Who wants to conquer the U.S. market . . .

This is currently the world's only mid-engined sports car that still has auxiliary seats. It therefore has 20 centimeters more wheelbase than the otherwise technically quitesimilar Exige. As a result, of course, it has once more a good 200 kg more kerb weight. Since there is now available an optional automatic (+2000 €), will then added another 50 kg. The good Colin Chapman, Master of lightweight construction, would turn over in his grave.

It certainly runs not on schedule with the Evora, so much it is also praised by the British Top Gear specialists. Originally a V8 was planned, the would have let forget the extra kilos. A kind of in-house development with professional partners such as Cosworth. But unfortunately, Lotus has obviously got the wrong parent company. It is the Malaysian manufacturer Proton.

They are with their own vehicles only very moderately successful. The reason is that in their own country, the protective tariffs fall (have to) and thus sales have declined sharply. Long gone are the times that Proton could almost send over the domestic media a success message every day. Now the high level of government shareholding revenges obviously. Hardly anyone wants to have apparently Proton.

Of course, this is still a respectable light car, even if for Lotus atypical air conditioning is now standard. Actually not a bad idea, a 2+2 coupe. Although, who is able to afford this car, certainly probably still has at least a second car. Also the always rather short options list at Lotus has become noticeably longer. For example, for the Sports Racer are added once more 8,000 euros. 04/14               Top of page               Index
