Be still, beating heart: this is the first all-new Lotus since the Elise arrived among us 13 long years ago – and it’s truly beautiful.
The world’s first mid-engined 2+2 and gorgeous with it, the Evora gets its oomph from a 3.5-litre V6 engine, which promises awesome performance, and celebrates Lotus’s 60th anniversary year.
You just know it will be terrific to drive. It comes with all the tricks and trimmings you’d expect from such a car in this day and age and it will be here next spring.
MM verdict: look out Porsche and the rest.
