You are 100% right she as a massive audience and the most current YouTube ex F1 driver and world champion as only half the audience she as, I say well done Lotus for doing what the competition have been doing for years, she might not be to every ones taste but this will put Lotus back in the spotlight which can only be good for sales now and more importantly the next few years when we have the new platforms.

I know what you're saying but she's become 'the' name for first looks at hypercars and high-end supercars.

Yes, and she has 'one of them'. And with 'one of them', she can get as many of those as she likes.

I hope it works out well for them but where possible I prefer to see Lotus leading the way rather than following the herd.

The videos do make the car look tiny inside, similar to Exige proportions. If a 5ft blonde has trouble getting her knees under the steering wheel then a well fed captain of industry is going to struggle I’d have thought? Might just be she has the seating position all wrong but I can only go on what’s presented. Very low-rent for a hypercar first drive video but great to see it moving. Obviously hope the car is a huge success and I’m sure there will be many more videos and promotional stunts to come.

From an interview on this topic, I heard them say that the car can jack up the front end for speed bumps etc. Can it also lower for photos like this for example?

The reason I ask is that with the tyres so close to the panels, if you were in any sort of corner and you hit a decent bump etc., isn't there a good chance that the tyre will impact the panel?

Did anyone else manage to get the special edition Road Rat magazine edition 3 that went on sale tonight at 8pm - only 130 copies were printed and they’ve been signed by Russell Carr - see below. I got lucky......anyone else?

Just a question. It has probably already been asked and answered or maybe it hasn't?

When is the first one being finished and who is it going to?

Does anyone know?

I believe the first car will belong to the Chairman of Geely and he'll get it in the middle of 2020.

Does anyone know when we're going to get a proper, written up, road test of the car?  I've been scouring the internet and set up all the appropriate "google alerts", but not seen anything yet...

When the car is ready to be driven, I'm sure there will be plenty of road test but I'd imagine they won't be until a short way into 2020.

Let’s hope they pick up a fair few deposits. I wonder how many firm orders have been booked so far?

I heard they picked up 15 at a single US event.  Pretty impressive to be honest.

I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.

I just saved it as well. The sheer size of the vent that goes through to become the taillight centre is just awesome. I had also never noticed until just now how abruptly the rear quarter panel ends after the wheel so that you see the rear shape from the side. More awesomeness!

Is it going to be in RHD as well and is there going to be ANY that make it to Australia? I though I had read that it was only going to be in LHD? I might have been dreaming about that though. 😴

It is on the Australian website, but I don't know if that means that any are going to get here.

It really is a seriously gorgeous car. :wub:

(now I just need to have a seriously decent win on lotto)
