Evora Picture & Video Thread

Added some lightness today -   seat removed to fix the tilt release mechanism, lucky the wife does not want to go out in it with me....Took her out in it for the first time yesterday, she found the seat hard along the joins in the fabric. She can't complain now. Seat gone to professional trimmers.

When I bought mine she said ‘that looks nice- much better than the other one(exige) I might even have a drive- took her out last weekend ‘bloody hell it’s like a roller coaster I’m not driving that🤣

Stick one of those nice fake electric coal fires in the footwell and she can curl up on the carpet and feel right at home!

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

Evora Part 4....

Devon and Cornwall have a GT410 sport for shows - not for real police work. Not seen this before. Taken at the Devon County show today.

Had a chat with the sergeant who drives it - this is an auto gearbox car - he did not like the auto much.

Mostly fair but a little harsh in places? I'm not sure the comparison to the Esprit is all that fair, yes the Evora uses some more modern materials but it's also up against more modern safety standards and, let's face it, market dynamics that require more from it.

Looks good, bit a McLaren at the front and the rear wing completes the look .

I got out and checked the slip before I rolled the car back onto it. A couple of kids were playing in the water and asked if I was  coming down in the car - they looked disappointed when I said that I wasn’t going all the way into the water….

I was hoping to emulate a pic I took about 12yrs ago at this spot with my wife’s Disco3 dipping a toe in the water - unfortunately the Loch level is a bit lower at the moment.

Set off without my phone so parked across my drive to go in house to get it ..  going back to my car with phone in hand I thought "Wow, what a  great looking car I drive .."

She's alive! 🥰 I'd lost track of current owner!  Good to see one of the oldest around still looking so good.  What mileage are you up to now?  I'm still driving my 4th one.

Listening to some Chris Harris podcast interviews tonight whilst in the garage doing fluids n stuff on the Evora and he mentioned his original internet video channel , Drivers Republic , I think it was Harris , Jethro Bovingdon and Dickie Meaden ... Back in 08/09 anyway after doing some YouTube hunting found these two from the start of the Evora days.. both interesting and I don't think I've seen them before on here , the best is the in car one with Dickie Meaden and Matt Becker talking Evora on Road testing (basically talking heads interview whilst driving round Hethel) and then the test track. 

And this one a chat with the design team

Bit low Res but of their time as they say !

It's a lovely part of the world and some great driving roads too.

Never mind emulating the Disco pic, you know we're all waiting for you to emulate this one :)
