You do realise sadly @Cdm2018 that most Evora owners hide them in the heated garage and only take them out in the sunshine every now and then.

Not mine! I daily mine 😎😂😂

The blue one says it’s located in Chesterfield as I go back and fro very regular as my partner has house there in my time never seen this car about the area ? 

You have to understand that to make an Evora Lotus needs to collect a certain amount of rocking hore shit. This broken down by a magical process to the sub atomic level  this Light matter is then brewed in to the magical Evora matter and welded into form by master elvish craftspeople who feed on turnips and mustard.

Hence the reason they are so rare and you don't see many about. I mean, when was the last time you saw a rocking horse, never mind its shit!

Also, many metro owners bought +2's to satisfy their wives demand that even a sports car had to be practical. These are the ones Barry referred to and the reason they are not seen is said wives usually say no (even though in this instance they don't even have a headache) when they are asked by their husbands if they can take their Evora out of their heated garage for a spin

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

There's a choice of two early NAs around £28k now. Looks like the market has moved back down...

Sample size of two...

up to you really, feel free to wait until they are 25 if you like, they are north of 35 in Australia and each advertised is higher than the last...

market is.  I quite like it, but a few people I have spoken to say that the stripped-out, carbon bucket seat-ness is not very appealing.  Is that a widely held view?

I love the carbon seats in my 410 they add to the whole theatre of the driving experience. In terms of comfort I got on fine with them so long as I properly adjusted the seat. However, since fitting the seat bracket that tilts the seat back it is comfier. Only Downside is that it is harder to put things on the rear bench as the seat back obstructs entry. So I use the passenger side.

I have the S1 Recaros and the carbon GT seats. The Recaros are the most comfortable for everyday use. When I go away to play boy racer I put the carbon seats in. They look lovely and are light enough to just about float away but even with the angle brackets are firm. Not uncomfortable at all. just firm in that you feel every bump in the road.

A second low mileage Evora S sports racer has just come on the market for the best part of £50K! Is the Evora market really heading North now or are they just trying it on?

Thats a nice looking car.   I think it's a bit expensive.   My 2015 Evora S SR  has only done 18k miles.  Wonder what that is worth now..

It may be that in 10 years time the early Evora model prior to the 400 are the most sought after.  A bit like the Giugiaro Esprit is more desirable to the later models and original Elise etc....Only time will tell.

Mine is a 2012 S on 31K miles and sits at £50k. Unfortunately it is not for sale :P

Definitely trying it on. Until it sells!

(Is this Matt Becker’s old company car?)

That Sports Racer does seem pricey!.. I bought my old 2014 Daytona Blue S SR when it was a year old with 9k miles and that was only £47k. Incredible that it could be worth a similar amount 6 years later!

I can't really see either car selling at those prices, but you never know I guess. The crazy thing is if they do then that's potentially on a par with the supposed £50k entry level price for an Emira!

IIRC, I was looking at this car in early 2018. It was being sold by Oakmere the Lotus Dealer in Cheshire (if the same car). They did not seem that interested in doing a deal with me so Aimee at Lotus Silverstone up-sold me to the brand new Fire Red 410 Sport I have now. At the time Silverstone also had a yellow 410 Sport for sale, hence the up-sale as Silverstone really wanted to sell me a car lol...

 

Edit: Found the advert from back then - 4000 miles on the clock

https://www.oakmeremotorgroup.co.uk/used/all/lotus-evora-410-mx17bdv

Then turned up at Hoffmans with around 5,900 miles on clock

Damn that’s a really nice looking car. I saw a  Yellow 410 Sport at Silverstone that was already sold when I went last week, otherwise I would have had it. Really looks good in yellow!

Hi, yes that's the Yellow 410 that I'm buying, hoping to be able to pick it up next week.

Congratulations! It’s a beauty!
