As C8RKH said, we would all like to see some photos.

You should duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well.   :) 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I kinda like the Emira shape styling whilst the Evora is a very stylish and purposeful design the Emira has gained the latest in design cues and technologies 

would I buy an Emira I guess if I was honest with myself I would however I can’t afford it so no point in useless speculation 😮

My parents had three TR7s. The best one was a gold 1981 5 speed manual convertible, which they let me drive ca. 1990. It had a Rover V8 transplant some time after we sold it. According to the DVLA website, it is still around but on SORN since 2015. I have no idea about current values. Yours looks lovely: what did it go for?

Like everything recently, they have been rising in value after a long time of minimal market interest. Got close to 10% of the Evora cost so I guess not bad depreciation over 40 years!!

Congratulations! That is a thing of beauty.  Whilst I'm in the queue for an Emira, I keep looking at the last iteration of Evora with no small amount of lust.

I drive both NA and a Sport410, having access to the 410 via a close pal. Love both but NA has something just 'right' about it, so I would be interested in your thoughts once you have bedded in your beautiful new car.

Congratulations.

Congratulations and what a fantastic colour combination dark green with beige interior. I went from a NA to a 410sport and never once regretted it. A totally different beast compared with the NA. Sure you are going to love it.

Thanks for that guys, particularly Scotty; my biggest fear is regretting selling the NA, so it's good to hear you never regretted selling yours. Will report back in a few weeks once the 410 is run in.
