The truth is that for many years, we knew almost nothing about Lotus. A very mythical brand, and we’re very pleased that has been reborn, this yea with money is easier. However, a trade mark to possess money, does not mean that it will be successful, but that it is important for the development of new ideas and models. And this is precisely where in Lotus are working more strongly. And it is queLotus is currently working on the new Evora, which should see the light from 2013. The truth is that Lotus is working overtime in the new revision of the Evora, undoubtedly a model that will be designed to stimulate the number of sales of the brand, and in addition will serve to demonstrate to the public, the new design that will continue to be the majority of the new Lotus models starting in 2013. Without a doubt, and as you can see in the image, the most striking feature of the new Evora, is the new mouth of the radiator, much larger and more aggressive.
In fact, reminds a lot to models designed in the past by the current designer of Lotus and ex-Ferrari, Donato Coco. However, Donato Coco believes that traditional mouth of the current Evora is too weak for a modern high-performance car. In fact, and according to Coco: even many economic cars have a more aggressive appearance. In addition the new Evora will have a new and fully revised interior with a higher level of equipment, both number and quality. And it is that according to the owners of the Evora, always complained of this aspect. We do not know the prices of the new model, but knowing that the current Evora is available from 60.600, for the release of about 276 HP, and the S version of the Evora’s 345 HP, costs about 71,000, it seems clear that prices would not change too, above all by increasing quality, and it is even possible that the price increase something, but not too much. And more taking into account the pobrisimas sales of the current Evora.
In addition, the heads of Lotus still they are assessing if finally both versions with V6 engines as the V8, will be produced by Lotus, since we must remember that the current Evora S possesses an original Toyota V6 engine. This same has been what he said the general manager of Lotus, Dany Bahar, who said recently that: we have designed engines for other clients, why not make one for ourselves?. Anyway, Dany, admits that the final decision will be only a matter of money.
