IIRC it's been resprayed so that would explain why it looks way better than your average Copper Red :colors:

The following pics really do it justice 8)

It’s actually not been resprayed, simply well polished. My Nemesis has incredibly smooth paint but not as shiny as that!

I suspect Soul Red was derived from this colour Mark. Apart from colour coding the bonnet, lip spoiler and boot and rear bumper the rest of the paintwork is original Copper Red. It’s a marmite colour depending on the light conditions. Fantastic in bright sunlight, quite drab under artificial light. It has grown on me I have to admit the longer I’ve owned it.

That does look lovely indeed!!!

I just stumbled across a picture of mine, and it struck me (though I may be biased ;) ) that 17 years or so down the line the shape of the '8 is holding up really well, at least to my eyes

But then I'm very old, so maybe my eyes aren't what they used to be? #-o

Most kind of you Nigel, and I’ve always liked that tasty Toyota of yours, whose shape is also, IMHO, holding up extremely well! 👍🏻

There really is no accounting for taste is there, he should have colour coded it to the rear spoiler IMO :puke:
