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!

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...

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!

Edit: removed my pictures, deemed too big. Bigger = more detail but internet folks don't like scrolling. Pixlpush resized and posted them below.

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.

Taking care of the Lotus community one Lotus at a time...yes, We Are Lotus
