Interesting, didn't know you were in MI. I was on a different marque club drive today out in the Irish Hills. It was a great day for a drive!
Always looking for other Lotus owners to cruise with, I'd love to know about any cruises/events coming up in MI
It was definitely a fun cruise today.
The Lambo owner was very down to earth, he actually told me how nice my Elise was before I could even tell him that Lambos are my dream car. Unfortunately, he didn't offer to trade cars with me though
What surprised me, when I had them parked next to each other, were how many similar styling cues the cars had. Side air intakes, gills on top of engine, lines of rear window / roof.
A few differences were immediately noticeable though. The Gallardo looked huge while parked next to my Elise. I never would have guessed such a size difference until I had them parked side by side, it makes you realize what a small car the Elise is. Also, the orange paint is a bit different. The Lotus has more of a deep, darker orange. The Gallardo was a noticeably lighter orange, but the metallic flakes were much more apparent while looking at the paint. I think his color is called "pearl orange".
Definitely looking forward to more Michigan area cruises!
