This is a unique 3 stage colour we are testing and trialling. Most notably seen on the new McClaren, it is known as Volcano Orange and consists of a silver base coat followed by a top coat orange applied in varying levels.

Below, from left to right we have 2 coats, 3 coats, 4 coats and finally 5 coats. As you can see, the more coats applied, the deeper and more red the colour becomes.

We are also looking to experiment with a new glass beaded lacquer which is applied at the final stage to give an intense glass effect to the finished product.

Once the colour has been chosen, will will test it against the Magnetic Grey which is part of the desired two tone finish we are looking for.
