Those files would be great. Always liked that image. 

Ps I see you have the IKEA Death Star light. My daughter has that in her room as well 😁

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

I too @003a would also like the files please for my study and garage walls. Not fussed about the shade though 😂🤣

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

@ramjet, yep the wing was a recent addition by the previous owner as was the black roof. At some point the red leather interior was re-dyed as black and also many of the interior fittings were replaced by carbon equivalents so not as plush as it used to be but all in the interests of weight saving so no complaints. 'Going underwater' - with a bit of duck tape I'm sure it will be fine 🙂

@Kimbers, I think the grass stains are still on the underbelly pan!

Pity. Red interior would look neat. Well, until it fades to pink. 🙄

Great car - always nice to have something with a bit of history!

Love the sticker - downloaded, I think my 5 year old will love it!  Somethings not right though...that bedroom is way way too tidy 😉

@C8RKH, @Colin P,

I've attached a couple of files - an ai (Adobe Illustrator file) and svg (scalable vector graphics).

Both should be fine for any print company to generate from and to pretty much any size you want. I used Carl Slater from Roo Signs (roosigns.com).

If any of you get it printed would love to see the results. Enjoy!

Daron welcome, Interesting and fun history, and its interesting that Stratton motorsport  did some mods, it would be interesting to see what the power out put is on a Dyno.

Thanks for the files might be able to have something printed on a T shirt.

Full marks to you and your son, as in the 80s kids growing up had Lamborghini Countach Posters fantastic to see the passion for an EVORA

Thanks guys, sorry been off-line for a bit. @au-yt, yes I had thought about a dyno but running the engine for a short period at max revs gives me nightmares 🙂

 

Ask around where you are for a reputable place, the dyno guys will run the car, they chose a gear say 3rd and just run it up like you running it up to max rev's and the back off. This give a picture of HP and Torque.
