All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Sounds epic, being able to customise the car like you have is so great! Look forward to pics.

Congratulations! I'm with you on the auto gearbox, I wanted a manual until I test drove the auto.

Congrats ! great configuration :animier: ... BTW, I was just thinking of that this morning : is it possible to order a 400 with 410 bucket seats ? I assume it would add some sportiveness, without going for the whole 410 stuff ... and they look so good :wub: !

Hi Olivier

My thinking was first that i order a 410 with 2+2. My dealer asked Lotus whether that is possible but Lotus says NO! The 410 is homologated as 2+0. So i configure the 400 as a yellow 410. To Answer your question: I think its no Problem for your Dealer to order a 400 with bucket seats. but then you have to order a 2+0 because then you can not get into the back seats...

good point, Stefan ! but then,  you may use some rocking frame to tilt the whole bucket forward, as it exists for Recaro buckets on old Porsche : http://www.classiccarseats.com/tilting-brackets.php

I use them on my old 912 with bucket seats ...

Any bets on how long it takes @C8RKH to post :harhar:

Congrats on a great choice.

I had an NA IPS for nearly 3 years and bought a new 400 auto last month and the gear change is way better in the 400. (I was very happy with the old IPS but the new change is far better than I was expecting it to be)

Super colour choice; the yellow & black contrast mix is aggressive and really suits the 400 & 410. The car should get lots of attention when you get it; especially in your part of the world! :thumbup:

Welcome 4exige. Great spec and great choice with the auto. The exhaust "farts" on flat upshifts and pops on the overrun will turn you into a 5 year old every time you drive it. That's how these cars should make you feel. Enjoy it when it arrives.
