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

No use me having the pink ones as mine is a proper Evora with no back seats!

I think you guys are getting confused - I am very happy without the cupholders, the armchairs, the covers, and all the other useless stuff mentioned including naff crap plastic covers for the runners. I like my car au natural like it came from the factory.

That other stuff is for MILFs and Porsche owners.

Mentioning no names, but anyone feeling sniffy about my planned use of stick-on felt for my "naff plastic covers for the [410] seat runners" - think someone called them that - might like to note what I've just read two minutes ago in the Telegraph report about the Volvo XC40:

"Savings have been made, of course................ the door facings are a weird felt made from recycled drinks bottles."

Nailed on for my next project.

You obviously played with too much fuzzy felt as a kid. I had a scalextric!   Hahaha....

Probably why I like Lotus as their cars corner with full on magnatraction...

@C8RKH points out that the 410 has the little chubby by the steering wheel potentially for a phone.  I tried it and unless you have a v short phone it doesn't stay there for long.  Andy - you will find that out for yourself after the running in period!.  Revving it out is sooooo much fun.  Also, I am at the 5k miles point and the engine is starting to do more pops on the overrun - but not many

( Stamping feet now ) I WANT pops!

Oh and a spot of blue tack keeps the phone sorted ;)

All this talk of where to put ones phone.  I use these vent mounts in all my cars, including the Exige.

Works a treat , plus I always run Waze to warn me where plod are hanging out that day  ;)

Re exhaust, just wait until the car is run in and you can scream it around to the red line with the exhaust howling,  Think you might like it then 😈

Has anyone retro-fitted a reverse cam and double din head unit (not as rude as it sounds) to a 410?  Is the wiring in place as part of the standard loom?

They have both of these things standard? 

Not standard but an option however I do believe the wiring is there for tge head unit and these days you can use a BT connection for tge reversing camera though easy to wire in as I had it done on my S1 Evora.

I was wondering if there was a software update to have the option to use the rear camera when not in rear drive (at least on the auto it is the only way the camera shows anything despite having a rear camera function on the audio unit)

M U S T be possible, because I saw a vid from the S1, think from the USA in which the evora was driving forward and the screen showed the landscape behind the car. I have asked on this on this Forum Long ago but no hint on that unfortunately

The pioneer unit (sph da120) installed in my S1 by the previous owner has the option to use the camera full time.  I presume the camera is powered off the reversing light or similar though as i only get a black screen until reverse is selected. The camera angle would be rubbish for a rear view mirror with a screen full of number plate,  i'd want it installed up in the engine cover slats on a 410...

Not sure if anyone has shared the numbers for the Sport 410 from a certificate of provenance. I received mine and the headline figures are as follows;

  • 72 cars built
  • 25 for the UK

A rare beast indeed.

Ooooh, nice to know. Thanks for that @ricvx

I am hoping that in the future the 410Sport will be a bit like the Esprit Sport 300 and a bit of a rare but perfectly formed beast appreciated by real driving aficionado's.

Had my Fire Red out on Sunday with the LEGS outing and just fell in love with it all over again. The colour int he sun was amazing. Also, with Stephen's Fire Red Exige 380 there too, wow........

Only let down by the red marker on the steering wheel - why the fuck is it not yellow?

Ok, so I’ve kind of fallen in love with the 410. I drove the 400 a while ago and was super impressed. But the 410. Just wow. And all that carbon 😍

I drove the following earlier today (took a massive road trip from London!)

I’d want to retrofit a screen to the Grey. The Yellow spec is spot on. Both auto and manual great to drive. The Grey is an ex press car, but was used mainly for media shots only I’ve been told (not track). The yellow is a demo car @ Oakmere.

Im driving the green 410 at Silverstone this weekend and will decide between the 3 after. But leaning towards the Grey. 

To any Londoners, what are thoughts on auto vs manual? Also, I never knew colour choice could be this agonising 😫

Welcome, the colour choice is worth hours of sleepless nights and moments of absolute decision followed minutes later by a change of mind....

@Sizona is a central Londoner , his GT430 is auto. There will be more choice non auto but only you’ll know if a manual (any manual) is sufferable due to traffic and queuing . The latest auto though is really enjoyable and no less fun.

Anyway colours...😁
