Should be interlagos blue since that's the only blue offered so far.

Why do you think so many have the tow hooks in place in the back bumper. Do they tie them down for transit?

Looks like the production 18inch wheels are going to be the dark, diamond-black type finish. I wonder how much extra the 19s will be in the U.S.?

Hey xraymd, what's stuck in that chest? (e.r. doc here)

I think it's just the protective coating which makes them all look like that

It's called cosmoline, used to protect the paint during transport.

Thanks for these pics - I find them very persuasive re. the 18"/19" decision - think I will change my order to 19" ASAP...

The blue cars appear to be RHD - can we assume they are destined for the UK? If so, for what purpose i.e. are they based on actual customer orders?
