Yes. That's the standard one. Not very quick unfortunately.

Have you thought about an Elise or an Exige?

I am certain a non quick Lotus will be more than sufficient - I drive in Adelaide (Roadworks capital of southern hemisphere) where I drove through four 40k speed limit zones this morning.  Was looking at, Elise Exige but the bench in the Evora is very useful for kids and (thin) clients. 
Thanks for the tip, what do you drive?

I've had a couple of Elises, an Exige and now have an Evora S. The seat in the back is useful as you say, which is why I got.

Thanks for all the help people, put the order and deposit through just the other day.  Pending 2 mechanical inspections the car will be mine - or the bank's
Good to have you guys on my side, see you on the road perhaps at Barossa if you are going there.
