The new 2010 Lotus Evora has only been shown on a few occasions so far in the US and Canada but the first two months of production are already pre-sold. Starting November 13 two Evoras will embark on a 44 dealer Open House Tour in the US to give potential buyers a closer look.
The Lotus Evora will enter the sports car market as the only mid-engine 2+2 in production. Evora is designed for people who desire the exotic sports car characteristics of stunning design, exclusivity, dramatic proportions and performance. However, it offers real-world usability and efficiency as well.
Powered by a 3.5 liter V6 producing 276hp and 258 lb/ft of torque, the Evora employs a lightweight chassis to ensure all-around dynamic performance in keeping with the Lotus tradition. From its beginning over 60 years ago, Lotus’ consistent guiding principle has been to achieve ‘performance through lightweight’. The Evora provides 0–60mph in less than 5 seconds (4.9) and top speed over 160 mph (162) while also delivering 30+ miles per gallon on the highway.
Inside the Evora simplicity meets sophistication in an exquisite combination of detailing and hand-built craftsmanship. By using only the finest leather from renowned experts Muirhead, the interior is hand-trimmed and twin-stitched to create a beautifully tactile and visually striking environment. Genuine aluminum instrument and center console surfaces contain ergonomically positioned controls providing a purposeful drivers’ cockpit. The leather wrapped steering wheel is tilt and telescopically adjustable, flat-bottomed to ease entry and exit and made from ultra-lightweight magnesium to provide super-precise feel through the wheel. The adjustable Recaro seats cradle the occupants and, along with the perfectly placed aluminum pedals, complete the optimum connection between driver - Evora - and the road.
The rear seat area is cleverly hidden within the exotic, mid-engine profile of the Evora.
The Evora is a pure sports car that you can comfortably enjoy every day. Pricing will start at $73500 in the US.
