2013 Lotus Evora news, pictures, specifications, and information
The Lotus Evora, is available in two versions - the Evora and the Evora S – and is regarded by some as one of the most exciting and genuinely useable sportscars on the market today. Both cars have a 3.5 litre V6 engine and both produce phenomenal performance so the obvious question is, what's the difference between the two? The answer in a word is supercharger.

The base Evora has 280 PS and tops out at a quick 261 km/h (162 mph) whilst returning an impressive 217 g of CO2 per km. The Evora S has 350 PS (345 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lbft) of torque, courtesy of a supercharger which gives acceleration of 4.8 seconds to 100 km/h (4.6 seconds to 60 mph) and a maximum speed of 277 km/h (172 mph).

The Evora S comes wîth a sport pack as standard featuring a 'sport' button which allows the driver to increase throttle response. The sport button also raises the instantaneous rev limit and changes the Dynamic Performance Management (Lotus DPM) settings resulting in a total experience change.

There are cross-drilled brakes for improved cooling. And here's a heads up for those who buy into the old adage 'you can tell the men from the boys by the size of their toys': the external emotion of the Evora S has been improved wîth a completely new active exhaust which means that at the push of a button the car sounds just as dramatic as it feels.

Dany Bahar Lotus' Chief Executive Officer summed it up by saying: 'You don't realise what you were missing from your driving experience until you get behind the wheel of the Evora S.'

So apart from the obvious power difference, how is the Evora S different to the Evora? It's another question we put to the CEO (given that he's spent a little time behind the wheel, we thought he'd be best placed to answer questions). This is what he said: 'It's the next level of Evora experience. It communicates even more wîth you, the suspension setting has been fine tuned for added power and control so it responds even more to your direction. It's an instinctual car, the experience is pure.'

Evora IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) option.

This option gives the Evora an automatic 6-speed gearbox wîth Lotus developed transmission control wîth a 3.5 l V6 engine delivering 280 PS assuring a superior automatic driving experience.


The IPS option of the Evora allows the driver to switch between manual paddle shift and automatic drive modes. The driver also has the option of selecting 'sport' mode which showcases the Lotus sport driving experience allowing the driver to really feel each gear shift and be in complete control of the transmission.

Commenting on the IPS option, Dany Bahar said: 'The Evora IPS broadens the appeal of the Evora and allows us to reach out to a slightly different market. We expect it to be popular wîth established automatic locations such as Asia, the Middle East and the ÚS. It's been a long time since Lotus created an automatic and we've spent a great deal of time refining this one to make sure that it perfectly compliments the Evora drive experience.'

'We are proud of the whole Evora range, each version does the true Lotus experience justice. With a wider selection of options, the Evora will appeal to a broader audience, even those who don't want to use their left foot to change gear! With higher quality levels, more options available and all round improvements to the whole range, it's a taste of what people can come to expect from the next generation of Lotus cars - performance through lightweight, style, comfort and efficiency.'
