  1. I have found it is no trouble cruising around, but if you are stopped first in line at a traffic light, you do have to hunch down to see the light change.

    It really is a great colour combination. And nothing beats those lines and curves .....

    Thank you sir! I am waiting for spring again, but it is a joy to drive!

    I know exactly where you're coming from. No GTE's were sent to North America, so I had to build one, as you are asking about. I started with a LHD Evora S IPS, and made it into a GTE/ GT350 replica. Not exactly popular with original owners, who felt that replicas might reduce the value of the original cars. All my parts are OME, either from Lotus or Mansory. Living in North America, the parts were ordered through a company called British Racing Group, although they are no longer in business. You can check out the build on this forum, going back to March 2016. Just search "Aerobat's Evora Project".
  5. ..... what Gavin said. Yup, that was me .....

    Which car is this Bastien? Do you know who owns it, or where the picture was taken?
  7. Your car is stunning no matter what, Gav !
  8. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, please know that I will never ever even think of getting a Spyker.

    Yes, thanks for some support. My car is a conversion. A replica. But it’s not “Mansory bits”. It does have the new wishbones, new suspension and new wheels. The carbon fibre is one-off custom made based on OEM for the GTE/ GT350. No GTE’s made it to North America. I wanted one. I paid a premium and made one. It’s not a factory GT350, but it’s damn near identical. I’m happy, and that’s all that matters to me.
  10. These are actually tyre stickers, and can be removed anytime. They can be cleaned and/ or replaced as necessary. Not sure where they source from - I got them from www.zrauto.ca Oops sorry - apparently I have reached the limit of my attachment space, and can't show any more pics.

    Didn't the "original" GTE's have centre-locking wheels? This one still looks like it has five lugs on the rims ..... I guess the proof would be to find out what motor is under the boot?
  12. I durst say, that were I to try to replicate this same exit, that I would not appear so graceful.
  13. Nothing like car decals to make the car more sporty. All for children's charity, on a closed course through city streets. Like a Grand Prix for 66 exotic cars, including a GTR Ultima, Ferrari's, Lambo's, Porsche's, Audi's, Peugot, GT40's, a Jaguar, one Audi i8, a couple of McLaren's, a Folino, and one shiny Lotus. Proud to say we stand up as well as anybody in that crowd, and the car handled extremely well on the course!
  14. Again, sorry for the delayed reply. Being on this side of the Atlantic, with such a big difference in time zones, Komo-Tec was not a real big help to my shop. The ECU was retuned to Komo-Tec's specs, and you're right, when I take it to my Lotus dealer/ service department, I will let them know to not re-flash the ECU, but to leave it to the EV460 specs. My car is out of warranty now, so I felt free to plunge on with the after-market mods. When I was doing this, I had not known of, or heard of the TVS1900 conversion. But Komo-Tec is well known and well experienced with working with Lotus, so I'm comfortable with that. Good luck with your plans, and please let this group know of your plans and progress. Thanks for the compliments - I am happy with how the car turned out!
