  1. I never quite understood how this patriotic Scotsman, who so whole heartedly supported Scottish independence, was so happy to live in the Bahamas for so many years....
  2. My GTE blew its gearbox after 3000 miles. When they came to replace it, they reckoned the clutch was already particularly worn, so they popped a new one in. I have owned the car from new and can say with 100% certainty that it had enjoyed a sheltered life, with not one standing start launch. The data log dump confirmed this. It was just one of those things, so I would certainly consider a new clutch a bonus.
  3. A new clutch would be a green flag for me, rather than a red one.
  4. If everyone In the world stayed at home for 1 month, would it wipe out the virus globally?
  5. DVLA MOT and Tax checker website doesn’t list any car for that registration. Maybe still in the process of being re-allocated? Nevertheless it shouldn’t be on two different vehicles at the same time!
  6. Well from the point of view of reducing the number of new cases, the first lockdown did work. It was only after restrictions were raised that unsurprisingly the R rate started to rise again.
  7. There’s none flying at the moment....
  8. That story is a bit out of date. The Catalina was successfully hoisted out of the Loch by a crane a few days ago. They can effect the repairs on land.
  9. This is the OEM GTE rear wing. No bolts and herringbone weave, not even a brake light.
  10. Not sure what DeRoure are showing there. Regular Evora & Evora S don’t have a GTE wing. The GTE wing had no end plate bolts but did have herringbone c/f weave to match the rest of the car. A much nicer product.
  11. The one on the red car above doesn’t look right. It shouldn’t have bolts in the end plates and it looks like it hasn’t got the correct herringbone weave.
  12. Yes, I think you’re confusing the two posts. It’s a Countach 5000S in the workshop and a Diablo in the field.
  13. It’s probably more a case of saving the money Grosjean wastes by crashing his car every week than bringing in new money!
  14. It seems that you’re particularly interested in re-sale values, so even you must concede that the Lotus range has very strong residuals. That £50k S1 Evora from 11 years ago is still worth £25,000 - £27,000. For comparison there’s only one tidy equivalent 2009 Cayman on PH, up for sale at an independent dealer with a price tag of £18,750. So the Evora has significantly outperformed the Cayman in that respect.
