Like the archetypal hunter, the Evora 400 is finely tuned for a purpose. Sculptural forms create an athletic predatory stance, while muscular flanks and broad haunches express the agility and dynamism inherent to the car. The Lotus Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity and the 3.5-liter V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance of the Evora 400.
The 3.5-liter V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance of the Evora 400. Its induction system has been supplemented by a revised supercharger and a water-to-air chargecooler, that raises power to an outstanding 400 hp (406 ps). Select the first of its six, close-ratio, manual gears and the acceleration is viscerally exciting. The automatic version is even swifter off the mark, its performance sharpened by the Race setting in the Dynamic Performance Management system. The manual version is capable of hitting a top speed of 186 mph (300 kph). Experienced from within the purposeful, well-equipped and comfortable cabin, the Evora 400 demonstrates new levels of GT refinement and stability at high speed.
The Evora 400 is stylishly attractive, beautifully designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive new front cooling intakes, past the fascinating lateral graphics, to its more prominent rear, 5-blade airflow diffuser and new 3-element tail spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built supercar. Underpinning the Evora 400 supercar is a brand new, efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 70 years of Lotus racing and sportscar developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work more efficiently, to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging.
The Lotus Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. Despite producing 400 hp (406 ps) from its 3.5-liter supercharged V6 engine, with its comfortable cabin displaying many new features, the overall kerb weight of the Evora 400 has been kept under 1400kg. As a result, its thrilling power to weight ratio is combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce at high speeds.
