Presumably offers in excess of the new list price, to get one early. But would you really want to buy from anyone that was not a lotus dealer.

Think it’s a 250k deposit to get one so bit of a gamble for someone if you can’t flip it for more dosh!!!

First year's production was announced as sold out, not all of them.

Has there been anymore updates about when the first evija will get delivered, back in august autocar said  :

lotus has pushed back the launch of its Evija hypercar by a minimum of five months as a result of delays in the testing programme caused by the pandemic, Autocar can exclusively reveal.

The Evija, a near-2000bhp all-electric hypercar, was set to be with the first customers by the end of this year but that will now happen towards the end of the first half of 2021.:

With the current state of covid 19 are lotus still hopeful for the above.  Look forward to seeing one - maybe when the nearest dealer has its opening day?

Dated 21.01.2021: << Lotus CEO Phil Popham told Automotive News Europe on Wednesday ... >> ... << There’s also the 2,000-horsepower Evija hypercar, which was supposed to enter production last summer but was delayed because you know why. Now, Popham says the company is hoping to deliver the Evija to customers “by year end.” >>

Cheers, not seen that one, Popham has gone I wonder if his targets will be met. Or will it be delayed even further. Seem to be a lot of things coming this/next year or when...

Reading the Evija battery specs, 2000 kW sounds a lot of power. But then the battery pack only holds 70 kWh. So, running the 2000 plus horses flat out, the battery pack would empty in 126 seconds. Not even my Range Rover can empty its tank that fast! But I suppose you could always run in Eco mode if you actually wanted to drive anywhere. Now, where did I put that fusion generator?

It only needs to last enough to do a burn out from one Kensington traffic light till the next

But will find a point to recharge at each traffic light, and how many hours/minutes would it take.

I know these questions crop up from time to time, but do we have any idea of the total number of Evija orders to date and when the first customer car will be delivered? We know that the 2020 allocation was sold out, but that was presumably only a handful, which Covid has postponed into mid 2021. It’s now been 20 months since the unveil, so it will probably be a full 2 years until the first car is supplied. Do we really think they’ll sell 130 units at that price?

Remember to be “sick” these days.....you must pronounce words with a vowel with another vowel and more of them please.....it’s not “signs”  in ‘21.....it’s “Saaagns”!🤦🏻‍♂️

Is that weird vibrating noise at the end  of the video clip supposed to be the Evija’s sound? 
 

No thanks from me, I won’t tick that options box. I’ll just go for the standard ev motor wizzing noise.
