Lotus Evora S and Evora IPS: Paris Auto Show Preview

We already know that Lotus is to announce two new Evora vehicles at the 2010 Paris Auto Show, but we had yet to learn their names. However thanks to a press release sent to Autoblog we now know that they are to be called the Evora S and IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift).

The specs read well on paper — well on a browser — but how will they translate on the road? Lotus has always made cars that do not offer the best in performance, but more than makes up for it in handling — lets just hope that the two Evora’s stick with that tradition.

The Evora S is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 Toyota engine, which produces 345hp. 0-60 can be achieved in just 4.8 seconds and will keep going until it reaches 172mph.

The Evora IPS is a tamer version of the S model, but will come with a new six-speed automatic transmission. The driver will be able to choose which mode they prefer to use, either manual shift or fully automatic. The question is, are these the Ferrari rivals that Lotus said were coming back in June?

For the complete technical specification you can view them on the press release on Autoblog.
