  1. ๐Ÿ‘ Indeed, it seems to be urgent to build or find iron rotors... A lot cheaper, at least in the USA : https://soulpp.com/product/mclaren-600lt-720s-girodisc-iron-rotor-conversion/ it looks like the 540C is a "bargain" now to enter the McLaren world. Not as fast and exclusive as a 600LT, but it must be fantastic with more reasonable running costs (and even more for the ones ready to remap the engine). It must be tempting if you live in Great Britain and have a similar budget to the Lotus Exige 410/430 ones.
  2. ๐Ÿ˜ Do you plan to use it a lot on track ? Is the running cost comparable to a Porsche GT3 on track ? Does it have known issues under hard usage ?
  3. Maybe it's in my head but it seems logic : I feel the car stability is degrading above 160 km/h without the hard-top, as if the rear was floating a little bit sometimes (mine is a sport 380 with original aerodynamic parts). Not scary, but noticeable compared to lower speeds.
  4. I choosed to have a Lotus baffled sump fitted on my sport 380 when I bought it, before I knew the rubber gate flaps had to be serviced... But last time I saw my dealer he was not categoric on the frequent servicing interval considering my car is not intensively used (only one or two trackdays per year).
  5. You can get the carbon rear diffuser finisher here : https://www.deroure.com/partinfo.asp?MAK=1&MDL=40&TBL=11922&SMA=0&SMO=0&ST=B132U1315F&SC=1&PBID=1483594 The web site "the-chariot" seems to provide high quality products ๐Ÿคจ but I agree all prices look to be bargains (however I don't know about shipping costs and export taxes, and VAT ? ) https://www.facebook.com/chariotmotorsports
  6. Nice tips ! Is it detailled in the "LOTUS VEHICLE SERVICE INFORMATION", or is it reverse engineering ?
  7. I hope so, as it is told in the press release it would be a shame if it is not true
  8. ๐Ÿ˜ nice hard-top with v weave pattern Is the outside look really close to the OEM one's ?
  9. It looks like it is not the same in France ๐Ÿคฃ I suppose it's a typo (Sport 410 also, 43.5 l )
  10. Lotus website claims 40 l for sport 350 (and previous models as far as I know), 43.5 l for sport 410 (strange, it must be 48 l ?), 48 l for sport/cup 380 / cup 430 Have latest sport 350 models been upgraded to 43.5 l ?
  11. My shot is probably a little bit overexposed and the color looks lighter than what I saw in real. But as it is supposed to be "laser blue" like the one of Exige S1, it is quite light in the bright light.
  12. No I forgot to get interior shots. You can see some on the dealer's website : https://www.lotus-verhiest.com/fr/new-cars/new-stock/lotus-exige-sport-410-3 https://www.lotus-verhiest.com/fr/new-cars/new-stock/lotus-exige-sport-410-2 These cars are really good looking, even if it is just a little bit of paint, stickers and new seats colors. But I don't like the plastic diffuser finisher on 410, it looks a little bit cheap compared to the carbon one on my 380 (but mine lacks the chargecooler ๐Ÿ˜ญ ) I don't understand the price of this special edition when I see the price o
  13. I have seen two of them in real at my dealer (Verhiest). Very beautiful
  14. It is totally overpriced for a RHD sport 380 if it is the real price (and not for a sport 410 as advertised). Why are you interested in it ?
