I’m new to this forum, but I took delivery of mine today. 

Hopefully this does it a little justice: https://gfwilliams.net/cars/430-cup-driven/

Sometimes you have to make do with the footage you capture on the day mate. It's not a documentary, use your imagination :lol:

Im at work @Bibs so can't comment one way or another... what I personally prefer is maybe a bit of opening and closing music, then the real driving effect for the actually footage.

Great video. I must admit I did find myself keeping a beady eye on the chaps rev counter on the in-car footage to see if he'd be hitting the new low rev limiter haha

Fair enough! The 'without' version was the one released of course by Lotus, they thought the same.

Saw the first rhd ones at the factory this week and in the flesh they are rather impressive, front end is more menacing with thebigger intakes and front ‘wings’ . Have to say prefer the rear of the old Cup but otherwise this appears to a proper (and expensive) move forwards.

I spoke to a chap yesterday who ordered one from B&C, only lives up the road from me too! He's going to be joining TLF shortly I hope :)

I was intrigued by the cooling package on the 430, it includes: 

Improved oil cooling system upgraded to handle the additional heat from the engine oil cooling system.

The car has 5 heat exchangers in total:

Engine oil to coolant cooler

Low temperature system radiator

Primary cooling package

Auxiliary primary cooling radiator.

The main radiator is in the usual place and on the right hand side lower intake is the aux radiator. With a CAC (Charge Air Cooler) on left hand side and to top it all off there's also a gearbox oil cooler!

I guess when you've got a big car company, these things don't take too long. Anyway, let's please keep this thread for discussion on the car. Remember, I know where you live :ph34r:
