Hey Guys

Hope you had a nice Sunday, and still have!
Now another "Car of the Week", this time the Lotus Evora. My model car is the S-version.

Developed as the Project called Eagle, the Evora is the first car of Lotus' plan to expand their line of Cars.

As the further models Elise, Exige and Europa the Evora is also based on the same Lotus Cars vehicle platform, but currently the only model with a 2+2 configuration. Thanks to the larger interior taller persons are able to fit comfortably inside. Thanks to Lotus CEO Mike Kimberely, who is 1.98m (6'5") tall.


The Evora plays the same league like the Porsche Cayman, yeah there's a look-alike for automotive unknown, and the cooled boot behind the engine is large enough to fit a set of golf clubs. It has an Accelaration from 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) within 4.9 seconds and a Top Speed of 261 km/h (162 mph). There's only a  6 speed manual transmission available and the EU-Standard fuel consumption is at about 8.69L/100km.

By giving the Project a name Lotus kept their tradition on (every model begins with an 'E') the name is derived from the words evolution, vogue, and aura.Exira was rejected as it was considered not good enough.

In 2009, the British car magazine Autocar named the Evora as Britain's Best Driver's Car. It's the same year the sales started (in summer). In the US they begun in January 2010.

In 2012 there will be a facelifted version launched, with a starting price of £51,030.
