The Lotus Evija Should be on Top of Every Millionaire's "Wishlist"
Are you a millionaire? And do you like cars, speed, high status, and living the luxurious life ? If you have around a PHP100 Million to spend, then we might just have the right hypercar that will suit your wealthy lifestyle.
Meet the Lotus Evija. It's fast--extremely fast.
The Evija, which is derived from the name "Eve", can be traced back to Biblical Hebrew that means 'alive', or 'living'. It can produce a whopping 1,973-horsepower, with a spectacular pull of 1695 Nm torque. It can go from 0-100 km/hr in around 3 seconds, or around 300 km/hr in nine seconds.
Just to give you an idea of how fast it is, the world record for a galloping horse is 88 km/hr. The fastest production sports car, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, averages at around 431 km/hr. Subtract just a hundred here, and there's the Evija. Yes, it may not break records here, but it's still an extremely fast car.
What's more, its all-electric. It's the first-ever, all-electric British hypercar. So not only is it one of the most powerful hypercars today, its also environment-friendly as well.
The Lotus Evija weighs 3,700 pounds. It has a 70-kWh battery pack, and when completely charged (in 9 minutes), can run around 400 kilometers, tops. Despite its innovative design, the 70-year old company's goal is surprisingly grounded. According to Design Director Russel Car, their aim is to "re-establish their brand on the global automotive stage" and "pave the way for further visionary models."
Lotus will begin its production in 2021, and will sell only 130 Evijas in the market. If you're really serious about getting this attractive hypercar, then you have to give a reservation fee of around Php16 Million just to secure a much coveted spot. At that price, you've already bought a a Mitsubishi Pajero GLS, a Toyota Land cruiser LC200, a Honda Accord, and a Mazda CX-9 2.5 Signature.
Of course, we're just being our practical selves, here. But really, you're not much of a practical person if you still want to buy an Evija after reading this. Remember: this car is the ultimate status symbol oozing with testosterone and muscle. You're crazy not to flaunt it around and show everyone you're on top of your game.
