    This post makes me wonder what happened to VP14 and 15. Anyone know their whereabouts/purpose?

    Was it one of these that became VIN F003? What about the other?

    Are you sure that is Fusion Red? It sure looks like a metallic color (thus, Radiant Red) to me.

    Actually, no. I'm not sure. I'm only sure that it's VP17. I used TEG's list for the color name. What color is P2/VIN3? There were some pics with P2 and VP17 together and they look to be the same color. I had originally assumed P2 was Radiant Red.

    EDIT:
    Confirmed that VP17 is Radiant Red. In fact so is EP2. There currently isn't a Roadster that is Fusion Red.

    RE-EDIT
    : No longer true. Signature 100, #5 is the first Fusion Red.

    Fusion Red

    I haven't seen a Roadster identified as Fusion Red yet, but I believe the color would look a lot like this. . .

    VP5 Info

    There are a couple of photos of VP5 in the private owners area. The photos aren't very interesting, but there's is a little bit of information in the captions:

    Jet Black VP5 on display in the Tech Pavilion at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K. Photo taken June, 2007.

    Jet Black VP5 from a bird's eye view, featuring a light grey leather interior configured in "traditional" style. Photo taken July, 2007.
