Don't know quite how to put this, and amazed that one of the major contributors here has not already done so - some sort of extreme loyalty? - but huge detail by someone very well informed has appeared on the.......um .......place where some go out to play.

"........can buy it if I want to......"     "....guy who saw it after me was an Arab Prince, who arrived in a helicopter, with entourage... "

This by me!   Not the "informer".   Some how feeling rather guilty................. but  someone would have soon.

Someone on S ELOC (who already owns a 720 and has ordered one of the £1m+ Astons) has already sat in it and seen it at length. He recounts his experience and thoughts on it.

You know, reading that thread over their reminds me why I probably spend about 5 minutes a month on it. Pleased for the prospective new owner, but jeez, the negativity is unreal.

What’s the huge detail? An Arab Prince is interested in a new hypercar? That’s exactly the sort of person they need to view the car. 

The significance is completely lost on me too I’m afraid, so please do spell it out for us.

Jonny, I used the words "huge detail" in relation what Lotus themselves have revealed so far. Interpreting some of what 'Jas' has said does depend on having some knowledge of the Valhalla. (Not that I have much.) And taking it (e.g. re the weight) together with comments from others on the thread.  I'm not going to take material from another forum. Must press on now.

So nothing to do with Arab princes then? If the huge detail is what Lotus has revealed then why not repeat it here, many would find that interesting.

Quite a few here know a lot about T130, especially after Goodwood so we can confirm if it is indeed accurate. No great revelations going on in the playground as far as I can see apart from someone giving it the very big I am.

So we are none the wiser about its looks?

I read on tge Evo website that its a cross between a McLaren road car and a LPM1 car. So cab forward design and im assuming understated styling at the front at least

If thats true then would be a bit dissapointed as surely now would be the time to try and standout from the crowd.

Anyways we will all know for sure soon

I just checked the thread on the other forum and the negativity is unreal. I am optimistic.

How can anyone be negative on a new car launch. Surely this is exciting times for any Lotus nut.

Also comparing the Valhalla to the Evija... I guess it is possible to compare to some extent but hum isn't the Vallhalla a downgraded offshoot of a hypercar program versus state of the art Evija. Yeah sure it's an Aston so Aston wins.... Good gosh people!!!  Then again this is the hand Lotus is dealt all the time.

Because on the other site they mostly seem to drive and talk about anything other than a Lotus anyway! So they talk Lotus down to make their German cars look better....

Which is kind of ironic, unfortunately. 

Lotus has never been about maximum power.

Wasn’t everyone expecting crazy power given the price level and figures that nearest rivals Pininfarina Batista and Rimac Concept 2 are quoting? Name a hypercar that doesn’t have crazy power.
