LF1 Posted April 21, 2017 Report Share Posted April 21, 2017 @JayEmm can you elaborate as to why this is not a Cup car in your opinion? In my mind it is finally the Cup in the same respect as the Elise Cup. The original V6 Cup seemed to be an upgraded version of the road car rather than a road going version of the Cup Race car which the Elise Cup is. It would be nice to see the kill switches and harnesses as standard options per the original (although these were missing from the 360 too). I've pondered this car overnight - I'd love one. The only thing that will stop me is the fact Lotus are knocking out new versions of their top end cars too quickly - having been caught out by this once recently I'll be passing. No doubt there will be a 400/4xx version in the next 12/24 months - most likely announced when the first 380 Cup cars are being delivered to customers. The fact there are only 60 being built suggests there will be something in 12 months. Although it's about 21 months since the 360 Cup was announced with a run of 50 IIRC. I'd like to think that is the runout range now 350/380/Cup. This car is an amazing looking thing exactly the Cup I was hoping for. It completes a refreshed lineup. Lotus please stop now until the final edition prior to the new platform launch. These new models may be keeping you in the news but in my mind they are stopping long term customers buying new and winding up anyone buying the last latest and greatest versions. If I'd have bought the GT4 I had a build slot for it would still be THE cayman of choice for at least the next 18/24 months. That would be a total of 3 - 4 years before my bonfire got pissed on following purchase. @The Pits can you knock up an ardent red one please? 1 Quote Lotus Register - https://www.lotusregister.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
