So I've been to Carlisle today and driven the V6. They scored a bit of a home goal from the outset as the car had a flat battery, they knew I was coming and I would have expected they have ensured the car had sufficient charge. As a result, none of the gauges worked for the duration of the test drive. Low charge mode apparently, both needles just bounced back and forth. I don't know if this is BS or whether the car has a genuine problem hopefully you guys can help me out with this.
First impression following the drive... I didn't boot the car too hard and yes the torque delivery impressed but didn't blow me away. Yes the car was more refined than my old girl but that's not what I'm necessarily looking for in a Lotus, It's clear Lotus have tried to refine the car but it's not quite there it's neither refined nor raw its struggling for an identity in my view. The burnt orange is nice but on a dull day doesn't wow you either. I'd say its different as opposed to special. It certainty doesn't warrant the premium they're asking for the car. I need to see and get a feel for more cars.
All sounds a little bit negative but that's not the case it's still a bloody nice machine and a contender at the right price.
Q? For you V6 coupe owners do you drive them with the roof out also.
