Lotus will unveil its new 2+2 GT today at the British Motor Show at 11:30. The car was named Evora, after a city in Portugal and will go on sale in the first half of 2009. It will be limited to 2000 units a year.
The Evora is the only car on the market with a mid-engine layout and a 2+2 seating configuration. It is powered by a modified version of Toyota’s 3.5-litre V6, with dual VVT-i that produced 280 hp. It can hit a top speed of 160 mph; the 0-60 mph sprint from standstill is estimated at sub 5 seconds.
The car features leather and aluminium on the interior, blue LEDs, bucket seats, hand-stitched leather, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, 7-inch touchscreen multi-media system with satellite navigation and Bluetooth connectivity.
