                            Thank you for this episode. Lotus are probably the biggest underdog of the car industry.

                            If you wanna go ahead and do an episode on the Exige, that'd be great.

                                Yes, he did. He did tell why he has chosen the name "Lotus". He was a buddhist. Buddha sits on a lotus (https://depositphotos.com/255132148/stock-video-buddha-statue-water-lotus-buddha.html). That was why.

                                      2:44 - As a Lotus employee; the story goes that Colin Chapman named his automobiles Lotus after the companies humble beginnings, ie; "There are all these other, big, sports cars manufacturers then there is us lot" (Us Lot = Lotus).

                                        How Lotus manages to make the Toyota engines they borrowed unreliable is beyond comprehension.

                                                Fun fact the evija has more power to each wheel than lotus' previous most powerful car

                                                  It's a shame that you skipped their volume seller before the Elise, the Steven's re-designed Esprit. You never even touched upon the 4 cylinder Turbo models or that they eventually got highly efficient 3.5L turbo V8s and that they are arguably the sexiest wedgiest exotic mid-engine sports/super cars ever produced. (Of course I am biased having owned one for years and highly modifying it plus I've driven several several others.) But you did mention the lower volume M100 Elan, the best handling FWD Zcar I have EVER driven in my life! Otherwise a good segment.
