I don't think this is strange at all. It's just that we haven't seen Lotus make this bold a statement in a long time., or maybe at least this publicly. If you look at the history of Lotus, they were...

Coming out right after the GT Roadster and the 5 Paris cars.:wink2:

To their credit, looks like they did produce all the 430 GT and Sport cars.

I don't know if he actually said it, but I...

This is a home run (maybe I should say goal? or century?) Even if they never build a single production car, this is a brilliant showing of everything Lotus is.

Still confused about the US cars' HP. The Lotus site has been updated so shows all the colors now, and has additional info about wheels/tires, etc. (I note the 400 page still doesn't show wheel size,...

Grey is definitely the hot new color. I have seen numerous Porsches in grey within the last few months especially the Panameras, and within the last two weeks have seen two BMW 850 cabs in grey. If...

Seloc says 10 not 10.5, but maybe the 10s were Europe/non-US only?

Lotus website does say 9.5. according to Seloc, looks like 9.5 is standard wheel for S 400, 410 and 430, but there is an optional 10" wheel for the 410, 430 and 430 sport. Maybe not offered on the GT?

There are definitely body changes, especially the rear - which does look better than the 400, although I, too, would prefer the glass hatch, regardless of weight - and the sides, etc., but in...

So the 430 is 422 hp 49-state and 416 CA? Does anyone have similar figures for the 400?

Of the total 60 cars, how many will come to US?

400 vs GT

Now that the specs are posted in the US site, I can answer my own question as to why the auto is now slower:

400 man hp/torque 400/302
400 auto hp/torque 400/302

GT man hp/torque 416/317

416?

A few questions. The GT 430 and 430 Sport are not shown as cars in the Evora model range in any country. I assume this is because this is considered a limited edition? Or because they are already out...

Slowest rollout ever? Not even close. This article is dated 8/5/2008. I'm hoping to get the updated specs from my dealer soon. But I know it's a double-secret pre-order, so things are fluid. :wink2:...
