Lotus Evora news - Evora borealis - 2008
Lotus unveiled its bright light of the
future at the British Motor Show earlier today, and we’re still not sure what
we think about the looks, although in the metal it’s definitely a better looker
than in that early shot.
But either way, it’s causing a bit of a
hooha down on the show floor - the blonde ladies are helping, obviously - as
new Lotus models always do.
We still haven’t managed to get a close
enough peer into the cabin to see how much room there is on those back seats,
but we’ll go for a poke around later when there’s more room (we tried earlier
but all the camera crews got a tad uppity).
The Evora - what does that mean? - will
go on sale early next year at around the £45,000 mark, and its 276bhp 3.5-litre
V6 is rumoured to be Porsche 911-worryingly quick. Lotus is saying 0-60mph in
less than five seconds.
So take a
look, and tell us what you think
about the first all-new Lotus for 13 years.
