What does David Beckham and the new Lotus Certificate of Provenance have in common? They both come in a posh box!  Lotus can have that for their advertising campaign!

Stanley knife in the pocket, Ouch! Hope you remembered to retract it. Have you ever forgotten?

The CoP looks great, a real collectors item. I agree with Graeme about the owners manual folder.

The other thing I would like Lotus to do is a decent owner’s manual folder, in leather with the model number and lotus badge. 

Seconded, maybe an area for receipts etc.

I'm kinda disappointed that it's not actually @Bibs golden onesie!

The CoP looks very nice, I definitely be getting one later in the year - do we know if it's a limited run thing or will be around for awhile?

They do look a nice package.

I know they are not cheap cheap but I dont think they are too much.

They look a nice gift one can buy for oneself or as a pressie.

I will take the plunge, endure the reaction, and express the first dissenting view on the new CoP package.

I agree that it is an attractive lot of trinkets provided and likely a step up from the old Certificates but in my, admittedly subjective, opinion it is vastly overpriced. Part of that view is that I really question the durability of a cardboard box over the long term unless you just want to put it on a shelf and leave it there. So I shall not be rushing off to order one, much less three of them.

Having said that, if others will get pleasure from it and it generates a bit of revenue for Lotus Cars so much the better.

Mike.

PS. Now watch my wife go out and order one for Christmas, thinking it is something I will treasure. Best have a word about it.

Richard from SSC rang back to say they are still working out costs and get back to me in a day or so. The package includes a provenience certificate even if you have one

I agree @calvan the price is a bit steep which is why I'm not rushing out to buy one right now. The problem I have now is how to make the other half aware of it before Christmas :secret:.

Ceramic coat ftw :lol:

To be fair, I did wonder how much grief I'd get for that!! :scared:

Carelss abandon of the paintwork with box placed on top and 'dragged' no less, 'DRAGGED' across the paint as it was rotated. 🤣 I think you may need some retraining to correct your wrong think.

Nice offering tho and thanks for the video. 👌

Mike no issue if you don't think it's good value. It's about the cost of a nice meal with the wife which lasts a few hours and then it's gone. Just a memory.

I think it's a nice package personally. No one is forcing anyone to buy it after all.

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!

You must take your wife to some nice restaurants @C8RKH, I have never spent £170 on a meal with the other half!

Be nice to have but just can't justify the cost still being furloughed, and already having a COP.

Dare I say if Bahar had done this during his upmarket ramping he would have been slated?
