I have 0 interest in anything Lotus produces(ed) aside from Emira, Evora, Exige, and Elise. That said, hoping this will help them gain some market share and ultimately grow their dealer network.

Also, the interior looks pretty nice. That steering wheel looks outstanding. Jury is still out on the exterior - might look better without those hideous wheels.

It’s different but it’s nothing noticeable beyond what South Korean brands are producing in terms of styling. I do wish Lotus well and sure it will handle really well.

A nice still from the Late Brake Show vid... first one I've seen that really captures all the visual interest in one shot.

It's a pity this thing will be well over $130k. I'll need a family vehicle in the next few years to replace my BMW wagon and this would be ideal if it were significantly less extreme in both performance and price. I'd take a 350hp 2WD version of this with the same handling and a far less "hyper" interior for around $75k in a heartbeat. Eliminate all but one screen, put a bench seat in the back, get rid of all the mad LIDAR pod stuff, it'll be fine without all that.
