What are the red buttons for? Is the "6 Speed Getrag Manual" an electronic sequential?

They are awesome handling cars. The first one he had I went for a blat round Puke with him and he was using gear shifter not the buttons. Not sure how this one is set up. Looks like you could use both?

My choice would be the Aspen white Exige S. Never been a fan of white cars but looks the business here.

Red buttons are the horn buttons... nothing interesting... gearbox is just a standard H-shift.

Interesting how high the bidding has gone for this. Nice looking car though.

Saw that at the weekend, had a double take, a real clio v6 in NZ, barking mad and close to unique here I guess.

Gotta 'love' the pointless side scoops...

My choice, as an Ulti replacement for trackdays...

Thought the first thing it needs is a good lick of paint, preferably a nice metallic black...

I stand corrected... it's almost a proper car then, now it just needs 2 more cylinders...

I like this Westfield, www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motors/Cars/Lotus/auction-74088064.htm

What price should it go for?

Someone is going to be seriously pistoff if he/she buys this thinking he/she can register it. Looks more than a little misleading to me....

You're joking! You know you can import them over here (Aust)... they sell for AU$50k+ as well.

Oh and peterpsg, you're a fussy so-and-so aren't you

Would you make your own Ethanol and put in your cars? How many rotten fruit/veges is needed to pump out a litre? Considering a fill up is 60-80L in most cars.

Someone up at Warkworth made some out of reject capsicum from Southern Paprika (very interesting place for a Visit BTW).

Made quite a bit and seemed all OK, but . . . some kind of oil (or whatever) got through the process and upon test burning it produced a pepper-spray kind of effect. yikes

Imagine following that down the road rofl

The guy is "odd" nuts He's also selling biodiesel kits and a steam car kit. He won't answer questions but has a good rating. Go figure, I think it proves idiots don't know what they are buying. All his stuff is avaliable by a bit of time for free via google or horrors the library eek
