Peoples’ reaction to your Evora

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. I have to say its an absolute hoot to drive and be in. So urgent, responsive and goes like stink! I was at a pedestrian crossing in a small town and a lady was holding the hands of her two very young daughters (twins I guess) while crossing. I'm going to say they were maybe 2 years old? Anyway they couldn't stop staring and yelling to Mum about this black 'thing' that was on the road. Mum was less pleased, hurrying them along and getting them to pay attention to where they were going, but they just would not stop - even as I drove away they were twisting to see. I know its a great shape, but I hadnt realised the impact for young and old, men and women and of all types. And the basic shape is now 10 years old! Kudos to the original design team, and those running the updates!

Welcome to TLF. :welcome:

Car looks great.

As Bibs said, you should duck over to the Introductions area and say hi in there as well. :)

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.

Whilst we were in the queue to get on the Lotus stand a very knowledgeable chap behind us referred to the Evija as the Evita 😁

Wasn't Evita a movie? :getmecoat:

Yes, I think it was about a woman crying about an Esprit being left in Argentina after being driven (successfully I must add!) offroad. 🙂

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

It's a form of crispy cardboard some women and even some men (how strange, I know) put cream cheese on isn't it instead of eating meat!

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!

Forgot to mention, he spent a good 3 or 4 minutes trying to open the "boot" at the front!   Lol. Bless him. Had to tell him in the end to look through the front grills to see the radiators that cooled the engine. He then went and inspected every air vent / scoop and told me which one were to cool the engine. Great kid btw. No doubt he'll have a blog and youtube channel in a couple of years, maybe when he is 10!  :)

The various mothers still looked at me like I was an old paedo!  :(

Was at a BTCC meeting in 2016 when the 400 was about a month old. Camping next to the M3 crowd, who insisted in calling it the Lotus Ebola. 
 

@Yan I’ve had the same with my daughter, although she wants me to dress as the Stig for her prom.

Blessed with the competence to be a slave to the incapable.

But I also have to admit it made my bloody day as well seeing such a young lad so happy.

Well done chap - that’s exactly what it’s all about. The Esprit is on prom duty again next week 👍

:D All my in-laws are Japanese and so are a lot of my friends. I have that problem all the time but it's accidental.

In the midst of my little road trip with my young daughter in Highlands had a load of reactions which I will list in another thread later

However one which struck me was the many nods from the motorcycle fraternity ! Couldn’t wave back quick enough so felt a little ignorant but they wizzed by

What I do find a little worrying in my experience is quite a lot of drivers coming in the opposite direction tend to drift towards the Evora. I presume that this is because they are staring and your hands tend to take you where you are looking.

It happens quite a bit though and it's quite disconcerting.

Strange reaction 

there’s a chap I cant tell how old as wearing helmet but he rides a scooter past the house twice a day at least probably going to and from work.

every time he goes past the house he paps his horn without fail strange 🤔😳

Just been looking at some of my road trip footage and reminded me of an reaction

at a petrol station an elderly chap who was fuelling his luxury type of camper van came up to me in the petrol station as I was paying. 
said to me lovely car shame you can’t carry a bike ? I said I could , he laughed he then said like to swap and similes 

I said I think I will stick to my car to enjoy the glorious roads ahead in Glencoe area 😀

as I left the shop a chap standing outside as you could only have a couple of people in shop any one time, said your daughter lucky to have her ride in dad’s car and bet it’s great to drive in these roads , as he was talking he was taking a picture on phone. 

got back in the car my daughter says dad there’s loads of people looking at the car what did that old man say to you as was ages looking at the car before going into the shop! I told her as we went on our way
