I think it would be just far to slow. 0-200mph In over 10sec. Who would buy that!!

Nope, that's just a wide angle lens on a crappy phone distorting the back end. I have some gorgeous 8K(!) RED camera footage here showing that exact yellow car looking nicely proportioned at the back. And no, I'm not going to post any of it here!

Phew... that's good, the long tail distortion doesn't look nice to my eyes.

I love it and really admire the effort that’s gone into it. I really do believe that the Evija will be much admired for many years to come......Lotus have played a blinder!👌😎

I'm planning to pop along to Stratton Motors next Friday to take a peek at the Evija. I have a theory about cars in photos and real life:
Dull cars look better in photos/on video than in real life.
Exciting cars look better in real life and photos/video just can't capture the drama.

Having acted as expert witness in more than one multi-million case between big outfits - really big, much more so than Williams and Lotus (though perhaps not bigger than Geely in one case) - I can vouch for how juicy the details can be that each party unearths from the dirty laundry baskets of the other through the stages of the formal "disclosure" process.

When purely commercial parties are involved, whether details "leak out" likely depends on whether it is in the interests of both parties to remain silent. One or the other may judge that there is no reason for silence on their part.  From the fact that a fairly descriptive outline has emerged - the Telegraph also had the story - it would seem that the latter is the case.  The sequence of the news report and the statement by Lotus would also seem to indicate who did what here, assuming that it was one of the parties, rather than an extremely well connected reporter. 

Could be fireworks to come!

Pictures don't do it justice. Quite an astonishing piece of kit. I did fit but it was very awkward getting in an out despite a bigger door opening and more space than my Esprit. Then it dawned on me, left hand drive. 15 years muscle memory wiped out. Leading with my right leg felt most peculiar. So I'll pass I think, if there's no right hand drive 😄

I know ... LHD only!

 

I don't want to sound unsupportive of my favourite car company by far, but there's a certain sour taste left in the mouth when the phrases 'British hypercar' and 'LHD only' end up applying to the same motoring product.
