Lotus Evora MY 2012

At the IAA in Frankfurt in September 2011 the new Evora for Model Year 2012 was introduced. There have been more than 130 improvements.

Changes included

  • Close Ratio Gearbox, Bi-Xenon headlights and Body Coloured Door Handles now included as standard throughout the range
  • Revised selection of Paint Colours, including some unique to the Evora and the new Motorsport colours.
  • Revised gear linkage, gear stick design and positioning.
  • Pioneer headunit for the Tech Pack, replacing the previous Alpine unit.
  • New exhaust design to give a more evocative exhaust note.
  • Redesigned door seals and latches.
  • Revised interior with additional Premium Sport option, new colour options, leather covering on extra surfaces to improve the look and feel, redesigned steering wheel, higher quality leather, new floormats, etc.
     

Although there is no complete list of all changes available, this gives you an idea. Basically, Lotus wanted to make a huge step forward as far as built quality is concerned, in order to meet the company's future standards. With the MY 2012 Evora Lotus wanted to show the public which direction they are going.

One of the improved area's was the interior of the car. We did see a higher quality leather. And a major improvement was the smoother gear changing, due to new gear change cables and a new flywheel and clutch. There were some improvements to the suspension and very noticable was the new valve in the exhaust, opening to bypass the silencer at 4700 RPM (1,500 RPM in Sport mode).
