Ah, Mr Ferguson's old car. I knew head two (white and the carbon one) but had not realised he's had three!  Lucky, lucky man! :)

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!

Always the same question: is it possible to convert an evora s to a gte? yes, the mansory bodykit cost more or less 50.000€ + vat + labour anda there are no problem, if someone has got money... but the wider wishbone? Is it possible buy them from lotus? and the wheels?

 

I'm still in love with the gte and I think I'll buy one or make one...

Andrea, “your” car is still in my garage.

How about one of the 4 Stratton GTs? They’re all LHD. The pound has fallen against the euro, they’ve been for sale for a year or so, Coronavirus has hit and Stratton has just taken the prices off their website, so they must be getting pretty desperate to sell. Maybe all the stars are aligning for you. That is assuming you can register and use it in Italy. Otherwise wait for another UK LHD owner to sell, or ask on here. I wouldn’t try and build a replica. It’s a bottomless pit of money like aerobat on here. Good luck.

Edit: Mansory themselves were promoting a yellow LHD GTE last year. It’s on their website under Lotus. Might be worth a phone call to see if it is for sale? Otherwise they could make you another.

And my understanding is that the wider wishbones are not available. Anywhere.

 

Hope you do get a GTE Andrea as they are wonderful cars :) Live your dream buddy.

@LotusLeftLotusRight your car is amazing but to expansive now for me... and it isn't 2+2! the 2+2 gte are very rare! I know is expansive also make a replica, but I could spend money not in one time...

I've asked about stratton gt, but I'm not convinced about it, very beautiful car but still a replica in my opinion (they did 5 car, how many sold? one? very strange... why only one?)

 

@C8RKH I'm asking here about the wishbones because I think that it' very difficult or impossible get them from lotus...

Yup, and I'm telling you you cannot get them. End of. Stratton bought the last spares up.

LHD. The only 2+2 manual GTE. Starlight black. #4. Used to have the white interior, changed to sports racer black during the rebuild.

No. But Stratton has 4 continuation models for sale right now and there is a deal to be done surely. Even including putting the rear seats back in I'm sure....

That would require stripping the car back to the chassis. Isn't gonna happen unless some very serious £ are involved! 

88 Esprit NA, 89 Esprit Turbo SE, Evora, Evora S, Evora IPS, Evora S IPS, Evora S IPS SR, Evora 400, Elise S1, Elise S1 111s, Evora GT410 Sport

Mine and its lhd twin, lotusleftlotusright lhd and the black rhd newcastle car are the only 2+2s. 

The fact i wanted a rhd 2+2 only gave me choice of all black or mine. 

Ive never kept a car this long before, still love it!

I know exactly where you're coming from.   No GTE's were sent to North America, so I had to build one, as you are asking about.   I started with a LHD Evora S IPS, and made it into a GTE/ GT350 replica.   Not exactly popular with original owners, who felt that replicas might reduce the value of the original cars.   All my parts are OME, either from Lotus or Mansory.   Living in North America, the parts were ordered through a company called British Racing Group, although they are no longer in business.   You can check out the build on this forum, going back to March 2016.   Just search "Aerobat's Evora Project".
