Halfway between the 2 Sean
Obviously special paint/colours etc
Also has the 2 piece brake discs and the Trofeo tyres as per the cup cars
Cup had 2 way dampers but the LF1 has the standard dampers
Not sure of the other differences but I think those are the main ones
Painted side-air intakes, rear diffuser and stearing cowl. Leather trimmed dash all over.
Nothing mechanical.

Have you seen the price of the Trofeos for a full set? :o
Quite a bit of mark up for Lotus on them......
Hence why I now stock them at a more realistic price!!!!

I also have the standard Pirelli tyres in stock as well

I know there are a few dealer cars for stock, but heard that only two cars from 81 available to order through the factory. If so that is good news for Lotus.
There are a few unsold sitting in dealer showrooms...

What number did you end up getting Pete?

I got number 18 Brands Hatch.
That would be good to get Sir Stirling Moss to sign your car.
Yep the trofeo tyres are expensive, I had the standard P Corsa's fitted at the factory. Most of my driving will be road with a few T/D's

He'll sign anything (well known for it), provided you cross his palm.......... :lol:

I was wondering what you all think about paint protection to avoid stone chips on these as they will show quite badly on black paint.
