Easy there Nico, the 350 Exige makes 7,200 already. The 410 motor wouldn't need internals to rev 200rpm more.

I'm really pleased to see the rpm decline reversed though. That 410 just wants to pull to 7500rpm at least! The 6800rpm limit is one of the few things that makes me want to pass on the 380 Cup.

 

I agree 100% with you. Either I find a good deal with my dealer and move to this Evora, either I will leave my favorite brand. Never been so dissappointed in a car as in the 380 engine limiter. How could they do this??? They just killed the car and let me spent +100.000 euro on a car which is not better as the first Exige V6. Still can't get sleep of this......

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.

To how many @rallyesax, where is the source of your info? :)

Well that's what Lotus told us about 2 Months ago for a special project on this car (that's when I saw and knew about the car) that didn't reached out. By that time they told us it will be a limited number of cars. (because of course we needed to know how many tires to supply). Even if it's D_day I shall not communicate the number they told us right now.

But if they gave you other informations and that it's not limited anymore or just a few first special edition, that's awesome ! B-)

@Bibs? Have anyone seen Bibs?

Yesterday I got the annual request for prolonging my FF account, hmm...make a mistake: should have combined my payment with an early disclosure of the new car today ;-) ...............

This car really seems to have captured the imagination. Good to see. But will be quite controversial, some car sites will be having a meltdown!

Controversial? I wonder... over than the classic not enough bhp for the reason we all know ... Why? Did they rebrand the car ? Is this the reason of #anewlotus hashtag?

This is worse than Christmas morning or night...  It 's like waiting on Santa knowing that he will be late...And you have school/work in the morning

I hope its either sh*t ugly or really really expensive so that I can stop thinking about it**

 

 

 

 

**not true, I think I want one already..... I think I can do without some non-vital organs.

The non-vital ones, unfortunately, do not come with a high price to others.

And if I am not wrong, it is only 8:30 guys. Lotus probably start at 9, so I presume that is why you have not heard from His Bibsness.

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.

I am waiting for the "how much faster round Hethel" line :-)

But if we look at Exige 380Cup and Evora 410 pricing, I fear the 430CUP  is going to have a price to put most off which is a shame.  I am just as excited to see it mind you, I bet 10am launch.

Hi @430CUP - welcome, how about popping over to introductions and saying hi.

Hope you're not disappointed when the name is announced ;)
