Very few cars looks this good in yellow!  Its my favourite colour anyway so I'm a bit bias.  Nonetheless - amazing car, I hope you have many many miles and years of happy driving! 🙂

Congratulations - great looking car - I'm a big fan of the non-"black-pack" cars (wasn't one in my price bracket/available when I bought).  There aren't many around either, so that in itself is awesome :)

Your journey seems to be not atypical, in that you almost stumbled in to ownership (knew the brand, not the cars) and not in a bad way!

Welcome to TLF, and enjoy the car.  Ownership just get's better with time!

Nice colour choice. I'm with Dave too, non-black pack is rather nice on the 400 and quite rare.

The original owner asked for a few custom bits to be done at the factory. He had the sills part of the black pack done, as well as the lotus lettering on the back. The centre section of the spoiler colour-coded too.

I really like the way he specced it. I'm told it's a 1 of 1 paint job wise.

Thanks Jay. Not knowing much about Lotus cars, I watched most of your videos to get to know the brand. They are a valuable resource for me and others. Cheers for that :thumbup:

Glad to have helped Bob. I saw your car last year when I was filming near Silverstone. Very good choice.

Welcome @Bob Booker great colour choice, I had an Exige S in that colour combo!

Now I have to ask. As my head office is in Bucks and I drive past a house with a set of gates identical to yours when I am down there. You aren't near Princes Risborough are you?
