This sounds like a serious attempt at a sale, Simon. End of an era.

Cheers chaps - yep if someone comes up with the right offer it will def be going - not using it at all at the mo and the old body is getting less compliant with age. 😄 scratched the mac itch and next car will def be a Lotus again 👍

Oh wow. Good to hear Simon. McLaren has a big bath outside the technology centre, is that where you will be taking the 570? :angel:

Good luck with the sale Simon.

I was same place last year as just wasn't using mine.

Now in same place with 250 Cup and find the Evora a lot easier to live with.

I'm constantly attracted to the S1 Exige.

However, realistically, I keep reading the 'lack of use' comments, and wonder if I'd be the same. I love my V6, but I'm struggling to use that much.

I wouldn't really want to sell the V6, so an S1 would probably be additional.

These days, I just don't go anywhere!
