I'd say that was cheap too.  Someone should look to snap that up.

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

Very sad day indeed, I’ve now had to face reality and finally succumb to a medical problem and very reluctantly put my beloved Evora up for sale .:(

 https://www.lotussilverstone.co.uk/vehicle-details/Lotus-Evora-S-U136/

All due to the DVLA‘s inflexible approach on cancelling driving licences on medical grounds. An approach which has not changed for many years and certainly has not kept up with advances in modern targeted therapy. Looking as though it could be over a year before I get any joy from them :angry:

Thanks Paul.

It’s going to be a long battle (12 months+) with a totally out of date and inflexible organisation, hence the decision to sell.

Looks like no more Ledenon days for me:(

Very sorry to hear that mate, DVLA sound like they've been shocking. :(

Thanks Bibs, DVLA are no more than an outdated computer system. They blame the medical profession but, as my consultant said to me “the DVLA, to learn anything, first of all need to learn to listen and adapt”

An organisation of intrenched burocrats :wallbash:

I’m actually in the market for an Evora right now and I’m slightly gutted it’s just out of reach re my budget. Yours is a beauty.

I saw it for sale looking at the ads this week. Really sorry to hear why you are selling Paul. Is there no way you can sorn it, stick it on charge and just put a cover over it? 12 months will fly by.

Every possibility has crossed my mind, including putting it in professional storage for a while so I don’t have to keep tearing at the heart strings by knowing that it’s just in the garage outside.

Unfortunately, there becomes a time when facing up to the realities of some of the challenges that life can suddenly drop on you is probably a less frustrating and practical way forward.

My Evora is also sadly heading up to Lotus Silverstone as well. Various reasons - not to do with the car, mean it will not get used for two years, so rather than leaving it holed up somewhere it is up for sale. It isn't advertised yet, but if a Black MY12 Evora S IPS tickles your fancy it will be at Lotus Silverstone from Saturday. More than happy to answer any questions about it if you want.

Thanks for details. I guess it’s a personal taist thing but I’m looking for bright Color Evora that shows up the black pack. There seems to be 5-6 black or dark Evoras out there at the mo - so it is a popular choice.

Good luck selling 👍

@mayesprit Leven have a beautiful Ardent Red SR for sale right now.  It's a cracking car and a wonderful colour..

I totally agree. Stunning and low mileage Sports Racer. It’s slightly over my budget. I’m at 41/42k max really. Sounds petty but I’ve set my budget.

@mayesprit make them an offer, not sure when any other SR with 3.5k miles will ever come back on the market. It's dead time nor for sports cars, must be a deal to be done lol....

Spoke today. Turned down £42.5 and I probably don’t blame them.

Hmmm. I wanted to buy their Ardent Red GT410 when they first got it in, but they said no.  Then it was £96k list, now they are trying to sell it for £84k. i just don't get "dealers" sometimes.  Oh well, at least you tried, good luck with the search.

This car is also shortly available for private sale up here.... 2015 car with 31k miles. Still just outside your budget at £45k. Not yet advertised properly.

Fantastic colour.... 😎

As mentioned I was about to advertise properly this week at around £45k but open to offers.  More details here:
