Lotus builds pure sports cars that fly under the radar because they're so rarely seen among the flocks of faceless cars and crossovers. The British automaker's prestige has fluctuated throughout its history, but memorable models such as the wedgelike Espirit sports car and lightweight Elise roadster represent high points. The company currently offers a single model—the Evora. This mid-engined sports car is light on the scales, sharp around corners, and looks exotic. The electrified Evija hypercar should help publicize the brand when the exclusive model enters the lineup.
The all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar is both visually exciting and mechanically extraordinary, with ultrafast charging capability and almost 2000 horsepower.
With its lightweight chassis of bonded aluminum, supple suspension, and mid-engine layout, there’s nothing ordinary about the 2019 Evora 400.
The Elise is a pure-driving roadster not for the faint of heart.
The Exige is a track-ready missile that share its chassis and interior with the Elise.
