Would love to hear your thoughts on differences between NA and -400. I know the latter is quicker, but talk of it being louder, stiffer and 'angrier' put me off a bit.

Done that to a 410 Sport. You sit real low in the carbon seats. The interior is very well put together, yet familiar.

The noise. Oh my god the noise. Just incredible.

Much, much faster. Bit harder but still sublime on all but they worst roads. Steering sublime. Long distance comfort Good.

Get's. Lots of positive responses from everyone.

Do try one. I love an S1 car, but the 4xx cars are definitely put together better.

I'd happily have an S1 Evora again, but 4xx has more drama.

interior special but no better than my S1

This. The S1 interior is great. But many S1 owners harp on about it being the bees knees.

The 4xx interior is great.

Both have quirks. Build quality imvho is better on 4xx. But after what. 6/7 years of production you'd expect that. Right?

However, the Recaro's, again, imvho are light years better than the Sparco's. They wear better. I've seen pictures of some leather Sparco's in a 400 than are looser and saggier than the face of a Dogue de Bordeaux!

Ideally, you need both.

An S1 targa (why the hell they never delivered this just rips me up) and a 410 Sport, and yes Justin, you are right, you need both. 😁

These always seem to be black - I think it is the basic interior and cheaper leather.

The Recaros are also prone to bolster wear unless you are careful.

That said, yes I prefer the Recaros.

You are correct. It is normally the black leather that looks loose.

There was a similar IPS one for sale for ages in 2019 at £55k. Could be the same car.

I’m almost positive this one was a manual, although there were a lot of Evoras there today.

That’s interesting. It could be the same car, because that reg doesn’t bring up anything on the MoT history!

After it was sold by Howard's, it appeared a few weeks later at Dick Lovett Swindon. The guy who bought it from Howards did not keep it for more than a few hundred miles.

If I recall correctly, that light blue one is a special edition Lotus did, one of 10. Might be perfect for what you are looking for actually @Wake

Thanks for the link! It’s a beautiful design and looks gorgeous in the flesh. I wonder how many of the 10 were spec’d in manual 🤔

Howards had the following on the ad for the car in July 2019.

Our stunning and rare Evora 400 IPS Blue and Orange Edition has just been reduced by £2000 in our Summer Sale. With only 3 of these cars known in the UK and having just covered 11800 miles, this car shows great value. Now priced at £55995, call us for more details. #howardslotus #evora #evora400 #lotus #lotuscars #specialedition #sportscar #gt #skyblue #forthedrivers

Stunning cars and for me the best lively 400 money can buy.

An early (2015) 400? These were high 40s a few months ago. Can’t see it going privately for £53k, if I’m honest. 

Why? adverts for high 40s sports races are common at the moment in that context makes this 400 a bargain in my humble opinion.

There’s a SR on PHs for £38k which has sold and Will Blackham has a really gorgeous looking red SR for £41k which has been there for a little while.
 

I think that white 400 is perhaps a bit optimistic at £53k for a private sale, given that Silverstone have had very similar age/mileage 400s on for £52k in recent times. But you never know, with seemingly so few of them about at the moment someone may be willing to pay a premium if it’s in their ideal spec.

Very, very few buyers are willing to spend £50k+ privately. 

And, how many of those high 40s SRs have actually sold at those prices?
