I think there are certain items that add zero to almost no weight.
Leather trim (instead of cloth).
Electric windows (removes weight).
Upgraded radio (can't weigh a lot more)
Stowage net (my socks weigh more than that)
And items that are marginal in considering-
Full carpet sets. It is still very little carpeting bits. Dresses it up, but you are not carpeting a living room here. I would venture under a pound or two.
Thermal insulated soft top. This is foam. It can't be very heavy. Maybe a pound or two?
So all in all, we are probably under 5 pounds. What is left? Sound deadening. What is a layer of undercoating weigh? A few pounds? Maybe 4 or 5?
I would be surprised if the entire Touring Package added more than 10 pounds. And I would be even more surprised if for most of us, that is noticeable. I know I could just quit eating so much and make up that difference.
I have another question for you attendees. I was think about the coloured interiors until I realized they are leather. I think the cloth will "breathe" much better. But how about the standard cloth, it is called black but is it all really black?
Some of the pictures seem to show that the interior is two tone grey. Can someone tell me if it is light/dark grey or something more like charcoal and black.
BTW The pictures have convinced me to get the hardtop. It looks really sweet on the car!!!
The oval on the far left is the sample swatch of the cloth. Each of the ovals show two ovals...one in the middle is the perforated leather.
The left one has an additional smaller oval with the cloth in it, which looks lighter here, but I think that is just how it reflects the light. Standing over it, it all looked black to me. I will get a pic looking at it from above.
Nick mentioned to me that on hot days, the leather seats could get quite warm compared to the cloth.
(Also mentioned that the AC was really quite.... adequate)
BTW, breakfast at The Pantry is great! It's not a very big place and it's very popular, but if you like huge portions of great food, it's worth arriving early (1 1/2 hours before your target time at the show) and having breakfast there.
I'm looking at buying a 2020 Lotus Evora GT. This is my first high-end car purchase and I was wondering what kind of discount under MSRP folks usually get when buying in this range. Also, does it matter if the car is a custom order?
New member here and long time reader, first time poster. I’ve been a huge fan of lotus for as long as I can remember and have always wanted a get my hands on an Exige S. The opportunity came up several years ago at a local dealership, but the car sold over a weekend I was on...
Hi All, has anyone purchased the new 400's recently? Seems like the remaining 2017's are going for about a 10% discount? One dealer I talked to in NY said they will sell at $90K for a $100k MSRP car and one other said $7k discount. I am trying to gauge if that's where the market is since I am...
