Exige Cup 430 Type 25 Collector's Piece

@Tex was thinking the same.

I’ve been in and seen that car and can honestly say I would have picked Red calipers as it is. Every part of that car just works so well together - much more than I thought it would from the photos I’d seen. It’s a thing of beauty. The only thing I’d pick out as a negative are the silver mirrors........not the best finish I’ve ever seen.  I’ve seen the white Type 25 one too when I was in Monaco for the F1.....not so impressed with that one, but each to their own 😎

Am I the only one who cannot stand the rims? The silver edge and the glossy finish looks awful and cheap to me. Futhermore the two-color-scheme makes the wheels look to small...

I thought the same from photos but when you actually stand next to the car it’s amazing just how right this car looks - only issue I have is the silver painted wing mirrors. Looks like someone did it by hand - they’re awful. Looks good in these pics I think.....

I imagine this is a Lotus combination that may grow on you and perhaps needs viewing in the flesh

But I do have to say that it doesn’t on first impressions look great to me and just seems a bit aftermarket. Co-ordination of the colours appears a bit random and for the same money you could spec and personalise your own individual Cup 430

I like it, Would be a great car to own imo, I can see what they did to try and show the Lotus heritage in the design usino the colours and wheel type.

There is no chance of me paying the price for one of these even I could afford to, but that just looks so good with the yellow callipers. 

Congratulations, so nice. 😍

Stunning car. Can't be many left now. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed my V6 Cup.

Hi Mark, great looking car, like Jonny, had a great time in my Exige Cup and fully expecting the 430 Cup to be a hugely enjoyable track car.

Fantastic car , as a further easy enhancement I’d be tempted to get the rear stickers in Yellow and the tow strap also in yellow while your at it 👍🏽
