After we saw the leaked e-mail, Lotus unveiled today the Evora S and Evora IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) option. As expected, the Evora S is more powerful and now the 3.5-liter V6 engine delivers 350 PS (standard version delivers 280 PS) and 400 Nm of torque (295 lb ft).
The Evora S can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds (0-100 km/h in just 4.8 sec) and has a top speed of 172 mph (276 km/h).
Apparently, the Evora S is considered the next level of Evora experience, featuring a sport pack as standard. The sport pack offers a 'sport' button which allows the driver to control throttle response and activate the exhaust by-pass valve.
Also, the button raises the rev limit and changes the dynamic stability control settings resulting in a total experience change. Regarding the Evora IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift), this introduces an automatic transmission mated to the 3.5-liter V6 engine delivering 280 PS and 350 Nm of torque (258 lb ft).
The Evora IPS can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 5.5 seconds) and has a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). "We were proud of the Evora but we're even prouder of the Evora S, I feel like it does the true Lotus experience justice.
The really great thing is that as we move forward the standard Evora should also benefit from some of these developments." said Dany Bahar Lotus' Chief Executive Officer.
Lotus has revamped the Evora with a 350 PS 3.5-liter V6 engine to come up with an all-new and more powerful Evora S. Lotus CEO Dany Bahar took pride, saying that drivers will never realize what they are missing until they get to drive the Evora S.
Bahar said that aside from the core, the Evora S is far better than the Evora because it brings one's driving experience to a whole new level of fun. It has a better communication system and a fine-tuned suspension to enhance power and control.
He summarized, "It's an instinctual car." Bahar believes that the Evora S gives justice to what Lotus is really committed to. He claimed, "We were proud of the Evora but we're even prouder of the Evora S." The Evora S is equipped with a standard sports pack that features a "sport" button, allowing drivers to control throttle response and activate the exhaust bypass valve.
Moreover, it increases the instantaneous rev limit and even the dynamic stability control has been modified. For better cooling, the Evora S has cross-drilled brakes. A little heads up for those who buy the belief that "you can tell the men from the boys by the size of their toys.”
The external emotion of the Evora S had totally been enhanced with a new active exhaust, allowing the vehicle to sound as dramatic as it feels at the push of a button. Lotus Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) Andreas Prillmann expressed that aside from being a "natural progression", the Evora S also signifies what people must expect from Lotus in the coming years. It is a clear expression of how Lotus values performance, style, and comfort without compromising one for the other.
