New 2016 Lotus Evora 400 Price, Release Date, Specs

By

Hold on to your socks, because the Lotus Evora is about to make its return to the U.S. market in 2016!

This model is reported to be the fastest and most powerful edition ever made, and is sure to get Supercar lovers excited coast to coast. Most of the major changes take place under the hood, as the British manufacturers have improved the brakes, gave the suspension an upgrade, and installed a new rear subframe and engine mounts.

The 2016 Evora body is also completely made of aluminum which has lowered its total weight by about 49 pounds. They’ve even added some significant alterations to the design and ergonomics, rounding out what they claim to be “a completely new car.”

New Evora Release Date

Just as with the pricing figures above, it’s hard to give an exact date for the release of the new 2016 Evora at this time. But most people in the industry expect it to hit American shores sometime in December. This sounds about right, but pre-orders are being taken already at many dealers in United States.

With all of that added power under the hood, the new 2016 Evora can go from 0 mph to 60 in 4.1 seconds!

The most probable rivals of the new Lotus are Porsche Cayman S, Audi R8, upcoming Acura NSX.

Also, the tax obligation should be relaxed a bit in several markets due to a decrease in Carbon Dioxide discharge from the exhaust. More information will be released later, but make no mistake, this is certainly a finely crafted and highly tuned vehicle.
