Really? What a dumb comment to someone who has just bought a car they're clearly very happy with.

Read the forums rules, be nice or don't post - if you wish to ignore that I can help out with the 2nd part. 

Well said

Someone has paid potentially over 50k for a Exige S with red paint and a plaque? Wow! 

It was a genuine limited edition at the time and celebrated the history of Lotus in F1, so for many people, it would be worth a premium as as well as the car, they are joining a small exclusive "club" of owners who I believe to do interact quite a bit.  Who knows it might turn out to be as iconic as the Essex Esprits in 20 yesrs time?

There a lot of things that people are prepared to pay over £50k for today, many of them I truly think people are mad for buying (for instance it would, with a discount, buy you two Wilson Yvette Loudspeakers for your home; or a 50% share in an IWC Portuguese Tourbillon watch, or a new kitchen from Christies or similar, or many VW/Audi run of the mill cars you can have with a different badge for 20-30% cheaper).

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!

Stunning car.

I had my LF1 out on the driveway yesterday, looked beautiful in the sun.

Enjoy the car.

I have to say I agree with the last post. Lovely rear end and o be honest the glass rear window looks amazing still. I actually think I prefer this to the carbon, makes the car look classy (provided the SC is black and engine covers fitted. 👍👍👍

The LF1 plaque is probably the best for open viewing compared to the rest.. 

I was stopped at some traffic lights once and a guy came up, put both his hands on the glass just to take a look inside (while I was in the car engine running etc) 😂😂 🤦🏻‍♂️

Lovely shots!

Whilst I appreciate that the plastic/CF boot is functional (keeping temps down) and purposeful (low weight) I do also agree with the above posts. The glass boot is class and if the engine bay is tidy then it's something to show off;) Enhanced rear visibility is also a bonus:)

Hi Mike thank you, I think when it comes time to sell I will be in my box.

I don’t have the car yet😪, I would like the magazine if that is possible.

I have just brought a car cover but it would be nice to have the right one.

do you have a photo of the cover, I can always sell the one I have.

I would just like to thank the guys on here for their support, I think the

LF1 is worth every penny that I have paid for it.

I am on my way to Scotland today so I called in to Silverstone just to have

a look at the car, of course their is nobody their but I could see the car 🤩.

Terry.
