Overall I like it, loving the new front bumper, not so keen on the rear wing, it just looked slapped on. Think the pinched in panels behind the front wheels would look better just vented rather than pinched in. I suspect it will make the GTE's look good value.

I get the GT reference but do think they need to standardise the range across the different models.

This is my new Evora GT 430 with special painting ( Gold Leaf) by hethel factory. The car is waiting for me at Komo Tec Germany. You can see the car this weekend in the KOMO-TEC Box in Nürburg /N

Thanks @Bibs and all.   What a feeling.  And it will be the only time in my life I am customer #1!   More pics and thoughts to follow.  But I can say this is a special car, very special.

That looks amazing, let start giving Lotus some Credit instead of slating them at every opportunity, they still make great products and this as got to be the best for years, I say well done Lotus 

Yes I also  love it,  but one will have to take into account price and then I will be right off it lol

I fully expect to get heavily abused simply for asking this question but ... given it has the Sparco seats, is a +2 feasible? 

It could mean the difference between me getting this past SWMBO as a direct replacement for my 400, and being slapped for suggesting I buy another 2 seater car.

I doubt passengers would appreciate the ride round the track as theyve taken the back windows out too......

Front and rear bumper look very nice, fixed the slightly awkward looks of the 400 IMHO, I'd buy this in a heartbeat if I had the spare cash!

Torque still being held down to protect the naff gearbox it seems...

Good concept... not sure about the wing on the Evora though... liked the GTE wing a lot better. To me this is not really a fluid design anymore with that wing... a huge wing is always a challenge but if it is done right it can be done...

The usual 400 owner, owners giving it a hard time already, don't understand it, lotus pull out all the stops and produced what you can only say looks like a proper super car with fantastic specs  and yes know price point matters, lotus can do nothing right in some people's on here, give Lotus some credit  it's a amazing car, built on a tight budget.

Agree that it does look very nice but I'll be sticking with my 380 Cup order, looking forward to finding out the price though.

How do you mean?  As a 400 owner I'm trying to work out how I can wedge this into my life!  Looks awesome.  I even prefer the Sparco seats!

As someone once said (I have no idea who), if you have to ask the price, you can't afford it.

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.

Love how the info website is still not working over an hour and a half later. :thumbup:

 

Does seem daft as I have posted every page from it here and onother sites but we still have an embargo lol really !

we have all the info bar the price, it's a lol moment !

Can Lotus do anything right !  what a press flop, nice car though (bar the daft price it will be) over and out.

Looks absolutely epic!  Totally love it and can't wait to see some other colours, red and orange would both look incredible as always on a Lotus.  At first i wasn't sure about the front end of the 400 but i totally love it now and get compliments and longing stares from people everywhere, it just looks so purposeful!  I think it's great they manage to keep changing up the front end every now and then, it keeps things interesting while always looking like a Lotus to those familiar with the brand, unlike many other sports car companies who tend to stick too closely to a very narrow range of designs.

Hats off to Lotus again, i'll be going to Bell and Colville to have a nosey around as soon as they've got one :wub:

Not a reference to you, wish I was a 400 owner but sadly can not afford one, so got no chance of a 430, there is 1 or 2 owners that just like to slate anything that Lotus do to improve the product

Where is a front numberplate going to go, without blocking most of the airflow to that radiator....

I really really hope Winace or someone starts fabricating replicas of this front section, it's a beauty!

I'm curious about those front wheel arch vents, I'm envisioning some TVR Sagaris style stones to windscreen scenarios. They could've made some bespoke wings instead of just getting the jigsaw out, surely? :)
