0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds; 0-100 km/h in 4.2
Top Speed of 186 mph; 300 km/h
Fastest production Lotus sports car ever
The first Evora 400 sport cars for customers and
dealers with Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc and
some of the engineering and manufacturing team at Hethel,
The first Evora 400 sports cars
destined for customers and dealers have driven off the assembly
line and are soon to arrive at dealerships across the UK and
mainland Europe. The significant occasion was marked by a small
celebration with proud members of the engineering and
manufacturing team at Lotus, who are responsible for
hand-building Lotus’ fastest production car to date.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc states, “The Evora 400 has
already received admiration and critical acclaim from media
around the world, praising its performance, handling and design.
In September and October, Lotus dealers throughout the UK and
mainland Europe will be receiving their demonstrator and
customers cars, so now is the opportunity for drivers to get
behind the wheel and experience the Evora 400 for themselves.”
Over two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its
supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine
which produces 400 hp and 410 Nm of torque. Such revisions
result in a faster and dynamically more capable model than the
previous Evora and are the reason the new Evora 400 has become
the most eagerly anticipated Lotus model for several years.
Weighing just 1395 kg, (42 kg lighter than the previous Lotus
Evora S) the new Evora 400 combines high performance with the
legendary Lotus benchmark handling. This performance, and
handling, combined with a maximum speed of 186 mph (300 km/h)
and acceleration 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2
seconds), enables the new Lotus Evora 400 to lap the Lotus test
track at Hethel seven seconds faster than the previous Evora S
in a time of 1 minute 31 seconds.
The Lotus Evora 400 benefits from a high level of standard
specification including 370 mm composite two piece brake discs
from AP Racing, a Limited Slip Differential, automatic
air-conditioning and infotainment system including satellite
navigation. In addition to this, the options list includes
automatic transmission, cruise control, Alcantara or Leather
trim upgrades and metallic paint.
A “Black Pack” option provides a distinctive look, with selected
exterior panels including the roof, sills and centre section of
the three-element rear wing in gloss black and a dark headlining
in the interior. Lightweight forged alloy wheels can be
specified along with optional yellow or black brake callipers.
Over the last 15 months, Lotus has increased its number of
dealers worldwide from 138 to 193.
North American markets and China will receive the Evora 400 as a
2017 model year in early 2016.
