Lotus Evora

Lotus developed the Evora, a model that offers high levels of luxury, packaging and convenience, dynamic performance and innovative chassis technology. It receives power from a 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of developing 280 PS which promises breathtaking performance. It has an elegantly styled cabin trimmed is a very special way. Here we can find electric power-fold door mirrors, and an advanced touch-screen multi-media system. Beneath the skin the entire front-end structure is a high tech aluminum sacrificial modular unit, attached to the main extruded aluminum tub. Actually, this modular unit is designed to deform for maximum safety and to reduce repair costs in the event of frontal impact. The new model will be hand crafted and built on a dedicated new assembly line in the east of England. It uses fluid forms and crisp surfaces to communicate velocity, agility and sophistication. Lotus products have always embodied a perfect balance between form and function and the Evora successfully continues this heritage. Aerodynamic considerations for drag, down force and cooling had significant but positive influence on the overall form and details such as air intakes. The view from the rear three-quarters is just as striking and the one that many will become familiar with as the car passes them on the road. The design language of the interior reflects the simple exterior, fluid surfaces, soft forms and crisp feature lines wrap around the cabin cosseting the occupants. Focused courtesy lighting is used throughout the interior, giving a spectacular illuminated feel to the sculpture design feature of the cabin. Even the entry level versions of the Evora will feature leather-upholstered seats, upper door trim panels and fascia, but it is expected that most customers will opt for the full hide treatment. Thanks to a range of leather colors available, customers will have the possibility to design their own Lotus Evora.
