I hope it wasn't Lotus supplying that super tatty 2012 S

Lotus wouldn't own, let alone supply for a review an 8 year old previous model of a car. Wouldn't make any sense. 

88 Esprit NA, 89 Esprit Turbo SE, Evora, Evora S, Evora IPS, Evora S IPS, Evora S IPS SR, Evora 400, Elise S1, Elise S1 111s, Evora GT410 Sport

Evora NA

My new acquisition. Can't believe I've finally got one! 

Are we talking about Racing Green Lotus'?  Here's the most recent one of it being clean, at Caffeine & Machine. 8,300 miles in five months means it's rarely clean! 

Some impressiones from the Nürburgring 26-27.07.20 (driver corse XL Nordschleife) in the third photo you can see the vehicles of my training group there were a total of 20 groups.

Nobody is going to review a GT and not absolutely want one, its unfortunate the rest of their lineup isn't available here.  Brilliant creature from my perspective,

Sorry, don’t like it.

Sometimes, when you’ve nothing nice to say, don’t say anything 😉

 

@HowardRoark I think that looks quite effective, the mirrors might have been better staying black perhaps, at least from some angles and maybe some matching red piping over the rear diffuser to complete the look at the back, though it would would need to be quite thin piping - some other posts on here somewhere have done something similar to good effect too!

But some babies are ugly and so just call it as you see it. The parents will get over it 

If you don't want people calling your baby ugly don't post pictures. That's why I don't post pictures of myself.  😜

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!

What complete and utter nonsense. Really?

I don't think the red is bad at all and actually, what does it matter what I think as long as the OP loves it? It's his car and he has the right to do what he sees fit. No issue here at all on that.

But christ your attitude for me sums up what is wrong with the world these days. Oh better not say out loud we don't like it for fear of hurting their feelings. Nuts.

All he said was he didn't like it. Hardly slagging it off!

By the way OP, I quite liked it but actually though it looked bland from the rear as no red on the diffuser. So the scheme did not look balanced.

I disagree, it is an attitude that says people cannot say what they think. We all have the right to speak our minds as long as we are not being rude, nasty or disrespectful. That post was none of those things, it was just an honest statement of fact. You say to think before saying so maybe you should have thought before you responded as you did. I personally find your rebuke much worse than the original comment and totally unnecessary. But then you may have gathered that.

I don’t like it either would be a knightmare to keep clean - I simply couldn’t have a white one and it’s why I don’t buy white cars. 

My buddy has a white T6 and it’s always sparkly clean - I hate the thought of white - but it looks stonking.
 

That GT looks wicked - love the accents. 

Only here once

That line up is something else @LotusLeftLotusRight - was the first Brooklands outing for me that - first time I saw @CHANGES car in the background and first time I sat in an Evora.

 

here’s to 2021 and a similar outing 🙌👍🍻🥂🍷🥃🍸🍹

And the first time I saw the orange esprit in the background which started my whole esprit dream 

Only here once

Have some stripy GTEs. MB World May 2015.

@Barrykearley Wow was that 5 years ago..   That was when I got a bollocking from the track womble for lighting up the rear tyres on parade laps...  Oh happy days ...  Didn't you do a video with commentary in the old David Coleman style..

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Have you ever owned a white car?  Man do believe it’s hard to keep clean.  It’s actually a LOT easier to keep clean vs dark colors, especially black.

 

I have never liked red wheels on cars.... saw a white GT with red wheels at Gator MS, wow did it look incredible!

I agree @NC25T in general re dirt. My wifes previous pearl white car was easier to keep looking respectable than her current car.

One exception though is height of summer and red and yellow streaks of bugs and their insides. A real bugger 😂🤣 on white.

Ah, seeing the old MBW pictures reminds me I was in that special display area too and those GTEs were gorgeous.  I recorded some grainy dashcam of the on track "parade" laps, which were rather more spirited, and there was a nice pic of mine in the wet.  Did Guy Munday do the live commentary?

Love the GTE but getting even more excited about the orange S1 Esprit ahead...in the smoke haze.

Takes me back to very happy days with my first Lotus.
