Hi

I am looking to buy an Evora S, and I wondered if there are any dealers you can particularly recommend (for good or for bad)?

Also, if anyone is selling at a reasonable price I would be interested in a PM!

Hi Sumsion

Thanks for your post. I 'm thinking manual...

What did you think of Evora ownership generally?

It was my daily driver ( now have GT410 sport ) . Easy to get on with , ride and handling are superb . Confidence giving brakes and an engine that pulls from low revs ,if lazy , or using the paddle shift and changing up on the red lights ....... wow ! Try an IPS but be careful as you may get addicted . 26 mpg winter 28 mpg summer and 30 plus on runs .
If you want any more info give me a number and I can call

I thoroughly rate Lotus Silverstone, bought both my Evoras from them, and i was there on friday having my S serviced.

I think the Evora is a great car, superb handling and feel, quick enough, real sense of occasion everytime i get into it and mine is my daily driver.

What’s the Auto like vs the Manual?

I like both, I currently have an IPS Evora S and previously has a manual Evora n/a. The IPS gearchange in auto sport mode is quck but can feel very agressive, often dropping 2 cogs when may I wouldn't have, but iot does make it pretty quick. I prefer generally to use it in sport manual mode that way I have absolute control over the gear unless the revs drop too low for the selected gear.

Around town and in traffic jams the IPS is better than the manual IMO. My car is my daily so IPS suits, if it was purely a toy I would have manual, but then if it was purely a toy I would have an Exige.

Evora clutch is costly to replace and some early ones were fitted poorly; so they have (in my view unfounded) a reputation for clutch issues.

I would say, drive both, see which you prefer. Evora 400 IPS has an even quicker box, but the SR IPS is pretty quick at changing gears, but there is a slight delay between paddle pull and the high speed change. You still couldn't change a manual anything like as fast.
