    Absofeckinlutely gorgeous.
  2. Sports car wise Stu? Nothing. I sold the 400 and we bought two sensible (boring) new cars. I was just about to pull the trigger on another V8 Vantage, and to be honest it may well still well be that but Lotus always stands a chance with me and has me pondering. I just need to get over the ownership irks of 400 number one. As I said to the wife, I own two private plates, V6 XCG & V8 XCG, neither of which are currently in use. So it only makes sense we buy another car to suit, right?
  3. That's the one Paul, thanks, it's a real stunner. Funny I once spoke to MMC back in the Evora S1 days about having a special order one in that colour. I'm now lusting after another 400 in it, with exclusives tweaked interior.
  4. Brilliant, thanks Dave. The fact it's available to buy may be even better. EDIT: That's not the same car/colour.
  5. Anyone have more photos of this car?

    So I did admittedly contact Murray's to enquire, but when optioned how I'd want it I'm afraid it's just out of reach. My issue now is that while perusing Lotus cars website I spotted a car that had me drooling much more than this (I doubt I could've lived with the ironing board on the back) and despite saying never again I'm toying with another new Lotus. Ian at MMC assures me the Evora quality issues are resolved now (of course he did!) so I'm pondering. Will take a bit of negotiations at home too, I had recently gained full approval from the wife to buy another Aston.

    I'm curious about those front wheel arch vents, I'm envisioning some TVR Sagaris style stones to windscreen scenarios. They could've made some bespoke wings instead of just getting the jigsaw out, surely?

    In that case, how much is it?

    This has me logging in again every day, fun car money burning hole in pocket, interest at a high..........
  10. I'm actually shocked to see I could buy another used 400 for less than I sold mine back to a dealership a few months ago.
  11. A cheap Lotus actually makes sense. I have so little time for 'fun' driving these days, at least I wouldn't have the concern that it was a majorly depreciating car like my 400 was, and I wouldn't mind it sitting for extended periods. Maybe.......
  12. How was it for you twenty years ago Andy? I'll buy another sports car at some point no doubt, it's just that right now I have neither the time or need for one. And if I do I reckon it'll be a V8 again.
  13. As the guys above said, it went at Christmas. To be honest I don't miss it at all, which is surprising as I thought I would have. Great fun for the year I owned it (at least when it wasn't causing any grief) but I think should I feel the urge to buy another sports car I'll give something other than a Lotus a bash. Not that I'm knocking the cars, love 'em, just think I'd need a change. Bought two new sensible cars since it went for me and the other half, kind of opened my eyes on the quality stakes. Boring as hell to drive mind you, Lotus always wins on that front!
  14. @Scotsdave that was the one, nice car. No TVR next to you at the point I saw yours though, would've liked to have given that a good look over. Always wanted a TVR but never been brave enough, not that my Lotus history has exactly been trouble free, but still.
  15. Spotted today while down with the dog, think there was a wee classic tucked away in the corner as well. Recognised the plate, might have been Steve?
