For serious drivers, the new Lotus Evora ‘Sports Racer'
• Its impressive performance is matched only by its impressive value.
It's been a busy year for Lotus; the arrival of the acclaimed Exige S; featured marque at the Goodwood Festival of Speed; a new flagship retail store in Regent Street; third place in the F1 Drivers' Championship and fourth in the F1 Constructors' Championship; and amongst various racing exploits, another series win for a Lotus wîth an Evora GTC taking the MSA British Endurance Championship.
Following the excitement of this race series win, the new Evora 'Sports Racer' is a visually enhanced and optimised version of the mid-engined 3.5 litre V6 sports car, available in both naturally-aspirated or supercharged variants. The Evora 'Sports Racer' proves its value on the pocket, as well as on the road and track - it delivers phenomenal performance, exclusive style, incredible excitement and genuine affordability!
There are three main factors that set the 'Sports Racer' apart from the existing Evora range; firstly, it receives a unique exterior colour scheme wîth an optimised interior to match. Secondly, it comes fully loaded, boasting Lotus' ultimate specification. While thirdly, it's more affordable than ever, representing great value. Here's the detail:Aesthetics:
The Evora 'Sports Racer' is available in a choice of four colours: Aspen White, Carbon Grey, Nightfall Blue and Ardent Red. To stand out from the crowd, the 'Sports Racer' receives unique contrasting accents of gloss black across the roof, front splitter, rear diffuser and side sills, exaggerating the Evora's aggressive stance and sleek silhouette. Further black elements include black rear badging, black door mirror pods and gloss black forged wheels wîth a choice of either red or black brake calipers which all work to give the 'Sports Racer' a more dramatic and focused appearance.
Inside, the 2+2 seating option is standard and comes adorned wîth black leather 'Premium Sports' seats trimmed wîth red contrast piping and stitching. The dash, doors and centre console receive a liberal dose of Slate Grey SuedeTexTM wîth red contrast stitching, highlighting the car's sporting character.
