Lotus has long made powerful, lightweight sports cars that are as fun to drive as they are affordable. With a price tag around $75,000, the Evora could be a zippy little daily driver, with the capability to hold its own on the occasional track day. The EPA rates the Evora at 17 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. The Evora has been more rigorously tested than any other Lotus before it, and comes with a 3-year/60,000-mile warranty.
After debuting as an all-new model for 2010, the Lotus Evora returns mostly unchanged for 2011. A new supercharged S version is available, bumping the power of the base model's 3.5L V6 to 345 horsepower, and a new IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) version mates the base-level engine with an all-new paddle-shifted 6-speed automatic transmission. The Evora's rear seat can now also be deleted.
The rear-wheel drive Lotus Evora has a mid-mounted aluminum 3.5L V6 engine with dual overhead cams that churns out 276 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota-sourced engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with an optional close-ratio gearbox also available. Published numbers for the Evora give it a top speed of 162 mph, a 0-60 mph time of 4.9 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.5 seconds. A new S version is available for 2011, which bumps horsepower to 345 and torque to 295 lb-ft via a supercharger and active exhaust. The IPS version features a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters, allowing the driver to switch between three modes: manual paddle shift, sport paddle shift and fully automatic.
