Only one in Fire Red, as far as I know.

As with many colours, a dull day doesn't do it any favours.

Back on the road today and still running in. I also replaced the painted carbon spoiler with an OEM naked carbon spoiler. 

Oh go on then

At the Lotus 70th do, the only car that I could replace my Exige S2 with was the blue Cup 250 that was on display. Then followed the spec my car game and my spec was as follows: Colour - not

What colour interior pack did you go for, Fire Red, looks like it is? I’m toying between Essex Blue, with yellow interior pack and calipers, or Fire Red with unknown interior pack and calipers!

Yes, Fire Red interior, silver stitching to match silver wheels, silver aero uprights, silver decals. Didn't  bother with calipers.

I specifically wanted a 250 cup car in an unusual colour, and went to the factory to look at lots of cars that had come off the line. There was no Fire Red, so I was taking a bit of a punt in ordering it and paying a premium for the colour. I also wanted everything colour coded, that is no black engine cover, transom, service covers etc. As with many Lotus colours, when the sun is on it, it sparkles, but a dull day doesnt do it any favours. 

My short list included Liquid Yellow and Vivid Green, and I just felt there were lots in those colours. I have since seen an Exige in Motorsport (I think) Green, and at that point had the odd second thought about the Fire Red. 

I love it now

It’s a gorgeous colour and clearly unique, if it’s the only one! Thanks for the info, I might have to do a factory visit to check out the colours.

Thanks again, really appreciate the information.

Stunning!!!

What area's did you get PPF fitted to?  That looks soooo shiney, did you get it ceramic coated as well?

Have my order of a Fire Red 250 FE and can't wait.

At that stage Fire Red was an exclusive colour, it is now on the standard options, nevertheless a good choice Tony

It might have looked shiney then but that was under the bright lights at the PPF installer, where I had it over the whole of the front end, the rear aerofoil, along the sill beneath doors, in front of rear wheels, and a small strip on the roll bar cover. Ceramic coating not required.

You can do the ceramic coating yourself and it does actually help to keep the PPF clean too. I find the PPF untreated can be a bitch to really clean properly.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!
