Lotus may be a tiny to the point of nonexistent car company, but they currently build one the very best sports cars on the market. The Evora 400 is a light, focused, organic sports car that delivers old-school thrills and enough performance to keep up with some serious machinery. It’s priority is driver involvement, and it shows. It’s one of the few remaining Europeans exotics that comes with hydraulic power steering and a manual gearbox as standard equipment. For a purebred sports car experience in a rare, exotic package, it is very hard to beat.
The Chevrolet Corvette, on the other hand, is a far more familiar thing. It’s popularity stems partly from the fact that it is one of the best performance bargains out there. The Grand Sport model, however, is one of the best performance cars period. It can take on the very best on track, yet still work as a daily runabout or a freeway cruiser. It’s well-roundedness is well known, but is it as good as the exotic Evora 400? Watch this video from Carfection to find out.
