The regular Lotus Evora 400 tips the scales at just 3,075 pounds (1,395 kilograms), but the British automaker is offering for its European clients a diet-prone Carbon Pack.
The new Carbon Pack is not the only goodie – there’s also a lithium-ion battery, and a titanium exhaust. All these options installed, and the coupe’s weight goes down a notch to 2,983 pounds (1,353 kg). More importantly, the upgrades are actually available for every market – meaning even US customers can dip their toes in these fat-burning shenanigans. The Carbon Pack comes with lightweight body parts from the Lotus Evora Sport 410 that will save 11 pounds (5kg). the new pieces come in lieu of the front splitter, roof, center portion of the rear wing, part of the rear diffuser, mirror caps, and the front access panel. The design is enlightened by the titanium exhaust’s single trapezoidal exit.
The Carbon Pack will go for $10,000 in the U.S, 9,000 euros in Germany, and 6,500 pounds in the U.K. The exquisite titanium exhaust is another $8,000, 7,000 euros, or 5,500 pounds. And the lithium-ion battery can be had for $1,690, 1,890 euros, or 1,350 pounds. Free of charge the owner can go about its business without the rear seats or the air conditioning system. There’s also the option of adding a little commodity – the fitting of a useful cup holder and change tray, weighing only 120 grams.
