Lotus Evora – Queen of Curves – National Motor Culture | Examiner.com

View all 14 photos Curves have a decided double meaning when speaking of Evora. In one manner Evora’s curves are about pure beauty and in another it’s how rapidly and safe Evora powers through corners. Considering the magnificent shapes Evora embodies, I am suggesting that the Lotus design studio had Victoria Secret catalogues around for inspiration. The design gods got their creation right. You will see different sensual lines every time you take her out; dating should be so rewarding. Appreciate a tailored look? Direct your attention to the narrow waistline of Evora. Imagine the figure of Scarlet Johansson on the Red Carpet. With this figure were Evora dressed in red or yellow, she ...

Twin-Cam Temptation – 1972 Lotus Europa

Twin-Cam Temptation #8211; 1972 Lotus Europa Lotus had helped in the revolutionary thrust toward mid-engine construction in Formula One and Indy in the first half of the 1960s, so it was only natural for the ambitious British company to introduce that technology to the world of road cars as well. Known internally as the P5 project, the Europa was introduced in 1966, therefore predating the Lamborghini Miura, Porsche 914, Matra M530, and Ferrari Dino. The new Europa used a steel backbone chassis similar to the one used on the Elan. but the early cars had to make due with the 1470cc motor out of the Renault R16, a front-drive unit that Lotus rotated 180 degrees for its mid-engined machine. Although ...

Lotus Europa SE – Road Tests – Motoring – The Independent

The Lotus Europa SE doesn’t have power steering or state-of-the-art electronics, and it’s the better for it You might have read about the new Lotus Evora, a sophisticated Lotus designed to steal sales from Porsche. It was the star of the London motor show, and production of this mid-engined, V6-powered GT car is under way with sales starting in March. That’s the big Lotus news, along with the fact that the company still exists. A strong research and development division is one reason; Lotus does much of this for other motor industry clients, and has much expertise in the attributes we’ll need in the near future such as lightweight structures and alternative power units. ...

Lotus Elise 111s

Elise 111S – The natural evolution The Lotus Elise 111S is a potent new derivative of the multi-award winning Elise. It is powered by a 143bhp (107kW) version of the renowned Rover K-Series VVC 1.8-litre engine, mated to a close-ratio gearbox, and provides a driving experience quite different to that of the standard Elise; it’s so different, in fact, that the Elise 111S is a separate model in the Lotus line-up. With its top speed of 133 mph and its ability to catapult from standstill to 60mph in 5.38 seconds, and to 100mph in 14.4 seconds, the Elise 111S takes the Elise range even further into supercar territory, and at a fraction the price of Italian and German exotica.
