The latest Evora by Lotus has added another award to its already burgeoning number of trophies, this time for iMotor Magazine's "Overall Winner - Most Rated Car of 2008."
In each issue of iMotor, which has an ABCe of 108,600, readers have been 'rating' and 'slating' the highlighted cars; and out of 40,000 votes tallied, 95 percent of voters rated the Lotus Evora, in contrast to just 5 percent putting it down making the latest 2+2 the most highly rated car in 2008 by the readers of iMOTOR.
The CEO of Group Lotus plc, Mike Kimberley, is totally pleased with the award, "This award from iMotor readers is particularly special as it demonstrates that we have produced a car that already has a fan base amongst the cognoscenti, despite the car being a few months away from the sale date in the spring." iMOTOR editor Mat Watson also added, "Unlike other car magazine awards, ours are decided by the readers.
Also they include concepts, models that are not yet on sale and some which the press has yet to drive. And it's clear the iMOTOR readers rate the forthcoming Lotus Evora more than any other car we have featured in the mag.
It's 'rated' score of 95 per cent is truly impressive and enough to see it beat brilliant machines such as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and Nissan GT-R. There's clearly a lot of excitement for this new Lotus."
