Lotus has officially pulled the wraps off its most powerful ever road car created, the Evora 400, as the model in question is getting ready to go on sale this summer.
The brand new Lotus Evora 400 has received LED daytime running lights, larger air intakes in the new front bumper, a sportier diffuser at the rear, ventilated rear bumper, a 3-element rear wing, different side mirrors and 19- / 20-inch lightweight forged aluminum wheels, covered in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, which will be contributing to the looks of the sports car.
The cabin of the model has been significantly changed and if the exterior design looks instantly recognizable, here we can spot the new dashboard, the improved instrument cluster, the revised center console, the higher quality materials, the new front seats, the red position stripe for the forge magnesium steering wheel, upgraded infotainment system, improved switchgear and several other tweaks.
The most important part of the Lotus Evora 400 is found under its hood where the 3.5 liter V6 supercharged engine is resting. This is capable of producing no less than 400 HP (298 kW) and a peak torque of 410 Nm (302 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission, which have been improved. From 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), the Evora 400 needs just 4.1 seconds and from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the sprint takes 4.2 seconds. Top speed stands at 300 km/h (186 mph). The model will go into production this summer and European deliveries will begin in August.
