I voted for the white. Mostly because I recently had a black Corvette and it was nothing but trouble keeping it clean and to not show light scratches.
Black is a labor of love...

I have the 2005 and once your actually in the car the red looks very different. in fact most compliments on the car I receive are based on the interior red with the black birds eye expresso wood.

I can understand how you feel. In fact when I look at my cars interior from pictures I have taken I dont like it myself, The color looks different in pictures then when in person . I guess you have to see it in person

That is so true. I hate owning black cars but they sure do look great when they're clean.

I voted black, but white would be better.

I have attached pictures and there is a poll.

Thanks
I've probably owned almost every color car available in my almost 50 years of car ownership. The only black car I've owned was a black pearl Nissan Z car turbo. What a pain to keep it clean. Black looks great for a few hours after its been detailed. White looks good for weeks.

Pearl White is great looking and easy to take care of. My wife's CT is Starifire Pearl and my recent Toyota Avalon was Pearl White.

The 07 SC430 vs the 05 gives you lots of factory upgrades.
Newly designed gauge cluster
Better headlights
LED Tail lights
6 speed automatic transmission

There's not much difference between an 06-09

I think the white/saddle is the best combo. I really would tire of the red after one week in the car.

I'm not going to be a hater here, so I won't say anyting bad about the "other" car. I have an 07 PB and I can tell you it's awesome! It's not just white, it's pearl white! I don't see many SC430's on the road and I never see one like mine. I love having a unique car. The earlier poster is right, when you see the red interior in a photo it looks off, kind of orange. But in person, it looks deep, true red. A clasic roadster

I love the 2002 Neiman Marcus, 2005 PB(black on red), and the 2007 PB(white on red). Let me know if you want to sell it.

I voted for the '07. I have seen the Pearl White in person and it really glows like a pearl. I have a '04 but the upgrades of the '07 are great and with the spider wheels they look Much better than the non-PB version. saves money on upgrades ... Last summer I actually saw anothe PB ''07. I'm not a big fan or the red interior but I love the red&white classic corvettes and thunderbirds!

Good luck - either way you will love the SC.

There is a 2007 Pearl White with Saddle interior that just got listed at an independent dealer in St Pete Florida. This dealer has a nice small inventory of high end cars usually in pristine condition. The Pictures on the site are not of this car but of a generic SC430.
http://www.genuinemotorcars.com/Used...leDetails.aspx

My 2007 is Silver/Saddle and I really like the Saddle interior.

This one has 22,000 miles on it. My sources told me the dealer just got it on an auction in PA for $29,300 so he probably has at least $31,000 in it with auction fees and shipping. If he put new tires on it he probably has another $900 invested.

He has it listed for $36,980.00. My guess is that it can be had for $35k or slightly less. .
