Introducing a rare sight in New Zealand, the Lotus Evora.
Lotus, based in Norfolk UK are renowned for their racing and sports car heritage and the Evora, launched in 2009, was a risky break away from their tried and tested Elise platform. It's safe to say it worked, allowing Lotus to create a 2
+2 mid-engined sports car with a cooled rear storage space large enough to fit golf clubs & a cabin that's comfortable for tall passengers. In fact, the then CEO Mike Kimberley was 197cm so it's not just us saying it can easily accommodate the long-legged.
The engine is a V6 3.5L producing 206kW reaching 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds & maxing out at 262km/h. The unit originally manufactured by Toyota sits on top of an aluminium frame that keeps the weight of the vehicle just under 1400kg. As Lotus were looking to boldly challenge the 911 market with this model, they have worked hard to create a balanced and refined ride to the car. The suspension setup isn't bone shaking, it's handles town roads with relative ease and the engine produces a soothing rumble rather than a supercharged screech. However, as soon as you shift down and poke your toe on the accelerator it quickly shows you what it's capable of. It's hard to find a sports car that balances performance & comfort so well and with no fuss.
The interior has been designed to bolster that comfort aspect with leather coated Recaro seats and a sweeping centre console that houses a modern infotainment system. The machined chrome throughout hasn't aged over time and manages to maintain a simple elegant interior finish.
How have we come across it? We are selling it on behalf of the owner who is looking for another type of car entirely. We know this is a perfect car for someone looking for something that is a little more unique and has some heritage behind the brand. You really have to try to it understand it so contact us today.
