Not planning on any track day the Jonny?

 

Trevor.


I'll get around to it at some point.

It's not louder than the standard pipe so will see how I get on with noisy days to begin with. 

Since passing up the chance for a GT430 I'll have to find some other way of getting one-upmanship over @Stubox, if that means restricting myself to Silverstone, Donington, Spa and the 'Ring then so be it!

:D

Right that's done it. Given there's no obvious reason why a 410 wouldn't sound just as good as that with the Ti silencer, I'll be having one of those. 

@blindside does yours sound any different?

If it's 10kg lighter, goes blue and sounds like that, where do I sign?

 

 

 

I think Ti does sound slightly different to the stainless back box (which sounds fantastic). It has a hollower more metallic sound, with a little less bass than you get with steel. There is just as much noise at mid range and it sounds manic over 5k rpm. OK it limits track selection, but it's very nice to look at and listen to. :thumbup:

I can do some decent photoshops, invaluable for wrestling with colour choice,  I should really charge something for this as it takes hours to do half decently but might make an exception for 430 owners. At least there are only 2 of you at the moment!

:thumbup:

Yes please !

im looking at Racing Green, Motorsport Black or the launch colour grey - all with silver wheels ??

Congrats Anthony & Mark - awesome! Great to know have we have at least 2 of the 6 here.

now talking specs only three things matter: 

1) colour - I look forward to the angst, the changing of minds, the emotional pulls and then the final decision ?

2) harness (six point) and bar  - it HAS to have these....

3) aircon - cos we have all gone soft, but it helps on the drives to Spa and Ring!

very exciting guys ?

Spot on mate.  Colour us driving me mad but in a good way.  Harness and aircon obvs!

The rear subframe is i guess still made of high strength steel and could be made in aluminum... That would make it a full carbon Lotus Evora. I guess we'll know in around two years and by then Lotus maybe in a very different place.

Lotus once stated that the rear subframe is steel rather than aluminum do to the concern of degradation due to the exhaust heat.  Lotus did make some prototype Ti subframes, saw one for sale earlier this year.

Is it the "Empire Green" paint ?

Great colour! Makes it look like the car equivalent of an extremely menacing stinging insect:

It's around this time of year that the arabs ship their supercars over for the Knightsbridge Grand Prix isn't it? Nothing to do with drinking in strip clubs of course, that's against their religion. :whistle:

I'm guessing Lotus think they could bump up their orders from the middle east.

I may find myself at the Dorchester tomorrow then ... for the car obviously, not the Middle East gentlemen and their entertainments!

You'll probably find it parked outside Spearmint Rhinos next!

Who is this new marketing guy again? Certainly immersing himself in his customer's mind-set!

Evil looking car from the rear :thumbup:   I just cant see the point though in heavily marketing a limited edition car imo  ?   Or do they still have plenty to sell ?

I imagine they have plenty to sell that are earmarked for the rest of the world, hence the chosen location.

Do Central Lotus (and possibly Hoffmans) still have their UK allocated vehicle for sale?  The Central Lotus one is still on Pistonheads.

(I'm looking for a no answer - to be clear - especially before I go to see it tomorrow)

Hofmanns still had their build slot for sale last week...
