  1. I've been looking at 981 GT4s for a year or two... If I'm honest though, having bought a Caterham and a Megane trophy in the past 10 months, the Evora was already up for sale before the Emira was announced and if I hadn't liked it I would've carried on without a Lotus in the garage until it was time for the Caterham to be changed.
  2. @Evotion Aimee at Silverstone told me a couple of weeks ago that the deposit I paid them early May was definitely all that I needed to do until September/October, and I didn't need to pay the 2k to Lotus separately Not heard anything from them on this point yet, hence question to Bibs above. Don't want to pay a new deposit and then lose my place with Silverstone for the existing one.
  3. @Bibsshould I wait for the refund before placing a new deposit with lotus?
  4. I want a launch edition, assuming they are including the KEF stereo, 12 way electric seats etc in that, don't see why you'd turn it down. At the price I've been told it's a totally straightforward decision, assuming there is a decent enough finance deal to back it... Most people will end up speccing them in anyway post launch edition, at a higher price. My main decision is the powertrain, which I'm still totally undecided on.
  5. @Demolitionman13 Lotus Colchester hasn't been around long, only a couple of years I think. However I've found them pretty disinterested until now, hence my deposit being placed a while ago with Silverstone 100 miles away!
  6. I'll hazard a guess at Lotus Colchester being on the 'avoid' list for starters.
  7. If its anything like the Evora, it will be fine. The exhaust flaps in the non-switchable models open at 4,500 which is well above motorway speeds. The 400 switchable version lets you go to noisy mode earlier...
  8. Bit early to decide @Bibswithout knowing price, specs, timing etc. Leaning towards the 4
  9. Do you know if Lotus are going to offer extended warranties after the initial 3 year period @Bibs? Appreciate it's early days but it's always been a little disappointing from an ownership perspective that nothing has been available on the current cars.
  10. We don't need to finalise anything until the autumn!
  11. Sounds good Lee... I love the red leather personally, but it's a bit marmite. And I have my suspicions that once the Emira cup or whatever it's called is announced, I'd be thinking of moving on the first edition so do need to keep that in mind.
  12. If the V6 is a wholesale carry over of the existing Evora powertrain... that means along with the sweet sweet noise from the exhaust you get the existing gearbox. And clutch. And gear ratios. Which I've 'enjoyed' in a couple of forms over the past 6 and a half years, but I am not going to buy a third car with the same thing. I'm very much leaning towards the AMG. Red with silver forged wheels and the ice grey leather interior, or yellow with black wheels and black alcantara/yellow stitching. Glory be that you can still get a leather wheel in any event!
  13. I want to find out more about the specs/engines. If the V6 is really only 400hp then I'm not sure why you'd bother with it frankly apart from the stick shift. Especially if it's the same engine from the Evora, not the new Toyota V6. Also, pricing.... I'm keen, I'll leave the deposit down for the time being. The car looks fantastic and the interior also. But not 100% convinced
  14. Looks like a proper supercar... super short front overhang. My wallet is quaking.
