Background
The Lotus Evora is a 2+2 Lotus and unique in offering four seats in a mid-engined package. Those rear seats are tiny, mind – but you can spec it as a pure two-seater with more luggage space. For more information on the Evora, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test
What an underrated gem the Evora is. You see hardly any about and it’s true that Lotus has struggled to sell them. This is a shame. Okay, its £60,000+ price point makes comparisons with more polished Porsche products more likely and at this level many buyers do want the polish that Lotuses have traditionally struggled to deliver. But Hethel has worked hard to improve its cabins and perceived quality and the Evora has become better. If only those doubters could drive it, feel the Elise+ steering response, experience the shove in the back from the Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre V6s. Pick the supercharged one if you want real punch, but even the nat-asp version is quick enough. Those rear seats are pretty minuscule, in the way that a DB9’s are. But it’s good to know they’re there, and it remains a miracle of packaging in a mid-engined car.
