2+0 Seat Configuration

Recommended Posts

I have yet to see what the rear shelf actually looks like... Just curious...

If anyone has a 2+0 configuration, would you mind taking a wide shot photo and posting it here? I tried a search on here but couldn't find any.. I'm thinking about removing my rear seats, since I don't use them and don't want to damage them, given that stow things on the seat for long trips, like boxes or wheeled carry-on luggage. There's a chance the seats may get scraped or punctured.

The closest I've gotten to a wide shot is this one

Looks like the backing is felt.. I'll probably fashion a custom vinyl cover for my Evora.

Thanks

Scott

Looks different from the first image I found.. perhaps the first image is the felt backing behind the leather seats?

Unfortunately my company's firewall blocks the 2nd pic but popped down to the car park to look at my 2+0 and it has a felt material in the rear which is similar to your 1st pic.

Cheers

I found the seat belts in the back of my 2+2 actually useful for 'strapping in' groceries :dizzy: Haven't tried putting an actual person back there yet, but having air conditioned carrying space is really nice. This way I don't cook the food in the boot before it gets home!

Maybe it depends if premium pack is specced?

This is from the basic spec (no premium pack) 2+0 that Bell & Colvill have... looks felty to me.

Yes, depends of Premium Pack or not.

Leather with it, felt without.

I thought the boot was supposed to be air conditioned too?

I don't see the point of the 2+0 though - for the extra money you'll have a far easier time selling it and I suspect it will retain more value than the 2+0.

not as if you lose anything by having the rear seats.

Pretty much my thoughts aswell.

Blimey! You made me check my figures... I was a little out of date since the price change end of last year.

UK 2+0 £48550

UK 2+2 £49995

Still £1445 extra though, which makes your £332 (at current exchange rate) seem an obvious option to go for. I'm not sure I could justify it when speccing mine in the UK. I certainly won't use them as seats, so I'd rather have the cash in my pocket and accept that I might get £1500 less when I sell it on.

Mind you, I'm now thinking I'll hang on till Sept anyway and see what the announcements are from Lotus at Paris. If a convertible becomes an option I'd rather go for that, then the rear seats become irrelevant!

I would not be so sure, rear seats look more like a work round company car policy than a proper rear seat. That is a new car selling point
