Lol - you saw the rather inebriated post then ;) - but you are not far off - they are epic cars and what Lotus should now be producing :) Prob is the better half is after a more luxury barge - havn't ruled an Evora out yet tho' :)

Evora's are great cars :>)

Plenty of Lotus DNA there... they can dance about really well on the real world twisty bits. :>)

Seriously my Exige is now genuinely up for sale as its replacement is set for March 2019 :) - sadly it will not be a Lotus :(

The advert will be listed on PH in the coming weeks - in many ways I hope it doesn't sell :)

Absolutely Rob looking at a 570s - they are absolutely epic cars ( had one on loan recently) and what i reckon the Lotus Exige should have become

Biggest prob is the 'better' half prefers AM - currently working on this ;)

Oh no Simon, not again :( but if you do have to sell the S1, McLaren is the way to go, can you not convince Tina to go for the 600LT :D Totally agree with you that Lotus should be producing cars that McLaren are :roll:

Good man. Evora is epic. I don't know if you could still order a GT430 Sport, but a GT410 would do especially as a well known dealer could map it beyond 430 reliably :wink: You would also save a fortune on depreciation and service costs compared to a McLaren. A bit of a no brainer imho 8-)
