A year after presenting the Lotus Evora Sport 400 at the Geneva Motor Show, the British firm has decided to replace it with another model that is very similar, but in this case weighs less and delivers more power. You reach major markets in June, although the United States will have to wait until the end of the year. Its price? Between 105,000 and 110,000 euros for one of the 150 units manufactured each year to preserve its exclusivity.
Lotus Evora Improving performance
With this formula of less weight and more power, it is not surprising that their benefits have improved over its predecessor. Associated with a manual gearbox can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds , reaching 300 km / h top speed. With automatic transmission improves acceleration data in a tenth, but “only” can reach 280 km / h top speed.
Other important changes
Lotus engineers have not only worked on reducing weight and optimizing your engine, but have also modified the suspensions adjusting the level of damping to improve dynamic conditions. Not only that, since the body is now five millimeters more close to the ground and the tires are about Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 which must be great in circuit. The alloy wheels are 19 inches in front and 20 inches rear.
