If you order one of these do not breath on the mirrors they will fall off. The mirrors were reattached with super glue. I of course had to customize even my toy car and painted the diamond cut wheels black. I think it looks way more aggressive with the black rims. Since the tour car is not coming to Boston I was forced to purchase the model for 3D review. I will be going verdant, black pack, gloss black rims, and grey leather.

That looks great, I want one! Where did you order it from?

The original 500 sold by Lotus (mostly?) in the UK were 1/43 scale, and had a special "First Edition" package wrapper and certificate of authenticity. They did say that more 1/43 and 1/18 scale models were to come. The links above seem to be a mixture of these....

Does anyone know anything about the lotus emira in 1:18 scale, specifically in Dark Verdant color. If anyone has pictures or can approach a dealer in the UK and get information it would be of great help.

If the mirrors fall off, that's authentic Lotus fashion...Did you also get a water leak?:)
