I've  had three British sports cars and two of them have been in green. People seem to like Motorsport Green or at least that's what they tell me as it  gets frequent compliments on its livery.

I've always fancied a green car, so when the Evora was announced I had a word with my local dealer ( then Frosts in Brighton ),  who told me if  I ordered a car in BRG they'd want double the deposit ie 20% on the basis that 'if you chance your mind I'll be stuck with it!'. That stuck with me and when I specced my next car and I took a swerve on a deep green, again resale was  a concern...  next time around I won't be so concerned, still my all time favourite colour for the right car.

I have two green classic sportcoupé 's. Somehow , I just like green on a sportscar.

First is the esprit S2.2 in the carlton's very dark empire green. I bought it this way....and kinda like it a lot.

The other one is my 1970 Opel GT in some nice VW corrado pearl green with BMW white stripes. This one I did spray in a self made paintboot in my garage. People thought I was nuts, but in the end it became beautiful. I did however use professional PPG automotive paints and with a lot of elbow grease, it was coloursanded and with a rotary polished in multiple stages to highgloss. Look also at the "OPEL GT" logo, airbrushed in the bottom of the doors and I let it sink deep in the green colour, by spraying a last thin coat of green over it, before finishing the doorpanels with 3 layers of clearcoat. No wrapping or stickers on this one. All details are  painted36274627861_1121e9fd6e_b.jpg

Yeah, I've had a sort of greeny brown (browny green?) car.
