why is it being assumed that it is Nimbus grey on a clearly production car?

I'm going to say that Lotus probably put considerable amount of time in getting the latest configurator as accurate as possible. The sample I have seen also looks like the configurator and not really like this image. Also this is clearly taken on a phone, likely set to automatic.. phones do all kinds of automatic nonsense, especially indoors, like brightening up shadows and making brighter objects (like a lovely silver) seem darker to balance out the shot. I have more faith in my eyes and the Configurator than this image... which isn't even confirmed to be Nimbus anyway..

I have also seen the sample in the flesh… looks more like the last two pics I posted above.

Yep the last 2 you posted is how i saw it too.. its basically silver with a touch of bronze / champagne.. looks very nice in person.. Im not worried at all I think it will look great.

And this is why Lotus just need to post or send us the god darn pictures of the actual colours! 🤪
I cant see this being a true representation of Nimbus. They can't have got the new configurator that badly wrong after not giving us pictures...
If it is then I just won't bother with the car at all, as this photo is my full spec bar the wheels. All the colours are a bit 'old man' bar Seneca and I wouldnt want the show car colour.
Anyway time will tell.
Me for now

As Tom has seen the actual colour and doesn't think it's right I'd say it's nothing to worry about

All I will say is color is very subjective... IMHO, photos don't always help. My Miami Blue Spyder for example was very difficult to capture even for professional photographers. So many variables involved.

On the FB group nimbus might be the same as pebble grey (Volvo owned by Geely)
