It's not as simple as that - the rate is currently pretty much as low as it's going to go so the only way it can go is up (we're along way from the days of $2->£1). I doubt Lotus have any substantual dollar reserves (if any) so they need to price it according to the long term. But I would expct some movement on price if things level out. I'm fairly sure that some countries with substantial dollar reserves will cash in the not too distant future and dump dollars on the market bring everything back in line. Its just at the moment everybody is just sitting tight waiting for something to happen.Can someone explain how the price is still $75,000, when the pound is down from $2.00 to $1.40 ?? Is the pound also down against the yen, making the engine (and other parts) just as expensive?
Price should be $75,000 / 2 * 1.4 = $52,500 = my first Lotus ever to be bought new.
Else I must wait...as usual.
But it's suppose to be a GT car. rotflMy 95 E36 M3 revved to 7200RPM. It is kind of pathetic that this lump only revs to 6600rpm. The C6 Z06 revs to 7000 and that is a 427ci stroked to hell 350 Chevy block based on 50 year old tech. I want to like the Evora, I really do, but that seems really weak for $60k.
It really does. I am reminded of this:Sure does look like a lot of overhang in the front of the Evora. It looks awkward in a side profile.
