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 

So I only went and did it, I've put a deposit down on an 09 N/A Evora LE , it's already on the list being formed on the LE thread. Ive either slightly over paid or got less than I'd of liked for the E

Saw this on Autotrader earlier this evening and was planning to give them a buzz first thing tomorrow morning.

But then I spied that all was not as implied in the headline. :(

*Hint - you’ll find the answer in the engine bay pic!

I also spotted the twin tailpipe, but this is never a guarantee with aftermarket exhausts.

Ok - I’ll show my ignorance what’s wrong? 🤔 (I acknowledge the standard exhaust is a single pipe and this has a twin - but a lot of exhaust you get for them are twin)?

Look under the engine cover and you will see there is no supercharger attached to the engine so it is an NA not an S.  The exhaust and diffuser are the giveaways but granted both could be changed aftermarket.

So, either the car was an S that was based in manchester (and a thieving scumbag has fiendishly broken into it and stolen the supercharger to sell in at Trafford Market, or, the selling dealer does not know the difference between and NA and a S which is quite possible given the rarity of these cars if they are not a specialist.

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

How many Ss have had the NA diffuser retrofitted to them?

No idea but are you saying it cannot be done?

I’m saying that it hasn’t been done. However, there is at least one NA with an S diffuser fitted.

An NA diffuser = an NA. 

Ok so to carry on this pedantic train as i am having a real shit day in work anyway so feel like sharing the love!

It could be done (so I am correct to say that) but to your knowledge it has not been done (so, to you knowledge  you are correct!).

Super. All good. Everyone happy....

Still having a shit day in work but feel a tad better for that pedantry :devil:

I need beer....

Bargain for a 2013 SR "S":

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201808219711091

Edit - but was last serviced nearly 2 years ago?

 

I was going to have a look at that one, but I wasn't sure about the servicing gap.

It has been up for sale for a while and that must be why.

So apart from it being an NA Auto, it's an accurate advert for a Manual S.......😂

It's also not a MY2012 car, it's a late registered car. I know that they have not claimed otherwise, but worth mention.

BTW, I know of one official Lotus dealer that PXed an N/A for S money based on the log book (which was wrong). When I pointed out to them that they were advertising an NA as an S they corrected it and reduced the price, but did comment that the cock up had removed any chance of them making a profit on the car.

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Wow in that case, this is a seriously over-priced car, I'd say.

A typo somewhere since it states E400 & 345bhp so more likely to be an S. 

Price wise, advertised price seems to be as per the market although doesn’t always mean that it gets achieved

I wonder if any independent has ever advertised an Evora correctly? By the way my brother bought an awesome Maserati Quattroporte GTS from Auto100 last year. They were great to deal with and the car has been faultless (just back from a 3500 mile Euro tour with his family on board). The proprietor isn't the biggest Lotus fanboy though...

I've also bought from Auto100 - the car I bought had some issues, but it was priced well and they were easy enough to deal with.

They do tend to sell their cars quite a bit below market value, but £49k for a 400 would be outrageously good value!  That price puts it slap bang between 2 similarly aged IPS 'S' cars on Pistonheads though, so I'm guessing a typo on this occasion!?
