    Exclamation Lotus Senator!!!!

    Yep.....you heard/read it right.....check this out...

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/2090946.htm

    I remember reading years ago, that Vaux/Lotus were going to build a Lotus Senator, then a Lotus Cavalier, then settled on the Lotus Carlton.

    From the photos, this looks quite a good build.

    The Senator shape works much better than the Carlton ones does IMO

    Was this not in TV magazine a few months back? Not worth 15k IMO.

    It was, a truly unique car.

    If it's not worth £15k, how much it is worth. Lotus Carltons are going up in price, good ones are going for £15k upwards.

    *Edit* Guess who supplied the steering wheel badge.

    Nice car that like. I think it's worth £15k as to make one yourself would cost a lot lot more than that.

    i wouldnt say the sierra is even in the same league as the lotus carlton.

    I do like the old cossies but you can get a split mint un for 4000
