Random car and/or Lotus related pictures and videos

@Andyww thanks for the info, what a lovely little car!  Was it hard or expensive importing the car over here?  I really like some of the Kei Cars and think they'd make a great little run around car.  Don't want to derail the thread, but if you have the time could start a new thread telling us about the process?  I think it'll be a good read.

Thanks for the effort Mike! I'll ask around specialty stores over here, but not very optimistic...  A colleague of mine has just returned from a trip to Quebec, if only I had known...

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I like the idea of taking a cross-country road trip, and going for a six pack of beer is an excellent excuse to go, but it is just not in the cards right now. 

ermm surely an 8 pack of beer is correct in this situation? 😄

Perhaps, but if it is a good IPA six would suffice.

Thanks for your efforts @calvan. Perhaps it will @Escape (see what I did there?) from Quebec at some point. The best we can do over here at the moment is Ilkley Lotus IPA I think.

No V8 on the can though...

I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)

JPS liveried Senna Mac

If it just wasn't so historically wrong! Almost like putting Lamborghini badges on a Ferrari.

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Captain,  Lotus Airways. We fly lower!

Still looks very nice though,   Just shows how fantastic and iconic the black and gold livery is though,   does not rub me up the wrong way at all,  in fact makes me very proud that someone sticks this on such an expensive and truly unique bit of engineering history in itself   :)

I love the JPS colour scheme,  and it goes on almost any vehicle and looks good,  even motorcycles !   i love the gulf colour scheme also,  sadly it only suits a few motors such as gt40s and the old lemans porkers etc.

I think it works as Senna drove the Lotus JPS 97 and 98 T   and also went onto drive for McLaren , just a combination of the 2 👍🏽

Very sad those days are gone now with the new F1 rules about pit ladies and dress code,  same goes for those race car drivers,  heroes of a by gone era sadly never to be seen again 😪

That was one of the very best motoring videos I have seen period and to get Valentino and Arturo to act in them is fantastic

Interesting the Miura was a one only car that has just resurfaced after a factory restore.

The sound, there is nothing else that sounds like a carbureted V12 on full song.

Thanks for sharing @nello. Pure brilliance that video

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!

You'll probably like the rest of them then - especially the Miura in the snow. Simon Kidston has some amazing stock and deals in some of the finest cars............as well as running the Villa D'este amongst others...............

Ordinarily, I wouldn’t give a Beetle a second glance, hateful things, woefully underpowered, noisy, and just generally awful. At the car meeting this morning and this really caught my eye, I could actually be persuaded with this one. Pale blue heavy metal flake, as are the seats, frankly it’s so bad, it’s good!
