  1. it is not only the matt black, that you can love or hate, but is the whole livery. probably it is a laser blue wrapped black in order to make a change, but the result is bad, IMHO.
  2. Funny thing is that this was the trick for the Lotus Elan M100 seats. Lotus should learn from owners solutions
  3. Mule of the new Esprit based on the Evora
  4. still surprised about the fact that there are so few green Lotus. MSG is awesome, Epsom Green very nice. the Evora is good in almost all the colors, but red interiors/ green exterior with yellow accents is the best combo, but it is like an unicorn
  5. usually weave appears due to heath. I remember one car we made had this problem on the engine cover, where the weave was evident after a run but not the morning after. now we put a different first layer, to avoid this problem
  6. They homologated the car for a short series (easier to achieve), they reached the max production numbers so the car is out of the line. They produced the car as icon, not for make money, the wanted to help sales of the series cars like the Giulia and Stelvio
  7. They stopped production because of omologation. They couldn't do them anymore
  8. that's why we (where I work) use a different lamination for the painted parts VS the carbon exposed parts.
  9. discovered right now that this actual car was here in Italy for the design/production of the GT3 parts. it was with a blown engine, that's why it has been equipped with a new one
  10. no idea why there are so few in that color
  11. since I didn't add my name to the list, I'll do so now, hoping to resurrect the topic 0. Name - Car - Colour 1. CocoPops - Evora 400 - Essex Blue 2. Neal H - Evora 400 - Racing Green 3. Bravo73 - Evora - Red (with black roof, if possible) 4. C8RKH - Evora NA - (not sure on colour, like the red, the black and maybe just the natural polished silver!!!) Oh decisions...... 5. Paulcp - Evora - Essex Blue........(may prefer 1/10 scale depending on possibility & cost) 6. Colin P - Evora 400 - Racing Green or polished - not sure yet 7. Foxy - S1 - White 8.
  12. stunning car, I totally agree with the other guys! I think that a yellow side stripe should be fine, like the Evora Cup. my two cents...
  13. the engine is probably ok, but the aluminum surface is corroded. not a mechanical issue, but aesthetic. Here, this corrosion does not happens due to the different weather. I remember a recent image of a red Evora S with the volumetric in the same condition.
  14. still surprised how corrosion is an issue in UK. here, in Italy, is very rare to find an engine in the same conditions like the one in the link below.
