Another one bites the dust


Recommended Posts

Lotus are giving away another Evora to another charity. Just so you know.

Well done Gino, another great PR coup for Lotus... :huh: I'm not publishing the story on the homepage.

Well it's certainly not worse looking than the Naomi version :sick:

What is interesting though is that this is probably the first look on the interior improvements.

I like the black aliminium bits and buttons (may perhaps even improve the visibility of what buttons are pressed) and the new leather inserts and piping look quite good as well (ghastly colours ignored).

Picture the scene, early morning, the night after, tie in pocket, unshaven, content of stomach still in the stomach, then you open the door and get into that,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, :sick:

I threw up in my mouth. And read the press release with all the higlighted QUeen tracks....no wait...someone couldn't sqeeze more than a few in and then thinks its funny to add in GA GA and Radio.....

Please don't try your hand at PR Gino.....infact the whole press release seems to point toward a new car being destroyed by fire or poor design....oh wait...it looks hideous. You're right, another lovely car has bitten the dust!

The corniest PR piece I have ever read. However at least Brian May now has a Lotus link and we can stop scratching our heads at that one.

This has not rocked me.

Now looking forward to solving the Baldwin link, with the Baldwin family edition of Evoras.....a set of four cars which most people have sort of heard of but get them mixed up with one another, and they only do mildly well in their chosen field and only appear in B list events.

Yuk. And I thought I would like all Lotus cars. Not this one thanks very much!

Is it true that Lotus were once "Champions of The World" ?.....

And now we need a Urban Farming Lotus... and an old sailors special edition......

Now do you think your thighs will burn on the hot leather seats if you wear knickers like Fredy ?

Honestly.... it's no worse than the classic red interior with green paint and a yellow stripe... I LOVE that look but let's face it that combo is total trainwreck on paper at least!

Ok, so it's scraping the barrel of plausibility but it's in a good cause and Lotus could probably do with one less Evora in the car park! Good luck to whoever buys it.

ps At least it doesn't have moustache! :rambo:busted%20cop.gif:zorro::pirate:

pps Although you CAN buy one!!!

....or the "Val Doonican", available in forty shades of green. with built-in pullover hooks, pipe rack and drivers seat with integral rocking motion. What car would that be now ? I have to say, I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

There was a nice picture taken at the event of Freddies Mother standing next to the car, reminded you he was actually a human being, a son to his parents, a brother to his sister, a real person. Not a made up cartoon character. Not sure how much it went for but it was for a very good cause.

Am I blind or is DB not in a PR shot for the company?

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
