Cracking looking car and a shame I couldn' t make it to Autosport to have a proper look over it. Nearly £28k though in launch spec and no screen and let's face it you NEED the launch spec at least. Makes you look at the competition which can only mean the Caterham and I believe that gets the screen and wipers. Not direct comparrison I know but in the same category I feel.

 

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

Looks ok but if a bit bland compared to the X-Bow. Darn sight cheaper though. Isn't Ansar Ali the Caterham chappy?

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Ansar Ali also was General Manager at Lotus Cars for 5 years from 2000 to 2005 and after than until 2012 was CEO of Caterham Cars.

 

Zenos are based at the Hethel Engineering Centre at the end of Potash Lane (Caterham have an office there too!).

I think perhaps you've spent enough on track cars of late?

I reckon if you go through the cars from the movie Cars, you would find one of those animated cars with the same face.

 

Looks sad to me. :(

Angry.... yeah because it only has 200 hp and no one will spend $60-$70K on a kit car when you could buy a nice used Elise for $30k..  It really is ugly  :thumbdown:

I think it's fast enough…maybe

So, here's a comment from a German. No one has ever claimed the green hell has no corners. Frank is right! Its under powered, overpriced and ugly!

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!

I was interested in the E10 - still am sort of.

 

I registered interested on their site and Ali emailed me directly. I thought it was marketing gumpf to start with but had a short exchange with him about it. He seems very confident in the car and the success of the company, and a nice bloke to boot!

 

Circumstances changed and I'm not really looking any more, but if I had to free up a few quid I'd be tempted to swap the 211 for one in the future. It wouldn't be as fast as mine I'm certain, but could be just as fun.

 

Anyone actually seen them in the flesh though? I'm not 100% sure yet. I have the offer of a drive if I get over to Hethel, but that won't be until August at the earliest now...
