I love the Motorsport black with its gold flake

Hi Julian, congrats nice choice. Its a lovely colour up there with Storm Black from Aston. It does show swirls in the paintwork as most blacks do but because you'll be showing people the flecks I'll be getting it machine polished and covered in a ceramic coat (gyeon I think) to give it a chance. Carbon will be just waxed. Thoroughly enjoying mine as it closes in on the 1000 mile service.

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

Write-up is done. Just had a minor setback with video, computer is full so spent this afternoon trying to free up some space.

Nice to know someone thinks it's worth the effort!

:thumbup:

 

Worth the effort? I watch everything you make and enjoy it fully. Always a good moment when my computer tells me you've uploaded something new. 

I've especially enjoyed the ownership reviews. Thanks for taking the time to put them together, I know what it takes and it's so much more than most people would realise.

Looks amazing in yellow with the silver wheels.

Got to say I am not a big fan of silver wheels, but they look epic on a yellow 410

great write up and much appreciated!! Fantastic stuff.  I will watch the video tonight, but from the way you write about the 410, it seems as though someone is about to become an owner.............. Great work.

 

Also, were there harnesses in the 410? If not, do you think that makes a difference in the lap times? More of a general question as I have never sat in a car with harnesses before.

Spotted the difference... gloves in V6 and no gloves in 410 :lol:

Excellent write-up. Tallies with my own experience that they are a great car on track (even in lowly 400 form) - I'd love to know what that car actually weighs compared to your Exige, as it probably represents a fairly accurate "real world" spec - Lotus said to me they expect very few, if any, customers to have the lightest spec possible.

I think this goes to show the excellent work done by Roger Becker, MJK and the team with the Evora - it's no mean feat to keep up with an Exige on track. I wonder if our friends in Australia and the USA probably benefit from the charge cooled engine more than we do too?

this sticker could be perfect on a 410 Sport... and on @C8RKH's car :P !

Perfect. Where do i get one? :)

In the future, all children will be made in a test tube and they will be educated whilst they are growing in there through some funky new bio-electronics - it will save their parents a fortune, not they will know who their pareants are as all egg and sperm donations would have been harvested from volunteers.  

They will be hatched at 16, given two years of physical exercise to get their bodies in to shape, tests to ensure the education worked, and then they will go straight into a factory to make cars with only two seats, as, with no children under 18 allowed, you will not need the extra seats.

What a perfect world. must create a cunning plan to get us there soon. Lotus will thrive as it won't have to worry about the extra cost and crash tests for 2 no longer needed seats in their sports cars.  The 410 and it's siblings will reign supreme.
