Ladies and gentlemen, this is the Lotus Evora 400, company’s fastest and more powerful vehicle ever produced. Set to debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the vehicle arrives with an updated design that underlines the power delivered by the V6 engine. As you can see, there is a new front bumper that features larger air intakes, new LED daytime running lights, restyled mirrors, a new rear air diffuser with integrated central exhaust tailpipe, but also a new rear spoiler.
Furthermore, there is a new set of lightweight forged aluminum wheels (19-inch front / 20-inch rear) wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The interior was updated too and shows a new dash, redesigned centre console and new instrument cluster, as well as new front seats and a forged magnesium steering wheel.
Under the hood, there is a 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine delivering 400 hp (298 kW) and 410 Nm (302 lb-ft) of torque. The engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but as an option Lotus offers a six-speed automatic gearbox.
According to the company, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 4.2 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds), while top speed is 300 km/h or 186 mph. Thanks to the redesigned aluminum chassis, the new Lotus Evora 400 is 22 kg (48 lbs) lighter than the standard model.
In addition, the vehicle arrives with a retuned suspension, more powerful brakes and Limited Slip Differential (LSD) offered as standard on models equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.
