Bloody brilliant. Thank you for sharing I really enjoyed that. There will never again be a time like that in motorsport and boy oh boy did they "drive" those cars. Seeing them drift around the corners, stunning.


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

One of the few YouTubers which I can tolerate, although  very low on Lotus content over the years.  He did a review of the Evora 400 in Nottingham a few years back but you could tell he didn't know an awful lot about the car.

He's good at making videos. He's a lifestyle vlogger not *really* a car vlogger but you can't fault the quality, and he seems like a nice chap.

I'm wondering if this is Geely trying to lift the profile of Lotus. It's a great idea to get this into the hands of influencers. I don't feel that Lotus is visible enough and all these vloggers drive Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo etc. those brands tend to make an effort to get their cars into influencer's hands as well and treat them well to get positive views.

Lotus need that sort of advertising to be able to thrive. It's honestly what sells these days.

Unfortunately, his next video with the Evora is talking all about a Porsche and the only mention the Evora gets is a breakdown joke.

Kind of annoying as Sam and everyone else on YT constantly produces Porsche content. Gets the opportunity to do something different and produces Porsche content.

Agreed, it is unfortunate that Sam has reverted to type and churned out more Porsche content.  I cannot imagine that Lotus will be overly happy with that.

Maybe silly question but: Is anyone of the opinion that someone buys a porsche or a Lotus (or an even more expensive car)  because a "vlogger" supports a car? (maybe I am too old for this time?)

It might be another thing if you are interested in a car and - as addition - watch a vid with car testing content (same in a way as you read a car mag test) but a "the car is so loud, so great, so exclusive"....blah blah vid shouls not be relevant for buying a car

It builds a picture @Snoopy1969. A single review makes little difference it's an informative point for someone who is already interested in buying and probably is pretty set on what they want to buy, a consistent stream of positive content from influencers about your brand brings the brand to top of mind for buyers, getting in at the point before they are thinking of changing car and starting to align their thinking that maybe they need better handling in their life. If all the influencers are saying 'ZOMG, this car totally aligns with how I live and makes me so much cooler because it handles so well and sounds and looks great and the quality is so much better than I thought' then folks start thinking, hey maybe what I want a car that makes me feel like that...

Then they start looking and when they start looking their thinking is now stemming from your brand and that gives you a massive head start in winning in the 'features' wars.

“influencer

Someone with lack of intelligence and a lot of free time, followed by tons of idiots on some social network, usually instagram. "Influencers" are called so because their opinion is worth something only to primates with IQ lower than room temperature, therefore those primates tend to follow influencer's actions without thinking about it.”

“Influencers” that are successful are basically very good and what they do and work hard so credit to them for making it happen. I know I couldn’t (and I am also not their public).

People don’t buy a car because of what influencers or newspapers are recommending but because of how they feel about it. Brand therefore is important. As a starting point of wanting something, you need to know it exist, then it is likely you need reassurance that some other people will like it.

As we all know, Lotus products are really not known so building an overall picture by increased exposure is important. And it need to be sustained so “influencers” need to be part of it and Ian much cheaper than most other form of ad. Now they need to step up product placement as well.

@Bibs many thanks, highly appreciated, but the issue was solved in the meantime by the local Lotus service point  (with a lot of hassle for them and me but solved in the end ...)

I wanted to stress the fact that not answering is not a good idea at all, esp if there is a customer who bought his car in the more "deeper" times of 2012 (production shutdown) and always has been in good faith relating Lotus as a company
