  • Elkhart Lake Blue w red interior

    Has anyone here done that color combo or seen it in person? If so, how do you like that combo? I have been set on ELB w the two tone blue interior but accelerate red w red calipers intrigues me. Which red caliper color would go best with the red interior color?

    If anyone has this combo I would love to see some photos. As of now I am doing 3LT due to two tone blue but could go 2LT w the red interior.

      I personally like it but some will negatively call it a Superman car.

        Who doesn't like Superman? 😆

        The safe pick for me is to go w the two tone blue. I had a Blue Third that had two tone blue/black interior and it looked great. I don't like paying that color override fee either!!

          The tu-tone blue color is the Rapid Blue color which to me is a slightly different shade of blue than ELB. Perhaps the darker red in tu-tone with the matching calibers might be a great choice too.

            Agreed, two-tone blue with Rapid. I like red with ELB, really should not be a color override.

              I'd go two tone natrural/black. Just me. My own Maclamborarri has the Sky Cool Gray. They're really light though and may need extra care. I do agree with John, the red could be characterized as a Superman car. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

                  Mine should be built in 1-2 months. ELB with adrenaline red interior and bright red calipers. I think it will look awesome.

ID:	189908 Works for me .... and if you are going for the Superman thing, don’t forget the yellow calipers! Also, don't forget that for 2021 you have an option of a red full length stripe. I don't know exactly WHAT color of red, but there have been some GM released teaser photos posted here on MECF.

                        My original order was ELB with Red Interior. I was then yes no to Red inside while my build progressed to the level that I had to lock it down, but by then the HTC came into play and I swapped over to it. At that time I pulled the Red Interior and went with all Black Int.
                        Tough decision but some of drivers to change were that I could not find a Blue/Red car to see (even C7) in person. Next was the Color override $600 bucks ****ed me off.
                        To those who have ordered the Blue/Red, good for you. I hope to get to see your car in person some day so I know what I missed out on.

                          That $600 override really, really bugs me.....to the point I may end up have triple blue
