1.Lotus Evora GTE
Go to the Lotus International website and look for the Evora GTE, and words like ‘race-car’ keep sprouting up. That’s no mistake, but the good news is that Lotus made a limited run of street-legal versions of the GTE. Essentially, this is an even lighter Evora, being pushed by an even more powerful engine. A street-legal race car, it uses the body and other parts of the Evora endurance racers and showcases gobs of carbon fiber.
A supercharged 3.5-liter V6 pushes out 444-hp, and is considered to be the most powerful Lotus vehicle to date.
It sounds like an absolutely incredible machine, and it’s a shame that it’s limited to such a small run, all of which will only be available outside of the U.S. Why won’t it come to the US? Blame it on our emissions regulations.
