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 easier.
The 3.5-liter V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance producing 400 horsepower with 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. In the 400, selection of either a six speed, close-ratio manual gearbox or an optional automatic transmission 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 sports car developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work more efficiently, to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging.
The interior has ultra-lightweight sport seats included with a 2+2 configuration and a fully revised ergonomic dashboard layout with a leather trimmed steering wheel with racing line indicator. The Evora 400 provides proof positive that Lotus makes supercar ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and giant-killing.
