  1. Nice one Bibs - great to hear - Newey just designed the Valkyrie - he has not had to engineer it!
  2. Although ACBC is not here - does Mr K approve............that's what I would like to know!
  3. A great move by Lotus IMO - There is a lack of awareness and significance of Lotus given the timespan for the current generation to recognise Lotus of old and the amazing history in F1. One of my sons works on future model for Aston Martin - he has been immersed in Lotus 'folklore' by me so naturally aware of the past given my Esprit has been with me for longer than he has. Reckons the word at AM is a nod of acknowledgment from a sleeping great. I've seen the posts about Chapman not approving due to weight etc. but I don't think Colin could ever had foreseen where the Car industry would be going and the sudden leap in to battery technology we are seeing. Yes the idea was there but until Tesla came along the thought of a battery vehicle to the 60's/70's generation was a Milk Float.............
  4. Looks fantastic - where was the launch held?
  5. Anyone else been following the latest 'goings'-on' with Haas and Rich Energy? Seems William Storey the drinks company CEO really is like David Thieme in more ways than one!

    Nice unusual colour -don't think I have seen that before in an early X180
  7. Was never a fan of those wheels especially in white...........................
  8. Yes the work on the slammed cars is amazing but the look is too far for me on those. The lower the more exotic but there is a limit
  9. Not knocking anything Mark - its your car and it still looks great mate. Bigger wheels always look superb especially with a lower ride (although there can be a limit for me!) And that colour is fantastic. There is also something so period and correct about velour interiors especially in chocolate/brown. I used to love it when they called it Tobacco - conjured up all sorts of images of wealthy magnates - suppose its not exactly PC now - keep going and best of luck with it!
  10. Great work - as per the others - my favourite colours but not sure on the dash and I would have kept the Speedlines - looking forward to seeing the final results!
  11. No it did not make the reserve Steve athough not too far off........... I'm still hoping the family decide to keep it so it can driven by them one day.
  12. LHD No.006 is also currently for sale in Austria -
  13. As per the Classic Team Lotus recent post on FB - Great to see the Belgravia Concours – the beautiful Turbo Lotus Esprit of Peter Boita won the ‘Most Original Car’ award, from a field of 200 cars. A really impressive achievement. The Belgravia Concours is a prestigious classic car event that is held annually in the lush five acre gardens of Belgrave Square in the heart of London. I thought I recognised the car with those white wheel and louvres - its the one featured in Jeremy Walton's Esprit Complete Story Book............ - just found my copy to check! Glad to see its still around and so very nice!
  14. Wonder it Roger kept that Jacket? .................a quick google - Mr K's!
  15. Similar to the often seen press image but a slightly different angle shown on the 007 FB page.............. BTW did anyone else see the 2026 Winter Games are to be held in Milan/Cortina? I wonder if that means the FYEO Skating Rink will get a refurb?
