It’s a sure sign of Spring when four legendary marques roll out their new supercars. Here’s what to look as the flowers begin to bloom: Maserati’s MC20, Porsche’s 911 Turbo S, the Lotus Eletra (“the world’s first hyper SUV EV), and Ferrari’s Purosangue. Get all the details here.
The new Lotus Emira – the marque’s last gas powered sports car – takes dead aim at Porsche’s 718 Cayman series. Lotus’ goal is to broaden its customer base, and anticipates a global market for 4,500 Emiras a year…a huge leap over the carmaker’s previous production figures.
The F355 was Ferrari’s successful response to the next-to-last ranking of its F348 predecessor in a five-way Car and Driver comparison. This 1995 F355, with only 900 miles, is offered by Bonhams at its Scottsdale auction, with a pre-sale estimate of $130k – $160k.
Introduced at the 1962 Earls Court Motor Show, the Lotus Elan caused a sensation. Just 145 inches long on an 84-inch wheelbase, the Elan was a waif of a roadster. With a fiberglass body on a separate steel chassis, the Elan weighed 1,500 pounds.
Featured in the James Bond movie, The Spy Who Loved Me, the Lotus Espirit is a classic car that was once turned into a submarine. It was a badass-looking wedge-shaped road missile that captured the spirit of the mid 1970s.
Premier is proud to announce its exclusive partnership with Lotus Cars USA. For the first time, this provides a factory-sponsored program that allows Americans to lease the 2020 Lotus Evora GT, which Car & Driver magazine has described as a “special machine for the hard core” car enthusiast.
Sir Stirling Moss was one of the sport’s greatest competitors. Moss won over 40% of the races he competed in, totaling a winning number of 212 races. He won the 1955 Mille Miglie and many races in Formula 1, all before the age of 32.
Dan Gurney was the all-American racer, the tall, cool motorsports athlete who became as much of a household name as sports figures like Mickey Mantle, Joe Namath, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
Geely, the Chinese company that owns Volvo, is adding Lotus to its portfolio, as well, taking a 51 percent share. Amongst this, Lotus Evora 400 and 410 Sport models keep the flame burning quite brightly. This $93,000 machine is definitely worth the price.
