Intro to a long-time lurker


Recommended Posts

Time for a formal introduction. I've been lurking a while after meeting Bibs at a car show a couple of years ago...

 

So, I'm Alex.

 

Started with an S1 111S in nautilus. Stunning car. became an unreliable P.o.S. and had to go. Instant regret  :cry:

What a car... just epic. fun at every speed, positive reactions from everyone, supercharger whine is addictive. 

 

It's a Launch Spec, no. 16. It was hand built by Lotus Motorsport (the 1st 25 were all built that way) and has a few choice upgrades (GT4 back box, twin oil coolers, some other stuff I don't fully understand) and is apparently "quicker than normal". 

 

Sadly, it's about to be parked up for until August whilst I work abroad at some football thing. This year it won't do many miles, but there's no way I'm selling it! 

 

Howdy all... :cheers:
