Evora GTE Registry

Recommended Posts

She's home and her big bottom (just) fits in the garage.

 

Taking the wife and kids out in a minute, so no great photos yet, just from leaving the Lotus gatehouse.

Posted ImageAs you'll see from the mileage at collection, there's a whole lot of posing, I mean running-in, to do before I can give her some proper welly. In fact I haven't driven that sensibly since I passed my driving test in 1987. In the meantime it's a very nice place to spend time at the wheel. GTE stickers to be applied later.

Just over 100 miles so far, with another few to come this evening.

Well, a lot of soul searching and piggy bank raiding. The deposit is paid, V5 sent off to Jamie to get my plate on, people carrier up for sale along shortly with everything else I own that I havn't used in the last 6 months.

GTE no 2 is to be mine, planning to pick it up on the 8th ready for Brooklands. So at least 2 GTE's going to be in attendance now.

Those GTEs are like the Sirens of Greek mythology luring us all to wreck and ruin.

 

Still I can think of worse ways to go...

 

Well done Gav. I hope your garage is wide enough: we've already christened ours Kim Kardashian for that obvious reason.

Your not kidding! Ive worked the man maths and the next 12 months finances to the penny, if it all goes wrong then at least I would have had one, but hoping it wont.

It will fit in, just a case of if I can open the door!

It's very classy! 

 

When are you picking it up? I need to pop over and take some pics of it for our laser-etched blueprints!

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

Congratulations Gav,

 

Really pleased to hear you have joined the exclusive club.

 

The car looks amazing and we may bring a third GTE along with us to see it at Brooklands if our diary and wives allow.

 

Exciting times ahead.

 

All the best,

 

Jonny & Simon
