That is lovely. I just cannot love the rear spoiler though. From any angle. Just looks wrong to me.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Seems Lotus is on track with delivery, what a difference with the past...... got the message my car is "in production"

What did you go for Jokke?

That picture of your black V6 is still the best ever picture of a v6 (s,350 or 380)

The spoiler looks great on the Elise. It just looks too small/puny on the Exige.

I agree, what a lovely looking peice of kit that is. The spoiler is a let down, I'd prefer to see a body mounted extrusion like the Evora has, however the Exige is an out and out racer so the argument must be functionality over looks.

Very nice @Jokke Vlo. That grey really suits the Exige.  Did you go for re bits in the interior (harness loops on seats, stitching, etc?)

Interesting article in an Autocar magazine I just read while sat in the dentist. 

Basically the article was on about the "maybe" SUV project,but there where a few snippets re the Elise and Exige, both current and proposed. 

The one that hit me first was that the price of the "new" Exige could be over 100K Sterling... WoW thats a hike. And also that tweaks to the existing range will continue upto the new models coming out. It, the article, mentioned weight reduction etc etc but I just wonder, is the 380 hp the most we will see from Lotus in these cars? A 410 Cup for instance..... interesting.

cheers

That photo of the red one highlights how much they've had to bend the rear wing uprights to get the Elise wing to fit. Looks completely daft and simply doesn't work to my eyes. 

Cup R style wing and the Transforged mirrors look a whole world apart in my opinion.

@ Mes

Can you do a render with "Candy Apple Orange" or "McLaren Orange" I need to pick a colour soon and I couldnt render a rabbit in a stew...

Out of interest I have a 2014 V6S with approx 3K miles, quoted 32K to upgrade... I asked for Full Carbon Fibre, Bespoke Paint, Sound Deadening, Steering Wheel, Air Con and Floor Mats and not much more...

Needs SERIOUS thought at this price.... but I'm tempted, really really tempted... Its just that I can see a 410 car in 18 months to keep the sales up. As an example, I have a 73 Sprint, out of the box stunning car, Lotus made these due to falling sales in lieu of a new model. History, I think, is going to repeat itself....

cheers
