It's a winner (in that light). I need to see it in natural sunlight, and I may be paying a visit to Mike Furman soon.

Actually, I'm thinking if the new "Rhythm and Blue" color is as light as some have guessed, you could marry it with Sebring Orange and have this. There is no more iconic color combo.

It would depend. If you're a silver wheels person, I'd go Kalahari. If I order a SO convertible, it will be black interior, black wheels, black top.

That would work too. Wife likes the blue and I like the orange.

Grey, unless you just love Halloween, then black.

I read that there is a special Orange package that includes black interior with orange stitching and orange calipers.

The paint finish sure looked good on one of the youtube videos that I saw. I assume that these panels have been painted with the new system and not corrected???

Black would work, but if me, I would go with Kalahari!

Looks like the ZR1 in the above photos has orange calibers.
