I've been looking for an Evora for ages and I've just noticed this one. Does anyone know anything about it? Is it reasonably priced? Thanks, Dave

This car was last discussed/sold at the beginning of 2017 on this forum. Remember the discussion.

Could be a good buy for someone:

https://classifieds.the playground.org/ads/lotus-evora-60-plate/

£20k, 2+0, Blue on 92k with Sport (and apparently Tech). I doubt clutch has been done so factor that into the price.

I'm still on the lookout for an Evora, so if anyone is planning to sell, let me know. 2+2 with Sport+Tech. Ideally an 'S'.

that will be the forth evora n/a on an original clutch with over 90k i know about...

That's really very cheap indeed even if it needs a clutch. And the ad says price is negotiable, might be able to get it for 18k...

MOT expired 6 weeks ago. Is it just me finding this not a good first impression for a potential buyer?  or  this is common in the Evora world?

It’s not uncommon for a dealer car that has sat ‘in stock’ for some time. Why would the dealer waste 6 weeks worth of MOT if there wasn’t any interest in the car?

Whats the MOT history look like? Any particular issues which keep on coming up over the years? If not, I wouldn’t worry about it. If you showed serious interest in the car, the dealer would have to MOT it before a test drive anyway.

This car was mentioned on another thread recently, and I believe @Relic222 was in touch with JCT about it.  It's my old N/A - I had it serviced & MOT'd in June 2017 but made the mistake of test driving a 400 whilst it was in, which resulted in a part/ex deal at the end of the month.

Happy to answer any questions about it by PM.

Yep, I contacted them about it as @nigelh said, based on the info he provided the car hasn't really been out much since he p/x'd it - mileage hasn't gone up much since the last service in July 2017. He refused to budge much on the price but you might have better luck than me. When I asked how long they'd had it he claimed they'd only had it for 7 weeks, which is obviously not true. Even so, the price is fairly good, the main reason I passed on it is because I found a laser blue one which is what I wanted.

Also, props to @nigelh, he was extremely helpful when I was enquiring about the car.

Lotus Evora Marmite edition!

https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/lotus/evora/lotus-evora-2-0-ips-sport-tech-andamp-premium---------------2010/8967600

I don't think I have seen one with red wheels before, great spec though for the price IMHO.

Agreed. £90 a corner to get the wheels SR Gloss Black. Would look great!

Hi, is anyone aware of this car? Yellow SR N/A. Ad is very sparse with no interior pics. Also 1 of 25 SR obviously not true - I guess 1 of 25 yellow N/A SR could be true? Price seems OK'ish, although of course private sale so some risk so probably needs to be a couple of K cheaper.

Looks like a cracker and I bet it is 1 of 25 NA SR's as @mik says.  What's not to like about it?  MOT'd last September at just under 17k miles, so MOT and tax due in next 4 weeks. I'd get the MOT done as part of the Service as part of the deal and maybe ask for 12 months tax. Worth the asking price then for sure in my opinion.

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!

That car hasn't been on ebay. It's @Greg | ValetPro's Evora and having been there when he bought it and inspected the car I can confirm it's in A1 condition, very mint.

Yes sorry, this is the one on ebay - very similar looking obviously and industrial estate based pictures 🙂

Mik, Still hunting. The more I read about it, the more it scares me. Was just reading horrible stories about gearbox on the american LotusTalk. You were lucky to get such a nice car.

@Glasgow, you can read horrible stories about anything to do with any car on the internet if you search for long enough.

Thing to remember is that if the story is 1 in 100 on a forum then in reality, if it’s not just some over opinionated, attention seeking individual, the problem is probably 1 in 10,000.

very true paul...  ive learnt that over the years, ...  if i believed everything i read on the internet, i should be dead by now, the bruise on my leg is ia rare bacteria eating me from inside out, and needs amputation immediately..  

oh and the reason i need 1.25 glasses is because i will be blind within 2 days.. 

the economy is about to crash, going out in the sun will kill me, drinking wine is good for .....oh wait no todayi  read its bad for me..  

its all a load of cobblers, year sure things break, .  its rare, you only read about the bad things , whats to say i thrash my car to its very death pinging off the readline, side stepping the clutch for launches then come on here and say my engines & gearbox has blown its crap....

im not saying thats whats happened, but you never get the full accurate picture...  

if your worried phone the dealers ask questions, these would give a better representation...

there great cars, ultra reliable cheap to maintain... i use hanger 111.. my family cars cost me more!
