  1. Elise -> Evora

    I've owned an Elise then owned a N/A evora and now the Evora 400. The Elise was fun to drive and always put a smile on your face. Whilst the one I had was a 1.8 it felt super quick but also felt nerve racking when a lorry went by you on the motorway. I see the evora as a more grown up lotus. Fun to drive mega fast and sticks to the road like glue, yes costs are a bit more but for what is up there with lots of high end sports cars for the cost of a £30k BMW it's undoubtably the best money you wil ever spend. Not only that the evora is holding its money well so another tick for justifying it to the Mrs lol. My answer is not everyone can afford the 400, 410 or the gt430 if we could that would be the one to go for. But at 30k budget don't wait buy one that stands out and that every time you get out of you look bavk at and say I bloody love it.
  2. New lotus

    Not sure mate moving house at the mo so unlikely. Drove the R8 - v10 spyder. Car lookedand sounded great. Felt a bit too normal though like a daily road car. The car was 7 years old for the same price as a 1 year old evora with warranty. Tax is a lot more on r8 so is servicing, repairs, insurance etc. I got 28mpg on a run the other day and the performance is incredible. Oh and the sound, it's like Ferrari league imo. Again that's only my view.
  3. New lotus

    Sorry spell check, it meant to say sound not smoke lol. No didn't own either one. Test drive them but the evora won hands down for me
  4. New lotus

    Finally took the plunge after driving an aston Martin and r8 finally ended up with my lovely white evora 400 and absolutely love it. The sound the drive is purely amazing (my neighbours are a bit annoyed how loud it is but the smoke makes up for that)
  5. Evora 400

    Drove the 400 a definate improvement on the none aspirated but not sure it's worth the additional price tag, still got to drive the r8. Sat in one felt good but my thought is. Is it just an Audi? The aston Martin I think is out until I'm 50 plus lol.
  6. Evora 400

    Well 2 differing responses, I owned the single aspirated evora and loved it, part of my issue is buying what I had before as I usually buy something different (I know it's not the same car in many ways but you know what I mean). The alternative is aston Martin vantage convertible (drove it and was only noisy after 4000 revs and was a bit too normal for me lol). Or the Audi R8 sypder but not driven one yet nor have I driven the new evora 400. I know it sound so like I am fussy but want to be certain as it is a lot of dosh
  7. Evora 400

    Well, not been here for a while I did the worst thing ever and sold my evora for a maserati. No way looking at buying a Lotus 400. Just missed it too much, what are people's thoughts? Should I stop questioning myself about buying it or just go for it? It's that it a vantage convertible?
