2010 Lotus Evora
Lotus has made a step in a different direction from their usual two-seaters. The 2010 Evora has 2x2 seating with adjustable Recaro Leather sport seats in the front and Leather seats with ISOFIX in the rear. Now you won’t have to choose which friend is your favorite. The Evora also comes with an Alpine multi-media system, 7” touch screen sat nav, DVD, Bluetooth and ipod connectivity keeping you technologically plugged in. Welcome to 2010.
The 2010 Evora still has that sleek and sexy body that Lotus cars are known for, turning heads and screaming aerodynamics, while the wheels and tires give a hint of the performance capabilities of this diamond in the ruff. The rear three-quarters view is sure to be engrained in many-a-minds as it becomes a familiar sight while passing. The tapered cabin, diffuser, floating wing, centrally mounted twin tailpipes and distinctive engine bay vents all combine to create a completely unique look.
The Evora has a mid-engine, transverse-mounted all-alloy 2 GR-FE 3.5-litre V6 DOHC, with dual VVT-i (‘intelligent’ variable valve timing). Lotus has developed its own T6e engine management software to optimize its compatibility with the Evora giving it a peak power output of 276 hp at 6400 rpm, while boosting its maximum torque to 252 lb. ft. at 4700 rpm (prototype figures). Power like this will have you screaming down the road at an expected top speed of 160 mph.
The Evora is no slouch when it comes to safety. Its bounded chassis tub has incredible inherent strength, particularly in regard to side impacts. Driver and passenger airbags are standard. Anti-lock brakes are standard on all models, as well as Lotus Traction Control (LTC); these systems have been specially developed in Co-operation with Bosch to enable less skilled drivers the ability to exploit the braking and acceleration capabilities while allowing skilled enthusiasts more freedom to enjoy their Lotus driving experience.
