Going by the way that went round Hethel on touring spec suspension and Goodyear tyres, it'll do for me for everyday road use!Good find and thanks for posting it up. Even more confused on which suspension choice to select but most definitely the Goodyear tyres for all round drivability.
What are you smoking? Your 10 yr old XJ has G meters, lap time charts, graphs, full bluetooth connectivity, etc?So, still no genuine updates from Lotus but they’re happy to let these Shmidiots do the demos For them.
I hope to god those aren’t the final infotainment screens, it looks dull as dishwater and the SatNav looks like it’s from the 1980s and really not remotely good enough for the here and now. monochrome? Really? That concerns me a lot because if Lotus are showing this to facetubers, they will be well aware it will be shown to the world. It doesn’t match a mid 2000’s Volvo system, who are the same group, let alone match its main rivals. Porsche must be smiling seeing this.
It’s only a few months before all this is put into production so to show it in what can only be described as an incredibly basic form (at best) is somewhat worrying. My good lady’s electric DS knocks that out of the park and it’s nowhere near £75-£80K. My 10yr old XJ makes this look like it’s from the dark ages. We need some serious updates as this is starting to look like more and more of a gamble.
Sorry if this sounds negative but I can’t remember anything positive coming out of Lotus since the launch !!
That was my takeway from the video too.Interesting vid, thanks for posting. Fortunately Shmee himself isn't in it. He has a lot of strong competition, but the man is a top contender for the title of most irritating person on the internet .
This has helped cement my choice of sports suspension. The touring car is still clearly very capable on track, but there looked to be a tad too much roll for my liking.
This is pretty much my thinking regarding Sport suspension, although I may go for Cup 2s. Initially I was concerned that Sport might be too stiff for road use, but the best advice seems to be that it is close to the Evora GT410 Sport. When I took one of those for a test drive I thought the ride quality wasn't far off my daily BMW F31 (Msport suspension, 19" wheels but not the horrible run flats). A lot depends on your intended use and where you live though. I am lucky enough to live in the Scottish Borders with miles of quiet, sinuous, generally reasonably surfaced roads on my doorstep. If I lived in nearby Edinburgh where the roads are pretty dire I would probably go for Touring.And the test driver does say the sport is perfectly comfortable @20.29 on the road so whats not to like about the Sport suspension on goodyear tyres?
