What Colour is this Exige?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone confirm the clout of this exige. We think ardent red, but not sure. Thinking about going for an Elise 220 Cup in the colour combo.

There's a similar Elise Cup at Bristol advertised but that is formula red, more orange:

I'd say it's Ardent as well. I've seen it in person at Destination Nurburgring 10 last year and it looked mint.

 

However, Having also seen  Formula Red Elise S Cup in person there's not much in it, it looks just as stunning as that Exige.

We had a formula red cr on order but when we saw it compared to the ardent at the factory we swapped to chrome orange. Felt the formula was a bit orange in comparison.

We're off to DN in a couple of weeks, hope to see it there then?

Good chance you may do if it's a Swiss car that clearly likes the private trackdays there, judging from the photos.

I have seen this car at the Nurburgring.  On the back he had at that time a sticker "GT3" and next to that the number of GT3's he has beaten on the ring.  It's indeed ardent red, same colour as dixie v6's car on this forum.  The back is blacked out.  I like that.

Yes it's Ardent Red. I know because it's my V6 Cup. I love this color combination with the black details.

Of course it doesn't have any GT3 sticker on the back showing how many GT3's I've beaten with it. Even there have been a few...

Good stuff. Car looks awesome, best looking exige I have seen. Wondering if it is going to translate to the Elise Cup?

Are you going to be at the 'Ring next week?

Thanks! I love it.

I can guarantee you that it will. My girl friend has an Elise S MY13 in Ardent Red with Black details and it looks just great. One would think a Elise Cup would look even better due to the black Aero Package.

Unfortuantely I won't be at the Ring in April. Track is still "green" then...

I'll be there May 8th for a Trackday.

Here's another picture if the Elise

Ha. The Cup is for my wife. She finds the Exige a bit heavy. I think when the 400 cup arrives I may have to get it matching :)

Can I blame the green track for my lack of pace when I post some vids next week? Nice to have a few excuses in the back pocket ready. Hoping it will be a quiet day - my fist time driving there.

Driving the Ring the first time is excuse enough. Just take it easy.

Sorry - Circuit Days, we did Spa/Ring with them last year and have done a couple of their tours. Always well organised. Although I had car issues both days and did not even get a lap at the ring.

Will look that one up - think I am limited to UK organisers for my insurance.
