Just got my dream Lotus today

Post by Jas » Thu Aug 18, 2011 10:16 pm

I've missed my old Lotus, and always knew I'd come back to the fold, but took my time in searching for my dream car. I eventually found it a month ago, took it on the Brands track day and had mechanical issues resulting in it being at the garage for over a month :mad: I'd only driven it 3 days :(

Anyway, I collected it today and it feels like I just got it for the first time :grin:

Pics below.

Anyway my dream Lotus was an S1 Exige with SC and CC, so it took a while to find. It's got 350bhp with lots of race upgrades and carbon fibre parts.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments :) I do think Exiges just look stunning.

JFK, I never thought of it as Scalextric, but I do see what you mean. Hopefully it won't be flying off the track in quite the same way my Scalextric cars used to.

M7EXG, a totally unbiased opinion I am sure :P But yes, I agree :) The red & black contrast works perfectly - as does yellow and black I reckon.

ConMcL, yes I do like a clean garage. It makes up for the state of my desk :D
