Took the Lotus for a drive today, got a couple of decent shots.

I almost never take the time to remove the roof from this car, but damn, after today's drive I feel like I really need to more often, it's just an entirely different experience. Finally got a decent interior shot as well.

They're Exige V6 Cup carbon seats that I had custom made before Geely pulled the plug on all of it.

Great pics. That must be a blast to drive. I miss my Z4 sometimes, especially when the weather is perfect, like it's been for a few days here.

Another angle, a bit sharper. I think I might prefer this one.

Yes, all the new Lotus seats are made with Probax foam.

They are quite uncomfortable compared to the standard cloth Probax seats that came in the car. Good thing I didn't buy them for comfort .

The interior shots are Nikon D800 + Nikon 20/1.8 prime.

The exterior shots are Nikon D800 + Nikon 85/1.4 prime.

However, for the exterior shots the lens isn't a consideration, as there is much witchcraft involved.

Processed another interior shot. Not a bad place to be at all.
