    Elise Sport 220 NightFallBlue, very rare.
  4. Found : Ultra-efficient and lightweight two-piece brake discs save a further 4 kg
  5. Elise S 220, the last one 😀 How much are they lighter ? 🤔
  6. I would like to know if the two piece high performance brake discs from Lotus (option) are lighter than the standard one ? Is it the 'J-hook' brakes ? 😊

    Lotus launches the new Exige Sport 410

    Probably, in six months or maybe at the latest at the beginning of next year, the Exige 350 will be replaced by the Exige 400 with the engine of the EVORA 400. Without all the options of the 410, it will probably cost little more than the 350 but hardly more.

    Any more info about the EU price ?
  12. For the V6 DS4, it's false, there is no Toyota ou Lexus car which use it in EU. You find it only in an Hybrid version, not alone. In France, which is the main market for Lotus in EU (Before the Brexit, after, i don't know), in 2018, you have to pay an Eco Tax of 7073€ fo a new car (In 2017, 5340€), in 2019, you will have to pay as expensive as a Lotus V6, 10.500€, due to the WLTP cycle. The bracket is not 200g but 185g in 2018. (191 in 2017) and sure more less in 2019. The 4L with compressor is less enjoyable as the V6. I know both, There is no comparison. In a Toyota Camry, i've read that the V6 DS4 emission is 214g but the a Camry is more heavier than the Lotus. In fact, very rapidly, about the 4 cylinders compressor, you will to pay the same taxe than the V6 and putting compressor in a central rear-engined car is not also the best way to get reliability. May be Lotus can use the new Toyota Engine generation : "Dynamic Force Engine" but go on with the same range of engine will be a mistake. May be i'm wrong, i don't know, but for sure Lotus must do something about the engine before 2020. When you see below, you wonder why they do nothing (before beeing purchased by Geely). Last thing I don't undertstand : Why Lotus always sells cars (410//430) that are too noisy for the major part of tracks in EU ???
  13. Some years ago, i've read that this engine need a bespoke to be full compliance with the EU emissions régulations. But you have a new version for 2017, i don't know, may be you don't need a bespoke. Sure, it would be nice in a Lotus Exige. I drove all the Evora, from the 280 NA to the EVORA 400, and my best "souvenir" is the 280NA, very nice car to drive, the handling and the engine were very enjoyable for a street usage, for me the best Evora for playing on the B-road. Even an Exige with 280 NA V6 Engine would be nice, very light without an hard suspension. You could get a very light car with all this new "superb" carbon parts. Even if it should be more expensive, no competitor exists with this kind of features, adding the new gearbox shifting. I think about a new "Dino 246 GT". Lotus could do something new with old parts but in the way the world is living, looking for more Eco-friendly solutions. For sure, trust me, I would purchase this car,very light and compact.
  14. Global competitor yes but do they own a V6 ? No, do they want to make one in the next year ? No. Do they are able to give their own technology for the two next years, surely no. So yes, i beleive that Lotus can use the toyta technology. Some years ago nissan makes a deal with toyota to use their hybrid technologie on the US market. So, yes, it's possible.
