Anyone ordered a 360 Cup yet? Black or grey with the red wheels would look fantasitic. Are there any links to prices and options list?

 

I don't know of anyone on here with an order, but there were plenty at the factory last week. Grey and black do look great with the red, I can confirm.

Russell from Motorsport reported at the time that only one customer has insisted on swapping out the red wheels for something more subtle.

 

Options list here:

The Ohlins on my 260 Cup were very compliant on the road whereas I find the Nitrons on my V6 Cup a bit harsh even when dialled to soft. The Ohlins on my 211 are again lovely on the road as well as outstanding on the track. The ability to smooth out the ride whilst giving lovely control in the twisty bits is something Ohlins do very very well.  

I reckon the Ohlins TTX on the V6 Cup would be the nuts but a lot of dosh unfortunately!

I agree the Ohlins on the S2 were pretty wonderful on the road, having experienced them mysefl. Specifically it was the TTX I was commenting on being a bit too harsh, but that is admittedly form other people's comments.

Hi There,having owned an S1 for 16 years, I ordered one of these about 10 weeks ago- I was the one who asked for black wheels....

4 days after collecting it, I am 150 miles in and highly impressed with the experience to date.It's appears to be extremely well built, good and fast and has real character- just what I was hoping for from a hand built British car.

 

the S1 remains my trusted friend, but I fear that I'll be leaving the cover on that for the foreseeable future!

Lovely.  Not a fan of the red wheels? It's a bit of a step up from a 118bhp S1 isn't it!  

Strattons,  are you a Norfolk boi?

Hi Bibs,

in a word- no! 

I live in London, I just 'happened' to find myself driving past the Lotus dealer when we were in Norfolk for a family party! 

Its certainly a long way from my S1 which has run at 160bhp for the last 10 years or so, I am extremely impressed with how far things have moved on in terms of power and build quality

Really? I didn't hear a single meaningful word about the 360 Cup or what it was like to drive, just more 'awesome, epic, totally insane'. Which he says about every car.

'I'm lost for words' 'I don't know how to describe it' are becoming regulars too. Seems to be working for him though.

I didn't even get to the end of the jingle!

Sorry if I posted this before but I can't remember doing so....

I was lucky enough last year to get a few hours on track with the 360 CUP. I made a low-rent video and tried my best to review in the short time I had with the car:
