Realised I didn't post a piccy, so here you go, nightfall with silver wheels. Not the same wheel type but close enough.

If you look up @Ericski he has some pictures of his (that looks nightfall) with silver wheels.

@Ericski what a wonderful combination. A stunning, beautiful car you have there. No, I am not jealous at all. Honest. :)

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!

I'm lucky the Parkway guys took some great pics and left them online, then also couldn't believe my luck when that actual car came up a few months after I started searching & settled on that spec.

To be fair, I think with the black pack on nightfall blue, you're best off with either black or silver (or I'd be tempted to see what a satin bronze looked like...).

I believe your car is the one Will Blackham sold last year, to someone who really needed an IPS & resold it fairly quickly?  The year before that, alongside mine I was trying to hunt that particular one down after seeing an old Lotus Silverstone ad.  Enjoy! 👌

Yep, it is the one Will Blackham sold, I saw it then and thought it was a bit beyond what I wanted to pay.  Hence was surprised when it was advertised again, for the same price, a few months later by a private seller.  Of course, I thought "he's having a laugh, at that price", then after watching the market creep up for a few more weeks, I changed my mind. 

In Jan 2017, I shook hands on an immculate avg mileage Black S, @ around £34k.  The seller pulled out just before I was due to collect it; when he offered me it again a couple of months later I decided against it.  Always looked back and thought I could have sold it for what I paid, although I saved 3.5yrs of running costs.  I decided not to hesitate too long this time.

Yes, Lotus Silverstone took some great pics and left them online, stumbled across the ad a couple of weeks ago and relaised it was my car. 

@21gg Beleive it, or not, I didn't find it too hard finding pics of yours, stunning car.

I’ve an ex-pupil (car mad) who Passed a fortnight ago I promised a ride to if he passed who only lives a miles from you. He couldn’t believe there was a 430 residing so close to him and he hadn’t seen it.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

So when are you thinking of that, as if I knew when and where you might happen to stop in a car park somewhere..........Does he know there is a Lotus retailer in Exeter?

Yep, 2015 NA SR in Nightfall Blue with (quite rare) Venon Red interior.  Wheels professionally refinished in Hi-Power Silver, and the dodgy black rear badges replaced with (much more tasteful!) "chrome" versions... mmm mmm...

Took the SR on a 4 day tour with a supercar club. Everybody was impressed with the real world performance on the British B roads…

My heart wants to keep it when the Emira arrives but my head disagrees 😳
