Daily Driver, super reliable.
The mileage will change as it is really a daily driver and I will continue to drive it to work everyday. It’s been a great car, and I’ll for sure miss it. The only reason Im selling it is because I want a newer R8. If you want a car that wont have problems, buy this one. Cars do much better when driven on a regular basis. If let to sit and only driven occasionally they’ll be more prone to problems.

I’m technically the second owner but I bought it from the first owner a year after he bought it, with only 300 miles on it, so I’m practically the first owner.
It had the engine bay wiring harness changed under warranty not long after I bought it, its been fine ever since. I’ve changed out one of the HID light ballasts and the driver side window regulator and after I added the exhaust system I changed out the O2 Sensors, thats been the only issues I’ve had in 5 years.
Has a few very small rock nicks on the front, have pictures, they’re tiny.
Has some rash on the wheels thats been painted black, hard to see it unless you’re very close to the wheel. Nothing out of the norm for a daily driven vehicle. Just had a brand new windshield put in, just because of pitting over 5 years. The roof, the front spoiler and the sill below the doors are wrapped in black protective vinyl which I had done shortly after buying it, and it came from the factory with a starshield clear bra which isn’t the greatest but it kept the front of the car protected. The paint under the bra and the wrap should be in excellent shape.
I use very very expensive Millers Nano Drive oil and the car burns almost zero oil. I bet I’ve maybe had to add oil between oil changes twice in 5 years.
I have all the service records, both keys and all the manuals that came with the car and a car cover, and sun screen for the windshield.
It really is an amazing car and a ton of fun. The exhaust system is phenomenal. If left in normal mode its as quiet as a stock Evora, but if you hit the sport button the exhaust valve opens and it sounds like a full blown race car. But it will pass smog in NV and CA with zero problems. I’ll link a youtube video too...

Figured I’d list the car here first so this community could have first dibs. No one seems interested so I’ll probably list it elsewhere starting tomorrow. Figured somebody might be looking for a private party sale. Here in Nevada we don't pay sale tax on private party purchases.
I’m trying to find a newer private party R8 V10 Plus for sale , but they’re unicorns in private hands. A hundred fifty for sale at dealerships , 5 private party.

Man, nice Evora.......well sorted and in the ballpark on asking price. GLWS

BTW, where did you source that sexy CF sailplane/halo?

Yeah trying to figure out a reasonable asking price is hard for these cars because 95% of the valuator tools out there don’t have values on them because so few are sold. Even the dealer only MMR system doesn’t have a value.

The sailplane is a Technocraft.

Adding a night time video

Adding a video of the car at night with the lights on, showing the folding mirrors, and demonstrating the exhaust valve in normal and sport modes at idle

Good luck, it looks like someone will get a terrific, well-cared-for, honest car for a very good price.

Sorry to see you leaving the Evora world -- your contributions on the forum here were always helpful. In particular your step-by-step on replacing the headlight ballast was a very good thread. Hopefully your car will get bought by another careful DIYer!

Well when Lotus said they were coming out with a new car (before they said it was going to be an EV) I figured Id wait to see what it was before deciding on my next. Then the Evija popped out and Im all out of Mills at the moment. So then I was waiting to see if the GT430 was going to make it stateside, but we got a watered down version. So I’ll try out a new R8 for awhile and then if Lotus comes out with something that looks like the Evija but has a petrol engine, I’ll be back. ?
