  1. Seriously is that expensive there is a increasing number of inferior cars sell for a similar amount of money and in most cases a lot more. If you want me to name a few I am happy to oblige.
  2. Never been a fan of Max and just as he is starting to win me over. The idiots at Red Bull and especially the tosser Horner as put the most discussing taste in my mouth It’s a sad day for the sport that I sincerely love. Flavio Briatore was probably the most disliked team boss in the history of F1 as been surpassed by Horner by a country mile.
  3. Even with its doors open, spread wide like wings and all its bling transfers the McLaren only got marginally more attention than my humble Evora.
  4. For me having lived with lotus cars for the last 20years and owned most varieties in that period, including S1 Evora and till my latest 410sport. I felt it strange getting into the Emira, any easier I am not sure, having sat in both cars at Goodwood and yes I am getting on in years but I definitely felt my 410 is easier to to get into,the sill helps me in the its somewhere to put my backside before clambering in or out. The Emira felt like you was sat on the road before you even started to enter the cockpit, just felt like wow that’s a long way down. Just giving my honest opinion and my deposit is still firmly in place so sure its like most things you just need to adapt to change.
  5. Brilliant and like most level headed F1 enthusiast, journalist, team manager would surely agree a racing incident. 👍
  6. Red bull are coming over as the Republican Party of the F1 pitlane with Marko playing the part of Donald Trump. Its just embarrassing the sorest losers in the history of motorsport. Horny will be making a Trump statement next and say that Verstappen actually won the race and should be awarded the 25 points.
  7. Well said Pete, could not agree more 👍
  8. It’s convinced me to change after seeing it at Goodwood and I have a year old GT410 sport. Will it drive any better? of course it will it’s a Lotus.
  9. It’s not got the titanium exhaust and I could be wrong but I am sure the titanium exhaust was never a option till we got to 410. As does it make any difference, definitely not when it come to sound but in weight yes it saves a couple of kg.
  10. Wow what a great day for British Motorsport and yes I know it’s only the Friday, but as a proud Brit and a passionate F1 enthusiast, it’s what we need after the aftermath of not winning the euro’s. It’s hard to pick the driver of the day, Lewis? Fantastic yet again, easy to see why he is a 7 time world champion. Lando? Fantastic after the shit week he experienced from the British fan base of a different sport. George Russell is my pick of the day what he as done this year as to put him the seat along side Lewis next year and let the best man win.

    Lotus Emira

    Wow some negativity here, no wonder they are looking for a bigger audience.
  12. Agree a great video and yes I understand Shmee is not everyone’s cup of tea but he will put the Emira into the into the public spotlight, probably more than than anyone on the planet which will obviously bring a big increase in sales. A great insight into the new Radford sounds like it’s going to be a very potent, Exige tub and lots more power, clad in Carbon, makes for a very special sports car.
  13. A 410sport owner here and yes agree the Sparcos do sit a bit heigh, sitting in the Emira is a totally different feeling, climbing in feels like a supercar experience and even though the seats are not the final production was told they will sit lower with more side bolster it honestly felt like sitting a supercar, a friend as a MaLaren 720S it felt similar. Having owned most of the recent lotus cars over the last 20years and mainly been happy with the seating position and the sense of occasion that as brought, I have to say I could not believe the difference it just felt like a junior supercar.
  14. Only two in the Goodwood hotel on Thursday.
  15. I was definitely going for Hethel Yellow, but after seeing the Seneca Blue on the stand change my mind there and then thought it looked stunning. Speaking to Scott Walker he seems to think the Yellow is a flat paint if that’s the case that would put me off. As for everything else the show car is probably be the spec that I am going choose with the V6 manual.

    There will probably be a Carbon option somewhere down the road and would look the business in Carbon instead of the cheap looking shiny plastic.

    Lotus Emira

    Right my honest opinion on the Emira. First things great hospitality from Lotus, they took us into there guests lounge and gave us tea and Coffee while we waited for Scott Walker to come and talk us through the car. The car? the first edition are going to be tremendously spec’d virtually every option on the car and obviously a a big saving on if you where ticking the option box on the base car. My thoughts on the car, it’s stunning in the flesh there where a couple of things I did not like, the cheap looking shiny plastic surrounds on vents feeding the engine and same applies to the rear arch vents apart from that I could not fault. Interior is in a different league even though its a preproduction car with and they said said the final car is going to be even better, felt strange not climbing over a sill to get into a lotus. No mention on pricing at the moment, but get to see the car again in September with a lot more information by then.

    Seen it in the flesh today all I can say no one will be disappointed.
  19. Checked into the Goodwood hotel, seen the Emira already and will give my honest opinion on the car in the next few days. One the thing I will say no one will be disappointed when they see it in the flesh.

    Nice one Duncx, will let you know what it is like in the flesh when I see on Thursday 👍
  21. Yes it Yep it looks like it’s going to be orange this year and let the best car and man win. It’s a shame we can not support British born talent a bit more no matter of his skin colour . Let’s hope we can support England to win the euros, the taking of the knee as not been so much of a problem as the team as progressed. 😁
  22. I can vouch for the car a very good friend of mine was the previous owner, it’s a one of one in Colour with yellow brake callipers and decals and its stunning in the flesh.
