The Evora, according to it's measurements, and to people that saw it live, is that it's a huge car. Definetely not small like the Elise/Exige. Is that true?

From pics it still gives the impression of a normal Elise/Exige dinky-toy - I'm hoping for something around the Esprit/NSX type size for it to be a real contender on the market.

Dunno...

That's what it's supposed to be IRL.

Well you can see from the blueprint it's massively bigger than the Elise - gimme some time and I'll go on my PC and draft up some comparo profile blueprints/shots with other cars...

edit: cooking dinner first - gimme an hour or two :p

edit 2: forget that - lamb I bought was off :mad: grrrr.  Have to go out and get something :irked:

It's longer and taller (though it doesn't look any wider ) than an Exige or Elise  but compared to most other cars it isn't huge.  It looks smaller than a 911 for example.  The actual stats are probably googlable but it isn't a big car.

According to stats it's as wide or almost as wide as a Falcon.

And for those who haven't been in an Elise/Exige (me no Exige) - the door sills are massively wide, probably 20-25cm at a guess, so two medium sized blokes are touching shoulders.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.  :D

Hey you's have seen and laughed at the footage :D

Put it this way - it's about on par with airline seating, and not the pointy end.
