  1. Am still excited. Drove mine to Gloucester and back yesterday and it was proper torrential. Esprit handled it without issue and even the windscreen wiper has started seriously thinking about being an actual full time windscreen wiper now. Like every time time I ask (it really wasn't interested before).
  2. I'd be amazed if Caterham don't take this option, assuming the platform can be electrified without further modification expense (which would negate the point of buying it in the first place).
  3. It is, that’s true. Epoxy paint, you could bleed out and it’ll wipe down in a jiffy.
  4. My advice - go white and with plenty of light. Don't worry about all that other stuff.
  5. Not all cars become timeless classics. The Esprit, I think, has. The Evora, I do not think, will. Sorry, but I just don’t think it made it. Great car, but not a great car.
  6. More likely, he's gonna take an Emira, remove the body and the engine and the chassis, and replace them with stuff from the back of his garage, and charge much lira for it. I think that's what Ant and Jenson are planning too, maybe. Only Dany is a God.
  7. Try Tomorrow's Classics. Nick may well still have the HV removed from mine.
  8. Oh... my golly gosh And that was all real footage, right? No CGI.
  9. Ah, seen. Yes that’s Warwick. Interesting...
  10. I've got to ask - is this a real pic? I've not seen it before and I've been keeping my eyes well peeled.

    Yes. It was on last year and much discussion then took place about the digital dash.

    Interesting how they usually make a thing out of redoing the upholstery with a comedy trip to a trimmers - but they didn’t in this ep. I suspect they baulked at the 15k cost for a tartan interior! And decided to just not go there.
  13. I’ve owned 2 Evoras and they are epic in every way. Of course they are. And the easiest to live with Lotus yet. And they don’t do little wee’s on the garage floor. And you can hear yourself think, even when you’re going along. The fuel gauge is still completely random, mind. It’s all mod cons. But, they’re not a timeless Esprit. And they never will be.
