The Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the New Millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. The Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity so succinctly. Despite producing 400hp (406ps) from its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, with its comfortable cabin displaying many new features, the overall kerbweight of the Evora 400 has been reduced by 22kg over its forebear. As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce at high speeds, simply enhances its supercar appeal.
The exquisite 3.5-litre V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance of the Evora 400. Its induction system has been supplemented by a revised supercharger and a water-to-air chargecooler, that raises power to an outstanding 400hp (406ps). Select the first of the its six, close-ratio, manual gears and the acceleration is viscerally exciting. In fact, the automatic version is even swifter off the mark, its performance sharpened by the Race setting in the Dynamic Performance Management system. A V-max of 186mph (300kph), experienced from within the Evora 400’s purposefully equipped and comfortable cabin, provides proof positive that Lotus makes supercar ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and giant-killing.
Underpinning the Evora 400 supercar is a brand new, efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing and sportscar developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work more efficiently, to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging. Yet, it is 48lbs (22kgs) lighter than the outgoing Evora model, features more equipment and literally doubles the downforce available.
The Evora 400 is Lotus‘s fastest model, worthy of supercar status. It is stylishly attractive, beautifully designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive new front cooling intakes, past the fascinating lateral graphics, to its more prominent rear, 5-blade airflow diffuser and new three-element tail spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built supercar. Yet, because it is a Lotus, the Evora 400 features ‘zero-lift’, although the aero package increases downforce by 50lbs (23kgs) at V-max, to make more efficient use of its immensely capable road manners.
Suitable for several SRO Racing Championships and the Lotus Cup Series, the Lotus Evora GT4 is designed to provide a competitive racing package straight ‘out of the box’. Its lightweight chassis and the composite and carbon fibre body provide a surprising amount of cockpit space, despite the compact exterior dimensions. The Evora GT4 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity to perfection. Boasting 356bhp (360PS), its kerbweight is an exceptional 1,200kgs in race trim. As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce, simply enhances its on track performance appeal.
With a 3.5-litre, normally aspirated V6 engine, power is at an outstanding 356bhp (360PS), allied to a strident 328lbs ft (445Nm) of torque. Select the first of the its six, close-ratio, sequential gears and the acceleration is phenomenally exciting from a standing start. Equally exciting is its stopping power from the four-pot competition brakes set-up, experienced from within the Evora GT4’s spartan but purposeful cockpit. It provides proof positive that Lotus makes race car ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and potentially giant-killing.
Underpinning every Evora GT4 is an efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing car developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. It allows the adjustable race suspension to work efficiently, to provide leech-like grip, surgically sharp turn-in and a dynamic balance that is mind-blowing.
The Evora GT4 makes no pretence about its race-winning potential. It is attractive, well designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive front splitter, past the lateral air intakes, to its more prominent rear airflow diffuser and bootlid spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built racecar. Yet, because it is a Lotus, the Evora GT4 features ‘zero-lift’, although the aero package increases downforce, to make even more efficient use of its beautiful on track manners.
