RENDERMAN I guess Autodesk Studio would be a new software to learn.

When I was 20 years old the personal computer wasn't even a sperm yet, everything was calculated and done by hand, I'm sure all major manufacturers had their own software but it was out of reach for the average Joe but you know what I can complain, I've had a pretty good art career...

thats why we make alias studio man

the big grip i have is the hood bulge... it looks like a front engined honda to me... take 100mm of depth out.. and they layered surfaces to build up the hood over the fenders,,, i just don't get what lotus was thinking or smoking? my only rationale is that its the only way to get the god aweful carp face to work ... as in

"hey boss, i got a really bad idea for a grill, but to make it work i have to make the whole front end heavy and pudgy and lame?"

"...sounds great larsen, go for it! dany's not a car guy so he'll never know anyways"

my other grip is the silly flank lines, totaly what mazda has been doing... i mean it looks good on a $13,000 dollar mazda2 and all.... in fact, i think that show car elise looks like a mazda2 roadster, there... i have now ordained it - the 2013 mazda2 roadster by Dany.

i could go on about how bad it is.... but renderman has taked a turd and made it look 1/2 decent! well done.

Nurse Shark

All the new Lotus look like nurse shark. Why don't they re-design them to hammer head or great white.

Lotus cars will start smiling again when sales improve

LotuShii I was very upset when I saw the concept because I have to start saving money to get one. Great job, Renderman!

I actually was going to post it like that to fool more people but I had a similar thread on S2KI a while back were I posted that I wanted to sell my Elise to buy a CR (Club Racer). People over there didn't know there's an Exige Club Racer so I had almost 50 people posting what a great idea it was to buy an S2k CR, when I showed them the Exige picture, even my close friends wanted to kill me so I was afraid to get the same rection here.
As for the Exige, I think it is already in the works, they have about 7 years to develop a monster car that will be Lotus' staple, even more impressive than the Esprit!!

Viggen The flag I saw was 360hp & twin turbo's..... since a n/a yota v6 is 300-350 I knew something was up

It does look pretty good though

spacepig Nice Renderman. As you can clearly see, I am not a certified Photoshop instructor , but I really wish Lotus would consider something like this to bring the face more in line with Lotus history, and less like 70's Battlestar Gallactica Cylons. The new cars don't look bad, but they don't look like Lotuses either.

Cegan09 That actually looks a lot better. If Lotus took a few pointers from that rendering and used them i think the cars would look a lot better.
