Arrow RX-8 verde itaca pearl

here are a few pictures of my rx-8 going from velocity red to verde itaca pearl

the verde itaca pearl is originally used by the lamborghini murcielago

most rx-8 owners in my hometown have got the velocity red as a colour , so i decided to introduce a change

so far I'm very satisfied with the transformation

I like the color, now you need some nice custom Alcantra seats with Green contrast stitching, some tint, and more exotic wheels... then I'd really like it

Looks good but the red and black interior does not go with it at all.

Interesting... at least definitely different. Not sure I'd do that color, but it looks pretty cool.
Now, as it was said, you'll have to change the interior too, because the current one absolutely doesn't work with the new color.
Did they paint the the engine bay too? Otherwise it'd look rather weird to see the original red and the green next to each other.

Hmmm...really hard to say because your pics show all different shades of green. Props for doing something different, but not a fan of the color. As mentioned, the interior is way off now. Also noticed the piston hanging from your keychain.

wow, that's different!
I think the color works very well on exotics such as Lambos, not sure how I feel about it on an RX-8.
The interior will need some help though, the red looks very out of place.

congrats on doing something different. As long as you like it...

thanks for the comments

regarding the interior , it looks a lot better live than in pictures

I have seen a lamborghini murcielago with the same colour and green black iteriour , but to me it seemed too ordinary

I've wanted to paint a car verde itaca pearl for quite some time , it being my favourite colour , and the rx-8 seemed like a good choice to try it out

the paint job costed around 2 and half grand , converted to us dollars

I have never been a fan of light green on cars...but that is a sharp shade of lime green. Good stuff man.
