2009 Lotus Evora
Project Eagle has finally been unveiled today at the 2008 British Motor Show as the Evora, and Lotus is beaming over its little eaglet. It is mid-engined 2+2. Powered by a Lotus-tuned 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 280 PS, and weighing just 2,976 lbs. The Evora promises breathtaking performance. During preliminary testing around the famous N��rburgring, the Lotus chassis engineers report that it is extremely agile and great fun to drive - even when clad with the full development disguise that hid the beautiful lines from the prying motor-industry paparazzi. The car will start hitting dealerships in the U.K. in the spring of 2009, with only 2,000 made and priced at £45,000 apiece.
