The plural of lotus is loti or lotuses.
Confusion arises over the plural of lotus because its original plural form (loti) derives from Latin and native English speakers are drawn to lotuses, which adheres to the standard ruling for forming plurals.

Both lotuses and loti are acceptable. Of note, lotuses is the more common plural.

I forgot JL made the Lotus Esprit.

Here's one from the now gone Walmart Radio Grill, James Bond series. I think this was a White Lightning. Wish I still had the set.

Are those the stock wheels on the black Lotus? I have one, but mine has gold wheels. Not sure if I did that or if it came that way.

I bought it that way...having said that, I got it aftermarket, so it is a possibility they are not original.

From Johnny Lightning Collection release 1 (2001)

I think that the black coloured version came with "Real Wheels" and not plastic tires; but I could be wrong.
That would make it easy to swap the rims.
As for the white coloured one illustrated from the James Bond Radio Grill promo; it came in two colours that were white and orange:

The white coloured one may in fact be a White Lightning

Definitely an interesting discussion.
