Lotus Evora at Geneva

The production Lotus Evora debuts at Geneva; New 2+2 will cost from £47,500

Lotus gave the production version of the new Evora its debut in Geneva. Deliveries of the Porsche Cayman rival will begin in May with prices starting at £47,500, perhaps a little higher than expected. The mid-engined 2+2 is powered by a 280bhp 3.5-litre V6 and is capable of 0-62mph in around 5secwhile achieving CO2 emissions of 205g/km, a pretty healthy figure in its genre.

Customers will be able to choose from a range of equipment packs and there will be an optional Sports button, which sharpens the car’s throttle response and liberates an extra 500rpm.

Lotus has already confirmed plans to develop an automatic model as well as an Evora roadster, while a high performance ‘GT3’ version with more power is also likely.

Also on the firm’s showstand was the latest Exige S, which features a revised front end, a larger rear wing and CO2 emissions of 199g/km – down from 216g/km. It will be available from April.
