Lotus Evora wins over British car enthusiasts

Wed, 10 Dec 2008
People planning on buying a car in the new year may want to hang on until the Lotus Evora arrives in showrooms across the UK, after it was given the thumbs up by British vehicle enthusiasts.

The model scooped the title of Overall Most Rated Car of 2008 in a poll of iMotor Magazine readers.

Some 95 per cent of participants chose to rate, rather than slate, the vehicle.

Mike Kimberley, chief executive officer of Lotus, said the award was particularly impressive considering the car did not go on sale in the UK until next spring.

Commenting on the popularity of the Evora, iMotor editor Mat Watson said: "Its ... score of 95 per cent is truly impressive and enough to see it beat brilliant machines such as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and Nissan GT-R."

In other motoring news, Lotus released its Sport 2-Eleven GT4 Supersport race car last month.
