Thanks @ricvx

Yes, I’m picking the car up on Sunday mid-morning so will hopefully get a chance to catch-up with you both👍

Massive congratulations to you again Jimmy. It was great to meet you and great to see this car going to a well deserved home. You'll be turning heads everywhere with that thing!

Congrats on the purchase, it's a gorgeous car! 😍 I am slightly biased owning a burnt orange Evora NA with SR wrap so yours is effectively a better modern updated version of mine, some of the short fallings corrected and all the good bits remain but turned up a couple of notches.  I'm glad someone took it off the market as I was starting to look into selling one of my kidneys to finance buying this lovely machine!  😉😄.   Wishing you many happy traffic free miles of motoring!

A super car in the hands of a super owner! After out chat Jimmy I'm looking at planning an Irish road trip for next year. Anyone interested?

Oh yes please, I was in Galway last year and the roads on outskirts looked amazing with great views.  I was also in the south many years ago and same there too, lovely scenery and windy roads.

Some stunning roads in NI, great place for a road trip, no better guide than Jimmy in a GT430!

I've driven a lot of the NI roads in some great cars when I was in Ecurie 25 supercar club - we had a base up there so went many times.

Agreed, some great roads.

Congrats on the GT430 Jimmy, from another owner.

Very happy to act as a route suggester and badly behaved translator & chaperone. 😉 As you probably know there is a big motorsport following and petrolhead community in N. Ireland. Any significant 'posse of Loti' would definitely get lots of positive interest. I'd suggest that with our extreme damp weather levels (like Scotland 😎) the 'high summer' months between June & August would be the best time to run the trip. There are lots of great roads, especially the North Coast including Donegal, good places to stay in/visit and its not too crowded.

Please tell me that unlike here in Scotland, the dreaded midge is NOT an inhabitant of your lovely Isle?

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!

Not a problem here and not anywhere near the same levels, or the ferocity as you get in the Scottish Isles in summer. I've seen grown men running into the sea fully clothed to escape their mass formation attacks!

Are you sure that wasn't the Queen Midge they weren't running from?

Right, I'll take this talk of an Irish Road Trip to a new thread so we can continue the focus on the loveliness that is the GT430!

Thanks @mik. I'm sorry to say I won't be surprised when we get the usual doubters harping on how Lotus always fiddles it's numbers etc lol.  I do love the Motorsport Green colour and it would tempt me out of a red, especially when you see the sun hitting it... :)

We feel the suspension is much better over the crappy roads than our previous Evora S indeed the suspension on the daily (VRS) driver is much firmer than 430 road setting 

totally agree on 410 comments 

Darryl & Sue

Proud to drive and own since new a true British supercar the Evora GT430
