  1. Both of the children back at home after winter hibernation!
  2. Beautiful. The lines match perfectly with the black of the rear wing.
  3. The Evora with its little brother!
  4. I tried to get carbon fiber in place of the small black part of the 400 wing but Lotus said it wasn’t technically feasible. I went with black wing part, carbon fiber roof, carbon fiber rear diffuser cover (saves a lot of weight) and carbon fiber hood panel. I was concerned about black and carbon fiber conflicting. But they wind up looking great together in this pattern.
  5. Fun weekend with the Exige V6 Cup R at Spring Mountain Motorsports in Nevada.
  6. Bloated GranTurismo with a little too much junk in the trunk??? Let’s get back to feeling good. 🙂
  7. I actually think their inspiration was the 2005 Buick Riviera.
  8. Cool. Flies too low for radar....
  9. What is that green/gray color? Very nice.
  10. Evora 400 was great on a 300mile drive to New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the Lemons race this past weekend (Evora wasn’t the race car). Another great Evora there too!
  11. Thanks for all the comments! I think they are. I know that it was a very big deal for Lotus to get these seats from Sparco because there are all kinds of restrictions on the seats. For example, unlike European cars, they can't do the Lotus logo in contrast stitching on the seat. But, in fairness to Lotus and Sparco, the seats are very good (right level of comfort and hold on cornering) and look good in person (much better than in this particular shot). Re cupholder -- I can't imagine what they were thinking in the design. It's so silly trying to reach way behind you blindly with a cup of sloshing liquid because they located the cup holder like 6" behind the seat. The Lotus cup holder in my 2011 Elise is an aluminum ring with a little leather strap that slides forward from under the radio -- it's not a bad design, although the cup holder is actually too small to hold most cups.
  12. She has arrived! Truly brilliant machine.
  13. White/black pack combo looks great. Congrats!
