Picked mine up from B n C today

I know sorry 😐 MotorSport Green with red inserts on seats and centre console. Really rather impressed.

. How come you’re back in a V6 so quickly @Stubox?

Well when I went to change the Evora I’d decided on an Exige , but last second thought as I hadn’t had an Elise and there was one waiting in MSB I’d give it a go. The Elise is really nice with a delicacy the other cars don’t have, plus easy to whip roof off. However I’m a lazy driver and enjoyed years of V6 shove and the Exige is pleasantly thuggish too. So while I’ll miss threading the Elise down the roads I’ll enjoy the grunt more. Certainly remembering my v6s and v6cup they’ve finally got the right power/weight for the Exige . The 475 conversions must be very impressive.

@Stubox it’s not this car up for sale at Sytner Select Warwick is it?

Yep. Fabulous car and had fun with it on track as well as road. Definetly sweet spot of Exige range. Not used it anywhere near enough.
Moved on after 5 Lotus on the trot, but might be back if the new Evija styled Evora based product is good enough.  Increasing number of cars to try and diminishing time....

What did you move on to, and are you happy?

One of these , and yes I am ....but

don’t think I could ever settle with one car , there are far too many flavours to try and I’m not so blinkered that I can’t appreciate other manufacturers products.

Ive thoroughly enjoyed each lotus (Exige V6s , V6 cup, 410 , Elise cup and Evora 410) and driven them across Europe and on tracks. I’m pretty sure I’ll be back in one too- maybe a nice S1 135 or 160 - or maybe the new evija styled hybrid/v6 if it ever appears. 
There’s a lot of cars still to try, but not a lot time to try them in.

Oh very nice!

 You must have thought something was wrong at first with the absence of rattles and wind noise when driving!
 

I am looking for 410 myself, but need the prices to come down another 5-10k really.

did you prefer the evora or exige 410?

Honestly the V6S , so the first one, rattled like a b’stard, around the passenger side roof area. 
And that’s it. None of the others rattled or squeaked (tho a belt squeaked when cold fine hot) no dash rattles, no funny suspension noises. They were all really very good.  Something I never tire in telling those who trot out the usual LOTUS acronym . Engines were oil tight etc ....the 410 is by far the best lump of the bunch , gear change power etc ...only thing it lacked (oddly) is torque , but once bobbing along above 5k it is quite lovely with a great note. It’s worth the etc pennies honestly .

New vantage @Stubox?

Last of the old V8, AMR model- manual , carbon buckets, no silly stripes. Went looking for v12s but still 120+ and doubt they’ll drop. Older v12 model didn’t interest me. Very GT reminds me my Monaro but posher with less tuning options 😁 missed out on the great new AMR deals ask @Sizona 😁
