Leafing through Autocar this morning I came across an unlikely lookalike. It’s never struck me that the Lotus Evora and Ferrari California look remotely similar but now I’m not so sure. Granted one’s a mid-engined car from Norfolk and the other is a front-engined car from Italy but, and I may be wrong here, but there is an uncanny resemblance from the front three quarters.

Note the grilles. The Ferrari’s is more of a grin, while the Lotus looks slightly more confused, but the shape is the same. Then there are the little vents to the sides of the front opening. Both sets of lights have a feline appearance and there are similar scoops just in front of the back wheels. Of course if you view these cars from any other view they are instantly distinguishable, but today for some reason they look similar.
