Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc, commented: “We couldn’t help ourselves, as well as many may have guessed what we were planning following our recent announcements. We wanted to make the Evora even better: lighter, faster as well as sharper, yet our team has exceeded our expectations. Lotus has distilled what makes the Evora so special into something in which’s even more focused. The result will be dynamically excellent as well as nothing short of superb.”
The Sport 410 builds on the excellent work undertaken from the development of the Evora 400, itself a massive enhancement over the first generation of Evora. However, far coming from a stripped-out special, the Evora Sport 410 retains excellent road manners, being refined as well as composed during everyday driving.
The significant drop in mass, as well as a power boost, means the Evora Sport 410 will be capable of lapping the company’s Hethel test track in 1 minute 28 seconds* – an impressive 3 seconds faster than the Evora 400. Reflecting what Lotus does best, the item demonstrates the company’s principle of ‘adding lightness’.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 will be the result of Lotus’ philosophy of continuous improvement. having a lower centre of gravity, as well as a kerb weight slashed to just 1,325 kg, the vehicle provides an impressive 309 hp/tonne.
In addition to boosting straight-line speed, the significant reduction in mass has allowed sharper, more agile as well as intuitive handling – with even greater accuracy as well as feel. Jean-Marc Gales added, “The Evora chassis was already the best from the business – the Evora Sport 410 takes the item to a whole fresh level”.
Complementing This specific will be a higher-output edition of the supercharged, 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine, developed through the Lotus 3-Eleven project which has beaten Nürburgring records. As a result, the vehicle boasts 410 hp at 7000 rpm as well as 410 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm.
The high-performance, carbon fibre components have played the single biggest role from the evolution of the Evora Sport 410. These include front splitter, roof panel, tailgate, as well as rear diffuser as well as race-derived sports seats as well as a revised front access panel. The one-piece carbon tailgate incorporates a louvered section, inspired by some of Lotus’ most-famous heritage versions, as well as together with carbon rear quarter-light panels help provide the vehicle having a sleeker, fastback-style trailing roofline. These alterations have also much better the vehicle’s aerodynamic downforce by 15% with no increase in drag.
the vehicle’s reduced kerb weight has allowed the recalibration of the suspension, with much better geometry as well as completely revised damping, as well as a ride height 5mm lower than the Evora 400. As a result, handling will be sharper, along with better Centeng as well as roll control, yet ride comfort as well as composure will be retained. Ultra light-weight, 10-spoke forged aluminium wheels, as well as optional Michelin Cup 2 tyres, complete the vehicle’s dynamic revisions.
As standard, the Evora Sport 410 comes with carbon fibre sports seats trimmed with Alcantara®, along with the steering wheel as well as centre console. An integrated touch-screen entertainment system can also be specified, including iPod® connectivity as well as Bluetooth® functionality.
As well as the standard paint selection, the fresh Evora can also be personalised through the recently launched Lotus Exclusive programme. Combining traditional British craftsmanship with modern design, the service inspires customers to spend time tailoring the character of their Lotus having a comprehensive array of options.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 will be limited to a global production run of one-hundred as well as fifty vehicles per year as well as will be available in all major markets coming from June 2016.
as well as a specific North American edition of the Evora Sport 410 will be announced later in 2016.
