    I don’t want a black car. They only look good once a year if you drive them. The day they get detailed.

      Agreed. Black is for show cars only.

        Grey or white. Maybe a metallic?

          For a darker blue check out Tanzanite Blue Metallic, its a bit darker than interlagos and has a ton of metallic in it, looks great in the sun.

              Yeah. Y'know, that white render with those wheels is looking pretty crispy to me now. With red seats? Mmmm...

              Are we talking total color change so all this work has to come off again?

                Total color change. The vert I used for the chassis donor was white. Maybe I’ll just use that color. My 855 was pearl white (I think a Toyota color actually), but tri-coat paint is always tough to match, so I’m thinking of staying away from that.

                Mostly just tired of the constant comparison/mistaken for the Vöx Amazon. They do look really similar, so I don’t blame anyone, but if I’m gonna have to repaint the whole thing, might as well give it a color not already associated with another car.

                  Yeah, I can understand that. And the show car boys are overly impressed with the overdone crazy race car interior, and they'll be comparing that to yours every time.

                    My donor was Alpinweiss. Maybe I should just stick with that. Call it done.

                        White cars are clean cars, it would tie everything else in nicely as well.

                            If you are going to go with alpine white consider the later version, Alpine White 3.

                                At first I saw everyone in here talking about white and thought to myself "nooo, white would be so boring" - then I saw the renderings and instantly changed my mind. White would suit it well.

                                Still gonna go out on a limb here though...
