Yours? That's a lovely colour, almost as nice as Motorsport Green! Welcome to TLF, we need to talk about your username :lol:

still surprised about the fact that there are so few green Lotus.

MSG is awesome, Epsom Green very nice.

the Evora is good in almost all the colors, but red interiors/ green exterior with yellow accents is the best combo, but it is like an unicorn

Interesting. That looks pretty much like the paint in my car, but mine is supposed to be British Racing Green, according to the certificate. I guess they changed the names.

I am also curious about the original registration plate of that car. Mine was also an early MY12 and a Lotus press car at the time, AU 61 CEX.

Do you mind sharing yours?

Thanks for the welcome, there is actually a good reason for the user name. Some former colleagues called me "K-man" since I usually sign emails with my initial "/K".
"Cayman" looks better and, in fairness, I almost bought a Cayman S before deciding on the Evora ;) 
(Add an apostrophe between n and S and the Porsche would read "Cayman'S". Childish but hard to resist...)

Thanks for the detailed reply. Your car looks great and in good company in that video. To add some confusion Lotus’ own paint code for my car is C155 (Racing Green Metallic). Mine seems to be the second and last of two 2012 LHD EVORA S in Racing Green Metallic and it was a LHD EU press car, so I guess they were close in the production line. Mine was used in Italy. Here is a link to it appearing in an Italian blog detailed test, including some race track video and footage.

Apparently it’s an Evora looking shell over a race car. Not sure if true.

Yes it's true and very common for a race car to have a road car shell in lots of different series, e.g. BTCC in UK...

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

You are more than welcome to join us on our Alpine tour in September. Then you can compare the two cars side by side 🙂 Cayman is joining that one. Listed among RoW and not Events:

Oh. That is very kind of you. I feel honored for the invitation. 🙂

Early September is a bit tough for me because of family commitments, but I will really consider it and see if I can arrange things Taking the Evora to the Alps again would be nice and I would love to drive there in convoy with you guys.

I custom built a model for Cayman last Autumn. Using a Bburago model in 1:24 as a basis. The LOTUS letters on the rear clam and the Evora badge are very small in 1:24...

great work - funny if the model is out of metal and the "big" one out of plastic - normally its the opposite ....;-)

(as the original model came in light blue I had to paint the rims only on mine...:)

OK there is only 2 shots of EVORA's in this video. I did this event last year expensive but fun

A Link to this years Times http://racing.natsoft.com.au/638823718/object_691743.83e/View?13

As a comparison the Bathurst 12 hour full race cars are doing 2minutes 04 Slowest being 2:15 so the Quickest Street registered LOTUS on the LOTUS only day was 2:20
