Whereas its stablemate, the Elise, is still struggling with downmarket materials, the Lotus Evora is targeting a much more sophisticated clientele with its swish interior and tidy, beautifully proportioned 2+2 layout. Unlike other models in the Lotus range, this car wants image and quality to have an equal footing alongside performance and handling. Let’s take a closer look at what it offers.
The Lotus Evora borrows its engines from Toyota, just like its Elise stablemate. But unlike its zippier mate, the Lotus Evora makes use of a 3.5-litre V6 unit that has also been used by the powerful Lexus RX350. It might be surprising to some that Lotus have decided to implement such a hefty engine, but it has been modified so that it caters for Lotus’s demographic.
This means a sharper throttle response, as well as enhanced efficiency and flexibility. Overall, it’s just a bit edgier than the package
