      Picking a custom wrap was hard enough but throwing 2 tones in the mix set my heart aflutter. Why stop there? Now I’m thinking a band of paisleys or water drops on a teal base. Decisions…decisions………. Welp, I have plenty of time to play in Photoshop and figure it out.

      Great job, Peter!

      FYI – if you don’t have the 3M swatch book or for anyone that wants one, I found it on Amazon.

      Go to: https://www.amazon.com/Wrap-Film-1080-Swatch-Sample/dp/B018PLCEKY It helps to see the actual proucts, especially the color flip effects in daylight by bending the sample.

      The picture is misleading – what I received includes all of the 2080 series that are on their latest poster as far as I can tell. It also includes overlay samples which are clear films that are either textured (think carbon fiber or brushed effects) or, are fine-grained reflective or colored micro-dots.

      It’s a little pricey at $26.98 with free Prime delivery and free returns. There are several EBay vendors the advertise lower prices but I trust Amazon and have never been comfortable with EBay.

        Paul, I’m pretty sure that Aptera has not actually come out and said they will be using 3M. When I requested the potential vendor in January, they responded. “We don’t have exact details on the custom options at this time but will announce them soon. Please follow us on social media or sign up for our newsletter to receive the latest updates.” I haven’t seen anything definite since then. (If anyone has an actual Aptera response, please, let us know.) The 3M idea I recall came up in a thread, but I believe it was only speculation. (Yeah, it’s likely that it will be, but, who knows.)

        This is a great find Peter. I have ordered one myself. Hopefully the 3M 2080 Vinyl film series will be the what we can choose from with the “Custom Color” option upgrade available (which I have already added to mine)

      see other car online configurators

      some i still rerember are:

      lexus lc500s nori green, atomic silver,

      rolls royces petra gold, 103 ex concept blue, bentlys light gazzele

      mclaren elvas gold, cirrus grey (like matte greyish white), Serpentine, “gulf” livery (and similar unsophisticated playful colors), mclaren 720s nardo orange, cirrus grey

      mx 5 miatas pearl white and dark cherry red interior 100th anniversary, 50th anniversary dark red, deep crystal blue

      2020 porsche 935 black and gold

      something like vanta black/nanotube black, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53JclJwR4Po (at 7:47)

      some paints change color under different amounts of light ie. from red orange in dark color to yellow under lot of light, how about a vserion of that that tranistions colors that imitate oher things, ex. simulating oceans water with its dark blue that transitions to teal to light blue in spectrum, and the paint reflects light liek sea water does. also fruit, like red orange yellow green of indian mango, pink lady apple, pinapple, shiny fish scales, lizard/snake skin

      and combinations of colors… about idea of top color being different from bottom color, there can be a transition between 2 colors where 1 fades into another between edges of the taillight, that flow throught car.

      colors that show shape of car most, ie. not too bright or dark, lots of color transitions depending on amount of light being shined on it which makes more eye catching the changes in shape as light seems to move across car as car or light source is moving, etc

      a110 warthog shark/snake livery etc, branding emulation ex. arizona tea, Patagonia, coca cola, emulating things like marble stone, other stones, etc

      the red lines show how giving visual lines a appearance of connecting to each other gives car a arguably more interesting look vs random lines flowing into each other as some of the lines now seem to be doing.

      the line that that divides the window can also be colored so that there is a visual line flowing to the endpoint at the tail where all other lines flow toward, much like how the wind flows around the car. would be extra unique. also see the silver lien circled in the black car picture bellow. when sunlight reflects off of the shiny piece, the point of high bright reflection moves across that line as car is moving, giving a light animation emphasizing the shape of the line. its something that could be done with mirror-like chrome/mirror-like rose gold chrome/mirror-like gold chrome etc

      the line at the wheel cover was supposed to emphasize the aerodynamic water drop/boat shape of the cabin, it may have to look different to give that appearance at a angle of appearance that most people will look at (which is the angle that people see car while standing or sitting next to it in their average height car, not the angle that the camera is looking at the car at in this picture. the standing angle is most important b/c owner and others approaching in parking lot is where people will pay the most attention to car/take pictures for social media/remember what they see, not while people are driving.)

    Probably should qualify these images with a statement that they are not official Aptera offerings for exterior color schemes but are provided by an Aptera enthusiast as personal, imaginative, creations. The only official exterior colors are Noir (Black), Sol (White), and Luna (Gray)

        Yes but not all will open the pictures and this will most likely result in requests for these colors from people that don’t open them and mistakenly believe they are official/provided by Aptera or the only custom colors available.

      I think what is needed is the wrap specifications based on the actual final spec body. More specifically, they should release the Aptera as a 3-D model that you can import into a wildly available program like Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw or even Google’s 3D program. Maybe choose a format that would likely be used by the sign and wrap companies.

      This approach will ultimately help the brand as expanding the availability of the wraps to shops nationwide, means you can potentially source your ‘factory’ option wraps at a lower cost than you’d find at a shop in California. Maybe even bid a contract for 50 sets of a 20 popular color schemes to the thousands of shops capable of doing the work and figure your costs will be really low. Why? A particular shop will have in stock the inventory they are currently costing to do distinct schemes. One shop will do 3-schemes, another two, another five with this supplier and so on, because the lowest bids for each color scheme will be from shops able to produce them efficiently.

      With some popularity, the cost of an ebay ad from one of the shops of a really cooool design, will make Aptera wraps ‘a thing’ like vape-box wraps. Oh, and that is free advertising.

      I think what is needed from Aptera is their big picture attitude regarding wraps. I say this because I think the main effort at Aptera ought to be encouraging the aftermarket for wraps – i.e. making it real easy for wrap-type shops everywhere to bring their art to party.

    Impressive work. Two queries 1) Do you have a supplier lined up and if so 2) What is the availability of smaller custom ‘wraps’ (specifically thinking of a ‘solar electric’ badge or similar.

      Jeff, Peter is an Aptera fan and not an Aptera employee. These renderings are created by him as a service to the rest of us, to assist in ideas for our own vehicles. I am not sure, but some have mentioned that Aptera will use 3M wraps, requests for specialties should go through Aptera, but I have no idea if they are anywhere near dealing with requests along that line. (I want to know as well so I can consider some choices) Once again, Many Thanks to Peter for these illustrations.

        Thanks. Looks really good. Hard to show the full effect though as it does change from different angles to the vehicle. That is the part that is so impressive to me (about the flip patterns)

        Fingers crossed Aptera will support colors like these (Already have selected custom color in my pre-order)

    I just can’t wait to see the custom interior options. I’m ok with either Noir or an all unwrapped gloss black exterior. The interior is where I want to leave nothing to be desired at this point. And it seems they’ve deviated from the interior colors featured in their Noir a bit. It’s nicer looking than their current Vida option, but maybe that’s a Paradigm edition color scheme…

        how about including different colored tints like white/silver window tint on different color, gold like a f22 cabin glass

        Does anyone have experience w/ silver or white window tinting? How does it look from the inside looking out? from cars

        <font face=”inherit”>ive been thinking of that lines in a color distinct from background to indicate major </font>aerodynamic<font face=”inherit”> wind paths, or lines as described in my post in this thread under the one with lot of pictures of other car in it</font>

          more potential coach lines for the wrap. bottom one goes around what would be front trunk lid in normie car. it also looks like it could line up to replicate Nike shoe logo, but i dont know if their would be legal issues for painting a intellectual property like a logo although it maybe no problem if it not excatly the same logo and if u misspell “nike” or use different font etc
