The new Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the new millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy.
The 3.5-liter V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance, producing 400 horsepower. It features a 24 valve, water-cooled, all-aluminum engine with an Edelbrock supercharger and a water-to-air intercooler. The 400 does 0-60 miles per hour in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 186 miles per hour. In the 400, choice of either a six-speed, close-ratio manual gearbox or an optional automatic transmission with Lotus throttle management blips on downshifts is available. Underpinning the Evora 400 supercar is a brand new efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub.
Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing and sportscar development, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work considerably more efficiently, allowing it to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging. The Evora 400 features a purposefully equipped and comfortable cabin with a 2+2 seat configuration. The interior has ultra-lightweight sports seats and a fully revised ergonomic dashboard layout with a leather trimmed steering wheel with racing line indicator. The Evora 400 provides positive proof that Lotus makes supercar ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and giant-killing.
