The Lotus Evora is a sports car developed by Lotus, which was first unveiled at the British International Motor Show. In 2009, it was put into production with a 3.5L V6 by Toyota. Unlike the Lotus Europa S, the Evora is not based on the Elise platform, but on a completely new one. A 345 bhp superchaged variant called the Evora S is also in production.
Two Evoras have already entered and finished the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. Besides that, the car has also made an appearance in Top Gear.
Need for Speed: World
The Evora has a light body, which allows it to benefit from multiple performance advantages. It is easy to handle in corners due to having a lot of grip and thus turns faster than most A Class cars such as the Lamborghini Murciélago LP 640. Its acceleration is up to par with the latter and more powerful compared to the Porsche 959. Despite that, the Evora still possesses a strong nitrous boost. Standard top speed is 192 mph (309 km/h).
It is one of the best vehicles players can purchase for in-game cash, considering it is one of the few cars in the game to feature a powerful perfect launch and well-rounded performance simultaneously. However, its power might be lacking to the Ford Mustang RTR-X and other SpeedBoost only cars.

Need for Speed: The Run
Before being officially confirmed on October 26, 2011, the Evora has made occasional appearances in earlier trailers of Need for Speed: The Run.
In the final release, the Evora appears as a Tier 3 car and as the "Ciara Signature Edition", which is featured as a Tier 5 car. The Evora is unlocked by default, whilst the Tier 5 variant is unlocked upon beating 25 group objectives. Both cars have a Normal handling rating.
Compared to other Tier 3 vehicles, the Lotus Evora has a poor acceleration and weak nitrous boost. It can hit a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h), but is not very agile in corners.
The Ciara Signature Edition has a slightly lower 0-60 mph time (3.7s) and number of brake horsepower (572 bhp at 6,350 rpm) than most Tier 5 cars. It can reach a top speed of 215 mph (346 km/h).
