This is my new Evora GT 430 with special painting ( Gold Leaf) by hethel factory. The car is waiting for me at Komo Tec Germany. You can see the car this weekend in the KOMO-TEC Box in Nürburg /N

Thanks @Bibs and all.   What a feeling.  And it will be the only time in my life I am customer #1!   More pics and thoughts to follow.  But I can say this is a special car, very special.

I am equally pleased and amazed to see 430s in the wild so fast, given how long it took the 410 to go from announcement to production

Hope the seats don't squeak!     Only joking.........:sofa:  Superb colour that, lovely blue and will be an amazing car to see in the flesh.

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

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Congrats Mark!

The colour looks amazing ?

Do the run in on the Corsica trip ?

Look forward to seeing it in the flesh and getting a pax ride ?

Fast delivery indeed. B-)

Both of these seem to have the wiper parking in the conventional as opposed to the "touring car" position?

Well that is extremely fast unveil to market. 

Lotus is wasting no time, As JayEmm said it is kind of amazing in a way, pretty sure they learned loads while  engineering the Sport 410 and the GT430 is a more refine version of that car so it is not so surprising... Maybe.  The potential good news is that they must have reached their targeted number of orders to launch production this quickly.

Quoting myself :) - can any owners advise what is happening here? Do you get to choose one or the other? Or is this something that changed since the original car was shown?

Seeing these cars being delivered has genuinely put a smile on my face.  They both look epic, but that blue is just stunning.  Deeply envious - but in a good way.  Enjoy!

Lotus decided against it for customer cars. Same goes for the 380 Cup. Having seen a 380 Cup with central wiper I can confirm that it looks cool. Having sat in the same car I can confirm that it would be annoying to live with. It's the right move to revert to a more conventional position. But I might park mine up with the wiper in the middle every now and then! ;)

Good - I thought it looked like it was trying too hard to be a race escapee. B-)

Now there is an idea, I may give that a try tonight on the Cup :)

Exactly t h i s - reminds me of this 80ies Tuning ideas (when I wake up in the morning at the Weekend because our neighbor was sawing a hole in the Roof of his opel (vauxhall) to install a plastic sunroof......)

Do we have any indication of what variant of the 430 will be offered in the US and what the price will actually be?  Also when it will be available in the US?

Well things are forging ahead at some pace up at Hethel. It looks like mine will be here sooner than I was expecting. Could be a lot sooner, will know more in the next few weeks! :o

I think once again, as per the Sport 410, the modest power increase will be a distraction. The prospect of a lighter 410 with uprated brakes, Ohlins, wider tyres and a full aero kit is mouthwatering already. If it feels usefully quicker in a straight line I'll take that as the cherry on top.

As a minor detail it looks like they are coming through with the strips either side of the carbon front access panel in body colour now. Wasn't sure at first, quite liked it black there to match the A pillars but think it looks quite good now. The press 'Sport' version still had black either side of the access panel. Be interesting to see how Mark's car is finished.

Beautiful colour that. Can I ask the specific shade/name of it please? That’s the colour I want if and when the Roadster is announced. :wub:
