Lotus EvoraLotus builds one for the rest of us.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> You love your Lotus Elise, but everytime you take the kids for a ride, they cried. They don't like riding on the engine cover. That's why Lotus did this, the brand new 2 plus 2 Evora. ^M00:00:15 [ Music ] ^M00:00:18 >> The power comes from this mid-engine, transverse not a V6. They source the guts from Toyota, but then breathe all over it in a Lotus fashion, 280 horsepower, good for 0 to 60 in less than 5 seconds. ^M00:00:31 [ Music ] ^M00:00:32 >> The head unit is Alpine, 7-inch, touch screen, nav, DVD, Bluetooth, iPod -- you get the idea. As I said, behind there are 2 plus 2 rear seats. Now on one hand the kids won't be crying, on the other hand the DA will be after you for child abuse. ^M00:00:48 [ Music ] ^M00:00:50 >> The Evora comes on market probably Fall of '09 in the U.S. Just in time for Christmas '09 gift-giving. Don't forget your old buddy. Pricing just under a hundred grand or so. ^M00:01:02 [ Music ]
