Does anyone know when we're going to get a proper, written up, road test of the car?  I've been scouring the internet and set up all the appropriate "google alerts", but not seen anything yet...

When the car is ready to be driven, I'm sure there will be plenty of road test but I'd imagine they won't be until a short way into 2020.

Let’s hope they pick up a fair few deposits. I wonder how many firm orders have been booked so far?

I heard they picked up 15 at a single US event.  Pretty impressive to be honest.

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!

I just saved it as well. The sheer size of the vent that goes through to become the taillight centre is just awesome. I had also never noticed until just now how abruptly the rear quarter panel ends after the wheel so that you see the rear shape from the side. More awesomeness!

Is it going to be in RHD as well and is there going to be ANY that make it to Australia? I though I had read that it was only going to be in LHD? I might have been dreaming about that though. 😴

It is on the Australian website, but I don't know if that means that any are going to get here.

It really is a seriously gorgeous car. :wub:

(now I just need to have a seriously decent win on lotto)

Another thing which may have been answered somewhere and I have not seen it yet, has a CD figure been given for the car?

I just went and looked at pictures of the new (now old I suppose) Ford GT and I have to admit that it is pretty impressive how they got the airflow through the back of the car considering the whopping great V8 in there.

I understand that it would have been much easier with the Evija, but hats off to Ford I think.

The intention was definitely to sell some to Oz but unclear if it would be LHD.

The Evija is only available in LHD.
