I know there are more than one 430GT in Australia I need to ask Richard.

As for the difference, here in Australia the 430 was 50% more than a 400, due to our Luxury car tax!

Very big day for me today. This is now in the garage. Really special car. Looks very low and compact. Didn't take up the garage space I was expecting. It has massive presence with those win

Mine has been delivered yesterday   

Guilty m'lud! Motorsport Green. Carbon race seats, sound deadening, air con, no stereo, black diamond cut wheels with black wingstays. Impossible to believe but it should be sitting in

Can’t be many more than one then!

@KG that bumper makes all the difference. Wow, what a sight that must be over there. Really love that colour, considered it myself having owned a nightfall blue Elise. I don’t think we have a GT430 in that colour over here. Not 100% sold on the red wing mirrors as they look solid red in the photo, the red cat scratches are metallic would prob go body colour there but you’ve done an incredible job no two ways about it. They said it couldn’t be done, but yeah I like them apples! 👍👍👍

Congrats mate, a lot of work done. Not a fan of the pin-striping on the bumper but each to their own. 

Graeme - pretty sure there are a couple here. Spotted this one at SSC a while ago:

Here is a collection of the super rare Evoras GT430 Sport as far as I could find and trace them

Great work !!!(but I think the two light blue cars from the UK are the same car, Lotus light blue seems to be a color that looks very different relating on the lighting conditions :-)) , the Belgian car seems to be for sale on Autoscout, just to mention...

Agreed, very true! Time flies too, had mine 2 years already. Definitely hasn’t been boring!

So, quick diffuser poll.

Original plastic?

Later aluminium?

I have the early plastic style which looks arguably better integrated but later ally diffuser looks more aggressive, slightly more effective and possibly better for cooling. No known claims for downforce either way so purely an aesthetic choice. Interested to know your thoughts.

Jonny, the alloy diffuser is preferable IMHO both for looks & durability. (Although carbon would have been ideal to match/blend in with the rear end). Presumably this was ruled out by JMG on cost grounds. 😞

Yes think I slightly prefer the more sticky out ally one and have asked for a price while the car is in for its 2nd service. It will have to be a modest cost to tempt me but we will see. I was actually offered a carbon one by someone I know but like JMG also ruled that out on cost grounds! 😁

Prefer the original plastic diffuser a lot. It is much better integrated and serves the stealthy darkness of the rear.

The later aluminum diffuser makes the rear restless with fragile Elise plate works.

That light blue 430 looks superb. Really fresh and clean lines. Very nice.

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!

Yet I’m assuming this car is same colour and has been for sale for over a year now https://www.dicklovett.co.uk/specialist/used-cars/2016-lotus-evora-35-v6-400-ips-2-door-2-2 .  Love the interior
