'Phil's Spec' Evora GT 410

A good article I thought. We can bemoan the fact that most people prefer mainstream cars, but this article does at least explain why a few of us still love the Evora.

That's a really good article, and I love that the author wasn't scared to use emotion in his writing, I hate reading non descript spec sheets, his ability for description I think is brilliant, and captures what appears to be a fever.

True praise from a Juno I admire he was editor for Murray Publishers' Wheels and Australian Sports Car World Quarterly in the seventies.
