At the 2010 Paris Motor Show Lotus unveiled the new additions to the award-winning Evora range with the Lotus Evora S and Lotus Evora IPS. Now we’re not too crazy to see the two models make their North American debut at the 2011 New York Auto Show next month but what we are crazy about is seeing our hero Bob Lutz unveil them.
That’s correct – Bob Lutz, a member of the Lotus Advisory Council, will unveil the Lotus Evora S, Lotus Evora IPS and the new Lotus KV Racing Technology.
