*edited…

If they want clicks just say there’s a few shots of DV in real life. That’ll get a click or two.

Then just make sure there’s enough shots of the Shadow car(s) to make someone ask if it’s DV.

Done.

I can’t imagine this review is going to be much different than his first one?

He was more positive on the white prototype car than he was on his written EVO review, so my question would be what has changed... he drove the touring with Goodyear tyres in prototype form, and the the sport plus Goodyear for his EVO one.. interested to hear what he has to say in the video review... what did Lotus change from the prototype to the pre-prod and why if it made the car drive 'worse'

What are they doing, testing the delay process too? "We've had our video in pre-release form for a month, and it's close to final spec, but we still have some final tweaks and adjustments to make, so please bear with us. We appreciate your patience and promise you, it will be a Lotus review. It will be worth the wait."

I appreciate Henry wanting to be thorough and fair, but this is going just a bit too far. ;)

I saw this on instagram....Is it possible that Henry went back to Hethel after the road trip to try out a different variant to get a better idea for something he didn't like...Hence the wait on his review???

Interesting comment from our good friend Jethro.....

Maybe they've done a Sports/Cup2s and Touring/Goodyears comparison after their experience with Sports/Goodyears for the road test write up and track video? They were offered a Sports/Cup2s car to do a further test.

That's what I thought when I saw that, and would explain why his review has taken so long. Carfection and Top Gear were the first one's to go out to Hethel to review the Emira, so I think if Henry got the chance to try out another variant he wouldn't say no!

Henry's review in EVO was fairly complementary of the Sports/Goodyear combo. Just served to confuse me even more :confused:

Hmm. Maybe Henry did what Harry did, and called Lotus to talk about performance characteristics that were unexpected? So like they did with Harry, Lotus sent another car to Henry? It will be interesting to hear the details on this.

They didn't send him another car during the test drive. They offered Evo another car after hearing about the Anglesey track test.

I assumed it would be a Sports/Cup2s car for another track test, but it would be handy if it was a Touring/Goodyears car for comparison.
