Sneak preview for the Australians? 

Nup. I went there anyway and I just get a message from Zoom that says the host is having another meeting.

Must be the 'Meeting before the meeting',

Jensen Button is there and he's driving. It's raining 'til 6pm then cloudy afterwards for a couple of hours.

Damp track = more sideways fun - oh yes.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

And I also just had a look at the Configurator to see if anything else was awry.

Nup. Just looks like the countdown clock which went 0 here at 7:30pm.

3:50am is the time my alarm is set for. 😴If I hear anyone whinge about how long they have to wait until the launch, please read the above sentence and then think how lucky you are that you will be awake. :P Possibly quite merry, but normally awake.

Excellent!  Is he driving it at Goodwood too?

Whatever that cost Lotus, that is great marketing.

Perhaps part of his new car project deal with the factory.

He’s got at least three relationships with the factory.  Radford, JBXE and as a future Evija owner.  Great to see.

And the tea lady!

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!

A nice wet and/or green track for the first blast around, you'll be able to get a good look at the balance of the car which is more important than the absolute adhesion limit. I'm intrigued to find out what the weight difference and balance difference will be between the V6 and the 4-pot. They might be able to get the smaller engine lower down as well, could be a great little car with that engine in it, even if it doesn't sound quite as nice.

Yeah, that is my belief plus the tuning options will be good - so that is my choice for the track car.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

... plot twist, the Emira was the trailing car all along!

 

(Also, I would have thought your fancy Sony camera would have been capable of a better video quality @Bibs, the screenshot looks like a 90s webcam!                             :getmecoat:)

Woot, now an Evija! Love the colour scheme! (light colour venturi tunnels)

 

And at last, the Emira! Quite a nice first impression 😃
