Over the past year or so there have been many renders shared of Emira decal designs / stripes and colour combinations, often created in Photoshop or even with 3D rendering software. I might have even mocked up and shared one or two myself!

I'm now seriously considering what decals and designs to add to my Emira... anything from centre stripes over the hood/roof/tailgate through to a lower stripe on the door contour just above the lower black pack. I want something that looks tasteful yet sporty.

Does anyone have any design ideas regarding decals you plan to add to your Emira once it arrives?

Thank you for posting this, Im also really interested on decal ideas. I posted on it a few months back but I don’t recall any follow up.

Small, but I am planning to add the Emira logo under the LOTUS on rear.

And maybe adding some accent stripes as PB racing does.

When I wrap it in white in the future, leave the back from around the rear wheel in the original colour. (currently no image)

Considering a pinstripe on the lower edge of the black part under the doors, maybe extend to front lip and rear diffusers. Silver to match the wheels? Oh wait, I specced black wheels... yellow to match the center caps?

This one has been my plan for a while but I may just leave it plain instead. We’ll see when (if) the car ever arrives. BTW the link in my signature should still work for people who want to play with stripes and colors on a PC.

There's a good chance I'll add this lettering on the side, and black out the inside of the wheels like this, but I'm going to wait until I actually see the car and spend some time with it before deciding what to do if anything. I know from the many hours I spent working with the 3D model, that this car looks so good as-is, any added graphics are going to have to be done with extreme thought and care, otherwise you'll just clown up the car.

It's not just a car body, it's a true sculpture.

I will probably add a small v6 decal behind the front wheel

Totally agree that any decals or stripes added need to be tasteful and not over the top. Just a bit of icing sugar added and no more...

The Emira design is already so classy that its easy to make it look cheap or tacky with bad decals. Which is exactly why I asked for everyone's design ideas on what might work. I know I want to do something tasteful with decals, but not quite sure what to do yet!

I love this. I'd be tempted to do it, except apparently we're both in Washington, and a car with this graphic should not risk ever running into a copy on the road!
