Evora market watch, for discussion and to help those searching!

Due to my new work contract I'll probably rarely get any use out of mine now, so may sell it as I'll only be home one weekend a month (zero point bringing it to London!). I would be fairly disappointed to only take £58k back out of it though, especially since it's now a rare non-creaky seat model! :lol:

I should prepare yourself for that less the dealer margin already discussed a few pages back in this thread.  So maybe £53k?

Also have to consider mileage, condition and manual or IPS. I think the colour of the silversrone one, dirty pics in the advert and fact it's an IPS all result in it hanging around. Ordinarily I would think it should sell easily for 43k.

I test-drove that one a couple of weeks back. Lovely car, I would have made them an offer if it was in one of the brighter colours.

Oh I'd be hopeful for low prices too if I was in the market for one bud, no worries there!

What you always need to remember though, is one car going to the market for £58k doesn't instantly see every other car being slashed to £58k. Not to offend anyone here that has one, but for me I find the silver my least favourite colour the 400 has been made in, so I wouldn't have bitten on a cheaper one when I bought mine regardless.

It has now been confirmed in the other thread that the price IS £58+VAT, so just shy of £70k.

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!

My first proper drive of a 400 was in B&C's demonstrator.... sig silver with the red alcantara... vile colour combo if you ask me. But weirdly the grey and red leather is extremely nice.

Oh, that "McLaren look-alike" ad... another lazy ad. Here are some highlights:

TAXED = They might pay for it, but technically no car can be sold with tax anymore 

Leather Trimmed Seat with Technical Fabric Inserts = No it's not, full leather by the pictures

 Oval Exhaust Finisher = I know I'm OCD but that's a funny looking oval

19in/20in Alloy Wheels - 10 Spoke Silver = Darkest silver I've ever seen

Lightweight Rear Sport Diffuser = They make it sound like it's any option... it isn't

Height adjustable drivers seat = Err, no.

Body Coloured Bampers = Only in London do cars have Bampers

  Black Leather Gear Lever Gaiter and Handbrake with Black Stitching = White stiching

Leather Timmed Seering Weel with Rcing line Idicator = Racing line indicator? God that could go very wrong

Lotus Tuned Hydraulically Assisted Steering = If this was a Japanese car that would be a thing, only they'd call it L-THAS or something like that

 

Oh and don't get me started on the fact they got all their numbers wrong.

Personally, I wouldn't go near any dealer that would run that kind of advert with somebody else's barge pole.

If you look at the rest of their stock, they have an odd affinity for the word "Mega"

Yep, at £20k it's clearly a scam.

Yep, definitely looked like a scam to me; there was significant lack of detail in the advert and the selling price was too good to be true at £20k for a 23k miles motor with no mention of it being a repaired write-off. I reported it to Pistonheads on Friday night. Glad the ad has been removed.

Lover of everything Lotus Cars and proud owner of production Evora No.75 (2nd UK customer specced car by VIN). Originally from the Far East....of Anglia, I read black box data for a living so that could explain a lot!

Well Silverstone dealership appeared to being doing well with the 400,  having sold 3 of them last week  :). Words obviously getting out how great the cars are !

First Evora 400 under £60k? Admittedly it's the Snows demo 65 reg, so an early car which has had (imo) a hard life but interesting none the less.
