Don't get me wrong, it's pretty awesome - but....

1) A 2 million dollar hand built car from England? Uh, yeah, hard pass. Certainly there won't be any reliability or quality control issues, right? Right. lol.

2) Lotus doesn't exactly have a stellar track record of bringing concepts to fruition.....

This is a stupid exercise of marketing by Lotus' Chinese parent company Geely.

There is nothing Lotus about this car. It's not affordable, not light, and not simple as a Lotus should be.

Colin Chapman would laugh at it...

Plus it's a stupid name. Not every day I'd recommend dumb letter and number sequences, but SC1760 sounds better than E Vee Ha.

Why do Brits drink warm beer? Because all the refrigerators are made by Lucas Electric.

Beautiful design, inside and out.

Likelihood of ever seeing it on the road is very slim to none.

well, guess the Chinese parent company really poured some money in, it's not light but definitely lighter than other electric super cars

Incredible car...

But a complete step in the opposite direction of Lotus heritage which I find unfortunate.

Oh come on man! Did you really bring rationality into a thread that has to do with a $2mm car??? That's like looking at the hottest woman you've ever seen and suddenly thinking, "I bet she has bad credit."
