They look tempting until you realise that they're all IPS shift and high mileage.  Plus, Evoras still loose value very rapidly.  You can now pick up an ex-Lotus, low miileage 2013 Evora S Sports Racer for almost 20 grand off list price.  Youch!!!

 

PS I'd also agree with smithpaulg's comment.  If you have a rare Lotus, hang onto it :-)).

Hi Eric .

Yes it seems the Evoras prices are all over the place .

Where the limited Orange 111R is a hybrid of Exige sport which I love to bits only 3 made which mine is no 1 .

Going by club members are be daft selling .

Confused Eddie ?.

All cars loose lots of money in the first year. The 3-4 year residual prices of the evora are still pretty strong.

 

Quite a few 2011 cars are coming onto the market as people will have bought them on 3 year finance deals and lots of people who buy new don't want older cars out of warranty.

 

Being ips isn't a problem, I preferred it over the manual. (I drive mine in sport manual all the time, so essentially a paddle shift manual.)

I had 3 Elise's now with my 111R it's got a lot off upgrads when it was built at the factory and the Exige won't have all the extras that mine got apart from more power with the S spec .
With the Evora bigger car like the handling ,V6 Engine and it's styling but with mine if it was a type limited run type ?..lotus launched in its models range to buy it would be worth more money as these 3 special builds we're never openly advertised on the open market with all it's extra £5500 extras added as well.
It's more not for sale but for the right price never say never .
I'm not going to give her away .

I would be interested as to what lotus have to say could you both have the same build plaque ,? Keep us posted

All sorted is plaque does say 1 off 1 and the same spec as the 3 Orange 111R as mine is 1 off 3 .

Stratstones would price these at £26000 on the forecourt with the spec result SIMON TOLD ME WITH THE WHITE ONE .

Good to see the white and blue just need to find the 2 supercharged versions in the white and blue strips .

Lotus Archive

department giving you a little bit of background on our cars:

'The Elise UK Special was a sales & marketing release of which only 5 cars were

made, 3 normally aspirated and 2 supercharged (these were in white).' He did

qualify this by saying there were a number of similar specials of which I’ve indeed

seen a few but none quite as nice or well specced!

The upgrades consisted of :

Paint - Chrome orange with Starlight black tri-stripes

Black rear diffuser panel and 7-twin spoke alloy wheels on Yokohama A048

LTS semi-slick tyres

Trim upgrade based on the Exige Cup Racer featuring full Carbon-style black

leather with orange stitching and Probax Cup Harness seats

Air conditioning and hardtop

Track suspension with Eibach springs and Bilstein one-way adjustable dampers

- with a single adjuster for bump and rebound - and 3 height adjustments. Plus

adjustable front anti-roll bar and double shear track control brace to help cope

with the expected kerb abuse during hard track day driving. ( These last items

were a package of upgrades available together as the 'Super Sports Pack' for

the Elise and Exige for an extra cost
