accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and reaching a maximum speed of 186 mph, the lotus ‘evora 400’ supercar is the british company’s fastest and most powerful production model to date. its supercharged, mid-mounted 3.5-liter V6 engine which produces 400 hp and 410 Nm of torque, makes its high performance possible. combining this with the manufacturer’s recognized handling and lightweight composite body, the vehicle offers a fast and dynamic ride with great agility.

marc gales, chief executive officer for group lotus plc, states, ‘a requirement for all lotus cars is to be a benchmark for handling, to be the quickest car from A to B and to provide the driver with a pure and involving driving experience. the evora 400 is the fastest road-going lotus that we have ever produced, possessing performance that can only be matched by cars costing significantly more. it delivers supercar looks allied to supercar performance.’

jean-marc gales continues, ‘we have always said that to make a car better, you must make it faster and lighter. we have achieved this, of course, but we didn’t stop there, as the considerable number of changes in the interior, chassis, engine and body design have warranted emphatically, the title of a new lotus evora.’

with an overall more aggressive road-stance than the previous version, the lotus ‘evora 400’ has an exterior design that matches its performance. at the front, the body features large cooling apertures that are complemented by the daytime running lamps, and boasts a three-element wing at the rear. inside, the the interior has been designed to be elegant and functional, whilst being both lightweight and high quality. its materials of alcantara or scottish leather, reflects the car’s hand-craftsmanship with an active yet comfortable cabin environment.

  • If it’s not electric it’s not a supercar. You wouldn’t celebrate trains with steam engines either would you?

    Tad Chef says:
  • Supercars are about speed above all else, and this is faster than the electric cars out there now.
    And as far as trains go, I think steam trains are the most celebrated, like old carbureted cars.

    j_c says:
  • The interior is hardly what most people would call elegant and the functionality of the instruments is questionable.

    Ron Smith says:
  • Yes; another note –
    The interior looks like it was yanked out of a 30 year old auto and ‘custom’ fitted to this auto.
    Bad form indeed. The interior does not go with the car in the least.
