Strattons only had a couple of pairs of fronts last time I asked. The only option is to have some aftermarket ones made.

Looks to be a standard Evora wearing GTE panels.

It is still using standard Evora front wishbones. You can tell by how deep the front hubs on the wheels are set back in to the bodywork.

That's how it was, my A pillars, roof, side scoops and sale panel are painted as well but its not as noticeable in dark blue. The A pillar trims need to black/carbon on that. I notice its on standard 400 alloys, so presumably they are running spacers on the rear wheels?

You're right, it got standard wishbone and spacer

It’s not a GTE. It’s Stratton’s version (surplus GTE bits on an old Evora body).

You're right @LotusLeftLotusRight they've got 4 or 5 cars that are not suppossed to still existing :ph34r:

I still hope to can get one a day who was my favorite GTE when I saw them all at the factory before rebuilt....

Now I'd argue differently.  That is one of the original GTE's, The 20 cars the factory 'reworked' are GT350's from GTE's...

That exact above car is what inspired me to be one of first customers to have the colour 'Pewter' on a V6 cup car.

That cars is also briefly glimpsed in a car TV program from a couple of years ago. Can't remember which one now but you see that GTE in a background shot.
