That Evora SR looks absolutely mint!

Thanks. It is. 6 years old now. 10400 miles and not so much as a stone chip or squashed fly to be had. 😊👍

And Yes, it does need to be used more I agree. 😁

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

My new acquisition. Can't believe I've finally got one! 

Are we talking about Racing Green Lotus'?  Here's the most recent one of it being clean, at Caffeine & Machine. 8,300 miles in five months means it's rarely clean! 

Some impressiones from the Nürburgring 26-27.07.20 (driver corse XL Nordschleife) in the third photo you can see the vehicles of my training group there were a total of 20 groups.

A shade over 1400 but you still take the prize for longest journey 😁

The Evora does look stunning in bright yellow with black pack.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

First use of Evora cup-holder for my socially-distanced meet with a pal:

Love the Carbon work from prodrive, that is lovely. Ohh and 11.5 kg saved just with the lid. 😁

Nice. Where did you get it from?

Yup - you can get a nice can of cold Coke and a snickers bar in there for that break half way through an intense, fast, 4 hour drive on gods own roads.....

It's amazing how even now, after 10 years, people are finding out new things about the S1 Evora. In my mind, the BEST car model (model not variant) ever produced by Lotus (looking at it from all round ability, packaging, design, technology etc). Now that early S1's are coming to the market at £23-25k, in great condition with reasonable miles, I'm seriously looking at getting an early NA again to sit alongside my 410 Sport. Was only speaking to the great god @Bibs on the phone the other day about how much I miss the NA I had.

Although I’ve not had mine long I must say the S1 ticks all the boxes for good fun driving, it’s really quiet and pleasant on the motorway feeling very planted and safe but comes alive on the B roads with a lovely sound. One thing I find especially in the South West where there aren’t many around is it starts lots of conversations. I find German car drivers seem to attract to it the most.

People say the S1 is a good car so I take that with a smile as never had the fortune to try a later model out yet. What’s the thing that brings people back to the original concept, we see this with early Esprit’s as well albeit it took a decade or so longer that time.

I suppose keeping the roof grey and not fitting a black pack is the purist way forward?

I love the looks of the S1, in grey, 🙂 but I also like the look of the gt 410/430. I'd fit the rear bumper of the GT if I could get hold of an original one at a good price.

Nice appraisal Andy, I think I need to get it off SORN and fall in love with it again, if only I had the space for an Early Esprit and the Evora, the thought of leaving it outside just kills me.

Perhaps the mini should go instead.......Nah now that is a real drivers fun machine 😂

My experience with outdoor covers has not been good over winter especially on a lotus with micro blisters appearing which is a nightmare, mind the Evora may fair better than early Esprit’s.

I think my concern would also be scratching as mines pretty much unmarked.

The real answer is to move which we talk about every year but I always seem to have a car in thousands of bits being rebuilt which scuppers that 😁

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: my S1 LE had the most powerful brakes l’ve ever experienced. This is where I notice the reduced weight over the supercharged cars. Sure you might not be able to out accelerate them, but you can certainly outbrake them into a bend.
