Lotus Chicago // Mancuso Motosports gave me a chance to get behind the wheel of the new for 2020 Lotus Evora GT. The all new GT is a bit of a departure from the older Lotus' we've come to know and love, and possibly a departure from "Simplify, then add lightness." At the end of the day it's still an incredibly simple, driver focused car that follows your instructions to the letter. With that said it's still a track focused car, with just the right amount of creature comforts added in. If you wanted a car that can do just about everything (except haul a large box) this just might be the ticket.

Always amazes me how people can review cars without knowing anything about the car. Carbon tub comment, not much more weight vs a exige, evora needing carbon brakes & the na lexus engine comment are all wrong Overall a nice review and a excellent car but please get your facts straight.

In your Video you say that you also drove an Exige. I don´t know exactly which type of Exige you drove before but all new types of Exiges are supercharged starting with 350, 380, 410 and 430 (They only differ in the types of superchargers). T So which one did you drove? Or can someone else give me a hint which one he drove? Nice Video!

Back in the day (almost 50 years ago) I was the second owner of a genuine RHD Lotus Super 7. It was a hoot to drive, but rather primitive compared to the current offering. I put a rod through the block and ended up selling it to a guy in Virginia for $1,000 more than I paid for it, which was a lot of money back then. I've always wanted another Lotus, but I've had to settle for playing Forza 7 lately.

The Evora 430 has similar specs and performance to the Exige Cup 430 but I have not been a fan of the Evora style. Really wish US could get the Elise and Exige again. As for this car being better than any track weapon or purpose built car.... a K powered Exige OR Exige Cup 430 begs to differ.

I believe those keys are called “Tibbe” style. Australian Ford Falcons had these from the early 90s so definitely not new tech. Seemed to be pretty effective against car thieves and key forgers.

I'm not a petrol head but I admire Lotus and the other exotics for their craftsmanship. It's good to know you still need a shoehorn to get into one. Lotus hasn't compromised one bit and that's a good thing. Really nice car. Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

that lotus is so beautiful and so sick. what a gem! Id love to drive one or even own one or hell just sit in one. The sound alone is glorious on that 2GR-FE engine! I am a die hard true lexus / yota fan and will keep my lex forever if i can even once i get a newer one, its an 06 is350 with the 2gr-fse. makes me wonder what a supercharger would sound like on mine.
