Luxury Cars: While the first two months’ worth of the 2010 Lotus Evoras ticketed for North American dealerships are already sold, the lucky buyers now know that the base price of their new car is at least $73,500. The automaker also announced that the only mid-engine 2+2 sports car is going on a 44-city tour of Lotus dealerships, the Open House Tour, from mid-November 2009 to mid-February 2010. The highly anticipated 2010 Lotus Evora hits the U.S. market in the first quarter 2010.

The base price serves as only the beginning, as there are numerous several packages and optional equipment that raise the selling price. There are sports, premium, and technology packages that add $1,275, $1,990, and $2,995, respectively, as well as a sports ratio six-speed gearbox and various alloy-wheel styles that also raise the price. Additionally, special paint jobs and features, such as a reversing camera and a set of power-folding mirrors, add to the price.

Believe it or not, the Evora is a sports car with a practical side. It delivers 30-plus mpg on highways yet accelerates from zero to 60 mph, in less than five seconds, and has a top speed of 162 mph. The vehicle comes standard with six-speed manual transmission and is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 276 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 258 lb./ft. of torque at 4,700 rpm.

Along with ergonomically perfection found in racecars, the luxurious interior has eye appeal aplenty with an aluminum instrument and center console panel, hand-trimmed double-stitched leather throughout, and adjustable Recaro seats. The optional Alpine audio system with touch-screen navigation along with iPod and other MP3 players connectivity make lifelong Lotus lovers double-check the car’s displayed signage.

The passionate and the patriotic ardent red and British green are the Evora’s standard colors. However, there is a full palette of 18 premium-, metallic- and lifestyle- paint options to consider. Read all about the 2010 Lotus Evora at LotusEvora.com.
