This color combo looks stunning

Really dig this combo

Note that these cars are now coming without the lock on the doors.

That Aspen White with the gloss black wheels and black interior is gorgeous. I don't see it on your website. That is exactly how I would spec out a car. What options are on it and what is the MSRP?

If the ability to unlock the car manually is now gone, what can you do if the battery in the fob dies or becomes inoperable for some other reason?

Im not sure what Abe is referring to, but the MY12 Evora's still have a manual key unlock to the right of the door handle on the driver's side.

There was a TSB report that was sent out in June and this is what it states:

TITLE:
New ‘Inteva’ door latch operating system.

REASON:
In a process of continuous product improvement and vehicle styling, a running production change to the door latching system of the 2012 model year Evora has been introduced from VIN CH_10630. The method of opening the doors as described in section 6 (Entry & Comfort) within the main Owner’s Handbook using the exterior and interior door release handles remains unchanged.

New Latch Features
Central Door Locking The door sill button allowing the individual locking of either the driver or passenger door is no longer fitted, but the use of the interior CDL (Central Door Locking) switch to lock both doors from
the inside of the vehicle remains unchanged, as does the Dynamic (drive away) Locking feature as described in the main Owner’s handbook.The interior door release handles are no longer disabled in the event that Dynamic Locking has been selected; simply pulling the door release handle will now automatically unlock the door. Mechanical Door Locking
In the event of a discharged battery or an inoperative transmitter key it is no longer possible to mechanically lock the right hand door as described in the main Owner’s handbook. If it is necessary to lock the right hand door under these circumstances, an emergency latch access hole is located on the right
hand end of the door shell rearward of the door trim panel.

Mechanical Door Locking Procedure
1.With the right hand door open, carefully remove
the grommet covering the emergency access
hole.
2.Lift the exterior door handle upwards.
3.Using a suitable screwdriver place it approximately 10mm into the access hole.
4.With the exterior door handle still lifted, use
a lateral wrist action to rotate the screwdriver
so that its tip moves to the left within the door
panel. An audible click should be heard as the
screwdriver moves the latch locking quadrant
into the locked position.

Thanks for the news, Abe!

Hopefully the elimination of the door sill buttons will eliminate the binding issues that prevented the doors from unlocking properly. Personally though, the benefit of having sill button is that there is a physical recourse I can rely on in opening the door in the event the actuator or key lock is fails to move the connecting rods far enough to operate the locking mechanism. But if these improvements provide fool-proof operation, it's great news.

I'd love to have some of the MY12 padded door pulls. The seats are much more, well, better too.

We just need to get a group buy through Lotus to allow us MY10/MY11 owners a decent price on a new interior setup. Seats, door pulls, steering wheel, accent dash pieces, shift boot and plastic surround, door handles, the updated locking mechanism, etc.

The way Pagani lets you bring back an older model Zonda and upgrade it to a more recent gen.

Ya know - like that.

And to keep on the topic of this thread I present you with a repost:

For some reason chrome wraps just scream tasteless to me. Justin Beaber did the same thing with his car.
Too much West Coast Customs. Just do not like that type of car treatment
