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

The Evija is only available in LHD.

Really? It's a pity. Well, I can understand but on the other hand it's an English brand, so ...

McLaren P1 was LHD only too :(. I wonder what the cost is to develop the Evija for RHD and LHD?

The F1 is the last car to add to my front indicators collection :wub:

Not the cheapest of the three, unfortunately!

F1 front indicators shared with the M100 Elan. Rears shared with a bus!

Indeed, and the Julian Thomson version of the Esprit too ^^

I didn't know about the bus!

But I think it was registered as LHD due to gear stick placement.

I recall hearing about only LHD somewhere in a launch video I think.

I think it is a bit odd that there aren't a few to be RHD to be available for the UK at least? Or is the target for these Europe and anybody else that drives on the wrong side of the road? :P 

No-one knows the Cd of the Evija?

If I saw that photo without you guys having said it was a GT40, I would not have known. 

I am hoping that is a race car.

And, no, the steering wheel would not have given it away. I would have thought some idiot nicked one and plonked it on their wheel.

OMG. I thought every petrolhead would spot the inside of a GT40 and race car or not they do mostly look like that and in the flesh they make Kylie look like an 80 year old grannie lol....

So still wondering what the claimed Cd (coefficient of drag) is?

Anyone?

It's not been announced, nor has the downforce figure or actual 0-60 and top speed. It's still in development.

Fair enough. I thought they may have had an idea with all the wind tunnel footage that had been shown.

They do have a very good idea but they’re not releasing any numbers yet.

Well, received today my copy of The Roadrat Special Edition signed by Russell Carr, Anthony Bushnell and Barney Hate.

 

Strange to see it's limited to 260 copies, while initially it was said to be limited to 130 as the Evija.

Nice drawings and still need to read the article. Almost 20 pages for Evija. Yet, my expectation was a more extensive elaboration...
