  1. Pictures wanted - All Colours!

    Motorsport black, looks just black when cloudy but in direct sunlight it's almost brown due to "gold" flakes.
  2. On August 12th 2018 we (as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden) arrange a track day at Kinnekulle Ring just outside Götene in Sweden. This will be the fourth time in a row that we visit this Lotus friendly track. Please contact me via PM or e-mail stefan.axelsson(at) for more information. Or take a look at the Swedish web site in case you master the language.
  3. On May 1st 2018 we (as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden) arrange a track day at Ring Knutstorp in the south of Sweden. This is a tradition since many years now. This track is brilliant for Lotus cars and usually the weather is great in the beginning of May. Please contact me via PM or e-mail stefan.axelsson(at) for more information. Or take a look at the Swedish web site in case you master the language.
  4. Mileage anxiety

    I’ve done 39,146 miles in my Evora since March 2014. I might replace it during 2018, but whatever comes next will be used as much.
  5. We, as in Lotus Car Club of Sweden, start the 2018 season by going south. The weekend April 21-22 is a busy one at Hockenheim. Both Hockenheim Historic / Jim Clark Revival and the premiere of Lotus Cup Europe. We will drive to Hockenheim on Friday 20 and stay at Hotel Speyer am Technik Museum. Two full days at Hockenheim and then back home on Monday 23. There are special discount for Lotus cars and clubs. Read more at As of today there are already 8 cars confirmed from our club. If anyone would like to join us please send pm or e-mail me at sekreterare[at]
  6. Not sure how this was done one the factory wheels. But the satin finish seems to be a bit tricky. I had my wheels sprayed in gold with satin finish by a wheel refurbishing company. But the satin clear coat started to flake. Had them re-sprayed once, but when they started to flake again I gave up. Now they are powder coated in gold with gloss finish. No issues with flaking clear coat.
  7. Evora 18" Wheels

    What’s the weight of these and from where did you source them? Alternatives to the Rimstock/Team Dynamics are always welcome.
  8. Evora 10th anniversary tour?

    Final update on this from my side, we (as in myself and my wife) has decided not to pursue this any longer.
  9. Really nice, unfortunately not available in Sweden ?
  10. Not for the faint of heart! - Now "Exige Cup 430"

    If I’d just bought a new 380 Cup I’d be pretty p****d off by this. Makes me wonder if those that have ordered an Evora GT 430 will get their cars until a new 440 is announced...
  11. Ordered a set as well, thank’s for the link above.
  12. Which month for fan Evora 10th Anniversary Tour?

    There has been several advise to avoid July-August due to traffic. Our last visit was end of July - early August and it was pretty horrible when we approached Lake District. Driving around Scotland behind a bunch of caravans doesn't seem that fun.
  13. As discussed in this thread, we are considering an Evora Tour next Summer. So, which month as a start would be the preference of those interested? Read about the plans at Also, please add your name(s) to the list below if you are interested (non-binding). 1. Stefan and Maria Axelsson, Evora S 2. 3. 4. 5.
  14. Lotus Elise Cup 260

    Agree with the comment about the lack of aero bits. No barge boards/sills. But there will probably be a 260R within a couple of months with those fitted... This is gettong ridiculus. Please start to provide spare parts to those that are waiting instead!
  15. Six of us on a very wet Saturday run the last weekend. Time to go into hibernate until Spring... 1 x Evora, 2 x Elise, 2 x Exige and 1 x Esprit S3
