Your Lotus "Must Have" list


Recommended Posts

With several new models having come out in the last couple of years thought I'd see how many of them would rate.

 

You only get to choose 5 Lotus from ANY era and cost is no option (lets assume a genie pops up and gives you a 5 car selection). The cars would be perfect and reliable so this is about desirability not what you think would be more reliable. Number up in order of preference. Here's mine to kick you off!

 

1. Exige S (new v6 ) Possibly Cup

2. Evora S

3. Esprit Sport 350

4. Lotus Sunbeam

5. Lotus Cortina (pref Mk 2 but Mk 1 is fine).

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.

Just came back from lunch to check who had contributed - love the XI photo.

I went to fill up the Esprit and when I came back from the kiosk there was an

elderly lady crouched by my front wheel. She said 'I'm sorry but I was looking at

the logo to see what car it was- my son has a Ferrari but I like this- it's much rarer!

Something always happens when I stop for fuel...

What, no black-and-gold John Player Lotus Europa Special that MJK had a hand in getting to production?

1) Elise GT1 in this livery, or the grey of the street car.

2)Lotus 30/40, not the best racecar, but super low and gorgeous.

3)49 can't decide between the one shown below or the later 49c.

4)Exige (torn between S1 and Sport 260 and S V6)

5) Evora S 2012+ or maybe a GTE if I can have one.

Normally I would put an Esprit X180-R on the list, but I already have my Esprit, and that is getting pretty close to an X180-R without the roll cage... and I get to drive my friend's X180-R's so that keeps me happy.
