OMFG - What have I gone and done that for.........


Recommended Posts

Jon, there are 2-3 Evora haters (always want to convince you that the clutch will fail after 3k miles and the gearbox will explode soon thereafter😄😄). The rest is just friendly banter👍& there a few who have moved on to Evora or  Exige

Yes, had my VX for almost 14 years, & still wish I had it at times, but know that moving to the Evora was the right thing to do for me. Perhaps I should have kept the VX  as well 🙄 & I understand your point about the willy wavers

And look how far away from the kerb it is - me, paranoid. Of course not...

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

@C8RKH I have a cunning plan. When my numbers come up tonight I will be buying the Stratton Esprit - and swapping the interior with mine! Hey presto, mint Esprit with my gorgeous magnolia interior. Then donate my old one, now with a mint black interior, to some deserving cause.....someone who likes Audis maybe?

Better get it advertised on the playground then. They love Audis and Porsches on thete. Can't stop talking about them..

Congratulations @C8RKH... that's a lovely looking car. Can't remember which thread from years ago I said it in.. but the 410 is my perfect spec Evora.

After the S1 SR S I felt is all Lotus needed to do was make it about 400bhp and add lots of Carbon and Alcantara to do justice.

The Evora is now a perfect car in my eyes, not overly complicated like so many cars are today but not too simple either by the use of exotic materials and a properly honed in drivers set up.

Dont wash it too much... you'll wash off all that newness!! :lol:

I am. Thank you.

Given the reactions I have to say I am amazed this particular car stayed unsold for sooooo long.

no disrespect to your old red, but in the same picture the flame/fire red?  looks really very special... 

the  silver wheel yellow caliper with this colour is a great combo..

Dream on Andy, and you do realise the IOM only repealed those laws in 1992? :harhar:

You know you can get Bridgestone All Terrain chunky monkey tyres on 20" rims don't you?  Ideal for the school run....  

 

Oh bugger, hang on, your "kids" are older than mine I think.... Are you a GILF yet?
