Looks good.

Do a search in the relevant area of TLF. I know that the older Lotus cars had washers between the seat runners and the body. (My S4 has and I am leaving them there as I am a shortarse.) I am not sure if the Evora has them as well?

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

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Very nice! Epic upgrade on the dampers too, the Ohlins really are something special!

I saw this on ES motorsports website.  It's had some engine upgrade too I believe.  Have you been able to compare it to a standard Evora 400? be interested to hear the sort of difference  the engine upgrade have made.

I think you're get used to the seat hight assuming this is the same as the previous generation Evora.

All the Best

Unusual, red dash and centre, but black seats and door cards. I assume one or other has been changed?

It seems that he previous owner did like a tinker. Do you have the full list of mods?

I've had mine 5 years and it still feels too high, especially compared to the S1. Would love to drop them if I could.

The ES web site says it was a "prototype" car so think (but don't know) one of the early 400 test cars?

Yep that’s pretty much the spec. The interior is how it left the factory at lotus. 
the suspension set up is bloody excellent and come with a life time warranty. I need to compare it to a stock 400, but it does go like an absolute rocket. Much faster than my M3.

condition wise it is genuinely immaculate and I couldn’t be happier with it.

Also felt the Sparcos were sitting too high for me. Went for the Carbon 410 Sport seats and driving position is now spot on. 

I tried out @C8RKH car on one of our IOM trips, my hip bone digs into the carbon seat on both sides, so short of surgery to remove a couple of chunks of bone not an option for me.

It would be worth the surgery Colin and would add lightness! :)

Looks and sounds stunning with spec sheet Andy posted. Silver always look great on a 400 and the interior matches the colour spot. Lotus made a mistake not to offer that interior colour combination to future customers.
