  1. Went out with the wife for a pun lunch the other day and had a nice chap say nice lotus and asked a few questions about it, then later on another guy and his Mrs/partner etc ask if they could take some photos. 
    Almost every time I am out in it someone asks about the car. It’s nice as people love the fact it’s a lotus and not a fezza or Porsche.

  2. I think the NA cars have bottomed out now and will keep going north for a bit and probably firm up at £30k ish. S cars slightly more £35-40k.

    as for the 400’s they may take a knock to start with but think they will be a £60k car in the feature. All eve peas are going to be collectible mainly because, they look exotic, sound fantastic, drive very well and are cheap to run. The emira in my opinion will get people looking at evoras, and thinking yes the interior is not as good but it looks fab and has rear seats (sort of)

    I am keeping mom long term hopefully. Wish I did with my old intergrale and alpine a610, as they are all worth far more than what I paid for them.

  3. Yep that’s pretty much the spec. The interior is how it left the factory at lotus. 
    the suspension set up is bloody excellent and come with a life time warranty. I need to compare it to a stock 400, but it does go like an absolute rocket. Much faster than my M3.

    condition wise it is genuinely immaculate and I couldn’t be happier with it.

  4. Saw it today at goodwood and oh my it’s definitely even better in the flesh! There are a few bits that are a bit disappointing on the interior and the whole care feels a bit mainstream. But I have to hand it to them it’s a corker looks fantastic. The price is frankly a bargain when compared to the new Maserati MC20 which was my favourite car of the day.

    one thing I did pick up on the door handle looked like it had broken on the passenger side and the salesman was trying his best to hide it.




  5. It looks good and has a bit of Ferrari 458 Italia at the front. But as others have said I am not sure of the whole package, it looks a bit awkward in places and I just don’t think it will be raw enough to replace the exige and evora gt’s.

    maybe when I see it at goodwood I will change my mind however.
