erm.......what was standard.......the blue tips only came on the sports exhaust........but what were they made of?

The trims were titanium I believe. the exhaust itself, not so.

Yes, the offical name was the Lotus Motorsport titanium tipped exhaust i believe. Hence everyone is right - it is a titanium tipped exhaust, it is not a full titanium exhaust. i have one. it looks super, it sounds super. It sounds immense with the 2bular headers I have connected to it!

Yes well spotted, my car has sneaked onto the classifieds. Good point on the exhaust, it does read as if it's full Titanium (lotus doesn't "add lightness" that much! :))

Feel free to send me a PM if anyone on the forum is interested to view the car.

Cheers,

Craig

I'll be after an Evora after the summer, but if I was after one now, it'd be yours :)

Fancy a Red +0?

Wonder why this one is hanging around when others that are more expensive are selling. Some with similar mileage (but less). Does it have a strange history?

Looks great to me - but not worth a 50%+ premium on top of my NA in my view.

Personally, I don't think that the grey paint looks good with the silver wheels. It really needs the 'black pack' and black wheels, IMHO. Maybe others share the same opinion.

Each to their own.  That car will find a buyer I'm sure.

I quite like it and agree with Paul that it's a lot of car for the money; if I had the cash to splash I'd be interested, but sadly I haven't as baby No.1 is on the way (and I'm still loving my Lauch Edition, which the missus is allowing me to keep :thumbsup: ). I'd get the cruise control added though and would be willing to compromise on it having red brake callipers (I like black callipers and silver wheels).

I've always liked the Evora without the black pack too.

Changing the subject I see that ex-press car AU09AOG is for sale at Snows. I recall it was advertised privately a few weeks back around the £29-30k mark. I saw this car at the 2015 Lotus Festival and spoke to the then owner. Looks tidy and proves that early S1 prices are very firm.

Hi there, thinking of getting an Evora and looking at what is around at present, the S1 sits within my budget.  Any thoughts on whether I should go for a launch car as it will have all packs or is it best to look for the cleanest car etc?

Sports pack is desirable, rest is meh! As you can add the items like cruise etc easily. I have a 2010 NA that just had sports pack when I bought it. Added cruise, sat nav, reversing camera etc as I went.

NA does better with the close ratio box for spirited driving, std or long box is better for GT style journeys, but with IPS you are OK in NA or S.

We've said it before and will say it again. By on condition ( the cars can handle high mileages ) and ensure full service history. A well looked after car is obvious and should provide a lot of fun for a long time. Do your research on here and ask questions about ny specific cars you are lookibg at. Most are known by someone on here.

Happy hunting....

Thanks, have been reading back through the threads to get an feel.  As you say, the Evora seems a perfect capable car as an all rounder

This one stuck out, anyone know the history? https://www.oakmeremotorgroup.co.uk/cars/prestige/lotus-evora-35-v6-22-launch-edition-v1rbm

As Andy mentioned, the close ratio box and long box, you should try both.

Most of the LE came with the long box, great for motorway cruising but can get frustrating as 3rd (onwards) is so much longer on the long box. So you can be buzzing 1st and 2nd, then dropping much lower down the revs in 3rd.

The CR box became standard with the S and then also with the Sports Racer NA cars.

I'll buy that Silver Ginetta G 60, just behind AU09 AOG.

Anyone know of a Left Hand Drive G60 For Sale ??
