short: An athletically styled and surprisingly fuel-efficient sports coupe.
Built with a sturdy yet lightweight aluminum frame, the Evora weighs in at about 2,976 pounds, allowing the racer an impressive fuel economy of 30 mpg on the highway. This four-passenger sport coupe contains a 3.5-liter V6 engine from Toyota and utilizes hydraulically assisted power steering, vented and cross-drilled disc brakes, and a forged aluminum wishbone suspension. Inside the car are leather seats and accessories, including a touch-screen multi-media system with satellite navigation. Lotus says that each car will be handcrafted in the United Kingdom, and that only about 2,000 Evoras will be produced each year.
Base Price: $75,000 (est.)
Vehicle type: mid-engine, 4-passenger, 2-door coupe
