    You mean from the supplier of Aston Martin headlights amongst many other prestigious brands?  The issue is the move to ever more complex LED / Electronics and we all know how electronics can just fail.

    I know the background. That doesn’t absolve Lotus for not fixing an MOT failure item that manifested itself even before the cars needed an MOT.

    Do not confuse stupidity with wisdom 👍👍

    A little off topic but I bought my Turbo Esprit HC unseen while I was overseas.  Sent the full asking price in advance to a man in another country for a car I’d never seen, but he was a director at Rolls Royce cars 👍. I flew back to Gatwick, did the deal and drove 5 hours home in the dark. Thankfully everything worked. 😆

    I don't understand why the GT430Sport was not more popular. For me it was the ideal spec without that big rear spoiler and would have been a silent giant killer!  (well, less of the silent with that exhaust!)

    I was tempted to get the blue one that was for sale recently. My feelings were the same about it being a better daily but still a GT430, indeed the Sport was the fastest Lotus road car ever! 
    But, I decided against it because there was no meaningful visual  differentiation between it and a GT410. Shame they didn’t keep the wheel arch vents.  I’m shallow, I know 😉

    Clearly it's totally personal, but curious to know what you prefer about the GT over the 400. Is it just the rear window? Doesn't seem to be much else in it.

    Chris.

    Hi Chris, not sure if you are referring to the USA model which didn’t get the new front. I’m comparing the 400 to the GT410/430 not the US GT. The main styling points on the 400 that put me off are the 3 piece wing(too disjointed/fussy) and the front bumper intakes(too Audi/Lambo). The GT410/430 seemed to return to the Lotus design language which also improved the aero package. Just personal preference. 
    I’m intrigued to see what the Type131 will look like.

    Personally I'd value an N/A higher than the S equivalent. And being an SR variant, that's a bit of a unicorn Evora.

     

    It is a personal thing, I’ve owned both and wouldn’t go back to an NA. But I also wouldn’t have a 4xx either (styling). The GTxxx range saved the day for the Evora... great to have 3 variants for all tastes and all with the Evora magic!
