Rossion Q1 vs. supercharged Lotus Evora

A friend test drove a Rossion Q1 and was very impressed with the car and wanted to upgrade to one, but recently the Lotus Evora caught his eye. In stock form, the Lotus is significantly less powerful, but it's less expensive and if outright speed were the only criteria he'd likely just get a GT-R. It seems like a supercharged Evora would be a very fair match for a Q1. What do you guys think? What's the best fun, fast and exotic car in this price range? Pics for reference.

Well the S/C evora isnt out yet and is really just rumors right now.

The Evora N/A is coming out and will be very slow i think. Which the S/C will definitely help maybe a year down the road but it wont make it anywhere near the Q1.

I say Q1 every day.

+1

the Q1 is available now. and will be faster. The Evora will be cheaper to maintain, but will rival the Q1 in performance after he sinks Q1 money into it.

If you want the almost perfect race/fun car get the q1 b/c its a serious weekend warrior and barely rivaled. If you want a fun, and going to be WAY more comfortable and be a blast, get the evora.

A lot of the Lotus guys are the same kind of guys that appreciate the Noble/Rossion. Many have both cars.

A Noble is my dream car, so I'd take a Q1 any day, especially over the Evora. Now if you were talking Noble vs. Exige 260, that might be a little tougher call.

I think they are slightly different kinds of cars. Q1 is a hardcore but still livable coupe, Evora is a more GT style sports car 2+2. I think I'd take the Q1.

Noble57 can only hope to improve
I own a Q1 therefore have a biased opinion but I do know mass is your enemy, neutral handling and HP are your friends. The Q1 is 500 lbs. lighter. Not sure what the SC HP is on the Lotus but it would need to be 550+ to be equivalent.

Does the Evora have an adjustable suspension?
