It doesn't look terrible, but I'm not sure I like this color scheme, actually. Somehow it falls short of being sporty or elegant. It tries to be both and fails midway.
For elegant, lose the red stitching, red piping and textured panels on the seats. Replace the faux carbon fiber texture with glossy black or original brushed aluminum. Paint the calipers black.. Not sure I like the rims, the spokes look bent, although I understand that's the 'look'. Just not a nice look, IMO. Oh and lose the obnoxiously large LOTUS logo on the sill. The interior changes have "afterthought" written all over it.
For sporty, I would prefer to go all out. Draw the cool texture of the steering wheel and dash out throughout the central tunnel, door sill, and door latch surround.
The car looks and feels much better although I never really had any problems with the current models but in a market dominated by automatic transmission, this should help boost sales. I really like this new and improved interior and the fit and finish is great all around.
