In need of some fuel, I pulled into my local 7-Eleven the other day with my 14 year old daughter. As usual, people took notice as they heard me rolling in with the typical dropped jaw look. After pulling up to the pump & shutting the car off people started pouring out of the store to take a look at my Evora. This happens a lot, but I've just never posted about it before. The only thing different this time is that there was a brand new Ferrari 458 spyder parked one stall over that no one ever noticed. Even when the owner of the 458 came out later, he couldn't stop looking either as he walked to his car. He started to get a disappointed look on his face after realizing no one was paying his car any attention. I was preoccupied with pumping gas half the time, but my daughter sitting in the car the whole time gets a kick out of the attention & said that no one looked at the 458 the whole time we were there. Once finished I do the Lotus shuffle to get into the car, start the engine (in Sport mode of course) and pull out while keeping the revs up for everyone to hear how weak that 458 will sound in comparison once he drives away. I'm not really a rub it in your face kind of guy, but it just felt really good to be an Evora owner with an awesome exhaust a little more than usual at that time!
