Fibreglass is very hard to ding, it's very flexible so it's unusual to get car park damage. Stone chips on the other hand... :lol:

My view is what will be, will be. I don't want it to stop me using either of my Lotuses. Hence either my Elise or my 400 will be found at the local train station car park, or other car parks, very regularly.

Used my previous Evora S as my company car and only problems I found was finding a space wide enough  to open the doors.  Never had problems leaving it anywhere.

A feature that I would love Lotus to include, but seems to be absent, is the ability to lower/raise windows from the key. This makes ingress/egress for wide cars with big doors much easier in tight spaces.

Mine is now my only car, so it will have to be left wherever I need to be. I am slightly worried about it, but I bought it because I wanted to drive the best car in the world every day :)

I'm actually chopping in both the N/A and my daily. The 400 is so much easier ingress egress and getting the IPS makes M25 traffic far less of an issue.

I've been lurking for a while, waiting until i found a car before I signed up. As of about 10 minutes ago it looks like I can be added to the list. 2016 400, Metallic grey, black forged wheels, red calipers, red leather, black pack, manual. I'll be collecting after 25th August sometime. I'd like to say thanks to Ian from Murray Lotus if he's reading this - he managed to put together a deal that seemed too good to miss.

Looking forward to the collection day already.

Congrats

It's a spec that I'm very happy with but it differs from that which I set out looking for. I was originally going for either signature silver or metallic orange. Having now paid a deposit on this one, I've come to the conclusion that grey with red leather is obviously best :-).

Red Leather is lovely. I'm even more pleased with mine, I was a little unsure but it's a very classy red rather than a brash dog dick red! :lol:

As Colin said, that one sold but I guess that Murray Lotus must have liked the spec so much they ordered another the same.

BTW Jayemm, thanks for the videos and updates. As others said they have been instrumental in persuading me to take the plunge. Hope you get the niggles sorted soon. I take heart in the fact that the majority of niggles I've read about in the forums are just that, minor annoyances rather than major  issues.

I was out with a Huracan recently and didn't think the 400 was THAT loud, but then I'm normally inside mine, not outside! In any case they both sound superb.

Not usually a fan of white cars but that sir is lovely. Nice one

 

ps it is loud. The owner of the McLaren on my road has also verified this fact ?

Their demo sold to a guy in Edinburgh a while back.

Hi guys,

I bought the Murray demonstrator in the middle of June. Completed about 800 miles in it and loving it! Previously had a 07 Europa for six years.

Really like the retro LOTUS on the dash too.

Cheers,

Dave
