About Lotus Evora
Drivers who prefer to fly under the radar should never pilot a Lotus Evora. Parking this vehicle in public becomes a spectator sport. With the futuristic drone of the engine, its miniscule size, and sporty-chic appearance, passersby cannot help but look. Some turn away and take a second peek. Some gawk, and some just drool. The bright red, computerized dashboard screen offers a cozy, spaceship ambience, but what matters most is the way the car handles, from the satisfying feel of the round metal gearshift to its powerful "liftoff" acceleration and ultra-responsive steering. The front end is light and lively, but the bulk of the weight lies in back, offering a stable, grounded feel. Although the sticker price packs a wallop, shoppers might find a more affordable option on eBay. Trustworthy sellers offer new and used vehicles, such as the curvier Lotus Elise or a Lotus Esprit featuring space-age angles and sharp edges. Bear in mind that a Lotus does not ooze practicality. Child carrier, cargo mover, gas saver — the Lotus Evora is not, but most minivan or Prius owners would jump at a chance to pilot this exhilarating machine.
