  1. A big thank you to Graeme Robertson at Murray Motor Co for encouraging the factory to send up the orange pre-production car for the weekend, fresh from cold-weather testing. I'm sure VP09 (for the anoraks ) felt right at home with given the bracing winds in Edinburgh the past couple of days. Having seen a few of the earlier cars, in the more restrained shades, I can honestly say what a difference a bold colour makes. Chrome Orange highlights a much more striking design, with previously missed details and the overall shape coming to life much more than before, and so much better than any printed or screen picture can capture. I'm not going to go on about the car - there has been enough of that on the site already, without me repeating here, although like the rest of you, I await with interest the forthcoming press reviews and subsequent test drives. What is a certainty is that at some stage over the next 12 months, Mr Robertson will sell me another car, and this time I'm sure it will be an Evora, and it'll have anthracite wheels. Thanks again to Graeme for organising this, and to the factory for taking the time out of their schedule to have the car in Scotland for the weekend.
  2. This is really growing on me now. Having seen the car in the flesh twice, I wasn't particularly blown away, but I am being drawn to it more and more. Should this continue, I guess Mr Robertson can expect to hear from me sooner rather than later. Derek
