Looks like the same bit of road I pictured a rented e-type at about 6yrs ago (?)

Apologies for thread drift.

Yep - that sounds possible Andy. Mrs mik had rented the e-type for my birthday from Caledonian Classics, but only for 4hrs so we tooled around the area.

Drove up there in my VXR8 - essentially a 6.2 HSV Clubsport with better brakes and other detail changes. Apparently the next customer arriving to pick up the Healey 3000 was an Aussie. He got extremely excited and said he had no idea they had a "Clubby" too, and could he switch his hire to that instead? The owner said he was absolutely gutted to hear it was another customers car. 🤣

I have been thinking that the design of the 400 was not a product of Russell Carr? (Evora s1 yes, 410 Gt yes....) ?

Does anybody has info on that?

You can’t post a photo like this with no back story. Who, how, why, where? :)

Just because it was a nice day really. Although it might end up being a very expensive afternoon for @Gm77 and @andyj007 ...

It was a celebration of the highest density of privately owned Evora in the world! All within 2 miles, and we were missing one...

Ah, so that's why Endeavour Lotus has opened in Colchester...😄.   Mine is 12 miles from Gt Horkesley.

Like the look of the old one, but I honestly think the latest shape of Evora's, in particular the revised front and rear end ones after the base 400 and early 410 Sport, are the best looking. I do not however, like the GT 430 wheels with the silver lip.

Phil, if you’re that close you’ll have to join us next time round! If you fancy it drop me a PM with your mobile number and I’ll add you to the WhatsApp group for the next get together.

I think car styling has gone ugly in the last five years or so, just compare the Lexus RX400H to the RX450H for example.  Still think the Evora Launch Edition is 'blue shark' and 400 and after are 'basking shark' styling.
