I'd like to see yellow and gold stripes on DV being green/black both could look cool
I’m thinking of doing something like this pic, but with yellow bordered by gold instead of light grey & LOTUS in yellow & gold where 69 is 😎🤟

Nah, too bright still. Nice color though!
I just emailed the Lotus driver academy to see if I could get them to take some photos of their DV car in sunlight. Fingers crossed...... Still can't believe Lotus haven't done a photo shoot with all colors.

They won't. No photos allowed at the Hethel factory or out on the track anymore. We're better off just waiting to see customer cars at this point. I posted a few DV shots on my IG account that's in my signature below, but most are in this thread already.

Yesterday, I emailed the driving academy email address someone here had provided. I plead my case and asked for some photos of their Dark Verdant car in true sunlight, and I got this prompt response:

"Good morning,

I hope you are keeping well.

This is definitely something we can do for you; I have asked my colleague Kai to take some photos of the Emira for you and send them across within the next week.

Enjoy your weekend and kindest regards,"

Fingers are crossed!

Lol.. I really hope they follow through on this for you, but a lot of us have been told similar since September 2021. "Factory photos of all colors will be published within a couple weeks." Literally every week or so for the last year.

But you've published that on here before you've got the photos. Now someone at Lotus will read it and intervene to stop them!

"We said we'd never publish photos of Dark Verdant, it's too hard to photograph - didn't you get the memo?"

Oh hey, Kai is the Lotus social media guy in charge of their popular TikTok account. Maybe it'll show up there.

I got sent this shot earlier, not the best pic I know but there is a very slight hint of green....
Look at that front arch gap though, a large cat could sleep in there😔

There is visible lens distortion making the arch gap worse. Also, there seem to be all kinds of pre-prod Emira’s out there with varying gap for some reason and this pic may not reflect the production version.

Thanks for sharing the pic though 🤓

DV is one of those colors that seems to be difficult for cameras, especially phone cameras to accurately capture. It must be the metallic flakes in the paint that cause the camera ai to adjust for brightness rather than color. In this photo, the car actually looks more like dark green, while other photos it looks like black with a slight green tint.
