The Name’s Evora…The Lotus Evora

Hello (DriveTribers?) once again, and I hope you’re enjoying the season of goodwill for Man and toys. This time we’re taking a look at a car that James May tried to redeem in the Patagonia special. A car that Clarkson thinks is an acronym for “Lots of Trouble Usually Serious”…it’s the Lotus Evora.

At first glance, I noticed the missing the missing door mirrors. Aaand that’s it. That’s literally the only thing I don’t like about this car. Yes, there’s one or two paint smidges, but that car was produced almost a decade ago and it’s been through a lot in its box. Of course you’d expect something to have gone wrong. Alright, this will just be me licking Hot Wheels’ arseholes. The model is acebiscuits. Runs smoothly, artwork is meticulous, the bottom details are…maybe not the there. But the details on every bit from the rear to the hood is just bloody brilliant. It doesn’t show in the picture, but the rear end of the car, apart form looking both like a Bentley and a Porsche, has the logo beautifully painted along with the lights, the obligatory Hot Wheels logo and a few other bits and bobs. It simply looks great. Oh, and remember the twirl-y drift move? I think I got lucky with it this year. This one does it better than the last one.

I’m not going down metaphor lane this time, but I’ll only say that it reminds me of a racing car that I can’t remember the name of. Or a wedge of cheese. Or even a better one; it’s like if the Lotus Sports Elise and the Esprit had a child. Or a car that a car designer from the 60s would come up with. Right, that’s enough. And on that bombshell, it’s time to end. See you in 2024. Buhbye.
