Another Evora Rave

No comments about the style or the occasional disagreements I have with this dude's observations but he does have a lot of followers (for an entitled twit) and he gets the essence of the thing.

I concur he's a twit, and I couldn't watch more than the first few minutes of his twittery.

Well I watched the whole thing. The guy gets it as well as any review I have seen.

It is a very nice review! I haven't seen many of his videos (because the ones I've seen in the past were hard to watch) but he seems to have "grown up" a bit in this one.


It's impossible not to love the Evora 400. Everyone I have let drive or even given a ride to absolutely loves it. So much character and charm.

Yes, he got the Evora part right; I just don't know how difficult servicing an Evora would be on Oahu.

I have gotten use to watching him since he owned a VF supercharged Huracan like mine and did a bunch of videos on it. And I really get how this car can actualy be more fun to drive than the 800+ HP Huracan

Current:
2018 Lotus Manual Evora 400
2015 Huracan VF800 Supercharged
2018 Audi SQ5

Past:
2012 R8 Manual V10 VF750 Supercharged
2009 R8 Manual V8 VF550 Supercharged
