Hello all, happy to be here and thank you in advance for any help and guidance. Getting ready to order a new Speedster replica and need some help with exterior and interior color combinations. It would be very helpful if member could post photos of the interior and exterior of their Speedsters and include the paint name and the colors of the seats, carpet and boot cover. While the white, black and red cars are beautiful I tend to like the other period correct shades. Thank you!

@NJ-SpeedsterGuy Welcome fellow NJ resident. I envy you the self-discipline to commission a car rather than buying used. If I had gotten to choose, I would have gone with champagne yellow and a black interior. (IRL I got the black interior with classy but relatively common silver.) Yellow also goes well with "tan" (see https://www.autobahnsouth.com/...-speedster-356-c-21/ ) but typically between the seats, the carpeting, the top, the tonneau cover, you seem to end up with three different tans. Black is black.

Enjoy your decision-making, and let us know how you go.

One of the most common color combinations is Ivory white with a tan interior - so common, that a lot of folks would say, 'Meh'.

I happen to like this one, though, because it was art directed personally by my boss, who rejected my first choice of silver with wine red interior.

It looks good if you hang out in vineyards a lot - especially with your boss.

@WOLFGANG I really like that color combination too. I believe the paint is called Seal Grey Metallic and we know the leather dash, door panels and seats are Baseball Glove. The boot cover and top are simple in Black. The only question if the Square Weave carpet color?  It seems that Salt and Pepper or Grey would work but I’ve also seen what looks like the Oatmeal or Tan which looks outstanding. Also prefer the car with the Ivory shift handle and knobs. What color carpets were in this car you saw?

If I were to do it, my three top choices would be:

GP White/blue

Ivory/brown

Aetna Blue/Red*

*Probably 90% this.



eta:  I just realized this random internet pic was my buddy’s Karman coupe, which is where I originally fell in love with the color combo, from BaT. Went for $50K. I’m kind of kicking myself I didn’t offer to trade my Spyder for it now. He was asking $65 when I went to pick my distributor from him after he rebuilt it.
