The Lotus Evora is all-new for 2010, and much anticipated by sports car aficionados. It is larger than its Lotus stablemates, thanks to the addition of two small rear seats -- something you won't find in an Exige or Elise. Larger is a relative term when talking about Lotus, though, as the car still only weighs about 3000 pounds and stands about 48 inches tall. With a Toyota-sourced aluminum V6 under the hood, the Evora can turn in 0-60 mph times in under 5 seconds.
Excellent handling and performance; sports car with 2+2 seating; distinctive styling and exclusivity
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 has yet to issue official fuel economy numbers for the car, but Lotus estimates a combined 30 mpg, which is in line with the ratings for its other cars. The Evora has been more rigorously tested than any other Lotus before it, and comes with a 3-year/60,000-mile warranty.
