  1. Thanks mate! Yeah good to catch up with you too. It’s been a while! Nice brolly! 😜
  2. I hope the tacky black & carbon badge is an option. I’ve just about got used to the new roundel but it needs to be yellow and green!
  3. I have heard that the Emira will come with a version of the current V6 which makes sense given the chassis is an evolution of the Evora. 4 banger will be turbocharged apparently. Given the Geely ownership, Mercedes are an obvious choice. Could it be the A35 or A45 engine?
  4. recently fitted my OSPORT Carbon Rad Ducts. I have to say I'm over the moon with how good they look!
  5. Had a great day (despite the subsequent burnt legs!). Great to see old faces and meet new ones. Also had the honour and privilege of driving Mike Kimberley back to Norfolk in my Elise as @Kimbers Excel was a little on the warm side! Roll on next year!
  6. Here are a few I snapped... Video to follow soon! You can see the full album on flickr:
  7. I'm going to aim to be at Clacket Lane services by half 8

    Sorry it's a really rushed job!!

    Evora 400 Colors

    If I could afford a 410 then my choice would be go for the Aubergine (Purple) colour from the S2 Elise and Exige. Lovely colour and I think would go really well with the Carbon!
  10. 215: Silver Elise S2 (unless it sells and then it'll be my yellow Elise S2!)
  11. This is very exciting! I'd love something like this in my Elise. The first video you posted looks great as it is!
  12. I only have one suggestion (as Lotus seem allergic to showing up to the UKs biggest celebration of the cars they make) and that is simply........ Carmen Jorda
  13. Sorry I didn't take a picture when I was there but here's some footage I shot of a Metallic white 400 at Stratton Motor Company:
  14. Sorry if I posted this before but I can't remember doing so.... I was lucky enough last year to get a few hours on track with the 360 CUP. I made a low-rent video and tried my best to review in the short time I had with the car:
  15. Nothing in the press release mentions anything about this being carbon from memory. It's composite like the rest of body I believe. It should be carbon though and would much better. The yellow paint does not suit it IMHO
  16. The clam is the same although I think Lotus now use lighter clams on all Exiges compared with the earlier V6 models. The only difference is the inspection panel which is simply a different shape and the same as the one on the 360 CUP. It looks great on the CUP but I'm not sure it works as well in the body colour. Just my opinion.

    Evora 400 Colors

    Colin posted one in Motorsport Green... The darker green is called racing green
  18. Not a picture as such but a video I posted recently of a couple of well known Esprits on here:
  19. From what I'm led to believe, the front splitter works with the rear spoiler to balance the car. Just the front splitter could upset the balance at speed?
  20. It is an interesting topic. I get very anal about Lotus colours and the current plan of not naming most of the colours annoys me. I like to look at a car an know which specific colour it is but then I'm sad like that. I'm actually planning to do a full colour change on my car. I fancy something different and not done on a Lotus before. I have a few ideas but top of that list so far is Porsche Ultraviolet from the GT3 RS. I'm not usually a purple fan but that colour looks quite cool to my eyes.
