The British automaker has decided to celebrate its half-century anniversary of production at the Hethel factory in style, with the introduction of the Evora 400 Exclusive Edition.
The model is also interesting because the livery was design with the assistance of the brand’s fans, who took to Facebook and Twitter to showcase their chosen selections. This limited edition series will pack a blue exterior base hue with orange and white body stripes. According to Lotus this harkens back to its iconic racing color scheme used in the 1960s. Besides this modern-looking retro throwback paint job, the Evora 400 Exclusive edition also has black alloy wheels and a reworked high-performance braking system with red calipers.
There’s a bi-tone styling scheme in the cockpit as well, with the drivers finding black leather seats with orange contrast stitching. There’s also an automatic climate control system, the 2+2 seating arrangement, and even an infotainment system with GPS navigation. The Evora 400 Exclusive will come with the same powertrain as in the Evora 400 – a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with 400 horsepower and 302 pound-feet of torque. The coupe will sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 4.1 seconds before reaching a maximum speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales thinks this limited series – with just 10 units produced – will “quickly become very desirable.” There are still no details about the pricing scheme or market availability.
