Great looking car, congratulations!  A perfect time of year to enjoy a new car as well.

I really like the 410, it is a very attractive proposition and must be very special indeed for you to make the move from your Cup.  It will be really interesting to hear how you get on with the car, you must be looking forward to getting the running in complete. :)

@Stubox one point of interest, are there still speakers in your car? In the previous 410s I have seen that have had the stereo "deleted", the speakers (and presumably wiring) remain, with the head unit itself being the obvious major omission.

@Stubox Many congrats!  Welcome to the  "only +10hp & its all about the tyres" club. :devil:

MS black looks stunning and will be a nice subtle contrast with the CF. The gold flecks coming through in direct light look absolutely class in the picture; so must be something else to the naked eye. Like you I'm finding the 1000 mile service point cannot come around soon enough.

Health to drive. :thumbsup:

When the sun went it, it looked a very deep black, no gold at all. It's quite a lovely paint job, very nice indeed.

That's fun because on the French service book of the car, they kept the 1000 but only turned it in km instead of miles :lol:

So run-in is not so long here ?!? :stuart:

 

Stunning car BTW

That's because you all drive so slow over there anyway...:driving::sofa:

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

Does anyone have any thoughts way Central Lotus 410 as not sold apart from it being a auto it's seems to be a very good price £75000. It's a really nice colour combination and yes I know it's a ex press car?

Absolutely no idea unless 410 buyers are allergic to autos. While I applaud that if it is the case it's very unlikely. Looks like a great way to dodge most of the depreciation for anyone who wanted a grey auto 410.

I'm gonna make a few guesses here

1. If 410 buyers are the same people who bought Exiges, the Exige auto never sold very well. The 400 Auto is better than the IPS but I suspect the lure of a LSD an the extra revs would be a serious temptation for any performance driver.
2. It is a "used" car, so they can't offer 50/50 on it. This happened when the 400 came out. All the dealer demo cars had to be sold at very competitive prices because they couldn't compete with 0% finance. A new 410 at 82K would be potentially cheaper than this if you're looking at buying on finance - depending on your own situation.
3. Certain dealer demo cars just take a long time to shift (There are dealers who have had the same Evora demo car for well over a year)
4. 410 owners are perhaps the kind of people who are happy to wait a bit and order cars exactly to their spec.
5. People are usually very wary of a car that might have been used for any kind of "press" activity.
6. Out of date websites never look good. The car is advertised at different prices in different places, and the site says it is the "only 410 in the country".

Just my guesses. It will sell I am sure.

maybe also be that it has absolutely no extras... it looks like it has no A/C, obviously no stereo, and hence no sound insulation.  Thats a pretty hardcore spec which would only be chosen by a "purist" (I hate that word) who would most likely want it in manual...  I mean, if you are keeping it in its lightest possible form for maximum performance, it just seems strange to then choose the "remove LSD" option.

It's an attractive car to me and looked several times but the auto and lack of LSD aren't to my liking and of course it's over priced if you have to finance it. Cheaper to buy new on a 50/50 and get vthe full warranty and in your spec. As time goes on this car seems more expensive but would think there is a deal to be done if you like/need auto.

 

Trevor.

I'll get around to it at some point.

I borrowed this car for the day and can confirm that it has AC and the sound insulation pack. There was no head unit, but the speakers seem to be in place. It currently has PSS rather than the cup 2 tyres, and it felt completely different to my 400 - the only possible explanation for this is the stripe on the side.... :P

Whilst I wouldn't go for an auto, I was very impressed by the one in this car.

When I asked about the car and mentioned the stereo they told me it's just the head unit missing and they could fit one, all the speakers and wiring is there and yes it as AC, it looks great in the flesh being a auto put me off, just surprised they had so long and sure there is deal there somewhere don't seem a bad price now, 400s with a lot more mileage on them go for not much less then this.
