Hello all, I am wondering how many different interior / exterior color combinations we have seen roll off the line from Lotus?   I have a Monaco White exterior with Magnolia interior.    Please post your color combination with photos!  

Cheers!

Magnolia leather & carpets, but I changed the carpet to blue!   

One of the last Esprit....  

No idea what the colours are actually called, but the trim code is XX15. Carpet looks like a mushroom colour, the rest is grey leather, with a pale grey headlining etc. The paint code is B21.

Lotus would paint cars to a customer's preference. So, there are many "one-off"s.

 

In '88 - '90 there was also an option of having the sills and valences painted gray (or not). (TWO colors of gray!)

 

My car is Claret Burgundy, one of eight in North America that year. There is a '90 nearby in the same exterior color...a 'special'.   My car has the gray sills.

 

'88s got the two-tone interior.

I think my car must have been done at the same time as Atwell's, as it's a mirror image two-tone from the same year, also with the grey sill. 

Magnolia interior, Atlantic Green A61 exterior, this pic shows it all but the carpets are new.

Very nice photos gentlemen!   I have to say that I like Steve's blue and Ian's the most, with Ian's green and grey being the most interesting I have seen in quite some time.  Attached is an older 89 Esprit SE that I had in Monaco White/white leather!

cheers!

Mine is steel blue A59 with Grey Leather, with a two tone Grey and black Dash. I think it came from the factory with tweed trim.

i think this is my car at the factory. mine is number 52 built Dec 1987 and its a rare colour. I think this photo is dated 87

Hi gents, I'm starting to turn my attention to doing my interior, and would like to restore to factory spec.

According to Andy Graham from Lotus my car originally had "Raven leather with a dark grey contrast band with slate grey nylon carpet and grey head liner".

Does anyone have this interior combo? If so I'd love to see some pictures.

This is what the interior looks like currently:
