Hi All. First post on TLF and wanted to share a very positive week that I had during a road trip to Ireland last week in my Launch Edition Evora. Firstly, on the way to the port we stopped o

I parked the Evora up on Sunday for a leg stretch in a German Autobahn Service station for 15 mins. A chap arrived 2 mins after me in his Porsche (And a very nice one Identical to picture) and parked

Hi Folks. I'm new to the forum (any forum, come to that!). Have had a S2 Esprit for about 5 years and own other brand classics, but recently bought my Evora GT410 Sport - the only one in NZ I'm told.

When I was in the Cotswolds recently, I met a chap who has one (he had bought the Volvo though) and another older chap who was a TVR man and was very interested to have a chat about it. It does get a great deal of attention everywhere you go, I have to say.

The only negatives I find are you tend to get aggressive types trying to race you everywhere, which can be tiresome. I tend to pull over and let them go by, I must be getting old!

Interesting comment from the Alpine owner, I often wondered what the post purchase owner ship is like, Let’s hope for Alpine’s sake it’s not common, I’m much more interested in owners experience than the selling magazine Jurno hype.

Yesterday my wife bought some people staying in our external studio Abnb, into the house and into the garage, which I’m not happy about, these people might be OK but it’s the friends they tell that I’m not fussed about. As the Evora is not the only toy in the garage.

However this person also asked about  my 400 “is that a lambo?” Explaining what it is, is like many others said I’ve never heard of it, nice car was the next comment.

Apparently he bought it with 1500 miles on it and has since found out that the previous owner had also returned it because of lots of problems.So it looks like dealer has just sold it on without rectifying any of the issues! he’s replacing it with a Yaris !

Hi @Crooky23 - I'm not usually a fan of "dark" cars but I do have to say yours looks lovely!  Congratulations. Welcome. And I look forward to your updates on the car and some superb pictures of your car in the beautiful wilds of NZ!

Interestingly I am tentatively thinking that my next car purchase may well be a hand made in NZ 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!

A GR Yaris, I bet!

 

Yes it is-he also said he’d had a lotus before, I asked him which one and he said ‘the one with the scoop on the roof’🤣

Of topic a bit but those Yaris look tasty, wouldn't mind a go in one of those see if it can have the same fun spirit as the Abarth.

Hi C8RKH. Thanks for the comment. Posting another pic and will send some another time that are more scenic! I didn't know we made anything here! We usually export things that we grow... but I'm guessing its a Fraser? If you need help with shipping, let me know - its what I do. Cheers

now I had only just worked that I can replace the background picture from my home office to default pictures to eventually I put my Evora as my default wallpaper 

I just have this directly behind me. It’s a little more subtle :)
