How did you hack into my Instagram account to get my picture 🥴

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?

Dear god that car is gorgeous 😍! The more pictures I see and the more angles see the more I'm impressed by the design.  I've said it already but well done Lotus!

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?

Yeah, I got one, I expected them to have gone in an instance. I couldn't find at first, until I created an account and logged in, then the special edition issue, appeared for sale.

They sold in less than 5 mins - they didn’t come on until 8.07pm and sold out before 8.15pm. I bet they wish they’d printed 1300 instead of 130😄

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 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)

Another thing which may have been answered somewhere and I have not seen it yet, has a CD figure been given for the car?

I just went and looked at pictures of the new (now old I suppose) Ford GT and I have to admit that it is pretty impressive how they got the airflow through the back of the car considering the whopping great V8 in there.

I understand that it would have been much easier with the Evija, but hats off to Ford I think.

The intention was definitely to sell some to Oz but unclear if it would be LHD. Seems like they had few indication of interest from there at launch.
