@Screem how is your car progressing? do you have a collection date yet?

I’ve Not got an official date as yet but was told by the factory back in early feb that it would be ready to hand over to sales some time in March. I’m Getting pretty excited now so hopefully won’t be too much longer  😉

Going off what the weather has been like the last few months I think I ordered it at just the right time. I’ve not driven my 380 for the last 2 months  by far the longest I’ve gone without use in the last 18 months!

12-18 months but they are only making them when ordered. Dealers can’t order them to put on forecourts is what I was told by a few ppl. Hence 410/350 being all over autotrader etc.

Hey buddy, how is the car coming along. Are you having to wait till lock down is reduced to collect the car or have Lotus agreed to deliver it to you?

Car was delivered to jct Leeds the night before lockdown. 
They are still in shut down at the moment. A bit frustrating but at least is something to look forward to post corona. 👍🏻

I think it’s something silly like 107db once the valves open. 

will report back on what the track exhaust is after snetterton on Wednesday. It is so much quieter than my 350 exhaust.

That was static. At goodwood on a 105db day the guy just laughed but allowed the car on provided they short shifted.

I'm surprised @The Pits hasn't been along and made you an offer for it. He loves the MSG and that would look superb in his garage next to his GT430!!!

Very very nice car that 430 CUP, colour is just superb.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Looks absolutely stunning in yellow Steve  congrats on the purchase. I did Oulton park again on Friday and the car performed faultlessly.

I’d recommend to get it on a track day to really see what is capable of. It’s something else   😉

Thank you guys.

It's solid yellow (C206).

Was a bit unsure whether to take liquid yellow instead but I think it was the right decision for me.

Glad I found this thread guys - I’ve had my 430 Cup nearly 9 months now and thought I was the only one who was having the issue with the confounded rubber valance at the front coming off ! Love the car though
