A simple question if I may......does the Evora utilizes a start button like the Elige?

That was so 2000's. Now even a Hyundai has one. I'm waiting for retina recognition!

The start button is a gimmick. The ignition even has a start position that goes unused. I'm stumped as to why they would put a gimmick on a car stripped of gimmicks.

I'd still love to have a start button. Just cool.

On track, I've spun and failed to keep the motor going (a lot better at that now). A start button is much faster than finding the key, turning it off, and back on again. True for any stall.

Did I say cool?

+1. Unless you've got keyless entry, why would you want to have to carry out two movements to start the car?

Agree, I have it on our 7 pass family car and it is extremely annoying. I really don't get the notion of pretending that a 5,000+lb SUV is somehow related to racing and needs a start/stop button.

On my old M3 - Keyless sounded promising, but in practice wasn't as seamless as one would think. I liked to unlock the car when I was 20 steps away to give the nav/bluetooth more time to boot, so I already had the key in my hand, when I was near the door. Keyless was sort of moot at that point.

As a man (boy?) I love buttons and flashing lights. Maybe a start button that flashes until you start?

Yep, Ferrari = insert key and turn, then push Engine Start.

Never understood why that was, why not one or the other? :D My BMW is keyless and all you gotta do is keyless unlock, get in, and push start. That makes more sense... :D

A Ferrari, like most supercars, are silly when you think about it. But don't question them. Just enjoy them. Because they aren't meant for racing and they are terrible daily drivers.. So, really--they are for pure sh*ts and giggles. Sticking the key and and pressing the button is all just part of that nonsense.

Why does a super car like Pagani need all that crazy-ass chrome-porn? If you start thinking about what's "necessary" you've already disqualified yourself from ever owning one.

Out of respect I choose to ignore the remark about Pagani.

One look at the Huayra and a Ferrari just loses all its thrill

What squidward said. Also, to me, either fully keyless or just put the key in and turn. Had an M3 purely keyless, have key in pocket, touch door get in and push start--all good. Have an audi with "semi-keyless" and makes no sense. Must push button on key to open door, put key in pocket and then push button. Must remember to give key to wife if you happen to be dropping off something or wife drives down the road with a functioning car and no key!!! At least with the evora, if you unlock it with the button and get in then you turn the key and go and don't have to do that weird 2nd step with the elise where unlock door, turn key, hit button on key and then hit button on dash--hmmm

no I agree, i love pagani, but yeah it's serious car porn.

I also love the Spyker C8 interior. it's just insanely over the top but it's classy at the same time.

There's a fairly local Spyker to me that brings it to cars and coffee events. Dark blue with camel interior. Very nice looking; inside and out. Too bad they never really took off.

I'm working on bringing some bling to my Elise, stay tuned, it'll be a mix between Pagani and Spyker ?
That is totally awesome

Love the mechanical almost watch-like look :bow:
