Personally I think Aide has one of the best looking cars, hopefully he'll post soon. Meanwhile this is one of my other favourites.

This was the photo that swayed me at respray time, also agree that Aide's car is a thing of beauty

Thanks for the help everyone, I thought it would be easy picking a new colour but there are so many colours the Cerbera looks good in. If it had it's original headlights I would have it done in yellow but with the 3 little lights I'm thinking some sort of grey. Most people who have seen the car tend to tell to stick with Ocean Haze.

Reflex charcoal is the one for me if I had to change


Mine is currently Grigio Titanio which is also very elegant

Cerbs look good in any colour

Having a good matching interior and exterior colour is where they often fail. When I was looking for mine I saw several cars that looked really good inside or out by made me feel sick when the door was opened. I did get the impression that some cerbera's original owners where colour blind.

I'd like to get mine resprayed yellow. Cerbs look good in most colours but by the sound of it yellow is your first choice so you've got to go for it, plus it would work well with your interior.
Is this the brochure picture you meant?

I think this was halcyon Midas pearl.
Giallo fly yellow was a popular non pearl yellow used by TVR.

Test drove a Pearlescent Raspberry when I was sniffing for one - I love a lairy colour on a Cerb. I reckon yellows and purples look great and can't help thinking a pea/lime green respray would look great.

To be honest I don't think there's a bad colour, though I don't think reds and Sage Green do a lot for the lines.

Here's mine (Wild Oyster Pearlescent). Sensible colour - but when I bought it I didn't know it'd be a keeper.

I think it is gonna have to be giallo fly yellow like suggested. I love the colour but everyone else I've asked seemed to give me a funny look and say "not yellow". TVR owners must be a funny lot, I've always loved the Diablo in yellow too, the Cerbea will have to do though.

Where's the fun in sticking with the same colour? Take your time and find something interesting that blows your socks off when see it.

Started out thinking "I like the colour of my car, too"...
Originally I was convinced never to set foot in a pink car -Had a ride in a very pink Cerbera once and wanted one ever after.
I was convinced dark green cars must be boring and for old men only -now I own a pentland green Cerbera and love it.
Generally I would think the more daring colours suit the car well and reflex colours work great on its shape. But that's from a guy with a dark green car.
I wouldn't want my car in a colour that reminds me of another car -no Ferrari red/yellow, no Lambo green/orange -Oh wait, pentland green is off an Aston Martin.

Thinking doesn't seem to work, sorry.
So I'm with SonicHedgeHog: "Take your time and find something interesting that blows your socks off when see it."

Have a little look on House of Kolor website.

I think that's where the last owner got my cars colour from, a sort of glittery, spectraflair black colour.
