So much so, I put down a deposit on it and i'll have delivery in Aug

Excellent!  That's the can-do attitude we like to see around here.   :thumbsup:

Congrats on the purchase…
Is it closer to an esprit replacement than the elise/europa line…

I didn't have time on Sat, so I had my private viewing today. The car is a MILLION times better in real life than in pics. I LOVE IT! So much so, I put down a deposit on it and i'll have delivery in Aug. It will be the third one to come to Aust out of the 45 allocated here.

Awesome!  Although I thought you'd baulk at it and wait for the higher-spec one next year.

Sure I can find a reason to be around Mexico with my camera in Aug.... :scratchchin:

As is it does 0-100 in 4.9sec. The engine is the one that's in the TRD's. And guess who supplies the superchargers for the TRDs? Super squalo! Setting that up to the Evora should give it a 0-100kph time of close to 4sec for WAY less than what Lotus will charge in the future for the option.

Sounds like a good project once you're bored with it (1 weekend...) :p

Make a meal of it - do the first sub-4 sec Evora project, get it done before Lotus release the next spec version and I'll make a feature of it... :D   I'm fairly sure they've seen here from some of the search hits I've had (during the "faceless people" campaign there were some very specific search terms) likely only to come from Lotus insiders...

At least you have the plates for it :cool:

Yeah, I can see myself going over the top with it. The engine is supposed to be tank like so I can throw anything I want at it.

I won't put those plates on. I think putting the car's name on a plate is a wank. I only got them to sell them to Lotus ;) I'll see if I can get $10k off the car's list price :p

Now that I slept on it, why am I having MASSIVE second doubts??

Because you've probably seen the options list and prices that were released for Europe overnight!
