Lotus takes Evora to the States

Lotus takes Evora to the States

Lotus Evora fq

The American version of the Lotus Evora has been recently unveiled at the LA Auto Show, its been made ‘midsize’ for the U.S market. The Evora has a mid-engine 2+2 sports car layout and can fit two adult American males up front and there’s still room in back for a couple of kids. Power comes from a Toyota-sourced 3.5L V6 producing 276 hp, 0-100km time is a rapid 5 seconds.

The Evora will be built on a new assembly line at the rate of 2,000 annually for worldwide consumption. Talk of a supercharged S model is probably true, and Lotus executives have confirmed that a convertible variant with a power-retractable roof is in the works. Production of the standard Evora will begin in October of 2009. Six-speed manual-equipped models will be available in the beginning, with an automatic (with paddle shifters) coming to market in April of 2010.
