Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Fab! I don't think I could ever get my 276 horses to power me to 167mph, though that is still 1mph shy of the official normally aspirated Evora top speed. Must try harder.....

Seems my 400 likes to eat grasshoppers, their about 1/2" deep at the base of the radiator but only one or two on it. Weird bit didn't see any as I was driving.

Not a Lotus, but his experience of using the Mclaren GT for road trip really chimed with my own experience of doing similar in my Evora. 

Squint a bit (and ignore the fact that our cars don't have 600hp, which you can rarely use anyway) and our experience must be 98% of what you get for £200k, and we get a better brake feel and engine sound to boot!

 

 

at !0:30 in the vid he's talking about how good the steering is and says "it has the Lotus feel".  McLaren will be pleased!  He tested an Evora GT with a big smile on his face...

I use my Launch Edition for Calais to Agde, or vice versa,  and cross the Millau Viaduct so I found his journey interesting - I wouldn't go that way to get to NIce though.  My trip is 666 miles so I do it in a single hit with just fuel stops, just over 9 hours, but Péage Tolls total 73€.  I've tried the scenic off motorway roads but don't make decent progress - and since the 80kmph (50mph) speed limit on the open road there are too many 'boys in blue' with cameras.

Phil, the national limit is still 90 kph (56) unless otherwise signed as 80.

 

That's interesting - the news just said that from 1 July 2018, 400,000km of roads would reduce to 80kph - are you saying that it only applies if it explicitly says 80 is the limit?

Yep. It was implemented nationwide but gillets jaunes protests resulted in a typical French compromise. The national limit stays the same at 90, but if local authorities want to apply the 80 kph they can.

There's a long history and culture of democracy working from the local level upwards. Local communities go there own way and resent any interference from outside, whether thats regional or national.  The 90 kph just came at the wrong time as Macron seeks to impose what the regions see as Parisien rules on the rest of the country.

Very local. Our kids used to go to the same playgroups. 
 

(I thought that there is another vid where Jake is ‘scared sensible’ by Mr Donnelly. But I can’t find it).

The Epsom Green Evora in the background behind the TV screens in the IAA Frankfurt photo now has black 19/20 inch design wheels and lives in Sweden :) 

Yours? That's a lovely colour, almost as nice as Motorsport Green! Welcome to TLF, we need to talk about your username :lol:
