Love the looks.

Agree with most that the expected launch spec of circa 4.5s 0-60 is disappointing and slower than all the outgoing cars. Needs to be circa 4.2 to get any attention from other markets.

I think there has been a miscommunication somewhere re the engines I have seen a few outlets say the same thing, this is what it says on the Lotus site

I think the 4 cylinder will be 60k 360bhp the v6 will be 70-80k 400 bhp

I also think somehow the rear wheel looks smaller than the front in a lot of pictures.

the configurator does a much better job selling me on the car!! 

Well I think they avoided all the details on purpose, letting it be disclosed by all the third parties videos ready to be launched that just popped out.
It's probably better to generate some noise around the car. If we knew it all already, we might not have watched a couple of other videos already.
It's better for the brand that these third parties videos have a lot of views.

By the way, especially in the yellow pictures above, anyone notice how much lower the engine is sited - much lower than the Evora if you look at the view out the back!

That bodes really well for CoG and handling.

It would be great if in the future Lotus could make an MX5/ 60’s Elan type budget sports car

It will be electric and lot of fun!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

That’s what I would do! Not sure if I can wait until next year though. I am tempted to put a deposit down though! Would have to have the black wheels 🤔

On the Evora it's the chargecooler & compressor which is on the top, isn't it? At least the chargecooler might have been relocated?

Nope look at the top down pictures. The wider stance and body changes has meant the engine is lowered. Nice.

Ah, but (a) emissions regulations and (b) how often did you need to service the Evo :)
