Evora GTE Registry

These cars are rather 'whooshey' aren't they? (Is that a word?)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

The DVLA managed to register my car a little quicker than I expected so I was able to collect it on Friday. A very special day for me and a very special car. A big thanks to Russell and his team at Lo

GTE #15 has just landed in the south of France  :

THx, I've already passed the information to Komotec. To end the week on a better note, Komotec are certain that GTE #11 will return. Probably better than ever.

Swiss TVA (VAT) is 8%. Alan is correct, you would have to pay 20% VAT if you import the car to UK and I believe import duty but not sure what the import duty is.

Just found these pictures and have fallen in Love with the car. Is this GTE owned by anyone on here? The colour is apparently Chrome Red and it is just OMG gorgeous to my eyes....

Yes it looks great in the photo's though didn't look quite so great last time I saw it.......

It was still a similar colour at the bottom but going through various shades through orange as you looked higher to almost chrome at the top of the rear quarters.

Somewhat faded I'm afraid, it wasn't one of the 20 to be re-built.

That's the Swizzy Evora and I believe it's now in Thailand.

Ah, OK, thanks Chaps. It's shame. She looked wonderful, though I guess like all film stars with age the colour, looks and glamour all fade. Still, the archive pictures paint a real purddy picture. An Evora 400 with black pack in that colour would look yummy too.

Looks OK in the background in this photo.   The spoiler is missing I think.

Was that photo taken relatively recently (ie when you bought the carbon car)?

I remember the red car @ Motorports but I don't think that it was the chrome red car.

The red one in Alan's pic isn't the swizz beatz car, that is the red Beirut car which was in the airport raffle draw.

As ishy say's it hadn't weathered well at all, it had really bad sun bleaching. Last time I saw it it looked like someone had got the cheapest shiny Christmas paper and wrapped it in it. It looked terrible and I can t imagine it looked that good to start with tbh, even when it was all one uniform shade.

Not sure where the swizz car is now, it hadnt been scrapped off along with the others and may have been sold as track use only. The red Beirut car is still in existence also, again track use only.

That must be an old pic though bibs, it didn't look anywhere near as good as it does in that picture when I saw it a couple of months ago... Can't believe anyone would repaint it that colour, cost in excess of 10k the first time round???

I thought it had gone somewhere a little more local than that.

I did enjoy ripping the piss out of Swizzy at the time for his revolutionary Lotus which he, err, had painted red. We ran a campaign for people to vote on how much of a monumentally bad idea it was to have him involved with the company and he engaged his 650k+ followers to vote him up! Was quite funny but ultimately, another very sad Bahar idea.

You think this car is Thailand is another Chrome Red Evora and not the Swizzy one? I find it incredible anyone would choose to paint their car that colour. It was hugely expensive and hugely troublesome paint.

Forget for a minute the expense and the troublesome paint and look at the pictures I posted - I find it incredible how any one would not want that paint.

Now, take off the rose tinted specs and do the research and find out it is a troublesome paint and it will cost 10k - OK, I find it incredible anyone would do it!  Doesn't mean when done it ain't drop dead gorgeous though... :)
