hello au-yt. The painting was realized at the factory in heltel at my request. Of course, the 'extra' cost a little bit, just like the golden powder coating of the rims. what i will do soon is the installation of a power increase by the fa. komo-tec, where I bought the GT 430, and who also realized the painting in connection with the factory in heltel.

with white can be done a lot.
if you are looking for other color scheme.
lotus launched the lotus elan sprint in the 70s with many different color combinations.
Just use google and enter lotus elan sprint and you will see very nice color combinations that have the tradition. Of course, only the red gold white paint is a reminder of formula 1 times.

Great selection of ELAN Sprint liveries. This was my Sprint.

Do you have any 3/4 rear pictures I would like to see how they did the rear of the car please

@Evora 400 phwoah. Love a sprint colour scheme, although I prefer blue personally. 

Having done the same on my V6, I know how much that would have cost you. I wouldn't do it again actually, the white is a massive PITA to clean if you ever take the car on track. But it doesn't half look great on a 430, superb!

@scotty435 I had a blue S2 Exige Sprint as well before the V6.  @jonnyboy sold it a few weeks ago (4.5 years after I'd moved it on admittedly).

That Sir, is a lovely car.


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

@scotty435 I never like telling anyone that they are wrong, but in this case I'll make an exception - blue, every time. 😉

@scotty435 pass, I bought mine second hand.

Picture of my old car with the new one - not a great one admittedly - the day before Aimee changed the wheels over to the correct ones. . 

You're still wrong!

Was looking for info regarding the blue color on the GT430s.  I know there is an Essex blue but I have also seen reference to a “metallic blue”; don’t know if that is Essex or something else.  I have looked globally at online marketplaces and found some that were painted an Elise metallic blue that looks lighter than Essex.  Specifically I’m looking for confirmed pics of Essex vs any other metallic blue color Lotus offered on the 430.

 

Thanks in advance!

Essex Blue should be a shade or two darker than Lotus Metallic Blue which I believe used to be known a Persian Blue at one point. If it isn’t exactly the same as Persian Blue it’s very similar. Both are stunning colours for any Lotus. The original Essex Blue from the 80’s is even better to my eye but is no longer possible to reproduce exactly with water based paints.

My car is Essex blue and a mate has a 430 in the same colour. Metallic blue is different. Persian blue is utterly lovely but hasn't been a standard lotus colour for a while now. My S2 and S3 exiges were in a Persian blue sprint scheme.

Posted this last year @TpupNomad

Here's my sprint V6, the blue is persian - it is more metallic and a bit deeper than Essex I think, it changes colour more depending on light/dirt

Thanks.  I had a Persian blue Exige and a blue metallic S2 Esprit back in the day...  :)

This was very helpful, thank you and happy new year!
