Ok. So I obviously have made a faux pas. I had the 16th right. The next bit I mistakenly made into June (06) when it should have been July (07).

So the date is actually the 16/07/2019. I said 16/06/2019. So out of the 8 digits that make the date up I only had one incorrect. An error of only 12.5%. If we take this further, I was only incorrect by 1 out of a possible 12. An error of only 8.3%.

If we now look at that, it is only an incorrect statement of 1.04%.

Only means you would get there early.

At this point Michael I’d like to wish you a very Happy Birthday for early August. 😜

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Pretty much. But when does an edge become a cliff? if it was only 10cm high, there's no issue.

Leave the Aussie alone. We're precious down here. :P

Sounds logical enough?

EV for electric vehicle. Don’t know about the ija though.

Evija This name derives From the Hebrew name “ḥawwah”, which was derived from the Hebrew word “chavvâh”, meaning "to breathe or live, living". The name has religious significance in the Judeo, Christian, Muslim tradition, after the use of Eve as the female companion of the Biblical Adam. Its use as a first name in England began in the 12th Century. “Eva”, popular in many European countries, “Eve” used as an anglicized form of Gaelic Aoife "radiant, beautiful" in Scotland and Ireland and “Evie”

Hebilla, which in Spanish sounds identical, means belt buckle or hair slide... who said that choosing names was easy...?

That just sounds awful, can’t  believe they would use such a bad name.

i like Excalibur as it will be the ultimate weapon and otherwise they should keep it simple and god for Electra or Elekta

My repost from Leven Lotus, another teaser for the 130, appears to have disappeared. Makes a nonsense of my Mmmmm comment. 

Did someone make a cock up? Any ideas @Bibs?

I didn't see the post mate, sorry.

The 'J' is silent by the way in that word, it's pronounced as 'Evia' as far as I'm aware of such pronunciation.

Sadly that name has already been used. Hardly the ultimate weapon though

On an related note, has anyone on here received their invitation from Lotus to the swanky Type 130 launch event yet? It's only 3 weeks away and yet still nothing from my postman. My calendar's filling up fast: if I don't get my invite soon, I might have to commit to attending the dreaded school music evening...

No way as they will want the esprit name to be resuscitated for a much higher sales car (this is a hypercar not supercar..)
