Lotus #5

Post by MarkR » Mon 19 Jun, 2017 7:38 am

Hey Guys,

Managed to pick up the new car at the weekend.

The overtaking torque is pretty awesome but it does feel heavier - it will take a little time to learn the car I think, but in a good way. I've never been sold on the looks of the Europa but i have to say in the flesh its a pretty cool looking thing. SWMBO also has declared it as her favorite of the Loti i've had, so thats a bonus!

Sadly wont be able to make it to Croft on Friday :( I need to make a list of upgrades as well ;)

Here's a few pictures stolen from Mark Howies FB (proper detailing) page who gave it a good going over.

Cheers.

Thanks for the kind comments all. I joined the FB group a few weeks back when I Was thinkign about buying, seems to be a really good resource.

Got a few things to do to it and tbh, it could use a front end respray but I'll start of with just trying to learn it's quirks atm!
