Very early cars came with chrome door handles. They didn't last long into the production run.

We can see why! :wacko:

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

That's interesting info @Bibs 👍. The certificate of provenance for my LE (75th production Evora) mentions colour coded door handles as a selected option as well as paint colour. I was led to believe that the forged 18"/19" wheels, wheel finish in silver or stealth grey and choice of interior colour were the other options available to customers when ordering a Launch Edition early on. Anyone out there know any different?

Distracted by something else in the pic.

Think it is the Excel exhibition hall not the car model?

Body coloured handles were a cost option in the early days but I think they became standard later on. No idea when the change happened.

Saw this LE Evora at Castle Combe Lotus day for sale. It was owned by a Club Lotus frien who sadly passed away a year or 2 ago.  Its a very nice car and priced very keenly to sell. It is being sold by Qmech Lotus specialists who have looked after the car and any enquiries should be directed to Andy Stanford on the number given.

Looks as if the blue S IPS has been sold by Hendy, it is no longer on their web site or AT.

@windymiller good spot! I missed the fact that the red one was a 2+0. Like you I thought all the Launch Edition cars were 2+2s. Either it's not a LE car or someone has converted it to  2+0 spec (can be done 2+2 to 2+0 I seem to recall, but not the other way around because the 2+0 doesn't have the prerequisite bits for things like rear seat belt anchor points etc.). Or it's a "Hethelism"!

I believe you are quite correct as the Launch press release states that all Launch Edition cars were fully specified to include the +2 option.

Probably not an LE car then, but a very early one and if anyone is interested then a phone call to QMech will have any queries sorted 👍

Could be a SOR. And car back with the owner. But I hope it was picked up by a new owner. That car was mint  😃

Still in Hendy, back on AT has its 4th interested buyer in the frame.  Seems to have had a lot of interest but no final sale.

My 2011 built NA had chrome handles was a 2011 late build as well , didn’t see any on later cars must have been when they stopped that option .

I assume it is a 2016 built car judging by the awful and tacky LOTUS font on the dash roll? 

6 year old car but only circa £12k less than original list price but few paid list when new.

They ain't making any more (perhaps) so it may find a buyer but it feels a tad toppy to me. The red trim is not popular in the market at the moment, the seats need a contrast of black to soften.

Looks as if this car was sold from NI and is now on AT - 2022 registered 400 .

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202204244970885   at £68500 - private sale.

I do think people are interested in these cars but honesty the ones staying on the market are all over priced and are putting buyers off, especially those S1s at Hendys.
