The Carbon Concept, another version of the Evora, is featured at the Lotus booth at the Geneva Motor Show. This concept car was created to "emphasize Lotus" motorsport pedigree." With that in mind, only exterior modifications have been done on this car.
The engine remains untouched. The car is painted white and is finished in advanced water based pearlescent paint, contrasting with the carbon fiber panels.
Carbon is used on the roof as well as on the Lotus Motorsport inspired diffuser and splitter. The car rides on 9-inch alloy wheels front and rear, wrapped with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires (235/35 wide front and 285/30 wide rear).
Inside, we see the same line of carbon panels and perforated leather and matt alcantara featured on the footwell, dashboard and roof.
In a release, Donato Coco, Lotus Design director, said that the design of the Evora Carbon Concept car features "exotic, high tech materials' that have a "good synergy" with the image of the Lotus brand. Coco added that the car is expressive of its motorsport heritage and history of stylish sports cars for which Lotus are famous for.
Nevertheless, Coco said that the Carbon Concept won't be what will catch most viewers' attention and that eyes would most likely be on the Evora 414E Hybrid and its powertrain.
The 414E features a combination of two electric motors, a battery pack and a relatively small internal combustion engine. Each of the electric motors develop 152 kW (207 PS/204 hp) and 400 Nm of torque. An additional 35 kW (48 PS/47 hp) of power at 3,500 rpm is squeezed from the internal combustion engine.
