The Hethel Yellow car (the same one as at Goodwood, I believe - LHD V6 manual) at the Royal Norfolk Show today to support the launch of the new Norwich City 2022/23 kit - main kit sponsorship has been renewed for another year....

Fab, and yes the same car as Goodwood.

I really like what NCFC did to use the kit launch to highlight mental health and suicide prevention.

The more I see this car in HY the more I like it and I’m not a yellow-car guy. This is just flat out gorgeous and has me re-thinking my original spec which likely would have been DV if I, in fact, did have the good fortune to get called for a First Edition. I didn’t…. So there’s that.

That slim line of yellow looking out of the windscreen to those two peaks of yellow over the wheels

I don't like your camera's Yellow :-( Most pictures I've seen show it deeper, less pale. Would you agree with this assessment, or do you feel these are representative?

I’m happy that mine at the Royal Norfolk Show above are accurate, and they don’t look far off from Tom’s to my eyes / screen either…..

I think mine are pretty accurate to the scene on the day - the car was partly under a show canopy and the sky was bright but cloudy. I think JimH's are realistic too.

Have you got an example of a picture where you think it looks darker?

Here are the Lotus Cars pictures from Goodwood for comparison:

Stunning colour but I’m not a fan of the black pack at all. It makes the car look disjointed and stubbie in my opinion.

I'm actually pretty OCD and nit-picky, but some of the stuff on here is ridiculous, even for me.

I learned a long, long time ago - there's no such thing as a perfect car.

I've ridden in a Ferrari F40 once, (my childhood dream car), and the inside has exposed glue bits and misaligned panels. On the outside, there are tons of panel gaps everywhere. Do I care? Not really. Because it's a freaking F40.

I think what people want and expect these days are Lexus level build quality on all new performance cars, but with the specific performance, handling, and looks of exotic brands.

That's a tall order.
Oh so a Porsche…….oh wait you said looks. Nevermind.

Right from the announcement of the colours, I had Hethel yellow as my first choice along with the Black packs, & Black gloss alloys and this stayed the same until some of the press car pictures came out around about April time. One of the photos below photos rocked my thoughts on the yellow and I was planning on changing to my 2nd choice of Blue which is lovely and at least I have seen it in real life at the shows. I hadn't changed my order at this time because I have ordered the I4, so I'm awaiting to se a yellow car in the flesh hopefully before I decide, but I had given up on the Yellow.
That was until I watched the Carfection video last night and fell back in love with hethel Yellow.
It's so difficult to judge without seeing it in the flesh due to the light changes etc.
Anybody else had similar thoughts?

This is not a Lotus defined issue, I have had the same issue choosing my daily from the website colours.
When I visited the dealers to see the various colours on the cars, I chose a completely different colour to what I had intended from the online configurator.
Colours are so hard to choose from website configurators and to be fair, Lotus has tried their best and are leagues above others.

For me the Carfection video confirmed I'm still very happy with my yellow order. I also got to see it at Goodwood , although at first glance I wasn't completely blown away it was a bit more 'mustardy' than I think I expected. The more I went back to the Lotus stand the more I liked it, it's kind of an 'interesting yellow' if that makes any sense. I don't think you'll be disappointed/swayed if you see it next to the blue - definitely a personal thing though.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your feelings when you physically saw it. I'm sure I will like it when I see it🤞

Schmee ordered a Hethel Yellow with Silver wheels and black pack. That might look very interesting actually!

Has anyone seen the forged silver wheels on a recent car yet? The Matt Windle ‘delivery delay’ video had the first glimpse of them on Nimbus but other than that they have been elusive.
