VIDEO: Lotus Evora reviewed

The Lotus Evora S offers the best balance of steering, ride and handling performance of any car on sale, says Jon Quirk. Our man visited Lotus HQ in Hethel to test the company’s flagship coupe on road and track.

The Evora is a stunning car, both aesthetically and technically. For the money, the Evora S is one of the best drivers’ cars we’ve tested, but it’s the Porsche 911 that offers a more rounded ownership proposition. You’d need to be very committed to choose the Evora S over a 911, but we’d completely understand if you did.

Proton cashes in on Lotus F1

In order to cash in on the glamour and fame associated with Formula 1, Proton – owners of the Lotus F1 outfit – has just launched this, the Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing.

Proton Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing

Which got me thinking – which is the best F1-associated road car? We’ve had the Renault Clio Williams – and its newer Clio R27 and Megane R26 siblings – the Honda Civic VTi Jordan, the Essex Oils Lotus Esprit Turbo and the spectacularly tenuous Fiat Seicento Schumacher. Continue reading

What’s your favourite Lotus?

Lotus makes the definitive benchmark sportscar – ask any motoring pundit on a specific sportscar’s ability, and the response will almost certainly include: “It’s not as good as a Lotus”.

They are the ultimate lightweight dream cars, punching well above their weight and champions of the handling ring. The Elise is quite possibly the finest roadster on sale today, while the Lotus model range is a roll-call of the greatest sportscars in the world.

Stand strong…tread lightly…

Lotus Elise

Lotus Elise

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

It was a sure bet against Russia last Wednesday – but that went horribly wrong.

Even in the face of the mighty Springboks on Saturday – we looked heroic. But that ended in failure.

And a week of misery for British sport culminated in the Sunday afternoon Brazilian Grand Prix debacle which saw rookie Lewis Hamilton robbed of his chances to become world champion in his debut season.

In a bid to climb out of the desolate hole of gloom the nation seems to be wallowing in, I looked up a few British success stories and found something we can all wax lyrical about – British sportscars.

Looking at owner reviews of the awesome Lotus Elise, the mind-blowing Noble M12 and the truly astonishing Westfield Roadster confirmed that us Brits love lightweight sportscars.
