@21gg Your's is still the best to my eyes. Just love the colour combo...  Can understand why it's an absolute keeper.

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!

It really is a great colour combination.   And nothing beats those lines and curves .....

21gg and I are among the last of the original owners. I like to occasionally revisit this thread to gauge the excitement as each car was ordered. My turn came at the top of page 2. Hard to believe it’s already over 5 years ago.

Scary isn't it!!

Still love mine and it's going nowhere!!  Need to take it for a blast!!

Strattons but they can be a bit hit and miss to deal with. As far as i know, and hope to be proved wrong, but don't think the factory have anything to do with them since selling strattons all the spares. 

How bad is the crack? Ive only ever parked forward once 😂, i repaired mine with a knife and some clear lacquer. The problem i have is that it is bonded on as well as bolted! 🙄

Didn’t one owner (Domguy?) replace his with a wooden one? I think he was damaging it on London speed bumps. Not a problem, now he and his car are in Malta! I also have a recollection that the green Stratton GT at Lotus 70 had a non c/f front lip, so maybe they don’t have any left either.

I would try Mansory themselves. They still advertise the GTE body kit on their website. It won’t be cheap, but at least you’ll be getting the OEM part.

Stratton don't have any, we'll they didn't when I sold my silver car in 2017. The sales guy at Hoffmans caught it on a protruding steel bolt as he was moving it around site. He was very honest and called me immediately to tell me about the damage. They contacted Stratton but they had non for sale, the ones they had were for their builds. With my agreement they sent it to Reverie for repairs at their cost. Came back looking like new, I would look to contact Reverie as it will be way cheaper than mansory

My GTE insurance is up for renewal. What UK insurance companies are owners using? I'm currently with AIB and they are asking for a validated valuation. Who can provide that or have any GTEs sold recently?

Aib look after mine, i did have it on agreed value of £100k but last year they wouldnt go over £90k. My argument was 2 fold, value wise its the cost to rebuild it /make a new one, so price of an age appropriate evora, mansory parts and cost of conversion. Secondly, im effectivley insuring £100k irrelevent of what it is, but they didnt see it that way. I had a bit if fun and games last year with renewal values which i get fed up with but it is a good policy.

AIB don't seem to be accepting a 90k valuation and are looking for some evidence. Either a recent sale or a valuation, any ideas?

You could reference the Stratton GTs at £85K.

I’m with Henderson Taylor on £90k.  Very few GTE sales in UK, if any, in past 12 months. There is a new owner on here, but his came in from abroad, so probably not advertised in UK. 

I did get a valuation from Lotus Silverstone in 2019 at £100k (they have always serviced the car), but that’s probably not practical for you, but you could ask a local Lotus or specialist dealer.
