    Lotus Evora 400

    actually with all that metallic grey (exige and evora) and a frenchman with a german accent i think its more to do with the way they want to be perceived. ie seriously or Germanic....a little boring but secure. god knows.... have to say, give me anything but a frenchman but hey, beggars cant be choosers. at least he does his best to speak and act like a german.
  4. JP the GT4 wont touch GT3 sales.... one is a marketing exercise the other is the real deal. I know you arnt keen on GT3s but the latest incarnation is something else technically. besides if you can afford a GT3 you wont consider a GT4. why would you? its inferior in every way ..... but has a manual box. the gt3 is still the main event.
  5. arggh if only i still had my old s1 exige .... if you need another lotus i can come in the v6 exige.... should be a fun day
  6. shall i bring a 4c along and risk a public lynching lol ? or i could bring my semi open wheel single seater .... ahem .... dihatsu midget pick up .... to get a laugh ? or is this just a lotus thing?

    frankly you would have to be mad to buy a cayman over that .... i hope the whack that rev counter as a single central console on the exige400 lol

    Lotus Evora 400

    dont take this the wrong way but that's because the 4c was designed to be as light as possible from the get go. the evora wasn't... i know, my old man has a 4c.... theres nothing in there that could get any lighter without massive expense!
  9. i shall try my best to get to duxford... exige v6

    Lotus Evora 400

    it will be quicker than the estimate.... that's there to get any others out there to commit to showing their hands before they have to - if there is anyone out there! porsche knew the fastest time the gt4 can set some time ago ....

    hope not, any 'tested' color for MS price was a serious edge lotus had. bad move imho

    Exige 400

    looks top notch CB !!!!! love it !!!!!! JP, im old fashioned i need a BIG analogue rev counter and a red light that tells me when im running out of fuel plus i use AIM on my kart so bit too much cross over for me lol the adjustable steering would be so useful as i cant H&T properly without whacking my upper leg on the steering wheel as it stands.... if they could get the pedal box back by 1 inch that would be really useful too,
  14. it will be very quick, and i expect it to beat its suggested lap time round the ring. its the porsche way. would be surprised if it didn't have 400 or more bhp in reality too.... its a nice fat target for the exige400 to swat, cant see the evora400 getting anywhere near it but who knows...
  15. sorry im really struggling with this guy, hes starting to sound like a sound bite sales man.... first he says the Evora400 will be the fastest sub £100k car on track and now to top that he says the following about a car that's 2 years away:- Gales also says there has been demand for a successor to the 2-Eleven, and so one is under way for a launch less than two years from now. It has much more power than before and a new design. It will be by far the most expensive Lotus, but, with 400bhp to propel 900kg, "it will be the fastest road car around the Nürburgring," he bravely promises. in addition, not sure if any of you have sat in a 4c but hes comparing apples and pears. the 4c is massive compared to the elise inside and out (which is the chassis he keeps comparing it to as apposed to the evoras)....so that should be 52kgs vs 116 kg ... v odd...

    Exige 400

    i would be very surprised if they threw more money at development of the front end of the chassis and lowered the sills. a) its an exige, its part of the appeal and b) that chassis is at the end of its cycle (i assume the next gen car will use the a modified evora front end as well as back )... however, the interior maybe an easier one to work on, im not a big fan of the current binnacle or plastics used they show their age - must be 10 years old. the 400 will be significantly more expensive,ergonomically there's nothing wrong with it but i think they are pushing the envelope with the quality of that interior at the current price. please god i hope they don't touch the styling, no doubt RC will have to put his oar in though and imvho i see the v6 exige as the best looking modern lotus with real presence in a long time. wont make any friends on here saying this but all this obsessive shrink wrapping by RC made things look toyish and cute. the exige v6 on the other hand doesn't look like a toy next to a 458.... quite an achievement considering how small it is ! so whats the difference???? lol can it actually hold 437bhp w heat soak w/o a CC ?

    Exige 400

    bibs you sure? i believe its a completely different SC, so not just a CC and there maybe gbox work too as well as LSD, i believe the rear sub frame of the evora 400 has had a load of lightening work done that could be passed over to the exige too.... if they adopt all the mods into a new exige in 2016 probably better just upgrading the car completely..... wish we could order this car tmrw frankly !
