    Sadly because externally it looked like it was designed by school children. A shame for a car that's so highly regarded

    Yes, I've always struggled with the design too. Under Mike Kimberely's stewardship Lotus were going to release an Esprit is the same design style as the Evora. It was an unremarkable and bland design. Thank goodness they didn't.

    I actually like the car in that picture, although I guess that's a little too Lamborghini! It must be difficult to actually come up with something that looks different without being 'different for the sake of it'.

    I wasn't looking long, I bought the first car I saw and it seem to tick most of the boxes. It has full Ferrari main dealer service history, 43k on the clock, the previous owner had it for 8 years and serviced it at Dick Lovett and it was taken in p/x for another Ferrari. It's not going to win any concours awards but it was the right price for me, so I went for it.

    Below are some photos of it.

    I hope you think it's ok and I'm looking forward to learning more about these cars on here.

    Best regards,

    Mark.

    Thanks. That sounds interesting. What sort of upgrades are there please?

    All I know if my car is fitted with a Tubi exhaust and it's not quiet!

    Tubi is good that was my first upgrade. Now I have Challenge wheels and carbon engine bay. Oh and challenge front grills.

    The carbon engine bay looks good. I've got the Challenge rear grill fitted. Didn't know there were Challenge front grills though.

    I was expecting the stereo to sound rubbish as I've read most people upgrade them, but it doesn't sound to bad to my ears. Not that you can hear it well over the exhaust.
