I didn't want to lead the witness, but that symptom is what I was expecting as a reply. A number of V6S have been reported to make this noise, getting more prominent with increasing mileage. Owners have had clutch replacements after pursuing a warranty claim. I heard the issue was resolved for the Sport350 but perhaps not.

My Cup has 6200km approximately and makes the noise albeit very quietly. A previous V6S has been silent and another very noisy.


@Barrykearley, the Transmission is Toyota yes, but the clutch and release mechanism is Exige/Evora V6 specific.

No problem, sometimes from a stationary it does not immediately enter the first or the reverse gear ... I have to insist ... sometimes putting the first the car feel it makes an imperceptible tap forward ... if it does not give me problems in time I can leave everything like that

sorry I had forgotten, sometimes hard to enter the first or the back ... and sometimes putting the first the car moves imperceptibly forward ... if it stays so without other problems I would leave everything so ... I'm waiting for what he says lotus for guarantee
