Today, at LA Auto Show Lotus unveiled their US version of the Evora. In general it is the same vehicle as the one that was seen in Europe a few months back, but this time it is here, on the American soil, and so close, I can't sit in my chair. I loved that car from the time I saw the first concept sketches that were leaked into the internet a while back. It is an absolute beauty. But to top it off, looks like it got the backing too. This is a larger creation, as compared to Lotus Elise, and supposedly comfortably accommodates 2 American males up front with room in the back left for kids or gear (wait, did they just call us fat?!) But really-- this is a huge deal, when Elise is not an option for many people just due to its size. 0-60 in 5 seconds, top speed of over 160 at 30 mpg, plush interior with a touch screen multimedia system and full navigation and overall sweet design. Does it get better than that?! It is set to be available for purchase this time next year. So keep those piggy banks stuffed till then!
