nice, do you own that?

@rs200evo Yes. 26,000 miles from new, which is very sad but lucky for me as I only bought it recently. Handbook signed by bonnie Prince Charles (I hope his Dad never drove it).  It was auctioned in 1995 by The Sun, with proceeds to The Prince's Trust. 

It is a bit too clean for me, I like to use my cars. I will probably end up selling it but no rush, I am very happy to own it. I forgot how much I loved driving M100, so I am looking for a higher mileage example that I can rag.

For all those thinking about a 400, there’s a lovely grey one for sale at Lotus Silverstone😉. It’s being sold for a good cause too - to fund my Elan +2 purchase...! The 400 was just too reliable with no opportunities to get my spanner’s out! 😂

Is that the 2017 or the 2015? I went to Silverstone a week or so ago to look at what they had.

Mine is the 2015 one. A car personally responsible for the purchase by others of 4 other Evoras in my village (or adjacent village) alone!

That was the first Evora I went to look at I think. It’s the nicest one I have seen so far, but I’m very boring when it comes to interiors and all that red is too much for me! 
 

Good luck with the sale!

Evening all, long time reader, first time poster etc. After about 8 years I'm finally ready to take the step from admirer to owner - looking for an NA, up to 60k and £27k. Who's selling?

Market is good for buying at the moment. You should get a nice car for that.

Hi all, 

I'm looking to purchase a  N/A Evora at some point, I have a BMW i8 at the moment, which I love, but I'm concerned about the reliability of the power train in the future, so would love one of these as a daily to replace the i8, and to enjoy the sound! We have a 1 year old girl, so hopefully can get a child seat in the back. I've noticed this one in the classifieds 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2010-Lotus-Evora-3-5-VVT-i-V6-2-2-Coupe-2dr-Coupe-Petrol-Manual-/402552396529?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292

 

Would this milage put people off? I notice its had a new clutch recently.

Would not bother me either to be honest.  Interesting that you want the "noise" and your concerned re the drive train of the BMW. All that lovely noise goes when we go full BEV.

I would not be too bothered by the mileage of the Evora. The engines are bullet proof. Clutch is the potential weak spot but you can get it done for £2k.  So not stupid if you know it in advance.  These are rock solid cars. The airbag cover needs fixing, not a huge job but time consuming so expensive if the dealer does it.

Looks like a cracking car. I had an Ardent Red 2010 NA and still love that car even though I now have a 410 Sport.  Good luck.

 

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

Thanks both :) Great to know. The i8 is one of the best cars I've owned, but there are times I miss a good engine sound, its going well now, but it does seem worryingly complex!

 

Back in 2018 I had an Ardent Red Evora S, which I always regretted selling. I shouldn't be putting too many miles on it (we have an Astra for main duties at the moment) I may drop them an email tomorrow.

I have Ardent red Evora so maybe biased ? Looked at this car don’t know the seller but I did like they made a comprehensive attempt at the advert 65 pictures , decent service history etc 

so although high mileage it looks like a car that’s being well maintained ? Only way to make sure is to test and inspect the car , they giving 3 month warranty which could be negotiated to 6 months as part of deal ? Added piece of mind ? 
it didn’t have sport button but I don’t on mine and as I am not big speed freak it suits me ?

Thank you :)

It does seem nicely maintained, and service history looks good. I had a look at a car history checker, it showed a previous advert for the car, the private seller looked very encouraging, ex lotus management car apparently before him, and he's  has done 45k motorway miles in it, which explains the milage, 

 

I did wonder about the sport button, but in a previous advert it seems to be listed with the sport pack, and has the sport button in one of the photos.

Hi all, 

Sorry, me again! 

Does anyone know this car? Don't think I've ever seen Persian Blue. I really like the interior too

Lovely looking car and Persian blue and Oyster interior is really classy in the flesh. Needs silver wheels rather than those black ones though in my humble opinion!

looking at those 65 pictures I couldn’t spot the sports button ? You can ask the seller or if your considering a test drive see it for yourself ?

The red one has cross-drilled front brake disks as per Sport pack, so they’re similar in that regard. Strangely the passenger side rear seat looks very worn. That must be a world first for an Evora! From the photos, the blue one looks in nicer condition and has significantly lower mileage, so would be my choice. View and test drive them both. Good luck.

AU10BHN researched before... I thought I recognised the number.
