It’s currently on a Middle East tour, making its first appearance at its Dubai retail outlet, which opened a year ago. For those in the area, the vehicle will remain in the Dubai showroom for a few more days before stopping by the showroom in Abu Dhabi as well as at a few private events. The world’s most powerful series production car comes at a hefty price, $2.1-million to be exact.
“We believe the Evija will really appeal to Gulf state customers, and we’re developing the car with them – and particularly the local climate – in mind. Real-world testing of prototypes is now underway to ensure optimum performance in every market,” said Lotus CEO Phil Popham.
