    New 410 musings - Ex Cayman

    Wow the can not believe the negativity towards this thread, if Jonny is not happy with what looks like a no solution, being the complicity of changing the roof, why should there be a problem with regecting the car?. Please give the guy a break, we all need to be happy no matter how much money we fork out and in this case it's rather a lot of cash.
  2. My donation is in. Fantastic car as it is, even with people on here picking fault with it, as much as I would love the car, it's as to be all about the trust and helping in what ever way we can. Thanks Jim Clark Trust and Lotus Cars in what is a other step in the right direction.

    Holiday to Sorento

    Been to this Hotel two times, outside Sorento, stunning location with view's over the bay of Naples and the Amalfi coast, first class 5star hotel, all inclusive, which you don't get in Italy that often. In my opinion better than staying in Central Sorento and they have courtesy bus that runs all day when you do want to go into Sorento.

    Don't get all the advice being given mainly regarding painting the roof, the biggest appeal about the 410 is the Carbon exterior treatment to the car. And can not see one bit of a problem for someone rejecting a car if a company are unwilling to put right what is a major fault and sadly for Jonny lotus not being very helpful yet again. To me its not unfair to ask for the roof to be replaced, no matter what it involves. If lotus come back and say no we can not do it. The only way out is to sadly reject the car. That's why we have consumer rights. Good luck the outcome Jonny in what I can only imagine being a very painful situation to have to go through.

    As much as I love the latest Evora, be 400, 410 and especially 430 its hard to improve of a side profile picture than this one, simply stunning even Ferrari would struggle to match that ❤️
  11. Had the opportunity to meet the designer (Julian Tomson) of the S1 Elise yesterday for a future article in the Absolute Lotus magazine and have to say what a charming person he is, he seemed to love driving my 250cup and gave me a great insight at his time at lotus and still a Lotus enthusiast to this day, got passed the latest Absolute Lotus, which I think is due out this Friday and the Esprit Showdown is a fantastic article thanks to the owners on here.

    Not trying to be negative far from it, sport racers great cars and will be one of the most sort after Evora's. But the only thing that lets the car down is the interior and that's the colour option, having only the black and red, great on some cars, obviously red, good on white, get away with it on darker colours. But on blue and other not so popular colours like the burnt Orange mentioned above not so good. Different colour options would have been nice at the time of build.

    The best colour for any lotus to be in. Great choice of car and colour.
