Lotus Wants You To Test Drive The Evora 400, But Only If You're As Agile As It Is

It's not often that a company trying to sell a new car—particularly a fairly expensive, limited-production sports car—implies that potential buyers may not be up to driving it. Yet Lotus may just bruise a few fan egos with an unorthodox attempt to promote the new Evora 400. The Lotus Evora 400 Agility Test is based on reaction-time tests used in fighter-pilot training programs, Lotus says. The goal is to move a yellow square around the board while avoiding several moving squares for as long as possible. Unveiled at the recent 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Evora 400 is a refreshed version of Lotus' more upscale mid-engined sports car. A supercharged 3.5-liter V-6 produces 400 horsepower and 302 pound-feet of torque, enough for a 0-60 mph acceleration in 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.
