| Lotus have taken the award-winning Evora and re-created it with a 345 HP supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine to create the Evora S. Dany Bahar, Lotus' Chief Executive Officer, summed it up beautifully when he said: 'You don't realise what you were missing from your driving experience until you get behind the wheel of the Evora S.'
'The 'S' is the next level of Evora experience. It communicates with you better; the suspension setting has been fine tuned for added power and control so it responds even more to direction. It's an instinctual car, the experience is pure.'
The Evora S comes with a sport pack as standard featuring a 'sport' button which allows the driver to control throttle response and activate the exhaust by-pass valve. The sport button also raises the instantaneous rev limit and changes the dynamic stability control settings resulting in a total experience change. There are cross-drilled brakes for improved cooling. In addition, the external emotion of the Evora S has been improved with a completely new active exhaust which means that at the push of a button the car sounds just as dramatic as it feels. Continuing, Dany Bahar said: 'The Evora S is a natural progression for us but more than that, it's a taste of what people can come to expect from the next generation of Lotus cars. It retains core Lotus values such as performance through lightweight but it also gives more than that. It's the perfect combination of top performance, style and comfort. Form doesn't sacrifice function in the case of the Evora S.'
In addition to the Evora S, Lotus will also debut the Evora with the IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) option in New York. This inception of the seven-time-award-winning (who's counting? We are!) Evora sees an automatic 6-speed gearbox with Lotus developed transmission control mated to the Evora's standard, naturally-aspirated 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 276 HP and assuring a superior automatic driving experience.
