    Think that would be mine Trevor, shame I didn't know, would've enjoyed a natter.

    Same to you Danny. I noticed the trim at the back as well which was a nice touch as you pulled away. You gave me a fright later in the day, I clocked (late) GT430 going the other way just outside cheltenham and given the location, my first thought was it was mine. Then saw the yellow esprit so thought it must have been you so I gave up on reporting a stolen vehicle then lol. So whose was the red one in the car park?

    I spy another GT430 at bicester, would be great to catch up if you read this before you leave.

    Cheers Xynagy, Bibs. I've had a look at this for the first time (apologies I don't always keep upto speed on here) and have a question and point; 1. Does column A represent anything in particular? i.e. Is the Essex blue owned by oakman the 1st made given it says '1' or is it just an ordering local to the spreadsheet. The reason I ask is mine is supposed to be the 8th. 2. Mine is listed as black but in fact its gun metal grey (military grey?) I have Sparco seats and a carbon panel too. Is this spreadsheet for us all to update or only by a select few? Thank you.

    I started the conversation about the plaques, I Beleive it was OakMan that brought up the question about whether 60 cars were produced or not. But apologies, I will check through the forum in the future before making a comment.

    If there's a debate it's because people are asking questions or there is confusion that requires clarity. It might seem mundane or illogical but there is a difference is consistency, there is a conversation about whether 60 cars were actually produced. Maybe it would be wise to not knock a conversation that people are already having. That said, I think we are at the end of that subject. So, I noticed that my GT430 decals are slightly different to others....

    Maybe, but at first glance one is the sport and 1 isn't. The 2 I referred to were both GT430 full fat with wings.

    Top one was a silver one from silverstone. The 2nd empire green on sale at hoffmans. So not all the same.

    I've 'think' seen some variation on the badges - I don't believe they are uniformed. However, my statement about the badge was a bit tongue in cheek - as hinted at by the smiley.

    btw, I recently got one of them Certificates from lotus. Apparently mine is the 8th one produced! Bit annoyed as the badge says 'one of 60' :-)

    I'd echo that. For me, the GT430 is a keeper having upgraded from elise's to exige's to finally the halo car. I would only sell if times were really bad. Having moved away from the V6 Exige to the easier to get in and out of GT430, I now find myself wanting the 430 Cup one day too. Maybe next summer. I like the Emira, but i wasn't blown away by it so I doubt i'll ever be tempted to upgrade - but then i didn't like the Evora until the GT 430 press shots came out. If any GT430's do come onto the market, because of their rarity I suspect it will be a sellers market.

    @DDubya congrats, you won't regret it. So, am I right in thinking there is no GT430s available for purchase now? They are all in owner hands hopefully.

    I've always wondered what the plate in the gt430s actually means. Mine says 1 of 60. But I don't think it's the first of 60 and I think I've seen others say the same thing. So yes, to me it should have been the same as the lf1. As a side issue, I'm going to caffeine and machines on the 23rd to see the expensive electric thing again. Anyone else going?

    take away seats, put in roll cage. Semantics 🙂 I will amend my question to 'amend' or 'change'.

    I already said that I'm not on the money with details on the use of the word 'cup'. All I know is that it being used more than once for the other 2 models - I think I would be right saying that. Being a GT, I think the main focus of this car was more at a tourer as opposed to a track machine. I would say however, that it would be ill-advised that with all the upgrades on the GT430, to say it wouldn't be suitable for the track. With this said, what extra would they put on the Evora GT430 to make it track orientated that it doesn't already have? Food for thought though.

    if its something like a hybrid then that is drastically different and doesn't bother me as you are changing the basis on which the car is built. Not sure what the word 'cup' would add. I'm no expert on the models but I thought that word was always associated with the Elise or Exige...

    I've spent 10 years years upgrading from my 2nd elise to an Exige Mk2, to an Exige V6 to the GT430 believing I got to the Halo. I also think it would upset a few people to come out with a version that sits with or higher than these halo models in their current Toyota guise...

    Hi all, I hope you are doing well. I've checked the forum for info eslewhere but cant seem to find any additional info. It looks like there will be an Evora final edition. Any thoughts/information on how this compares to the GT430? Thanks, DCMP.

    So does this mean all gt430s are now sold and in private hands? Ah just had a look, still 2 available.

    Hey, looks like Cilla is still working her magic. Perhaps we could swap some pics. I'll contact you directly. Thanks guys. This was a quick meetup prior to going on to caffeine and machines 8am this morning. It's a group around the Swindon area

    Well I have th cf ones, so would've been happy to do a swap for a pair of the 430s.

    Yeah I realised that after a little while. I'd like the comfort seats yes. I've had a quote and I could put a deposit down on a house for what they cost to order new. The ones in press car pictures are ultimately what I'm after. Do you know of any? Thanks

    Hi, did you have the original comfy padded seats in before changing them? If so, do you still have them? Thanks Hi, so is anyone going to c&m this coming weekend?

    Twas me! Had a service, going on a road trip so was happy with Williams guys to use it for a bit to ensure it was running well. Oh and had a couple of mods done to it... And no it's not for sale!!!!!! 😊
