Lovely. If someone is looking for a modified Evora, that’s the one to get. All of the right mods in all the right places. Best of luck with the sale. 

That's my car sold and gone as of yesterday morning. Went to proper enthusiast who plans to regularly track the car.

Pick up the new motor tomorrow :)

You complete and utter t......          tease...!


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

He’s a lucky guy. Your (old) car must be a serious weapon on track. 

Does the new owner know about TLF?

It sure was, Nitrons set, fresh Cup 2s and it was fantastic in the corners. 

I didn't actually ask him if he was on the forum. He seen the advert on Autotrader. He owns a McLaren 570S aswell and had an Evora NA in the past.

I think that was the chap who came and looked at my Elise. He had a green 400 and was racing an Elise S1. Sold his 'lift' business. Nice bloke.

The meeting was too brief to recall, I’m afraid. But I don’t think so.

Sounds like one of our customers - the 400 is a Hethel edition.  He won't have bought SAJs car.

Ok. These posts have drifted far enough from the thread subject. I’ll split them into their own topic.

Compared to the prices of elise's and S1/s2 exiges I still think the early evora are bargains. That's a nice looking car even though it's got some miles.

seller came back to re my interest on what maintenance was required on his 118k evora..  

hes had 2 first one 90k miles (LE) , and this one 118k miles , both obviously cared for with servicing at the intervals but  said they had  been incredibly reliable. Only  ever needing  to replace the same  one  part across both cars, that wasnt consumables ( tyres / brakes, oils plugs) which was a wishbone as you cannot  just swap out a  ball joint. (which was what needed replacing )

vast majority of miles were motorway 

thats seriously good in my book  and who ever buys this is going to get a bargain..

Hi everyone 

I am a recent joiner of this forum as I am trying to purchase my very first lotus

i had already posted in the Eovra Wanted and received some fab replies 

however my question is on the current Eovra trend of pricing has it generally remained very static that cars ie 09/10 plate are not losing value so hence given the proportional mileage and age the cars are retailing for very much the same year on year?

i know this will be subjective but broadly speaking as I am prepared to wait for a car to fit my budget will my wait be in vain if prices actually creep upwards ?

I bought my Evora in Sept last year and paid £1,500 more than the PO who had owned it for 2 years...

To OP, yes, that’s about the sum of it.

My first Evora I bought at 2 years old with 24k on it. It was sold by the dealer nearly 4 years later with 44k on it for £1500 less than I paid for it. 

BTW I also looked at Bibs car which was also for sale at the time (5years ago) and it was the same price then too.


A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.
