The new and improved Lotus Evora 400

Lotus, builders of some of the most iconic and sublime cars of all times finds itself, yet again, approaching dire financial straights. It needs a hit, a palpable hit, and it has chosen to update, up-rate and subtly alter its Evora sportscar for even more bang throughout the performance envelope.

2015 Chicago Auto Show

This year's show holds its own, however, hosting a variety of interesting new production cars, concepts and special editions.

High-tech sights from the 2015 Nuremberg Toy Fair (Photo: C.C. Weiss/Gizmag)

It might seem strange that Gizmag spent a good chunk of the busy month of January playing with toys at two major toy fairs, London and Nuremberg. The toy segment is following consumer technology closely, though, and many of the same trends that we see at major shows like CES and IFA are also evident at the international toy fairs ... only in smaller, simpler, more child-friendly packages. Proclaimed as the world's biggest toy fair, the Nuremberg Toy Fair ("Spielwarenmesse" in German), which wrapped up earlier this week, gave us a good feel for how toy companies are incorporating the latest technologies, including robotics and connectivity.  Read More

Those prices are both quoted without drivetrain, and to retain the lines of the car around...

There aren't many cars that you can say will be an instant collectible before they're off the showroom floor, but this is one of them.
