No, it's not the official ride of Captain Britain, but it would probably fit the bill nicely. The Lotus Exige S shown was the subject of an episode of Discovery Channel's How Do They Do It? series. The topic was vehicle wraps, and Lotus Design came up with the flag motif to be applied to one of its dynamic sports cars. Four techs took ten hours to complete the job (this was a little more complicated than wrapping a city bus with a pizzeria ad) and the results look pretty stunning. If you're in the UK, you might be able to catch it as it tours Lotus dealers throughout the country. This makes the MINI roof flags look as subtle as lapel pins.

      worst paintjob in history...

      it may have worked for the old jag in austin powers, but it's not working for the lotus. They should have showed their national pride by going with classic racing green.

        The Shaguar?

        the racing green would defeat the purpose. the goal wasn't to paint a car a color, but wrap it in a design.

      Very cool! I've seen a few Laser Blue Elise/Exige and have always wondered what they would look like with the Union Jack theme. Someone from EliseTalk did just their hardtop and it actually looked pretty good, I don't think it would translate to other (non-blue) colors very well though.


      Anyone know when this particular episode is airing?

      It works on the shaguwar, and the few custom MINI's i've see because they have larger flatter surfaces. There's too many curves on this car for it to work.
