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

It is Sizona's old car

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!

Looks lovely Jimmy, are you getting much use in it? I'm just through 8k miles now in my 410 Sport....

A fair bit Andy just over 3k Miles now, but had a small oil leak; (sump seal eventually sorted out under warranty when lockdown ended). I’ve spent more time bombing around in my Megane, including a track day at Knockhill in your neck of the woods the other weekend. Great fun, tricky wee track!

The Megane is a cracking car. If I'd known you were in Scotlandshire I'd have popped on over, Knockhill is only 30-40minutes away.  It's a great wee track that can catch you out if you start dosing as I found out once when i was coming to the end of the home straight and forgot about the right turn at the end!  To this day I still have no idea how the Evora and I made that corner in 1 piece and the guy behind me was convinced we were a gonna! Think I started turning sharp right when still doing about 125mph!!!  Lol....  That woke me up!!!

There seems a steady flow of 430s on the market. I might be tempted to upgrade from my S1 Sport Racer. 
Anyone know the background to the car Hofmanns are auctioning?

@GazmLooks very like the car that Central had for sale a while ago:  https://centrallotus.com/pre-owned/lotus-evora-gt430-in-exclusive-empire-green-2018-104999/

Howard’s also had an Empire Green car for sale at around the same time, but It had silver rims & accents. 

Good luck if you intend to bid for it!

I'd say that it's definitely the same car: "First supplied by Central Lotus and its running in service also carried out by the same dealer in May 2018, the car was then used on some European tours before being placed in storage."

I believe this is the car from Central and the owner was from up in Aberdeen, he bought the car new from Central. It was for sale in the Auto Lounge and I saw it at a track day in March this year.  Looked OK but I noticed the sail panel had cracked and the discs / wheel bolts looked very rusty - probably because it had been stored for a while. Went well and sounded glorious on the track.

Lovely colour in the metal (or plastic!).

Those bloody sail panels!! They were under engineered on the S1, to keep the same material on the GT range makes my heart sink. 
I just hope the LED “sidelights” were sorted for the GT.

Have you spoken to B&C? This one seems keenly priced:

Congrats Simon! 430 looks even more menacing in metallic black. 😈
