I've been looking around for something different and just happened to see an Evora at COTA a few months back (Cars & Coffee) and the lines of the car just really impressed me. Fast forward a bit and there was a Chrome Orange at the Audi dealer here in San Antonio, took it for a spin and I was hooked!!! Unfortunately I missed out on that one and went on a search and ended up buying one advertised in Autotrader at the McLaren dealer in Denver. Really love this car... I sold my Supercharged E92 M3 last week after 8 years of ownership, the car was a beast and I had a great run with it but the Evora is a totally different car that offers so much... very happy with my decision!
