Hi  all.

Just to say hi to everyone, as this is the first time on this forum. I'm normally found on the SELOC site as the last Lotus I had was a Elise RaceTec, about 10 years ago. I'm now on the hunt for an Evora -400 and have found a couple of cars I could be interested in.

I've done a little research regarding the 400, but would really appreciate any input from you guys on what to look for when buying a 400. Would love your input concerning the following cars, or even better if someone on could shed light on the history of either car. I don't have too much details to go by, but out of the two I would prefer the car at Silverstone.

The Silverstone car was a trad in for a 410. Its running in service and first service was done by Snows Lotus in Southampton, so I assume the owner came from the south? The second service was done by Silverstone.

The Hendy car was originally sold by them and has had 3 owners, each time the car went back to Hendy as a trade in ,the last time it was for a Aston. Any details would be a real help, thanks.

Welcome to TLF, Moonus. 👋

You might have noticed that I’ve merged your post in the Evora section with the ‘Evora market watch’ thread. If you’ve not been through it already, this is probably the best starting point for your Evora 400 hunt. 

There is also the ‘Definitive Buyers Guide’ thread (& Google document) which you will probably find very useful:

In essence, the very early 400s (ie 2015) had a few manufacturing niggles but these were soon ironed out on the later cars. 

Finally (for the time being!), a post in the Evora wanted section might get you an offer from a current owner who is looking to upgrade (especially with the new Type 131 just around the corner):
