Cool Cars & Great Deals

I enjoy few things more than watching kiwi drivers succeed on the world stage, and this week is the perfect example. Starting with Scott Dixon and Scott McLaughlins 1-2 finish in the Nashville IndyCar race, Mitch Evans is in contention to win the Formula E World Championship this weekend. 

Dixon's 53rd top-level victory moved him ahead of the legendary Mario Andretti in the all-time winners, second only to AJ Foyt. He has also moved to second in the standings with three races left in the season; a seventh title is now within reach.

Evans needs a couple of great results to get ahead of Stoffel Vandoorne, but after a mechanical issue thwarted his title hopes a year ago, expect him to be in unstoppable form in this weekend's double-header in Seoul.

In keeping with a Motorsport theme, our feature car this week is from Lotus, who have notched up a combined 13 Formula One Championship titles, along with building some legendary road cars, and the Emira is the distillation of everything Lotus has built up to now. It is also the end of an era: the last petrol-powered production car from Hethel. As Shaun discovered, It delivers everything a Lotus should on the road, combined with a new level of refinement. It's also the best-looking (road-going) Lotus yet.

I hope you enjoy my latest selection of Cool Cars and Great Deals.
