Sorry uploaded wrong part of the vid. Exhaust from the event in Melbourne yesterday. They were saying they were having a problem with starting it up in loud mode rather than Camry mode. Fuller revs at the end of the vid.
Just driving to pick parents up and saw this. Nearly crashed. How, what, when, why and lots more. Any input. Various ideas gone through my mind. Obviously registration possible gives it away
Great to see a different spec. of Emira fulfilling the Safety Car role for the British GT Championship at Silverstone this weekend. Not road registered and fresh from the factory. V6 FE, LHD, Manual, Sports, PS Cup 2, Shadow Grey, Black Pack, Diamond Cut, Red Callipers, Tan Leather,. And the Safety Car driver says she loves it.
A nice little video on the history of design at Lotus:

Lotus is teasing a mysterious new model that debuts on May 5. The brief video is just 13 seconds long and never actually gives us a good look at the vehicle.
