Today's used car of the day is not going to be cheap.

Yes, it's a 2021 Lotus Evora GT, and not surprisingly, it will cost you.

It will cost you, alright -- almost 100 grand. Ninety-eight thousand dollars, to be precise.

There are only a tick over 3,000 miles on the clock, and the car has a manual transmission and an Alpine stereo with a subwoofer and an amp. This is one of the few cars we'll feature on UCOTD that is still under factory warranty.

If you've got the scratch and this car is your type of thing, give it a look here.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for, CarFax,, High Gear Media, Torque News,,, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as,, and He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    I'll take the red Esprit instead.

      This is why I don't show other cars in the ads of the car I'm selling.

    I suspect from reading things by people who have actually driven these that the driving experience is beyond sublime... if you have either a track or a mythical empty, curvy canyon road close at hand.

    In the real world where I live, this is just going to be a more expensive and painful way to do the same sort of driving that I can do in my $18k used BMW.

      I've driven one, it's a reasonably comfortable, painstakingly tuned race car that you can tolerate all day or all week. And the s/c V6 sounds great.

  • 2manyvettes Tadge was at the Corvette Corral at the Rolex 24 hour sports car race at the end of January 2023. During the Q&A after his remarks someone stood up and told him "I will never buy an electric Corvette." His response? "I will never sell you an electric Corvette." Take that Fwiw.
  • Socrates77 They're pinching pennies for the investors like always, greed has turned GM into a joke of an old corporate American greed.
  • Analoggrotto looking at this takes me right back to the year when “CD-ROM” first entered public lexicon
  • Alan My comment just went into the cloud.I do believe its up to the workers and I also see some simplistic comments against unionisation. Most of these are driven by fear and insecurity, an atypical conservative trait.The US for a so called modern and wealthy country has poor industrial relation practices with little protection for the worker, so maybe unionisation will advance the US to a genuine modern nation that looks after its workers well being, standard of living, health and education.Determining pay is measured using skill level, training level and risk associated with the job. So, you can have a low skilled job with high risk and receive a good pay, or have a job with lots of training and the pay is so-so.Another issue is viability of a business. If you have a hot dog stall and want $5 a dog and people only want to pay $4 you will go broke. This is why imported vehicles are important so people can buy more affordable appliances to drive to and from work.Setting up a union is easier than setting up work conditions and pay.
