Evora: My first Lotus.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

After wanting a Lotus for years (Esprit, Elise etc.), I finally acheived owner status in December by buying an Evora (N/A) to replace a Porsche Boxster 2.7 (987.1). Spec as follows:-

 

Evora N/A (MY11)

Empire Green / Oyster Leather

Tech, Sport & Premium Packs

CR Box

Forged Alloy Wheels

Reverse Camera

Powerfold mirrors (retrofitted at a cost of £9.09 - thanks, TLF)

I am loving it so far, but after seeing an Ardent red Evora on the road this weekend, I might start saving for a MY12 in that colour.

 

Cheers,

Ian

Empire green is a stunning colour, looks well on the wheels too. Welcome to TLF and glad you got a good deal on the mirrors  :)

Welcome and great choice of car.  I think I've only seen one Empire Green one - is that the ex-factory car that Scott Walker was advertising a few months ago?  Used to belong to one of the Advisory Board?

Hi Tom,

 

This was a Lotus management car which was then sold to Caterham (I think to do with the F1 business deal shenanigans). I think Scott Walker had it up for sale between these two owning it. The link is still up on his site:

Interestingly, he lists it with the standard gearbox, but it definitely has the CR box fitted.

Ah, two different Empire Green cars but I think both have passed through Scott's hands at some point.  I think the tan interior one was the chap on the Advisory Board.

His Evora now belongs to Cathal in SE London.

Empire Green with Oyster leather just jumped to the top of my list of favorites.  Looks really sharp! 

 

Welcome to the forum, and excellent choice of first Lotus!  :)

Thanks for all the positive comments. I suspected I had made a good choice when another father ran across the school car park to sit in the Evora (he has a 911 997.2 C2s). :-)
