You’ve sold it because the police in so many countries know it ;)

Congratulations! That’s a lovely car and definitely the logical replacement :) Hope to see you in it soon. More trips!

I guess I need to announce the colour, though this aspect (apart from the price) is what has given me the most angst. :crazy:
I always feel a Lotus should be a colour that stands out. Autumn Gold does that because it is almost unique, and therefore I felt I needed to have something unusual.

I did consider staying the same colour but surely one needs to move on. I very nearly went for Vivid Green (look it up if you don't know it) so took a trip to the factory to see what was there. I must have seen 100 cars in construction or complete, and ended choosing a colour that was not there and that I have not seen in the flesh :shock:

This is what I chose (in this case on an Exige rather than an Elise) It's called Fire Red

Looks great and a grown up colour. Says the owner of a mustard yellow Exige.
