Lotus of Portland - 9008 SW Canyon Rd. Portland - 503.258.5500Here's a list of options this 2011 Lotus Evora S in Aspen White has: Premium Pack, Tech Pack, Sport Pack, Sports Gearbox, Premium Audio, Lifestyle Paint, Diamond Wheels, Backup Camera, Star Shield. That's all of them. A dealership, less original than we, would say that this is "fully loaded". However, being more original than that we will say this is "wholly, thoroughly, and without exaggeration, an example of that which is brimming with myriad accoutrements one would surmise befits a conveyance of this caliber."Edit: Due to the international attention that this vehicle has received recently by being featured on Jalopnik.com, we've been respectfully asked to rewrite our listing (by some very, very important people) without the original British slang term that may be offensive to some British people that actually know what the word means. So with that, we shall say that we apologize and God Save the Queen.
And, this is still fully loaded. You should buy it.PAINT: Aspen WhiteINTERIOR: Paprika LeatherMILEAGE: 2,660ENGINE: 3.5l Supercharged V6MPG: 17/26TRANSMISSION: 6-Speed ManualDRIVETRAIN: MRTITLE: Clean, 1-OwnerWARRANTY: FactorySTOCK NUMBER: PGT2119VIN NUMBER: SCCLMDSU1BHA11720Lotus of Portland is Oregon's only official Lotus dealership and service center.

The rear-wheel drive Lotus Evora has a mid-mounted aluminum 3.5L V6 engine with dual overhead cams that churns out 276 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota-sourced engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, with an optional close-ratio gearbox also available. Published numbers for the Evora give it a top speed of 162 mph, a 0-60 mph time of 4.9 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 12.5 seconds. A new S version is available for 2011, which bumps horsepower to 345 and torque to 295 lb-ft via a supercharger and active exhaust. The IPS version features a 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters, allowing the driver to switch between three modes: manual paddle shift, sport paddle shift and fully automatic.
Four-wheel anti-lock vented disc brakes provide stopping power. Suspension is fully independent, with anti-roll bars front and rear. The composite body and bonded aluminum frame ride on top of 18-inch front wheels and 19-inch rear, with standard cast-alloy rims. Silver or Gloss Anthracite forged alloy wheels and Stealth Grey cast alloy wheels are available as options.
In addition to ABS, electronic brake distribution and electronic differential lock are all standard. Two-stage front passenger airbags are standard, as is a child seat fastening system in the rear. (By most accounts, children are the best fit for the Evora's rear seats.)
Those seats come in the form of adjustable Recaro Black leather. The steering wheel is an adjustable, flat-bottomed leather and magnesium one. Air conditioning, power windows, remote unlocking, two 12-volt sockets and the Lotus command center are standard, as well. Two standard exterior paint colors are available, Ardent Red and British Racing Green. Optional colors include Liquid Blue, Starlight Black, Isotope Green and Ice White.
The Evora comes with an Alpine CD/MP3/WMA stereo system with an iPod dock and auxiliary input. The Tech pack upgrades the system to an Alpine Mobile Media Station capable of playing DVDs, MP3, AAC, WMA, and DivX-encoded video on a 7-inch touch-screen display. Alpine BlackBird portable navigation and Bluetooth connections come with the package, which also adds cruise control, rear parking sensors, and tire pressure monitoring. The Tech pack itself can be upgraded to optimize sound reproduction in the cabin.
Adding the Premium pack to the Evora gives you a choice of seat leather colors -- charcoal, oyster, paprika or chestnut. It adds lots of extra interior leather touches, like on the door pockets, and an Evora logo on the dash.
The Sport pack gives drivers and enhanced throttle response and RPM limit, plus sports traction control mode with greater yaw and slip thresholds for even sportier handling. It also adds an engine oil cooler and cross-drilled brake discs.
