Why the low miles?

Finally getting some sensible discussion & responses from DVLA, so hopefully will be back in an Evora towards the end of the year :thumbup:

Excellent news Paul, I really do hope you can get in the saddle so to speak soon. It must be incredibly frustrating right now. Hope to see you at the VX national this year?

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

My 400 is two years old and is already at 19,000 miles. My old Elise made it to 175,000 and I'm hoping to beat that in the Evora! Cars are meant to be driven.

If that’s who I think it is he’s coming to the IOM with us this year and if I recall correctly I think he said he’s expecting it to clock 250,000km whilst there. 

I had a high day today. The missus was off to her regular Saturday boot camp (well, one of us has to be fit and healthy for our retirement and my money is on her wiping my arse rather than the other w

Thanks all for the interesting feedback.  Clearly despite being the closest thing that Lotus has ever created to a daily driver, many people use their Evora as a high days and holidays car.  And why not?  I agree with the poster who said this preserves the sense of occasion when you do drive it.

Exactly.  That said, I put more miles on my 400 than I do on my GTI which is my daily.  The Evora gets used on glorious days or special occasions  pretty much as I would use any such car be it a Corvette,  Porsche or Audi R8.  Why waste it on mundane use?   When I do use it, it's for pure pleasure and it gets driven in a manner befitting my intent which unsurprisingly was exactly my purpose in buying it in the first place.  It was never expected to be anything else.   

Enjoyed in this way, I  can still sit in my garage two years after acquisition and look at it after a hot drive while I soak up the special that oozes out of it.  And yet, unlike so many poseurs, it can be driven anywhere, anytime and be enjoyed as reasonably practical transport for two people and a week's worth of luggage.  It's so much better used that way than anybody unaware of its qualities might ever imagine.
