If you want to see Nimbus grey go to the Harry's Garage video around 11:55 mark, not super easy to get a good overall look but the mockup interior car is NG.
Confirmed by Lotus

I seriously doubt it. Nimbus has a more gold/bronze hue to it.
i guess like all colours it depends on the lighting. I have a Jerez Black M3, in some lights it looks dark blue due to the flecks of dark blue in it - but mostly it looks black.

Well, the guy from Lotus hethel customer services said it was
Fair enough, I'm not doubting that. Just not convinced that what was advised by Lotus is accurate! Referencing a third party video rather than a photo of their own making is always a bit suspicious. :)

If they have a car/mule/model in Nimbus then why on earth don't they officially share their own photos of it !

In the same Harry’s Garage video near the end when he specs his car, he asks Russell Carr if they have a Nimbus car on site, he replies he hadn’t seen one yet.. so I doubt the earlier car mentioned was indeed Nimbus.

exactly this - they have access to facebook and instagram and could easily upload photos of production ready colours on cars but they havent done this which infers apart from blue and shadow grey they dont have photos of the other colours on cars.

I think the car designer didn't want to be drawn on favourite colours as that might well skew orders to that colour and I suspect from a production perspective they would rather have an even number of orders in each colour.

I have changed my mind between every single colour other than shadow black. I am currently resolved on Nimbus with red interior and red callipers and full black pack.

I keep going back to this build... over and over, so it's a sure sign for me... haha
I saw a 997 targa s in silver with red leather interior and dashboard it looked well , I prefer black interior but it did look a classic combination. I imagine the. Emira will be the same.

I think that will look great.

Same but I've gone with an ice grey interior. If it's was a daily I'd go for tan.
