Evora Sport 410


Recommended Posts

Yes, best seats for the car. Also the heaviest. I like the weight saving for the 410’s and 430’s but wouldn’t swap the Recaros for anything on an S1.

My new Baby! I think it is the first 410 on German roads  

Epic Spanish trip. 2800 miles including a 700 mile drive back to tunnel. 410 performed perfectly . 

410 ordered. Another Exige owner making the jump over to Team Evora, though there seems to be a fair bit of traffic both ways. Never had one before but always admired them and have thoroughly enj

The Sparcos are good, but agree, given a straight choice I’d have the Recaros.

Great video, but he mostly side stepped the issue.  The main competition for this car is a Porsche of some form, though he did say he liked the 410 better as a daily driver than the Cayman GT4.  The other interesting thing is that he seemed to have liked the 410 better than the second generation NSX and in his video on the NSX, he really liked that car.

Be interesting to see if he gets his hands on the GT430 if and when it gets to the States and what he has to say about that car.  Given the GT 430’s price point, there will be no getting around comparisons to either the 911 GTS or GT3.

He won’t. 

That was one of the last (if not the last) ‘One take’ videos from Mr Farah:

 

PS Is it worth pointing out to him that there is somewhere on the Evora to clip the fuel cap whilst refuelling? ;)

Yes and me too. :)  I cannot seem to work out where to clip the fuel cap, I remember reading a post here on TLF but cannot find it. 

On the flap that opens, there's a piece of plastic that it fits onto closest to the hinge. I'll take a pic tomorrow if you like :)

A couple of very minor errors. We're told that we don't get the 410's tune in the States.  It's the same as the 400 here due to the painful requirements it would engender to certify the 410 as a new car, so US 410s are rated identically to the 400.   And we all know the gas cap trick, right?  A good review and fun to watch as Matt goes gaga over our favorite sports car.

Lets not even go there with the 'extra' 10bhp! :whistle:

Car does look damn good fun on those canyon roads and sounds amazing. I'll agree that the supercharged cars can be inconsistent in responding to throttle sometimes. My V6 Cup could be also. Only a minor annoyance but I can't remember that being the case with the Evora S though for whatever reason. Get one right though and there are few more satisfying downshifts out there.

I still have a massive soft spot for the Sport 410 and still don't know why more of you haven't got one. B&C are having an Evora test drive event this weekend (weather permitting I guess?). Go and drive their black demo car. You can thank me later. :thumbup:

I can think of a very good reason why more, myself included, haven't got one.

It's called "cost to change" :P:P
