So long as there is no delay or technical **** up. The semi-final starts prompt just 30 minutes later.

How long does the launch go for?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Is it just me or is there no leaked photo yet? (which I think is great)

If that is the case, this is one well kept secret. :secret:

I never found one. So close now that I have not bothered looking for a while. Pretty sure I will love it

The only photos I’ve seen are the Evora mules.  Spy shots are usually “leaked” in collaboration with the manufacturer so I assume it’s part of the Lotus teaser strategy to not release any.

I remember one of the Emira team saying it was amusing to drive around in an Evora-bodied Emira, as no one knew what was under the skin.

Yes I saw one at Hethel nearly two years ago and by the time I'd realised something was different about it, it had gone.

Just one more day!  has anyone yet received an invite or link to the event?

Just the B&C event. Not the aforementioned event.

I’m doing the Superfans thing so won’t be at B&C.  Will be at Goodwood on Thu and Newlands Corner meet on 18th if you’re at either of those?

I'm at Goodwod on Friday, maybe Saturday morning too.  Newlands on the 18th sounds good. What approx.time?

Are any other dealers doing some sort of event??? So if just B&C - is this watching the launch from a screen in their showroom, followed by an exchange of deposit cheques??

Just watching the same thing as everyone else but with like minded enthusiasts - Limited numbers. Others are surely doing something similar.

I think everyone going is a deposit holder already/only.

It’s from 9am when the cafe opens.  Usually a few early birds before that.  People start drifting off from 10.00/10.30 depending on weather, cafe queues and other commitments.  I’ll post the event up in the SLEGS regional forum later in the week.

I know several are but all by invitation I think, due to Covid restrictions on numbers.  Watching the live feed, some doing drinks and nibbles.

A proper live feed :)

Anyway, I will be there at B&C Horsley.  Brown shoes, black jeans, Blue Boss Polo, answering to the name of Ade.   If you are there, would be great to chat.

It is invite only - so dont just turn up!

I can't speak for others but, for me, it has worked out perfect.

Newsletter, social media updates, Goodwood launch, invite to dealer special, allowed out in an Exige by myself..  I am VERY satisfied. Looks to ME like it has been coordinated brilliantly.

BUT - this is clearly not the case for all judging by your thoughts.

Sadly not, it was just going out on the test track (after the Driving Academy had finished for the day). It was all very undramatic.

Did you manage to notice any sound difference ? :)

More stringent regs but am hoping Lotus have pulled something out of the bag aurally.

It is to me! :)

The Q&A emails have also been excellent. 

To be fair, I am a multiple deposit holder so if they don't get me right then there is definitely no hope.

 

This is a concern though, I do hear you. I remain worried about the overall ongoing support, servicing, etc, as brought up in another thread.

Only Bentley have matched this service - for me. Didn't get this at Porsche or Ferrari.
