great ! whatever is my next lotus, it will have this color :)

Great choice :-) I really wasn't sure how metallic the paint was but yesterday with the sun on it looked amazing and really came alive, now we just need more sunshine.

Paul, the car looks B-)

Agreed, Sig' Orange in the sun is great, it  really does need the light to come alive. I didn't fully appreciate just how so until I last saw @ROJ's car at the Festival this year. Reminds me of how my Solar Yellow V6 lemon was.

He says as we go into winter!  Lol. Still, lovely choice of colour - that, red or toxic green would be my choice for sure.  Oh shit, went all European with that last bit... :)

 

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!

I was discussing with the owner of the blue one on the Italian forum and he told me he put the 2bular (non track version) on that car.

Another video of the Italian car

@Arun_D that video only frustrates and makes me more angry about our UK bloody track noise limits!!!

Indeed. I dare say the standard 380 exhaust might sound better though, to my ears at least. :ph34r:

I see the vid description says full decat system. I think I would prefer it with a cat. That car sounds quite different to my backbox only 2bular

I must be getting old but making that much noise doesn't appeal much these days. A case of quantity over quality to me.

Old Lotus twin exit sports exhaust was pitched about right for me, though I understand they have issues on trackdays as it is.

380 Cup does look good on the move though, and very fast.

Not the best sounding V6 that I've ever heard …. at least from that video.

I'm sure that I'm biased ;)  but to my ear, this simple Burns muffler (4"x24") with no cats sounds better…..

Sounds slow to rev compared to my car...  Mine with the 2bular in loud is too loud now, sounds nuts and is addictive but too loud to live with!

@Hangar 111 quiet exhaust will go on it soon, then I'll have an exhaust for being quiet and an exhaust for being a hooligan (and the occasional track day without noise limits!)

Beautiful car!  I like your colour choice, it works very well on the 380 Cup.  Stunning scenery to set it off against too...all those twisty mountain roads will be a true delight to drive in your new Cup.

What a place to live and own a car like that......you're a lucky lucky guy - bellisimo!!!:wub:

Indeed, I feel very very lucky!! 10 years ago I could have never thought that one day I would have own a car like this.. it's spectacular! 

Exactly what I was looking for! :D

Switzerland is also beautiful, just need to be careful with a car like this it is easy to go outside of the limits...

Position is strategic: Alps at around 90 minutes from my house, german autobahn 60 mins, Hockenheim and Monza 180 mins,  Nurburg and Spa 300-350 mins.. as you see, a lot of plans for the future! :D

Sounds great......and fantastic positioning for 3 F1 tracks:thumbup:

I love this shot incidentally! The grey, black & red bits work really well together. Always preferrred the red accents etc but most seem to have gone for yellow......great choice! B-)
