The development of pigment with 40 individual layers and microstriplines playing in the sun, took 15 years – it was first shown on LC coupe in 2017. Soft roof is also made in blue color, only used for this shade of Marine Blue.
The dominant color of interior – white. It is used for the seats, the bottom of the front panels, consoles, pillars, steering wheel and ceiling. In contrast with them, play dark blue inserts in the doors and front panel.
