DrRick Posted May 23, 2017 Report Share Posted May 23, 2017 So, I'm trying to get out of my Lexus ISF (5.0 N/A V8 with 417bhp), and get back into Lotus after a year with an S3 Elise S. My target, primarily due to budget, is an early Evora N/A. Simple question, am I going to be disappointed? I'm thinking the N/A power delivery might be similar to the ISF, but with only 2/3 the peak level, will I feel I have to wring its neck to get it going? I test drove an S2 Exige N/A to get a feel for that power train and was disappointed. Can the torque of the V6 overcome that initial 'gap'? I know I've got to arrange a test drive (not that easy, believe me), but I can't help feeling I'm putting the Evora on a pedestal somewhat. And the only way is down. I'm looking for driving to be an event, otherwise (no offence) I'd just buy a Merc A45-AMG. I can see that some of the event will come from just the static interior / exterior. But, and could it be a big but, the drive itself..... Put my kind at rest, or tell me I've got a point. I'll take either view.
