Lotus Evora at Home by Alex D, on Flickr

Sadly it's been doing this a lot recently, sitting outside the flat as I've been busy and driving my Fiesta a lot in and out of Kensington.

I've been wondering about getting a second set of wheels with some Michelin Alpins on, the Cup 2s really don't like the cold and wet and it does make it less enjoyable to try and drive aggressively. I wish I had gone to the Newlands Corner meet last weekend, there were a good few people ther including GFWilliams, I've been wanting to have a look around his Exige for ages. Next time.

The original under bonnet stuff was starting to fall apart so I thought we would try something more modern.

I hadn't thought about the manifold not being painted, it has always been like that. A quick google showed several others looking similar, so the answer to your question is, I have no idea. smile

Going to pick it up later today.

Far too many shiny, pampered Lotii sitting in sunshine for my liking wink

For balance have a 2003 111S full suspension rebuild in progress smile

Lovely colour combo. I've been lusting over Evoras since I saw them in the factory years go.

Both built at Hethel, Both powered by Tesla batteries, separated by 40 years

'Lotus Elon' :-) build log > https://www.instagram.com/lotus_elon/ (or w/o insta: mas-design.com/lotus-elon/ )
Specs: https://issuu.com/mark77a/docs/1_page_attachment_i...

Its slightly lighter than with twincam, same F-R balance, but without noise, smells and petrol costs @24mpg !!
Has been total marmite on Lotus pages elsewhere :-) .. Purist hatred to 2nd life love. YOU decide.

PS After C-19, I'd love to get Elan Fan Gordon Murray to compare/contrast .. anyone link us up ?
