Lotus used to (recent history) prep all our cars to one common standard, i.e all US cars were CARB compliant. It does make it easier to move them around in the market, after all the non-CARB states are not 49. CARB is used by 15 sates plus DC. However in this case Lotus obviously want to get as close to the 430 Hp as possible.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?
There is an upclose picture somewhere that shows they are attached with two screws. The screw holes would be concealed by the rear plate.
Aston Vantage has them too. A throwback to the seventies or sometime when I was a kid and American cars had truly hideous “bumperettes”. Never thought I’d see such again.
I agree. Whereas the rear vents are an interesting (or perhaps "eye catching") feature, the fender vents look like an afterthought and don't really add to the svelte. However, Lotus cars it seems are about a certain type of functionality (the kind that makes for faster progress over the road) so I forgive the aftermarket add-on appearance. As they aid in aerodynamics, they serve a purpose, unlike the fake scoops and vents on so many new cars. I'm sure owners will come to terms with them just as I would if I bought one.I'm trying to like the vents over the front wheels, not having much luck.
