Meet the Lotus Evora
Lotus debuted their latest car, the 2+2 Evora at the British Motor Show this week. The car has been the target of spy photographers for many months while under development as codename Eagle. Now we finally have pictures and stats on the new car.
The Evora will feature a 2+2 seating arrangement with very small back seats apparently not suitable for grown humans with all their limbs. But it is a 2+2 non the less. Power will be supplied by a Toyota V6 with 276HP/252TQ transferred through a 6 speed manual. In Lotus tradition, curb weight will be kept down but the car will feature many luxury options not available on their other current offerings. Even with the added weight, 0-60 times are expected to be below 5 seconds. No official performance specs have been released though.
