MY12 Lotus Evora S IPS: Sports "Testing" Sideways

Lotus Chief Vehicle Dynamics Engineer and all-round lucky guy, Matt Becker, rags the new 345bhp, 400Nm supercharged 3.5-litre V6 Evora S IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) auto sideways around the all-new Hethel Test Track in Norfolk, looking at the MY12 improvements – Sat Nav (that actually works!), new leather seats, 'Sports' mode and all-new rorty sports exhaust. The video focuses on the clever electronic tricks of the IPS in auto and manual modes, with rev matching, gear hold, blips on downshift etc. Goes well on its home test track, as you'd expect and sounds darn nice now... don't you think?
