Wanted - Evora NA

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

Looking for a nice NA car with no Carlos Fandango mods or accidents/damage.  Preferences are for  low miles, low owners, FSH, Launch Edition or NA with all 3 packs, 2+2, in a bold colour (less keen on black, dark green etc). 

Willing to consider cars that don't match all preferences, but in an ideal world..............

Thanks

Gordon

Hey 

I have a launch edition 2+2 with premium pack, tech pack and sports pack.

In Aqua marine - so kind of blue green.

I am third owner but have had it for nearly 8 years.  

Currently trying to convince myself that I do not need an Evora 400 as a birthday present for myself lol

it has just under 40,000 miles on it 

However I am in Berkshire :)  would be a fun drive home LOL

Hello there.  Thanks for the reply.  I am looking for a car with fewer miles - there are still a few out there. Thanks again.

Your looking for a 10 year car with less than 4k miles a year! Good luck.

Yes, I know, but they do exist, as a regular poster has confirmed with his recent purchase.

while I too like a good low miler.........I like to see one that is used consistently.........

if a 10 year old car has 20k miles on it......of which 18k miles was put on in the first 2 years.....and its only done 2k miles in the last 8 years....Id be looking elsewhere

for me.....as long as its had good use....and been dealer maintained.......then I see 30~40k miles for a 10 year old car as low.........

just my thoughts.........

also are you mot planning on driving it alot????.........or do you want to drive it a lot but not make it look like a lot when you come to sell???........

I never quite understand keeping the miles down to a bare minimum........for me its there to be driven and enjoyed when ever I feel the urge......don't want to be rationing myself........lol

I understand the 'needs to be used' logic.  I also have family experience of 2 identical cars bought at the same time from the same dealer.  After a few years, one car had more than double the mileage of the other.  Both were regularly used, but one less so than the other and both were serviced as per the manufacturer's schedule.  After the said few years, the low miler was in much better condition.  Car will be used regularly, but unlikely to rack up miles at a big rate.  Not thinking about selling.  More likely it will be taken off me and recycled as part of an action plan to address the stated climate emergency. 

Now enough about my warped or otherwise buying logic and on with the search.  The right car will appear, it always does.

He's already turned down one 40k miles about four posts earlier.

A sincere thanks to those who have pm'd me with details of their cars.  I know that the 'low miles, low owners etc' thing might sound like a bit of a tall order, but there are cars around that do meet the criteria. You never know, the right one might be just around the corner............  The search is currently on hold.  An update or search resumption will follow in the next week or so.

theres a solar yellow with everything on it with 13k on it at Paul Mattys

the only problem is its a 'S'............but its seems to be the fist low mileage bold coloured Evora.......

the others seem to be either blacks/greys or high miles.......

Gareth.  Thanks for that.  I am hoping that the current NA target works out, but if not, one to consider.
