  1. Very nice Neil. Have always thought Titanium was a great colour for the later Esprit’s! Great choice.😎👏🏻👏🏻
  2. Can’t help thinking the new 4 door coupe Lotus Type 133 when it appears, will be styled very similarly to the new Polestar 5…..which I personally think looks very sharp. Tesla (not before time) are about to see some serious competition - their styling is woreful, so should be challenged easily enough!
  3. It’s the large one first….definitely!
  4. Looks like much more recent photo to me….🤔 Recent recreation @Bibs?
  5. Bargain and true investment potential! The wing end plates colour need sorted, same with wing supports and the after,Adecals need to go…..then it will be lovely!😎
  6. Yeah let’s see some photos Neil so we can see which spec it is. There’s 3 V8’s that I know of up here in Scotland and I’ve got the Giugiaro Turbo version👍 Hopefully we’ll get a chance to see you & the car at a meet at some point. Welcome to the world of Lotus👍😎
  7. I personally think the sound is on par with the Evora - a lot of doomsayers saying the Emira V6 exhaust is quieter than Evora 4xx but it sounds pretty damn similar to me👍
  8. It’s Shadow Grey without Black Pack - this is the launch V6 that was at Hethel, Goodwood, Laguna Seca & here in Brooklyn. It just looks darker in the available light here…..
  9. Finished at £86,500 plus £6k commission!👏🏻👏🏻
  10. Looks better here with a a more appropriate steering wheel for one thing…..👍
  11. Go easy Ian and keep it wet!!……said the actress to the Bishop!😳😉
  12. Just as an aside Ian - if you ever think that you’d like your steering wheel to be less shiny, and look as spanking new as the rest of your interior…..use a “magic sponge” on it. They work wonders at taking the shine out of leather whilst leaving an as new (matt) appearance👍
  13. Great work @Mickle👏👏I love the latest Magma Red render you’ve done above…..this would be my own personal spec if I was buying right now, but with red callipers. Lovely😎
  14. There are way too many Yellow’s across too many decades - it’s all part of Lotus fun and just a small part, of what makes them special!😉👍
  15. Norfolk Mustard isn’t a metallic paint though.🤔 Maybe your friends is a different shade of Yellow? Wouldn’t be the first one to be misdescribed by a dealer in an advert…..and the owner then leaves thinking it’s one Lotus colour when it’s another🙄
  16. The Clay model you pictured from the video is painted in Silver which is different to Nimbus Grey. From everything I’ve seen so far, I see Nimbus as more of a Titanium colour instead of Silver👍
  17. Brilliant video and great insight into the design and development of Emira - thanks Harry… never disappoint and more often than not are first out the stalls to educate your audience!👏👏
  18. Badge replacement might not be straightforward bearing in mind the new one is larger than previous nose badges. I like them personally and really like the new lettering & design……a reference to the dawn of a new Lotus era😎
  19. 😂…..the plot thickens🤔
  20. And this (pic below) is what Fire Red does in the sun as it has a gold fleck through it.😎 Magma looks to have more of a subtle silver fleck through it, so I wonder how it will react in the sun?🤔
  21. Love the 641 Ferrari…..surely one of the beautiful F1 cars of all time!!😎 Fantastic model making skills Sir!!👏👏
