Lotus is offering a first drive of the Evora to attendees of the British Motor Show…sort of. The carmaker teamed with Polyphony, the makers of Gran Turismo, to allow visitors to race around the streets of London in an Evora. The experience may be more realistic than you think as both of the pictures in this post are from the Playstation 3 game.
The real car (originally known as Project Eagle) is a lightweight 2+2 available initially as a coupe, with a convertible joining shortly after the release. Power should come from a Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter V-6 making 276 horsepower. For those of you who want to drive the real Evora, it won’t be released until next spring.
