New ride: Lotus Evora

Hello everyone,

A few days ago we added a new car to the fleet and I'm super excited about it. It's a Lotus Evora and it is a compete blast to own. I'm not used to riding so low and having so much attention, but thus far the car has been a blast. She is white with a red interior and anodized rims. Please feel free to comment, I'm so excited and figured I would share with the car community! Thanks in advance for any compliments!

Those cars are awesome ...

I still find it funny that they are powered by a Toyota Camry engine.

Thanks guys! People always kid about the power plant, but for the most part it has been changed by Lotus. The fuel injectors, spark plugs, etc are all different and the engine has been re-tuned. Toyota dealers can't service the car because of how different it is. The thing that gets me is the clutch. It's is a $5,000 bill to get a new clutch. Luckily we are a long way from that point, but man that's harsh.

I rode in one. These guys run on rails man no corner too tight. They are the opposite of a Mustang in the sense the use low weight and high output low ci but I can appreciate the technology. Love it.

Haha I'm working on the Lamborghini right now, there are a couple I like a lot, but it all depends on how my company is doing. The Evora is the exact opposite of the Mustang, it's not going to replace my stang. Though I wouldn't race the two on a track and have much hope for my mustang. The only bad part of the Evora is getting in. The door sills are huge and covered in leather, so getting in is not graceful if you don't want to beat up the car. We have also had four people in it, but the two in the back were kids lol.
