Roaring to go

  • Lotus Evora

This is the fastest Lotus road car built so far, with the aim of moving from the GT class into the supercar club. And with a 400bhp 3.5-litre V6 engine that zips to 100kph in 4.2 seconds, that isn't over-ambitious! Mirroring that performance, the styling too is more aggressive: deeper face bar, bigger cooling intakes, three-element tail spoiler etc.
