Yup, last time I looked COVID was still causing supply issues all over the place.

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!

Yup, Windle in his interview also mentioned the ongoing impact on things like battery supplies etc too.  I guess Covid is now so normal people forget how it is impacting on everything.

The biggest issue in the car industry TBH is not Brexit or COVID its the lack of Semi Conductors/Chips for the manufacture of the cars. 

If companies like Peugeot and Kia are affected then imagine a small specialist manufacturer in Norfolk!

And when I say affected, I do mean it, seriously. Most manufacturers don't have stock of cars and are building to order. Especially automatics and higher spec cars that use more chips. I know our orders of Automatics and higher spec cars has gone from 10 weeks to 5 month lead time. Vans are especially hit, the vans we ordered in March will be with us in April 2022. hence why used van prices have sky rocketed and a used van is actually more expensive than a new one! (13 months lead time as opposed to being in stock).

I doubt we'll get many owners on here so there are no plans. That said, if there's demand I'll add it :)

I guess being so limited and the cost to purchase most conversation will be done via non owners. It also possible the owners not wanting to attract attention by discussing on the forum.  But The car is fascinating and might create some interesting conversations. Perhaps hold a Pole yes or No to the 130 Model Forum. I'll vote yes 

All the Best

I think that as it is an official model Type and a production car, it should have a place alongside all the others.

I would also like to think that we could attract a couple of owners to discuss what will be a wonderful car. But I could understand if we did not. ;)

This may depend on how much they are worth after a year or so, depreciation or appreciation which is more likely. I expect they will suffer from parts on backorder though.

In that case, I could buy one and make a fortune "breaking" it for spares!

That would be quite an investment :D
We would have to paint it red with a couple of yellow bits (and the toolkit would include only a hammer and a sickle)

Imagine the day the car is delivered with the 175 overenthusiastic comrades at Bell & Colvill lol

Maybe we could get 175 tlf member and all put in £10k we could all have the car for two days a year.  Anyone up for doing something mad like that?

If we set up a hypercar rental company, have TLFers sign up as members and borrow the money to buy it we can do it for less 💡

Ha, it is sooooo funny for me that you posted that anthem up.

Bit of a long standing family joke (not that my wife see's it that way) but whenever me and my son had won a "wee battle" against the female of the species we would stand proud together and sing this to them at the top of our voices!  We had learned the words in Russian too. 

A stupid father / son thing I suppose, but anyone with wife and daughter(s) in the house knows you have to celebrate any and every victory that the male of the species can get over the women!

I just had to let that video play all the way to the end, PC speaker on, just so I could hear the wife cuss "oh for fook's sake....."

You don't wanna do this believe me! I get Peugeot 208's back with £8000 worth of damage! Imagine getting an Evija back that's been used for County Lines!

Awww 😕
Sorry about that.

That looks like a common thing though. Although I really don't understand it. I mean, it's not an Atom. And even then, a bit of curiosity won't hurt

I am going to listen to more soviet music just for you!

Another 130 customer flew into Hethel yesterday (well, his son) in a helicopter for the Emira launch!
