Lotus Evora S Sucks at Hooning

There are a lot of much better cars to use for drifting, power sliding or just burning rubber than the Evora S, but that’s what makes this video shot by Shmee150 at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed so interesting.
While it was attacking the hill climb circuit, the British sportscar took a moment to hoon about, burning some rubber in a less than impressive manner. Our take is that the Evora S is uglier than a Porsche Boxster and it doesn’t sound all that great, but who are we to judge it.

At the core of the S version of the Evora lies a mid mounted, transverse 3.5l V6 engine which develops 350 PS at 7,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. With a maximum speed of 172 mph (276 km/h), the car is capable of reaching the first 60 mph in 4.6 seconds.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
