This was around the same price Evoras were selling for back in 2014. Unofficially, that makes it the oldest new car sold in the US. While other dealers were heavily discounting the Evora to ship stock, the Connecticut-based dealer Secor Lotus felt it was “hurting the brand” and refused to slash the price. “It was a protest to some schemes of the pricing people had,” said the dealers general manager, Steve Plona. “I think it’s an undervalued brand.”
To preserve the sports car’s condition, Plona explained how he plugged in a trickle charger, overfilled the tires to avoid rot, and changed all the fluids except for the synthetic oil.
