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.

Beautiful @Yan. So much better without (in my humble opinion) the chav rear spoiler!

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!

They all had big wings. I know I sold them for a living! You know you can chip them up....a lot!

The mk1 ZS v6 4 door had a bigger 'shelf' than mine, but the mk2 cars often had a small appendage that one could hardly call a wing. Mine is still on its original belts had it since 2004....must get them done some time. So what can you chip the zs 180 up to?

Someone mention big wings what about this beauty, British built,

The door handles look rather familiar. Must be tricky to open the boot?

Probably not quite as fast as the average lotus evora though.

It's obviously been custom built for this camping trip. Makes an excellent mobile dinner table. That's British engineering at it's best!

The wing stops them bursting into flame when rear ended. Great design feature that!

If I had the big wing I think the bogans around here would vandalise my car!

It stands out enough as it is. Aussies generally dont like ostentatiousness. Even though we had a guy named Austentatious back in the 80's!

Don't forget the Wolseley fireplace/grille on the front, for extra understeer.

 

My God those cars were beyond crap.

From the position and angle of the wing on that "John Player Special" (cough) I'd say it makes a good picnic table for camping but serves no other purpose.  In the late '70's a friend had a 911 Turbo (Model 930) and the huge wing on that made a great picnic table at race meetings. (Stuck out further than the rear bumper so if he reversed clumsily the wing hit first - great design!)

I lost my enthusiasm for wings when I read Adrian Newey's book "How to build a car" - early on he had a downforce-to-drag ratio of about 2:1 but improved that to over 3:1 later ... so whatever downforce your big wing is producing you can expect drag to increase by 1/3 of that if you are lucky, or 1/2 if the design is not refined. Controlling air under the car produces better gains but doesn't get the "look at the big wing" response from the schoolboys.... and you'd have nowhere to put your can of beer ..😉

Thanks for photos ..  roads in Suffolk are a bit mucky and it was raining. It was clean when I set off, 7 miles later it was like that ....

and that's the Launch Edition Evora that Allan put on Page 1 of this thread, still going strong.
