    Here’s my new (to me) 410 in Elise Grey with carbon roof and yellow accents

    It’s my 5th Lotus in a row over the course of 11 years, it’s absolutely bloody fantastic and my favourite car of all. Love it!






     Beautiful 😎

  2. The 380 is a great car for sure, the sound of the car is awesome. 
    If your budget allows I would recommend the 410 as it does and has everything the 430 has (bar the titanium exhaust ) and a couple of superficial air vents etc and unless your Lewis Hamilton you wont tell the difference.

    Clearly you haven’t compared the specs correctly otherwise you would know the differences

    Listen mr keyboard warrior don’t try and disguise a dig at me cause I’m calling you out.

    i am fully aware of the spec difference between the 410 and 430.

    i personally specced  my 410 so I am fully aware, pm me and I’ll send you my mobile number I’d love to speak with you 😉

    As mentioned it can become endless what you can do to improve looks, handling, engine mods etc. 

    I do think starting from a good base makes sense and imo the Cup cars have this. The sports while looking not disimilar do not have the many subtle/improved differences. Some not so subtle though with them big wings etc

    These become more noticeable and efficient during track use as per their design, but do not detract from road use either

    At the moment you can purchase 1 year old Cup 430’s for little more than pre-registered 410’s . Add all the Carbon, Titanium Exhaust and all the other additions that the Cup has and seem good value to me


    I disagree,, show me a 430 cup for similar money to the 410.




  5. I’ve owned a 380 and I currently have a 410 exige , I think the 410 has everything on it that you’d want on a 380 , full adjustable nitrons, chargcooler , gearbox cooler , more carbon I could go on.....

    i seriously looked at the figures with adding these parts to my 380 and it was a no brainier,,,, 410 wins all day long.

    the 410 is sublime go test one ,,, you’ll want it.

    They sent you the wrong sample then bud for sure as it’s not much different. I’ve seen Gulf, Riviera, Mexico and Vodoo all in a line one the same 911 variants. Not much between Riv and Mexico at all.

    Yeah that’s what I thought when it arrived, it wasn’t what I was expecting, it looked more like a 70s Mexico blue.

    Yep Mexico exact same, dark in shade and bright in sun. Pops when properly detailed.

    Belive it not riviera even lighter than Mexico but the bright sun pic makes it look brighter. That whole palette up to Vodoo blue all look stunning 


    Lotus sent me a sample of Mexico blue as that was my original choice but it was much much darker than Riviera,even in direct sunlight.

    I'm glad I went with what I did.

    I agree with you though all those blues are stunning.

    A man of good taste 👍🏻

    I specced my GT4 in Mexico blue and Riviera was a close second.

    That REALLY suits an Exige and if I was speccing would be exactly how I’d do it.

    Well done sir! 

    Ps anyone else who’s speccing a 430 / 410 acid green would also look epic.


    Thanks,,,,, It really is a sublime colour that changes under different lighting.

    heres a better pic
