So I went in to the Lotus show room today to finalize the order on a new 2014 Evora S.
Here are some shots of some interesting color combos they special ordered for the Dubai showroom. Three of their cars have black roof/black spoiler combos . . . which looks surprisingly good. The yellow car also has yellow contrast stitching. I don't think that works so well--the yellow thread is too washed out.
They also finally got a standard transmission in, which has Cocoa brown leather with the black contrast stitching. This is a really gorgeous interior which doesn't show well in my iphone pictures. The darkest shot most resembles the actual color. It also has the gear knob from the Sports Racer edition. And they jammed the required fire extinguisher in the passenger footwell. Not sure about the wisdom of that.
I'm told the 2014 N/As have the steel plate on the door sills, the Ss for some inexplicable reason do not.
