2008 Los Angeles Autoshow pics
Some pics from the LAAS media and industry day. It was good fun today and nice to be able to really check out the cars, sit in them and talk to the company reps and other media/industry people. And free food too! :nanner2:

Will start with the Evora

Awesome... I really like that Spyker had a display!

How was the California in person? It's growing on me...

mopho 11-19-2008 08:19 PM

Spyker had a display last year too with pretty much the same cars

I thought the California looked great from from the front and profile, but the back of it was a bit meh. Like it with the hard top up better too
The front sort of had a classic 250GT look to it

Finally... Looks like Lotus is getting a proper auto show booth.

Their autoshow booths always looked like an afterthought. Now they've got the Evora up on a turntable and flashy new autoshow digs. Nice! :clap:

For the record, the only thing Dodge about the Dodge EV are the decals and maybe the battery, EVERYTHING things else is the Lotus Europa.

At Cars and Coffee, I heard a gentleman from Dodge telling someone that Dodge built this vehicle in Detroit so I got a little closer to hear more of this story of his and he looked at me and said, "So what do you know about this car? I told him, "Everything! we built it" his face turned red knowing what I heard him say just a few moments ago but just shrugged it off as if I wasn't paying attention and invited him to the group of Lotus owners.

i want S260 seats :drool:

mopho 11-19-2008 10:50 PM

Nice talking to you today Abe, and thanks for letting me get a closer look at the car
