I have only tech pack but car had a different exhaust and then I recently added new cross drilled brakes all round , would like to add CAI at some point ? 

I am happy with my Evora ! And that what matters in the end 

Nice my NA was a base car (even no back seats) with the sports pack only so even came with the single din hifi.  The installation of a double din sat nav unit with DAB and a reversing camera (that never gave me an issue or let me down unlike it seems loads of standard ones on here) was under £500 and I got the cruise added as a freebie by the dealer when I bought it - would have been £250.  To be honest, at that point there was nothing from any of the other packs that I missed. Craved for. Felt ashamed for not having.  My car was the muts!

I did upgrade the interior to venom red (Lotus sold off a number of the brand new still on the original pallet OEM recaro's in the Sports Premium trim and colours - the seats cost me £1200 which was less than the price of one new standard Recaro CS!  I sold my dull boring black/charcoal second hand ones to a guy who wanted them for his Fiesta ST for £1200!  hahaha - what a deal eh?)

Nothing wrong with your car @Cdm2018, it looks the mutts, and as you say if you are happy then that is all that matters bud.

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!

***** In 1993 when I was 50 years old I bought my 1st sports car, a 1990 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE with 15.000 mls on the odo...... I immediately did fell in love with this Lotus and the love remain

Did anyone else notice that the matte black one in Scotland (previously called Dexter) disappeared off Autotrader this weekend?  You reckon some idiot was mad enough to travel an approx 500mi tri

The Evora has ceased production so the pool of available cars is going to get no bigger. Those who have driven the car know how brilliant and beautiful it is. It has effectively achieved classic / cult status. I can only see prices going up depending on condition. The type 131 won't be released until 2022, I can only see demand for existing cars increasing. If you are thinking of buying an Evora I would suggest getting on board while you can.

Will the price take a dip when the 131 is released? Maybe, but not by much as I think the status has already been achieved. There will probably be a ceiling to the price as people will then start to look at other exotic cars but this car will surely have put that cachet to the name Lotus.

If the 131 doesnt have a +2 version, then this would be the last ICE +2 lotus so makes it pretty rare and difficult to replace.

As you said not that much out there so  that should keep price up, on the other end depreciation still happens for the 4xx so not sure where it lands but I am struggling to see how a 400 would bottom below 40k and that is already not far so doesn’t seem much risk.

for the GT410, that should be a bit higher but it is not much more car than a 400 so I am not sure what the current stock will go for.

probably a case of if you get one as you want it, you should just buy it as it may not come back.

I missed twice on my ideal Esprit and now I have clearly missed the boat.

Has production stopped? I thought they were going to do a final edition for the Evora?

They decided not to it. It’s a pity, I would have been tempted to trade my SR for a GT420 with a special badge.

Half arsed or not - that’s a keen price. Be interesting to see if those talking about looking actually take a look.

Keen price but agree advert seems very half hearted ? If any reasonable person spending money on advert would max the car potential ?

car is located in Scotland so would limit possible buyers?

Just to be clear, my question was about the GT 410, not the 410 sport, which has been out much longer.

Ruud,

The best way that you can find out the actual number is to buy the Certificate of Provenance for your car. You can either go direct to Lotus or, if you upgrade to Gold membership on here, @Bibscan help you out.

When the last Evora rolls of the production line what is the final number of cars made ? All variants 

just be interested to know my car is one of ?????

I suppose how many website can tell me if I add all variants but just wondered if there was an official count from Lotus ?

Wraps and wheels worry me.

MOT history doesn't look too bad though. 

Seems cheap....

I think that is the one that was painted in Matt black not a wrap. It went to scotland early in it’s life. Used to be called Dexter as the reg ended DEX. 

nice enough if you like Matt black. Can’t say I was ever a fan of it. 

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.
