Lotus Evora testing at Nurburgring
There are no secrets left about the Lotus Evora. We’ve already seen all the official photos from Lotus of this new mid-engined 2+2 coupe. This is just the first time we get to see it in its element down at Germany’s Nurburgring.
Powering Lotus’ new GT will be a Toyota 3.5-liter DOHC V6 making about 280 horsepower. While that usually isn’t a lot of power for a car that wants to hang with Aston Martins, its Lotus’ founder Colin Chapman’s motto that saves the car. He believed "to add speed, add lightness", and the under 3000 lb weight of the Evora will insure a fast ride.
