WAGmobile Wednesdays: The Lotus Evora

August 20, 2014

WAGmobile

Wednesday has rolled back around and you know the drill – it means it’s WAGmobile Wednesday time! Where we bring you your weekly dose of the female stars and their glitzy cars, ranging from glamorous limos to insane supercars! This week’s edition features the stunning Lotus Evora and its easy to see why this sexy coupe grabbed the attention of American songstress Alicia Keys!

  • The Lotus coupe was designed to rival the likes of the popular Porsche Cayman
  • Class leading handling thanks to its super lightweight chassis
  • Available from just £53,080

 

As an iconic British automaker of high-performance sports and racing cars, Lotus has an extensive history with Formula One and have not disappointed with the Lotus Evora. This sexy coupe is a rear-wheeled drive, mid-engined sports car, with its sights clearly set on its main rival – the Porsche Cayman. With its lightweight aluminium bonded chassis, distinctive Lotus design and spirited performance, the Evora is the car of choice for American R&B singer and songwriter – Alicia Keys.

Alicia has been spotted cruising through the streets of New York City in her swish Lotus, opting for the scarlet red version of the coupe – it looks like she’s a girl on fire after all! The Evora comes with little luxuries such as Recaro leather seats, electric mirrors and a flat-bottomed magnesium steering wheel. It’s got a road-hugging profile to match Alicia’s figure hugging attire – keeping trim with its lean chassis, the Evora weighs in at just 1382 kg – making it one of the lightest coupes around.

 

This naughty little sportster boasts performance specs to live up to its looks – bounding from 0-60 mph in just 4.9 seconds and reaching a lightning-quick top speed of 162 mph! This is all thanks to its pumped-up 3.5 litre V6 high-performance Toyota engineered motor. Options are quite rare when it comes to stripped down sports cars, however, with the little Lotus drivers get a choice when it comes to horsepower, opting for either the standard 276 bhp on tap or the supercharged 346 bhp unit that slashes three tenths of a second off the Evora’s standard acceleration. Fuel economy figures aren’t too bad with 217 g/km CO2 emissions and you can even choose between a manual or automatic transmissions.


If you want to get your hands on this cheeky coupe, it could be more affordable than you think. Starting at just £53,080 for the entry level Evora or £66,850 for the range topping ‘Sports Racer’ version, the Lotus is far cheaper than many of its supercar rivals.
