May 27, 2013 in Auto News, Lotus, New Cars by admin

The Evora is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 from Toyota’s parts bin, tuned slightly to produce a more striking 276 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. Placed behind the traveler compartment, the motor delivers its power to the rear wheels via either a six speed manual or six speed automatic transmissions.


The car weighs in at just less than 3,000 pounds, resulting in a sub five second zero to 60 mph sprint and a 160 mph top speed. Fuel economy is actually quite good considering the Evora’s performance credentials, with the EPA rating the car at 20/28 mpg and 19/28 mpg for the manual and automatic versions.


The options are Bi Xenon headlamps, three wheel choices ,power folding exterior mirrors, a Tech Pack with a high zoot Alpine Mobile Media System, Bluetooth, cruise control, rear parking sensors, an even higher-end Alpine/Lotus IMPRINT audio system, reverse camera, and full leather trim.


Enthusiasts will want to check off the Sport Pack, which includes unique throttle response and a higher RPM limiter, a sports traction control mode with improved slip thresholds, a sports diffuser, cross drilled brake discs and engine oil cooler.
