Lotus might not be winning anything in Formula 1, but at least they can use the credit to sell a few cars.
They just unveiled a limited edition of the Evora called GP. It pays tribute to the company’s racing heritage. The car is inspired by the Lotus GP Formula 1 car and features a similar livery with black body, red aero pats and gold stripes and wheels. It looks cool.
It is also fully loaded and features premium package, the technology package and a rearview camera.
Base don the Evora S, the GP edition is powered by the 3.5-liter V6 Toyota engine, enlivened with s supercharger to develop 350 PS and 400 Nm of torque. With a 0-100 km/h time of 4.8 seconds and top speed of 277 km/h, it is pretty sprightly. And at the end of the day, it has the sweet ride and handling of the Evora.
It is a very desirable car. But the problem is they only make 3 units, each riced at £69,950, which is steep as it is, but is nothing compared to the price you are going to have to pay out in the market if one of the three ever popped up for resale.
