look at the photos of the production line in this weeks Autocar, there are white bodies and some red ones that look brighter than than the reds we have seen so far (to my aging eyeballs at least).

You're right, the cars on the production line in the article aren't First Edition colours.

The Magma Red sample had a gold fleck:

Yeah, have always loved that Mazda red.

I suspect the Emira red will feel warmer, classier, richer.

In the flesh I have every confidence it will be sensational.

I am far more worried about coming across a Verdant Green Emira later on and feeling regret I didn't get it!

Driving down the motorway i`m constantly chatting with the wife and daughter about colours and what they think on other cars :)

Still going for the blue at the moment as i we all think other cars will see us. Don`t trust a lot of other people with a grey car they won`t be able to see easily!!

Oh yeah, my missus had enough of my spontaneous outburts in the car when were out.

She calls it Car Tourette's.

I feel compelled to shout out things like:

"Ferrari"

"Lamborghini"

"Lotus"

"That's like the Emira red"

"Motorbike"

Occasionally, if I am really being triggered then I might come out with lesser objects such as:

"Poirsche"

I remember this old family friend taking us to the Silverstone Classic. “Oh look there’s a TR” he said, as we drove along the A43. My brother and I looked across expecting to see a Triumph sports car, only to realise that he meant a Testa Rossa. Classic British understatement.

Ha,. I saw one yesterday! AT GVE in Uxbridge. Love it and the salesman preferred over a lot of the other exotics there.  It was actually a 512 TR.

Also there was an Enzo signed by Schumacher in the cockpit and a snip at £2mil. I even sat in it. Awesome, awesome car.

I did the same - maybe we both see what we want to see!😂😉

I was in seeing Laura at Parks yesterday before she leaves for pastures new and she was saying that they are expecting the definitive paint samples soon as the 6 samples were all maybe a bit on the dark side. (Don't shoot the messenger😇). Having missed the show car's tour that was the first time I'd actually seen the colours for real and not on line.  Just confirmed I'm glad I didn't go for a LE based purely on the colour choice.  

My mind is made up and I'm not changing that, although ................ maybe if that red was a bit lighter then............😆. No!  My mind is made up. I think 🤔

But I'm also concerned that it will just be too dark to tell it is even green at all! If it was Racing Green I would already know what I wanted!

What does the Verdant Green look like in bright sunlight? Still really dark? It does look nice on the configurator.
