The Evora 400 Exudes the Lotus Spirit
NY Lotus Evora | New York Luxury Car Dealer
The Lotus Evora is now styled in two models, the 400 and the GT4. Everything about the Lotus Evora says speed, from the smooth aerodynamic lines to the zero lift plus added downforce design to keep the Evora planted firmly on the road or track. The 400 uses a 24-valve 3.5 liter supercharged V-6 engine developing 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque that provides a top speed of 186 mph. The GT4 utilizes a purpose-built racing engine, an optimized 3.5 liter V-6 developing 356 hp and 328 lb-ft of torque.
How does Lotus create such performance with only a V-6 engine? In two words, aluminum and composites. The lightweight extruded aluminum chassis is strong yet minimizes curb weight. The engine block is all aluminum. Even the wheels are ultra-lightweight alloy. The body panels and rear diffuser are composite. Even the weight of the driver’s footrest has been considered to keep the total vehicle weight to a minimum.
Although you will feel part of racing’s heritage, owning an Evora doesn’t mean you have to drive a stripped-down racing car. The Evora 400 uses a standard 2+2 seating arrangement, with air conditioning and heated seats. The lightweight sports seats come in three trim levels; standard, leather, and Alcantara®. There is an engine start button versus having to have a key ready. The Evora 400 has a reverse camera and rear sensors to assist in parking. Door handles and the steering wheel are trimmed in leather. There is a custom door sill etched with the Lotus emblem. A premium carpet and dark headliner round out the interior design. Oh, don’t forget the 5-speaker premium sound system with integrated subwoofer.
The sweeping lines, aerodynamic engineering, and fine finish make the Lotus Evora look fast while sitting still. With Lotus genetics and history, you know it will get even better when it starts moving. And oh my, will it move.
