black looks awesome but i would go for a lot of chrome embellishments with black
chrome grille, chrome wheels, some flatbed chrome ornament on the tip of the hood nose
angel eyes and the LED strips would look supercool too but not blackened

Dude. Stick to black!! The more you experiment the more confused you will be. Simple. You'll never go wrong with black or white. The entire car is original, you don't want to paint it yellow and have someone call it a bumble bee look alike. That would just hurt. White OR black will show off the car to the very best!
BTW, when is the expected date of completion?

amazing Work . Looks great

I have been following this thread for a while. Defenitely its going to be worth the wait.

Black it would be all the way. Black looks great. Its a killer. But a bit difficult to maintain. That's my personal opinion.

I have been reading this thread since i was a lurker have read all the pages and eagerly waiting for the finished product. I would also suggest for the BLACK BEAUTY. Only thing that would differ from your photoshop image is that the galsses wont be jet black, due to the RTO norms.

All the best with your project and hopefully, we will see the Beast Soon.

Stick with Ferrari Red or Lambo Yellow. IMO Black will hide all those million dollar details. Change the rear end's colour to black instead of yellow and see the difference your self!
By the way rear end looks amazing

I'm with Red or Yellow

I 100% vote for HammerHead's comment. Black will look killer but the detailing will be hide out. Go for RED.

to add to the chaos, did you ever think of doing it in chrome, this outstanding vehicle will stand out in shiny chrome
by chrome i mean actual chrome not metallic silver, is that possible though ?

Hey cmdalvi, +1 for Yellow but do keep in mind the yellow should be a golden yellow as shown in the picture to look good otherwise it will spoil the party.

Hey People... Yes Yellow is now final!! and dont worry bout the finish, as u guys might have seen the w126. The yellow will be exact as the Lamborghini gallardo as we will be mixing the paint using the shade card from the Lamborghini's itself.

well anyway picture time.. work is in full swing. the car is being built from the back towards the front. The dickey is worked out and the rear fender is fixed. dont mind the tyres as the final product will have the tyres sticking out as in the photoshop pictures.

Cheers everyone!!!

I would still suggest you to go for black. It will look much much better.
