- Hethel lap time of 1:32 (six seconds faster than previous Evora S)
- Increased power, reduced weight and improved handling contribute to faster lap time
Having stated that the new Evora 400 would exceed expectations, Lotus has now validated the claim. Early tests, carried
out by Gavan Kershaw, Technical Manager for Lotus Motorsport, allowed Lotus to boast of a six seconds per lap advantage at
Hethel. This validation drive of a standard road specification prototype Evora 400, running on road tyres and with
standard road suspension confirms the initial suggestion.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc stated: “Internally, we all knew that the Evora 400 would be capable of
exceeding expectations. Our initial pre-production tests provided immense confidence and a six seconds lap time advantage
at Hethel. The previous best time achieved in the Evora S model was 1 minute 38 seconds; the new lap time set by Gavan is
1 minute 32 seconds.”

“The extra 55hp in conjunction with the 22 kg weight reduction and the tremendous traction from the Limited Slip
Differential (LSD) lead to benchmark handling. We are delighted that our customers will soon feel the benefits, when the
first examples are delivered in August of this year.”
The new Lotus Evora 400 is the latest pure and focused sports car from Lotus, combining high performance with the
traditional Lotus handling. It is faster and dynamically more capable than the previous Lotus Evora leading to greater
agility and a more involving drive.
Maximum race track speed is 300 km/h and acceleration 0-100 km/h is potentially possible in 4.2 seconds. More than
two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine
producing 400 horsepower and 410 Nm of torque. A new aluminium chassis incorporates a new interior and the lightweight
composite body has changed significantly both front and rear.
The new Evora 400, which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March will enter production for European markets in
the northern summer and European deliveries will commence in August this year.
The Evora 400 will arrive in Australia in early 2016. Local prices and specification will be announced at this time.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
