  2. 10621 is in Belgium since 2010. Not planning on selling and the original wheels and tires are safely put away, not selling those either. I want to keep the car 100% original and selling the wheels would be a bad idea, don't you think ?

    Evora F1

    No : http://suchen.mobile...de&pageNumber=1 And some 15 more for the US. http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f170/gp-edition-evora-s-106959/#post1652065
  4. Yes, I know that, officially it isn't though. The same for the S brake calipers in red, you want black, you get black. But not officially. In fact, at the premium paint price you can order almost any color you like. Porsche viper green or turquoise blue are great colors on the Evora.
  5. It's that same car from the German autoshow, so yes Sienna Brown it is.
  6. Agreed on the wheels, the car looked horrible with them. It destroyed the magic. I didn't say anything to the dealer about it as it was a factory demo car. So it was not his spec to begin with.

    MY12 Evora

    Good choice ! With red calipers ? When is the delivery foreseen ?

    MY12 Evora

    Aha , you are the lucky one with the total loss I had seen your car for sale some time ago but when I saw it at FKM I did not realise it was yours. I think Autumn bronze with the black sport interior with red stitching would look good if you get the car with the red calipers. That will tie the inside and outside together. You could also ask for silver stitching if you would prefer, choice between red, yellow and silver according to this : Maybe this can give you a rough idea:

    MY12 Evora

    That Viper Green looks soooo good !! A few weeks ago I asked my dealer what the cost would be for this PTS color and it turned out it is the same price as the 'premium paint' option. Very reasonable. Love it but think will go with Ardent red anyway, maybe I am brave come order time and do something wild . I can't wait for MY14, that is too far away, I am ordering fall / winter next year for a spring '13 delivery. So a MY13 it will be and honestly, I hope and suspect MY13 will still look the same. The only 'issue' I still have is the manual A/C , hope MY13 gets the auto A/C function.
  10. Mr. Bahar loves it when a plan comes together. This guy is making it happen
  11. Seat (ab)used the Porsche name all over the Ibiza a long time ago. Didn't hurt the brand name at all I believe. And this was in the same market. Nobody will ever see these Lotus engineered Youngmans anyway beside the Chinese.

    MY12 Evora

    I guess the same as me, we are hungry for Evora news and wonder the internet in search of. But you are the lucky one, soon you'll have yours and your itch will be scratched. I have to wait 1.5 years still Yesterday I saw a white Evora on the motorway here in Belgium. 2nd time I have seen one 'in the wild'. What a car
  13. Your car looks spectacular ! Don't worry about how to view the pics, it's ok. But if you would have some new ones to share please do as a red Evora is just so beautiful. Some of us have a long wait ahead before we can drive our own Evora so nice pictures are always appreciated !

    MY12 Evora

    That's an old vid of the MY11, pretty sure the '12 would have done better. Lighter clutch+improved gear change should make all the difference on the track.
  15. Wow, that is a good looking Evora. The different shade of white with the stripes are just lovely. What are you waiting for ? :-)
  16. Aha, a deer was the reason for the switch. In pictures I adored Laser blue. Last week I test drove an S and it happened to be Laser blue. Not bad looking at all but not for me. Prefer it on paper. Ardent red for me (I think). My test car:
  17. What color would you get ? Since CO is gone ? Just curious because CO is so extremely good looking. I had a short drive in a '11 S in Laser Blue, not bad looking but think Ardent Red would be my choice in today's offerings. Like Yellow too but my Esprit is already yellow, too much of a good thing ? How much is paint to sample anyway ?
  18. That explains it then. If they don't offer it you can't know about it. A shame because the C6 is all what the old big Cit's are all about and then some. Basalte , 'word in the club' ? do any of you club boys have a C6 ? Because honestly, my satnav works like it should. In fact we are very pleased with the car in general, never broke down in the almost 4 years we have it. Never skipped a beat until recently and that minor mechanical problem was solved quickly. Have 50K on the clock and still going strong. My wife wasn't a fan when I bought it. She found it weird looking. Now she enjoys driving it and the looks have grown on her too. I am not allowed to sell it
  19. So you like Citroën but do know nothing about the C6 ? How come ? Car has everything you mention beside the C matic, are you serious on that one though ? A 3 speed ? (had to google it) V6 diesel 2.7 (replaced last year or so with a 3.0) with a 6 speed ZF auto box. top gear test is a good watch too.
  20. The C6 is a worthy successor. All the things you mention the C6 realized including the iconic shape. it's not the car but the name (badge) you want or what ? Must be otherwise you would be driving a C6 instead of a Merc.
  21. There is much vitriol in there. I wonder why. Jealous ? Ferrari fan boy ? He can't stand DB, that is clear but why ? This sentence says it all : "who has done a great job dreaming up completely impractical plans for the future of the car company" He is not in a position to know this. Stranger things have happened so I still believe the new mgt could succeed. Risky business ? For sure but if they succeed it will be a major coup. As Lotus fans we should hope for the best and give DB and team some credit.
