This one however, is the best ever.

WTF... how can you say the top ones are crap but the last one is good?

They're both the worst fucking colours on ANYTHING I have EVER seen... the fact that it's a beloved Lotus just twists the knife and rubs some salt in to the wound. :/

Fucking piece of shit Chameleon or whatever the hell it is paint...

the last one is actually Flat Black.. with color reflecting from some light source. not the same car.

isn't that chameleon shit like $1,000 a pint? i heard it was really expensive. Seems excessively expensive for something that when applied makes everything look shitty.

Flat black FTW. thumbs_up.gif

Agreed - I want to see a flat black Lambo!

Only TVR's can get away with using Chameleon and looking cool.

Flat black always looks cool in photos and video, but in real life, it somehow just doesn't cut it. I always thought it'd be a good idea, but I've never really seen it work. I'll stick to gloss black please.

omfg.. the amount of flakes in that paint job is disgusting tongue_crossed-eyes.gif

although, flat black elises are hot

The flat black is Serebo1's car on elisetalk.com. He's done a ton of mods.

Changed all the plastic slats to grills, added rear wing and front splitter, black badges, new wheels, smoked headlights, and just recently changed his seats to a custom black + kryton green trim design and an aclantara dash.

I'd love to take a look at Specialty Car Craft in socal and see what they can do.

Are these the PEARL colours?

Anyway flat black lambo have, the Gallardo Nera. Well, 30% flat black.

The flat black is a 100% custom one-off job by SCC.

No, pearl doesn't shift colors, pearl lightens.

LOL! laugh.gif

flat black just looks so, unfinished.

that chameleon stuff is just gross. it probably is expensive but not $1000 / pint expensive, I've seen it on too many crappy cars for it to cost that much.

Tow hook more than likely.

Chrome Orange is actually the most popular colour, and looks amazing in person. In other words, you're the stupid.

Sorry, I, personally do not find orange attractive on a car. If my personal opinion is stupid to you, so be it. In other words, I don't care what's popular.

That Elise is too much for me. Even this one that I saw last year is



FWIW, I thought Chrome Orange might be pretty cool. When I actually saw it, more times than not it looked kind of muddy and dull. Anyway, it's far more common than Krypton Green dance.gif

It must say Speedy, your color choice is superb. It just looks so damn good/unique.
