The steering wheel is turned, so you can't see the paddles on this angle.
Lol ok I see it. Thanks. If they are available at some point - I'd love to see more of this.

guys,

you can own this "look". all we need is to show Carbon Creations that there is demand. If I can reference the thread I started then we can create a group buy thread and viola, we have a carbon fiber kit that bolts right up.

No offense but I've purchased CC's RSX fenders and their CRX spoiler, both were absolute doggy doo. The thought of putting Carbon Creations products on a car as nice as the Evora is criminal.

I'll have to take you up on that. It will be after winter is over but I'll find an excuse to drive a few hours and meet up with you

I'll take the body kit but just plain old fiberglass will do. The price might still be sky high if its carbon. I'm going for looks. Losing about 20 total pounds will mean absolutely nothing to me.

I'll agree. Better I lose the 20 pounds than my car.
Might be more difficult, butless expensive.

How much is the front bumper and rear wing of the GTE or Mansory kit?

Michadams, one more question:

Are the Mansory Evora Bespoke parts line up perfectly with the body or do we have to have them reworked/sanded/smoothed?

It would be nice if all one needed to do is hand over the parts to the paint shop without any worry of irregular edges,etc.


(I know Audi/BMW/MB parts line up great but since those are ABS and not fiberglass, hence the question. thanks!)

Yep - I need that bumper.

It has grown on me and I have changed my previous opinion of it - I want it more than the smiley face I currently have (and love)

The ONLY one Evora GTE supplied by Lotus Cars/Lotus Racing that I know "in person". This car is for the Gerard Lopez' collection in Luxembourg. But not road registrable. There is no CoC with the car.

the only difference between mansory is the shapes of side cracks-?- in the front bumper i guess.. GTE one comes with foglights on them? they might work to cool the brakes together with a pillars i guess.. but the problem is mansory one is avaliable somehow but GTE is impossible to get sadly..
