Evora 400 Test Drive... Thoughts


Recommended Posts

They're working on 460 and 500 kits aren't they? An Evora "500" would be awesome. As far as I understand it the engine is perfectly capable, the gearbox not so much

Not my pictures, but as I now have a (tentative) collection date and everything seems solid, I'd like to introduce to you all the conclusion to my search. Some changes have been made to the car s

I come from Jap rally replica background (JDM scoob & evos). I change cars every 18 months, but have owned a '06 Impreza Spec C Type RA for 10 years, which is an absolute keeper for weekend thrash

Car is still on temporary reg, should be changing over next week

But then there is nothing stopping you putting the KT430 OR 460 on the 400 is there and no doubt KT will be working on 400 specific upgrades.

I'm surprised you did not decide to go Exige 430 to Evora 410. Surely a moe appropriate route?

Yes and no. If I want the Evora its for its usability, it dosn't make sense to me to go to an Evora 410, I would prefer to stick to the Exige. Also in terms of upgrades I would not want to change the exhaust on the 400, Lotus got it spot on, it just sounds perfect. Maybe the cold air intake and ECU tune to extract an additional 30+ hp.

500 needs new internals. 460 is the addition of the inter cooler (in S1 models). The quoted ££ for a 500 (on a replacement engine basis) was quite staggering...

There certainly isn't an option for it in the options list, I am fairly sure there is a reason the LSD was deleted from the auto cars.

As far as I know the auto is more fragile than the manual, perhaps the LSD is too much strain for it

It's a completely different gearbox and as far an I'm aware there's no LSD option available for it.

Maybe when it came to handing over the money he ran away to the BMW shop and got an X6M!

Hope not........

Keep a look out for the elusive Jayemm bird submerged in shame in an X6m in the shallows. It'll be hard because it might be a metallic grey one.

Come on @JayEmm, you know it's bloody dangerous to go AWOL on this forum with all the old buggers on here..... ;)

Haven't spotted him in the shallows so far Andy. Here's Heather giving the dog some instruction though. "Now Belushi, you find him, and you bring him back........."

He will be at the Colchester meet tomorrow afternoon, hopefully so we can admire his new purchase B-) which had better not be some German crap

I"ll be taking some tools with me, which will double as torture tools (pliers for pulling teeth etc), to use in the interrogation just in case he turns up without it :lol:
