For those of us not laden with vast reserves of cash, buying a brand new car can feel a bit reckless. “It’ll lose 20 per cent of its value as soon as you leave the showroom,” the doubters will say, and more often than not they’ll be right. But there’s also nothing quite like taking the keys to your own new machine, freshly finished in exactly the specification you requested. Especially when it’s a green Lotus Evora GT410 with gold wheels!
That’s the hero spec of the 416hp V6 sports car longstanding PHer leglessAlex has taken the plunge for, although he was helped along the way by a very attractive finance offering – one that would no doubt send many more down the same route. Better still for Alex, his car arrived in the showroom fully kitted out with working hand controls – essential for him because, well, refer to his forum name! It meant the fun could begin right away.
Not that the biggest concern for Alex was that the controls wouldn’t be up to the job, it was that the Evora itself wouldn’t meet his expectations. You see, he wasn’t able to test drive a GT410 before buying because no hand control cars were available, so relied entirely on reviews. Thankfully sites like PH exist… We’ll leave Alex to explain whether he’s happy with the outcome – here’s a clue: he’s already embarked on 400-mile-long trips to find some of the UK’s best roads. A proper PHer!
Well done Alex – we can’t wait to follow your progress with this lovely new machine. Click here to find his thread.
