Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The mid-engine Evora is the only Lotus road car available in the U.S. for the 2013 model year. In contrast to the high-revving four-cylinder engines used in the automaker's Elise, the Evora has a 3.5-liter V-6. Larger, heavier and more expensive than the Elise, the Evora roughly competes in price and performance with the Porsche 911. The Evora is Lotus' first modern attempt at a daily driver, with options such as a two-passenger backseat and a navigation system.
New for 2013 The supercharged Evora S model is now available with the six-speed automatic transmission, which includes paddle shifters.
ExteriorThough it bears a passing resemblance to the Exige and Elise, the Evora two-door coupe weighs about 3,000 pounds, which is roughly 1,000 pounds more than those two cars. Lotus says the car was designed to be a better daily driver, with larger doors, narrower doorsills and a 2.5-inch higher seating position. Still, the Evora looks like a racecar. A low, broad nose extends far beyond the front wheels, while the rear wheels sit comparatively closer to the rear bumper. Exterior features include:
Standard 18-inch wheels in front; 19-inch wheels in back
Standard bi-xenon high-intensity-discharge headlamps
Lightweight aluminum chassis and aluminum and composite body
InteriorThe Evora's cabin offers a leather-covered dashboard with genuine aluminum accents. The automaker says the front seats can accommodate two 6-foot-6-inch adults, and the 5.7-cubic-foot trunk can hold a full set of golf clubs. The optional rear seats, however, are intended for kids. Interior features include:
Optional rear seats
Optional premium leather interior
Optional navigation system
Under the HoodMounted behind the backseat as opposed to under the hood, the Evora's 3.5-liter V-6 engine comes from Toyota. It makes 276 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque in the base model. A supercharged version in the Evora S is rated at 345 hp and 295 pounds-feet of torque. Both engines come with a standard six-speed manual transmission.
