it might be the first Chrome Orange roadster but it won't be the last - it looks fantastic! 

 

Hope it's that sunny when I pick mine up in a few weeks...

Have you gone for Chrome Orange?

 

I know Jamie is delivering another one on Saturday, and he said my pictures on SELOC / Facebook have resulted in a few more orders!

 

I should be getting commission.. or maybe a free service.. ;)

No, I've bought a coupe in Laser Blue from Silverstone. I've always had a thing about blue for a sports car, but I still think Chrome Orange looks great, particularly when complemented by the black roof and wheels. I was at Hethel last week and saw one...maybe it's the one you mentioned?

Hope you love every mile of it!

That could very well have been mine - I've just had confirmation from Jamie that the car is complete, will arrive at B&C on Friday and be ready for me to collect on Saturday as planned.  :thumbsup:

Excellent! Hope you have a blast. I still have two or three weeks to wait, but I'm taking the pills and haven't cracked yet..!

I don't know how you folks have managed to wait months - I only pulled the trigger a few weeks ago (taking a car that Jamie had in pipeline, fortuitously close to the spec I wanted), and it's been a hell of a long few weeks!! Saturday can't come soon enough.

You jammy expletive! Ordered mine on 31st January and expect to get the car around 20th June if I'm lucky...dangerously close to five months. Gonna be worth it though...h

Heh - I can beat that - Mid december purchase, early July delivery.

 

Pity Australia is such a long way away, the wait has been killing me.  There's only so many times I can re-watch reviews of it on Youtube ;)

Ordered mine on December 15, has been ready in Hethel on monday this week, now shipping to Austria....another 2 weeks....this has been the longest 6 months of my life....

Are they buffering according to colours? A Midnight Blue EXG has been delivered Last week and i have also Seen many Midnight Blue deliveries in Forums in the Last week, or is it just a coincidence?

Sorry to hear of how long you've been waiting, chaps :(

LOL - I thought it was just me hoovering up all the video and written content I can find. I'm nearly bored of the Chris Harris video now after a few weeks, you must be suicidal!!

What a gorgeous car. I've gone for a Laser Blue coupe, and I know I've made the right choice for me...but man, that's a head turner! Have you noticed any heads turning??

I feel sorry for you for the wait, and also (probably) for the price. I used to live in Sydney (and will always love it!) but I know how much more some cars cost there...is that still the case even though the AU$ is so strong??

Magnificent! Many congratulations. Loved the interior too, the cockpit just screams 'drive me!'

 

I saw it yesterday at B&C as it happens, I was having my car serviced. On such a perfect evening I would have been tempted to swap! Absolutely one of the most fun cars available at any price.

 

All you need now is a nice private plate to finish it off  ;)

Thanks all, and, yes, I noticed the odd head turning, including a teenage boy videoing on his phone my car, rather than the red Ferrari in front of me. Now that was a damn shame I need to run it in!!

Although I had thought about a full Cup look for mine I decided that it was probably a bit too much for the std S. So I just had the rear partially wrapped as there was just too much WHITE....the other colours seem to get away with it better I think.

Hi Stubox,

 

very very nice!  Did they cut the vinyl in situ?  How did they do the Lotus letters?

 

I agree, that black rear is FANTASTIC (and a must-have imho).

Hi, part cut off car and finished in situ. Was debating getting it sprayed but went this route just in case. Not an easy job and was going to wrap around number plate area but ran out of time.

They did the letters for me, just scanned in the originals and cut onto white gloss vinyl. They're in Kent so when you get your car use it as an excuse to run it in :) .

After almost five long months my car has finally arrived at the dealers! Picking it up on Tuesday. In the meantime they sent me this...
