    Now, if we all just went around drag racing and emergency stopping for fun.

    I'd take the LMX in this bunch, as I prefer the V10 and slick DCT but with Gen-1 beauty. I expect the V8 Manual will still deliver the most engaging drive in a twisty canyon, and the GT will remain the most exotic (and likely sought after) of the bunch. The Gen-2, as the latest, will remain the fastest for those who seek it.

    Good find Osman. I'd take the LMX too but the Spyder GT is very tempting.

    Gosh, looking at the rear of the cars in the lineup, I cringe looking at those gaping exhausts on the Gen2 facelift.

    Slightly biased, but I would take the lmx too😀

    At the risk of going off at a tangent, also a great new model becoming available from Switzerland

    Thanks for posting. Although I'm a manual transmission die-hard, in this instance I would go for the LMX.

    I never thought I could give up my manuals but if you want something new and exotic you don't have much of an option anymore. Do find the transmission on my Huracan amazing and does come in handy with extra power supercharger offers but in the end still had that desire for a stick. Finally solved dilemma by adding the Lotus Evora 400, car is a blast and have already down a number of mods. It's tuned, Cold Air Intake, Larini exhaust with decat pipe, carbon fiber side sills and a front splitter. Last weekend did a 4 day rally that consisted of 750 miles and most of it driven through small twisty roads thru New England and New York mountains areas. Was a blast in the Lotus

    AS POSTED ON ANOTHER THREAD FOR THIS VIDEO -

    I agree, if the V10's had given it a car lengths start it would have won,as the other 3 drivers would have been staring at the incredibly beautiful rear of the V8 all the way home and not wanting to pass it

    It's difficult to decide who has the strongest passion: you for the V8 or Howie for anything red.

    Lovely addition to your stable and I'm sure very engaging to drive.
