I have a Bertone X1/9 that is two tone silver and dark gray metallic with a red interior and I love the look. I think shadow gray with red will look awesome! A classic combination and a sporty vibe. The ice gray combo would be equally awesome, but with a more austere sophisticated vibe. You can’t go wrong. I would pair with silver wheels, but just my bias.
Eeee that takes me back I had a Fiat X19 circa 35 years ago loved it it was red with the black roof

Yes the good wood and shmee driving the car is really putting me off the shadow grey, certainly lack lustre is how I would also sum it up and the photo of jenson in the car the shape didn’t look great at all it looked very short from the side photo.
Shadow Grey looks good in real life, the metallic is more visible and has a nice tone. It doesn't photograph well, or at least it seems very "chameleon" and picks up colours from the surroundings which can make it look darker or have a colour wash which in real life isn't there. Not many people have chosen it, so it does have a bit of exclusivity if that's a factor.

I'm in the shadow crowd and think it will look wonderful. So glad that not many people are selecting it!

A bit like Dark Verdant, its a bit difficult to get a good photo of Shadow Grey. You either get lots of reflection due to the shine which hides everything, or it picks up the surroundings and changes hue.

I've found a photo that shows a bit of Shadow's blue fleck shining through around the wheel arch and air intake that was taken during the Japan tour earlier this year. Unfortunately I don't have the source anymore - it was posted on instagram.

A new set of quite good quality photos of the Shadow Grey dynamic prototype from Singapore:


Even though the Emira price in Singapore is eye watering, there is already a 2 year waiting list!

And yet the people who've seen it in the US were critical of the colour but I like it but haven't seen it in the flesh.

Probably because most of us saw it indoor with poor lighting, where it's mostly a dark metallic grey. Indoor and from distance, the gloss black trim blended with the dark grey body color. Interior was all black with black leather. It wasn't the best spec for showing off a fancy sports car.

I did get a chance to see Shadow Grey outdoor and it's a nice color that's not just "another grey". The blue fleck comes out under sunlight and gives it some character. If you want to fly somewhat under the radar, this is a good color choice.

Yeah... I do agree Shadow with the standard solid black leather interior was kind of drab. IMHO needs a pop contrast interior color... I selected Tan, but ice Silver or Red would both suit the color perfectly as well!! 👍🏼

This thread needed some love. Here is another shadow grey…
Wish the suspension looked like this.
Kind of ironic... when we noticed the ride height of the shadow grey vs. the debut Seneca blue car... and many complained of the difference. Now we are hoping for the shadow grey roadshow stance 🤦🏻‍♂️

There are white LEDs shining on the car which is bringing out the blue flecks in the grey.
