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.

@Rahl - is that Ithaca Verde?  Your car looks stunning. Very nice.

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!

That's the attitude Jason. Can always wrap it, you are a YouTuber after all ;)

Bah, I'm just a regular guy man, nobody special a hobbyist, that isn't even sure how any of it occurred anyway, I've a face for Radio, and Look a bit like Uncle Fester, I don't consider myself a real YouTuber.  On a serious note, I had come here to learn more about the Brand and the Product, with no intention of self promotion, I'm fascinated by it.  I'm just a Driving Enthusiast, a working class guy that likes a cold pint and a book.  I'm actually sorry that even came out, on here.  I'm on many auto forums, and I try to not talk about it. 

On an aside I have no intention of turning me buying a car into an event on my channel.  I just want the car, I'm not sure it's even relevant 

But seriously whatever they get I really want for my own purposes, . 

As long as it's a proper manual, they can put balloons, bunnies and butterfly graphics on it at this point, my patience for waiting is waning, and while I try to give a fair and impartial perspective, I think track days will open up again and at bare minimum more accessible then they have been, I'd like to go play.

 

In short?  I want to go wreck some corner on a track, and I think that's the lady to do it for me.

 

(I'm excessively long winded, I apologize, I type and speak in a stream of consciousness fashion )

Jason. Looked at your video and I have to say I really, really enjoyed it!

I liked your "Porsche Guy" and his attention to detail showed that actually, where it REALLY matters, Lotus DOES do the detail really, really well - QC green marks to confirm Torque settings and quality suspension as standard.  Yes it does not have loads of cupholders or other totally irrelevant shite that adds nothing to the DRIVING enjoyment or thrill (but yes, if you go to McDonalds or Starbucks drive throughs I know you want these things).

Keep going my friend. I've subscribed and look forward to the next vids.

I went for a drive last night. 240 miles to nowhere (a big loop on roads that God made for driving). I didn't need a cupholder and other superfluous (to me - my satnav system is there for the speed camera sites only, never for the "sounds") shite like "good ICE" - as I had the windows open and the exhaust flap wide open as the car was in RACE mode. 

If you ever come to the UK, come to Scotland and we can go out some of the best driving roads (and quiet roads) in the world!

Great vid bud.

Wow that's a big compliment,  I'd love to come to Scotland,  and honestly I'd love to drive the UK, in anything.   I really, really,  enjoy driving. 

 

In a car like that, the pleasure is the connection between the driver, the car and the road, that's the magic the moment of meditative nirvana,  and I said it already.   Lotus does THAT like nothing else.   I dont understand the fuss over cupholders or even the radio, in a drivers car.  Seems to me to be sn irrelevant thing. 

 

I tried to remain unbiased in that series, until my regular viewers noted that I didn't give my opinion on whether or not I'd buy it.  So I answered with another video.

 

Bill is a great guy, and I was pretty surprised that he loved it, even through his bias, for Americans Lotus is a thing of rumor, good or bad.   Even for me the buyer difficult to find, people dont know what they dont know,  its not a Porsche,  or anything else, it's a Lotus 

 

I'm flattered and embarrassed, and I am, truly bit by the bug of that car.

Remember to stop at the Chocolate Factory by the Coulthard museum and make some Truffles! 👍☕

Thank you! There’s some other car stuff on there too (check out the DMC vs 911 film) - issue is it takes ages to make and I’ve not had the energy this year - Long Covid is still kicking my ass! 😬
