Here's a couple of Supernova I had knocking around from Rybrook in Birmingham. You have to get up close and or daylight to see full effect of the fleck. It's lovely, but subtle.


Slightly dodgy colour balance on the interior ones

BrotherHarry,
Have you seen the Ice Silver (or any other silvers) in person? If so, how does Supernova compare? Any personal preference?

Thank you for posting these colors. Now I just have to make up my mind, bit leaning toward either supernova silver or graphite grey. Wish I could see the graphite grey in the day light.

I've seen Standard and Supernova in person. Because of the fleck, Supernova holds more depth and takes/plays with light better IMHO.

Gallardo62 has an Ice Silver and there's a bunch of images in this thread

jlLMP4 has a Titanium and there's some good daylight images in this thread


Here's another few of graphite grey in daylight





Think all the greys/silvers are good 'safe' choices - think saville row suit; sober exterior, quiet money/confidence. Lighter colours provide better contrast against the vents, openings and glasshouse and show off the lines better. If you can, go for a 'special' or ideally an 'elite' version to give some depth to the finish and lift it.

Of course neither give as much pow and sheer justice as say, orange;)

The TS and GG are definitely my two top choices. And, although they look stunning in gloss I think both would look stellar in a matte finish.

I narrowed it down to a choice between TS with stealth wheels or GG with silver wheels and then ultimately went for the GG. Whichever you choose, I think you'll be very happy.

When I first saw the TS I wrongly assumed it was GG, it is certainly darker than you'd expect from most silvers.

Agreed. I also mistook TS for GG. I think I am leaning more toward GG (spyder) with silver super light weight forged wheels and calipers. Although steal with the diamond cut would look very nice too.
