The Lotus Evora '09 is a sports car from British car manufacturer Lotus. It first appeared in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and later returned in Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 6.

DescriptionEdit

"A lightweight sportscar by Lotus that is also able to serve as daily driver."

When the Lotus Evora was introduced to the public in 2009, it represented the British company's first all new project in 13 years, and the first 2+2 (4-seater) since the Excel in 1992. The Evora was positioned above the Elise and Europa, because of its slightly larger body size and more widespread appeal.

What made the Evora special was its mid-engine configuration, as not many four seaters had their engine mounted behind the seats. That engine came in the form of Toyota's 2GR-FE, a 3.5-liter V-6 (from cars like the Blade) that was retuned by Lotus to produce 276 HP and 258.2 ft-lb of torque. This allowed the lightweight Evora, which weighed in at roughly 1382 kg, to dash to 60 mph in less than 5.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 162 mph, putting it in the same performance league as the Porsche 911.

The Evora's body design was uniquely Lotus, highlighted by a long front overhang and short rear deck. Inside the sheet metal, the cabin was a picture of luxury as it featured high-quality materials and ample space for larger drivers in the front seats. The suspension utilized double wishbones at all four corners. The ventilated discs with AP Racing 4-piston calipers provided plenty of stopping power, which helped make the Evora one of the best handling cars in thee world, and one that Colin Chapman would have been proud of.

HandlingEdit

The Evora is a missile down the straights, however it's a little less than spectacular around the corners for a Lotus. The car boasts a nice, clean turn-in, but struggles against a slight case of understeer coming out. This will mean that it's a little worse for tire wear than its counterparts in the Lotus lineup. Also, the brakes are a little weaker than they should be, meaning that you'll have to brake a little longer than usual. Still, as mentioned above, others in its performance class will find it hard to beat on the faster tracks.
