Information about wheels:
Evora 18/19” Forged Alloys. Great condition, no kerb damage. Colour compliments the car. These wheels are 1kg per wheel lighter than the standard Evora cast wheels, thus reducing unsprung weight. Personally I wanted to avoid standard alloys on looks alone and the larger wheels being less practical and uncomfortable ride, with thinner tyres.
Overall lovely condition, lotus enthusiast owned; regularly detailed by myself (snow foam, hand dried, polished and waxed)
This intended to be a keeper, but change in circumstances; and so has limited my usage.
Garaged, dry weather use only and run on super unleaded in my ownership.
The NA is a good mix of performance and economy. Unlike the supercharger this is in the lower tax band, cheaper to run, maintain and insurance (I pay sub £300); I’ve had 37mpg on a 150 mile journey.
Lovely condition, overall good condition inside and out, some age related marks as to be expected but all very minor and needed to be viewed to be appreciated.
Sensibly priced and compared to some no air bag lift, minimal bolster wear on seats, wheels unmarked, classic exterior and interior colour (although appreciate paprika, oyster interior, lotus unique colours are a personal preference)
