Would have loved to see more pics. Thought white w red leather would be the bomb. Seriously thought about it but ended up placing order for Nimbus w red leather. Im sure if I see one in real life i will be seriously torn. White rocks

Still have no idea how we haven’t seen one actual picture of the car in white. Surely some of these have rolled off the line and are being driven by owners by now.

Completely agree. This is the only thing ive found so far. Someone uploaded this and if you look 3 cars down on the left side you can see the edge of what I think is a mist white emira

As rumors swirl about 2.0 cars being included in the first round of cars to the US, I'm hoping someone might nab the first mist white picture - even if not their own - when they go to visit the Lotus showroom. You can be internet famous (just go with it) and do a solid for all of us looking for our first glimpse! :sneaky:(y)

Welp. I have to submit my config next week and still haven’t seen a mist white. Guess I’ll go with nimbus!?

I'm pretty sure that the prototype used in that magazine test was a plain gloss white purely for testing purposes, I don't think it was painted in any of the final colors.

A subtle color like Mist White can't be evaluated in photographs. You will need to see the actual paint in person in order to make up your own mind. Drive to the dealer to look at their paint sample if you're able.

My final decision came down to DV and Mist. I really love the Matte White finish on the Maserati MC20 launch car. I was hoping Mist White was close to that. I even considered a clear matte PPF to convert Mist White into that Matte White finish. However, I kept with the DV in the end. Mist White allows you to do a lot more wheels for a winter setup IMO.

I’m still hoping to see a picture of a mist white Emira before locking in my final decision.

Ironically, I’m either going Ferrari wannabe with vivid red and brown leather. Or totally fly under the radar with mist white and alcantara red stitching. This car honestly looks great in so many different color combos.

I'm starting to think the reason we haven't seen it, is that I am the only person to lock it in and my car isn't built yet. 😂 😂😭😭😮‍💨😮‍💨

officially submited my spec, went for nimbus. I did get a chance to view mist white swatch in person and it's most definitely a more warm white (not a crisp white). There's a white chevy suv of some sort in the background. The attached photo is very true to what the color looks like in person. I think without any comparison white next to it, you probably won't notice the warmth of it much

Almost like a cream color instead of a pure white. But why though? This feels like an easy thing to get right.

Pure white is kind of stark, though. The slightly warm color makes it look more sophisticated. I like it!

Agreed. I'd actually argue Chevy's white looks too "panel van" white on most of their vehicles.

Sophisticated is a good way to explain this. More Mercedes than Chevy.

Agreed. I currently have a white tesla model 3p and have had an e46 in the past and really like the bmw alpine white. I just really like crisp white cars. But like I said, I bet you wouldn't really notice the warmth of the mist white much as long as it's not sitting by another white car to compare it to. Still looking forward to seeing an emira in mist, i bet it'll look really good. I don't think there's any color that looks "bad" on the emira, aside from maybe zinc grey (in my opinion looks like primer)
