Some initial impressions.


Recommended Posts

I drive the car about 200 miles yesterday and have some initial thoughts.

Firstly... It looks and sounds epic!!! It is a very special car indeed. The interior is even better than I remembered and the red interior is superb! 

We all know about the drive and feel and it is nothing short of sublime. The suspension is just insane at how well it takes bumps. I have no negatives so far with even the switch gear being more solid than I remember ?!?!

it pulls and generates speed so nicely and in sports mode.... Wow

just had a good play with the nav unit and not only is it intuitive it works very well! Bluetooth streaming is great. The only question I have is I don't seem to be able to bring up multiple route selection when setting a destination??? Does it have this feature??

my wife was less than impressed with the leg space and I was surprised how cramped she was. This was with the seat all the way forward, my daughter in her recaro Young sport in the back with knee touching my wife's chair at the back and the seat base removed!!! I have this morning removed the seat back and blinds that makes some difference! About 2 inches (if not more) extra leg room. 

I am loving the car so far and look forward to meeting some of you. I'll be sure to have my car trailed and bubble wrapped to get it to and from and meets. ?

Good to hear you are pleased with it :thumbup:

No doubt your daughter will have more room once she can use just a booster seat, we didn't have any problems with an 8 year old in the back of ours.

Re the SatNav alternative route, on my Alpine 920 unit it is there but takes some finding, it is not in a logical place  and each time I want to use it I can never remember where it isB-)

Congrats on your new purchase Stuart, do we get to see any pictures? I did think to myself on the M25 yesterday if I would catch a glimpse of your lovely new white Evora ;)
