My buddy Davis Adams works for Autotrader.com. Davis talked about the things he liked about the new 2012 Lotus Evora S.

Of course, the design is one of things Davis loves. Another thing Davis loved were the numbers on the S:

The 2011 Lotus Evora 2+0 will have a starting price of $64,000 while the 2+2 variant, the worlds only mid-engine 2+2, will have
an entry price of $65,500. New Evora S models priced at $76,000 for the 2+0 and $77,500 for the 2+2 variant respectively.

Davis also likes that all the buttons are metal instead of plastic.

Watch the Lotus drive up a dirt road and go around Laguna Seca, all while Davis talks about the features of the Lotus Evora.
