Further industry recognition for the
multi-award winning Lotus Evora with the most 'Fun
to Drive Car' award from Popular Mechanics as
they celebrate the Top 10 Cars of 2010.
The expert automotive editorial team at Popular
Mechanics has tested over 100 vehicles during
the course of the past year to identify the best
in automotive design, execution and technology
for 2011 model year vehicles in ten specific
categories. When the tire smoke settled and the
engines and brakes cooled off, the ONE vehicle
they found most Fun to Drive for 2011 is the
all-new Lotus Evora.
Summarizing his automotive editorial team's
findings, lead Popular Mechanics' automotive
Editor Larry Webster said: "We're all car
enthusiasts so every sports car is viewed with
an especially critical eye. The Evora simply
floored us. It combines everything we want in a
performance car - gutsy engine, stunning looks,
and a dash of practicality - with the driving
dynamics we've come to expect from Lotus. It's
the most entertaining car on the road."
One of the primary guiding principles through
all of Lotus' 60 plus years of existence has
been to build very pure, communicative and
inclusive sports cars making them exceptionally
fun to drive.
Commenting on the award Dany Bahar Chief
Executive of Group Lotus said: "It's very
gratifying to receive such a prestigious award
from the editors at Popular Mechanics. With the
Evora we set out to deliver a high performance
sports car without sacrificing on comfort, a
Lotus that you could happily and comfortably
live with every day, yet still providing 100
percent of the exceptional ride and handling
experience we're famous for. This award, and the
many others the Evora has received, justifies
our mantra of performance through relative light
weight and fun to drive focus."
"This award is perfectly timed as we're set to
head to the LA Auto Show where people can come
and see not only the brand new Evoras, the S and
the IPS but they can also experience the future
of Lotus with our all new product line-up as we
unveil the Esprit, Elite, Elan, Elise and Eterne."
