Former Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button has unveiled his limited edition Lotus Evija hypercar at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in Monterey, California.
The car is one of just 130 that will be produced, and Button’s is finished in a unique Arctic White and Verve Yellow colour scheme that pays tribute to his 2009 Brawn GP race car.
The Evija is powered by four electric motors that produce a combined output of 2,000 horsepower and 1,700 pound-feet of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds and has a top speed of 217 mph. The car’s battery pack is good for a range of 250 miles.
Button said he was drawn to the Evija because of its combination of performance and sustainability.
The Evija is the first all-electric car from Lotus, and it represents a major step forward for the British automaker. The company is committed to becoming a leader in the development of sustainable vehicles, and the Evija is a key part of that strategy.
The Evija is priced at over $2 million, making it one of the most expensive cars on the market. However, Button believes that the car’s performance and exclusivity will make it a desirable asset for collectors and enthusiasts.
