New Evora 400 Is The Most Powerful Lotus Ever

By

For its 60-odd years of history, Lotus has built many good and fast machines. But the turn for the new leader came.

The price for Evora S is 100 thousand dollars. We believe that the Evora 400 will be a little more expensive. The competitors recorded the Cayman GT4, which is slightly weaker, but also slightly cheaper.

The company plans to produce up to 70 such machines a week. Visually new Evora 400 from Evora S can be distinguished by new running lights and other rear wing.

Power Numbers

After you accelerate to “hundred” in 4.1 seconds, you will be able to gain the maximum speed of 298 km / h on such a new rocket. This became possible thanks to a 3.5-liter V-shaped six with a supercharger, which produces 400 horsepower and 410 Nm torque.

The same engine is installed on the Lotus Evora S, but unlike the latter, the Evora 400 has 55 hp more. Addition is obtained with the help of other superchargers, the cooling system of the supercharger, the exhaust, and also by recycling the engine management system.

Weight Reduction

The car became lighter. Put the lighter seats and other engine mounts, which saved 22 kilograms. From the younger sister, the new Evora features a front splitter and a three-element rear wing.

Such improvements, plus a more powerful engine, allowed to pass the circle on the factory test track Lotus-a 6 seconds faster.

Tracking control received three settings: comfortable, sporty and racing. Why not combine the last two into one? Or add a fourth – “farewell, spine”? The answer, obviously, is for marketers.

In the “base” the car will receive a six-speed manual gearbox or a six-speed automatic – on special request.

More Comfort Inside

The firm promised more comfort inside the car. For example, the chassis was changed so that it was easier to enter and exit the car. And the space behind is added. But even in this case, you hardly want to be there.
