Just thought I’d pop in with a quick update now my evora has finally been delivered! It was the GT410sport in military grey previously mentioned on here.   I sold my exige cup to buy it as I

Got it home but hard to drive it back in the dark and heavy rain    just have to wait for the rain to stop so I can find out what’s it like to drive 

Must be something in the air about Grey GT410 Sports... just picked her up yesterday 😀

Still seems to be a lot of love for the S1 NA out there with a few new owners recently, including an international web celebrity.

Question is though are the NA's still going to be driven or increasingly are they going to become low mileage garage queen's to protect resale values?

My NA is likely to stay with me for some time so can see it going from its current 25k mikes to 60k miles over the next 4-5 years. It is not a DD so only used for pure driving enjoyment. At that point it will be an 11/12 year old car with 60k miles. Still an average of only 5k miles a year.

I still do not find her wanting in the speed department on the open road so despite looking very hard at the man maths just cannot justify the cost to change and run for the S and 400, as good as those cars undoubtedly are. The 410 does pull at my heart though. For me it is a superb focused package at a good price.

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!

Only 6 months in but still absolutely adore my Evora N/A also and can't see this changing anytime soon.

Its my only car and to be honest its absolutely wonderful and easily practical enough for my day to day duties.

No need to hide behind the sofa Andy, real men who drive Evora's have a +0 and are called Andy. Unlike those other Evora +poo drivers that have to ask their wife's permission to get a "sports car" and can only have one if the kids can get in the back too!

I mean, who wants a biohazard in their sports car anyway, and as for having two of them in there.....

Lotus realised that real drivers just want a plus two, that's why the 410 and GT430 have no back seats either.

There's no option for any Lotus here apart from a 400 plus 2.   I don't care  (and never did) about the rear seats which I considered vestigial.  I appreciate the added space though. I guess if I still had kids, I'd find a way to fit them back there if pressed.   To me it's a good daily  driver but nothing more.

Still, I see no problem using an Evora in the daily role.  I've  taken the rear upholstery out (so easy to do ) so there's a bit more room for storage when traveling or shopping.  It's all the car I need for routine day to day. But family car???  Haha and Bravo!

This picture doesn't make me feel any better :(

Not having a Lotus in the garage is agony! I'm not sure how I'm going to cope over the next three months while I wait for my 250 Cup.

Im back in the UK and eager to shower the Evora auto market - and boom, all seem to have fallen off the market.  Only one that is close-ish seems to be a strange champagne colour with black wheels - its reg LJ16 AXX if anyone knows about it.  The 400 badge at the back has lost its red, DVLA has it reg'd as Grey - should these little things flag concerns?

I would guess @Jamie-BellandColvill may of supplied it originally as very  similar number plate to this car Bell & Colvill have up for sale, might be worth contacting him

It looks really nice and I notice there's an Esprit in the background of one of the pictures. Anybody on here?

Hi Rob,

That is my Evora and sneaky Esprit in the background. I am happy to field questions about it or you are welcome to come and have a look although it looks like there is about 2 hours of travel between us.

Thanks for tagging me Bibs.

cheers

Hi Bibs,

Should my advert have triggered a new topic in the "Lotusforsale.com - Latest Ads" chat in the "Evora - For Sale/Wanted" forum?

It says it is "Auto feed of ads placed on lotusforsale.com" so not sure if something is broken or I might be having a senior moment. :-)

cheers

-Chris
