@Bibs don’t suppose you have or are able to get any performance data?

did DB’s team source a gearbox?

The V8 was put on dyno but its IP belongs to HWA I Believe, it was good for 600bhp + in base tune...  They could have gone with any number of gearbox as the engine bay set up allowed mechanical, automatic and DCT.

All the details in this week's Autocar 😀

So a hint of a truth at last... An Exige class and an Esprit class to replace the Evora and leaving the Elise to posterity. Hum it really is JMG's masterplan.

The silhouettes are a bit reminiscent of his era to me. The aspirations much the same so as well. Many folks thought he was crazy at the time. Such a shame the cars he presided over were shitcanned.

Only here once

Agree, they looked really good and distinctive. To me the Evija, while spectacular, is too far out designwise, hope the new 131 type is more grounded, especially so if they call it Esprit. Wouldn’t like to see an Evija ‘light’... the cars shown on the autocar cover leave me cold, tbh.

It was a very exiting time perhaps if the millions had kept coming......

Maybe I am completely wrong but doesn't that looks a bit like the 131 headlights under the car covers poster earlier?

(although I reckon it would be "a bit" odd to have it there first before the official presentation :D)

I would say the headlights look slimmer and there are wheels air vents that don't (?) exist in the Evora?

Thats just a standard US Evora GT in the picture. The vents over the wheel are from the GT430 and that was carried over for US GT.

The dash is Evora 4xx dash, standard front cover etc.

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!
