Today I drove an auto Sport Racer Evora S. Really nice one.

I loved the car, but I found the pedals too close together, I press the accelerator and brake at the same time, I had to take my shoes off.

Did they improve this on the 400?

I found this. If you look at the brake pedal it has a pointed but that sticks out towards the accelerator. It is crazy close to the accelerator.
10 mins with a file and hey presto! No sticky out bit! Looks perfectly OEM still and makes a world of difference.

the offset is a bugger too. if it's not a daily you have to reacquaint each time before any enthusiastic driving.

Had no problem at all in a 410 if that helps? Mind you I am modest in almost all dimensions biggrin

Oh nice, good to know there is some kind of solution!

Never really bothered me.

In terms of the pedals, I just wear narrow shoes, again no problem

Also, the car I drove is currently not advertised online. It will be soon but will go quick.

2013, 13.5k miles auto Sport Racer Evora S. £49k.



Let me know if you're interested and can point you in their direction.

It's stunning, it's like a Nardo Grey, black interior with red stitching, reverse cam, heated seats. 2+2.

I may be due a parrot but do you really think that will 'go quick' at £49k!!?

Fair enough. I said it would go quick just because of the state of the market and the unique specification. I also know that some people prefer this S1 styling.

I personally felt it was too expensive as well and the price was close to a 400, which meant I'd rather just pay a bit more and get a 400. That's the reason I decided not to go for it.

It's worth what someone will pay for it. As stated, the market is heated right now, supply is limited etc. Who knows!

Looks a nice car. Autos are usually a little cheaper though so that might count against it a little.

Another 50 bhp with just an exhaust?

Not a believable ad IMO. Wrong power, no pics yet etc

Well the new Emira, further details of which have been released today, hardly looks a game changer and is a clearly a stop gap car so I can't see it having much of an effect on Evora prices.

...does anyone think the same or otherwise?

No roadster indeed, quite a surprise I thought

I like it but still don't get the rear end - I know it deliberately apes the halo model Evija but, to me, it doesn't gel with the overall design.
