Looks likes an Essex Blue S? Looks great like the reg. Only 3 made. I've still got one of 'em. We need to get some pics of them together? What colour are your alloys? My consumption figures even driven carefully are about 22.0 MPG. On track best I've had is 9.8 MPG. I've done over 10k now since new. No problems apart from a sticking boot lid but WD 40 sorted it. Rear tyres needed replacing at 9.8K. They are Pirelli Corsas asymmetrical type. Look ok on outside but were scrubbed inboard! Be careful as mine were only just legal! Best price was from Oakmere. Lotus wanted £450 a corner! I'm off to Donnington for an evening session on 15th May providing its not going to pxss down again. If you fancy going in yours?
Hi Andy it's not as nice as yours , needs a dam good detailing . The colour is Persian blue which yeh looks very close to the Essex blue . Just like you I think sold my 111R after 9 years and now got the Evora . Loving it and yeh it loves fuel
No more sunburn . Looks nice jase, looking forward to seeing it fully airborne rally style in my rear view mirror on some narrow Welsh lane real soon
I feel a change coming
Thee's lucky lad ...
I have Pirelli Corsas on my Triumph Street Triple R - at 2,800 miles they are already squaring off and well before 3k they will be shagged - hey ho, that's bikes for you
Elise S1 in yellow - loved from new for 18 years
Ok yes it has a few more toys and a bit more padding on the seat,s . As for the driving experiance i was abit worried about missing the steering feel and poise the Elise !!!R had . Well the Evora is as good if not betterr despite it weighing a lot more . Okay to get the best out of the engine switch to Sport mode and just rev the motor . Redline is 7000 RPM and seems to have loads of torque . You don,t realise how fasy you are traveling until ya look down . Easy 70 mph in second and 110 in third . ( that was on track sir ) I thought the Elise used to get some looks but im becomming vain driving the Evora ha ha . It,s had the 3rd Cay removed and a custom rear stainless box . Just need to change the induction either TRD or K&N. Oh yeh it wont fit down the drive into the garage so it has to live outside no problems so far and a custom specialised cover ordered for her . Only other job needed is a paint job for the front it has a bit of motorway gravel rash and thinking of doing the Black pack so black roof , mirrors , Splitter and swage line below doors . ....
I knew it would not fit down drive or if I tried it I,d get stuck . Hey ho I pondered this for over 6 months looking at Evora,s for sale every day It,s a itch I had to scratch and loving it . Ha Ha . I test drove a launch edition at CN,s in black and the gearshift was awful so walked away . Been in touch with the previous owner of mine who told me everything about the car and thousands spent looking after her and last bill was £3000 , then he saw the 400 Evora and traded it in the same week mad!
