Evora Picture & Video Thread

Recommended Posts

@SteveIOM it's always sunny in Ramsey. :P

Nice to see the cars at the Ramsey Park Hotel - our usual haunt, although this year we are at the Mannin in Douglas as we left it too late to book.

@C8RKH Don't worry, as a Lotus Group we have had sunny weather for the last 3 years. I went back just after last years trip (like 4 days later) with the family and we got drowned - so I've taken the allocation of rain on the groups behalf.

@DJW bugger, I'd hoped I'd be the first to introduce the Island to a 400 Auto :wallbash:. I have in my head the concept of how good the paddles will be going up the gooseneck :scared:. Soon there will be one living on the Island.

ps - could you tell yet what they are building next door to the Hotel - they had only just started it last year and we were not sure if it was going to be an extension?

pps - Did you have someone from Evo with you - that looks like their MINI JCW Challenge?

Re Mini, it could have been one of the S9S guys as quite a few of them bought them for track days

That's decided it for me.

I was debating between Win Ace's GTE replica bumper and this McLaren-inspired offering - definitely going the Macca route now.

Just got to get my car back on the road first of course, which hopefully won't be too long now that the replacement clutch master cylinder is winging it's way here from the good ole US of A.

Hi David, I was always narrowed down to the McLaren esque front but was still on the fence when we dried up the planning.  That is however stunning and I'm with you on that.  My house build is just about finished and I could be up for a joint purchase again in a few months if you were considering resurrecting the thread. 

 

Taylor that is a stunning car. :wub:  What source for the rear spoiler?  I see you have also done the air intakes scoops which I was going to go for as well.

Just picked this up from Bell and Colvill, many thanks to Jamie and Miguel for being so helpful throughout.

I couldn't be happier, and my kid who fits in the back absolutely loves it too! What a car!

Beautiful car you've got there. Out of curiosity how old is you kid? (I'm just trying to get an idea of what room there is in the back)

You should be Ok until about 11 or so. Then rather depends how tall they are and how tall your wife is. Not much chance behind me as only about 3 inches between my seat and the rear seat, although I have been know to sit uncomfortably for short journeys to get someone behind me.

Doing long trips through Europe I drive with my seat back (driver privilege), front passenger has to put their seat forward and two rear seat passengers share the rear foot well behind the passenger. Might sound terrible to some people but we found it much more fun than taking a people carrier, even when three were adult and the youngest was an above average height 14-year old girl (now about to turn 16 and taller than her Mum).

If they keep finding it fun you could well be alright until 14 or 15 as boys often have their grow spurts a little later than girls. Plus as boys are often then getting car obsessed who knows. I've never forced my girls to come in the Evora, but they choose to even when there are more comfortable options. I just have to agree to stops every 2 hours.
