Could be? Lotus did the same thing with the late S2 Exiges IIRC.

I actually managed to track down pictures of the yellow Cup 250 with the body-coloured aero that I referenced above. It is/was for sale in Australia of all places. Pics for those who are interested:

Three months ago I've seen 2 yellow ones on sale, 1 red one and 1 green one, all in France.

Congrats, and welcome! I'm assuming you ordered the car from SCC? When did you place your order, and/or when was your build date? DId you get any pics of the car during production?

I'm still patiently awaiting mine...though I purposefully asked for a later build-date as I needed the time to get my driveway re-pitched prior.

You mean SSC? Yeah order done end of Feb, I didn't ask for anything special build date. Where do I check for build date? And no, no production photo, didn't really bother me tbh. 

Did you get any hint for the delivery date?

There's something about neon cars that makes them stand out over the other vehicles around.

Collected after having PPF applied, then dropped off for detailing and ceramic coat.

 

Looks great! Its crazy how much the sun changes the colour of isotope.  In the configurator, it looked pretty close to what the front of your car looks like in the first pic and towards the rear arches of the 2nd pic. The pictures you posted from collection day look a lot more "toxic" like IMO.

This colour really needs the sun to pop! Glad I'm in Australia. :)

What parts of the car did you have covered in PPF?

Full front clam, access panel (whale tail under screen), front splitter, barge boards, leading edge of rear spoiler, headlights, mirrors.

And you’re definitely right about how the light changes the colour!

can’t wait to see it in the sunlight once it’s been ceramic coated and shines!

Wow! It does look amazing in that last picture. I tend to prefer shier colours but that is really nice. I guess you will put the PPF to test if you plan to use it mostly as a track-day car. Hope you can enjoy some good miles in it soon. Congrats, Lee!

Obviously mates of yours, interested to know how they get the red carpet treatment from Lotus.

Yes obviously i do do know them, but you have lost me with the red carpet treatment? .Please explain your logic on my post, there is never a mention they have been treated any different from any other FE customer? 🤷

I like their content good luck to them but invites to Emira launch, to Goodwood FOS, chats with ‘Dan from dynamics’ passenger rides up Lord March’s hill are normally very hard to come by. ‘very much invite only’ according to their Emira onboard video. Also talk of getting phone calls from ‘Scott at Lotus’ who sent him pictures of car in build. Not typical FE customer treatment I don’t imagine. Interested to know how they managed this when some other more popular youtubers have been frozen out. As I said good luck to them either way.

Yeah, I caught this. Not typical FE customer treatment for me. I ordered my car in early March, and haven't heard/seen much of anything since. A bit let down by the purchasing process to be honest.

One of the things that motivated me to buy a new Cup over picking up a lightly used car at a significant discount was the anticipation of seeing my personally specified car come through the hand-built assembly line; a truly unique opportunity.

I'm confident now that if I were to be looking at an Emira in the future, it will be used.
