Do you think Ice Grey would work w Hethel Yellow/BP? i know black would go best but just dont want another black interior (Southern Cal). From pics the Ice Grey looks whitish. What do you think?

I think it will work, but you will probably need Silver wheels or Silver calipers to link the outside to the inside for better cohesion.

Currently relaxing by the pool near Hethel before our factory tour in the morning to finally decide which colour to go for. I’m still quite undecided between DV, Magma & my first love (Hethel Yellow with tan interior). This latest batch of photos from Lotus is the first time I’ve seen yellow & tan together (sort of) & I’m feeling happy (although that might be the chlorine)

Good luck! I am sticking to yellow but was much seduced by magma painted cars (DV was my second choice before factory visit..)

Agreed. My wife has said at various points “Magma looks nice”, “Green is classy and classic Lotus” and “Nimbus is a cool colour”. I tell her the spec is locked in on Hethel and can’t be changed.

I’ve been saying that since last September…. :)

I am no designer but I think HY with black alcantara w/ yellow stitching goes well together. Wonder why Lotus' designers say that spec is "Not Recommended".

What do you guys think?

maybe a slightly different yellow ? I am still going for that combination as I have yellow stitch in my Exige (saffron yellow) which goes really well

The Lotus design advice is to use a contrast colour for the stitching (and calipers) and not to try and match the body colour. But go with what you like.

my spec from day 1 has been HY w/ black pack, silver calipers, black wheels, black alcantara w/ yellow stitching interior.

Now I am thinking I should do gray stitching instead to match the calipers but then the cabin is gonna be boring. Decisions decisions..


On second thought, there is enough silver in the cabin to tie in with the calipers.
