The most powerful production Lotus ever – the new Lotus Evora 400 is a superior machine to the previous model in every aspect.

Over two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine. Power has been increased from 345 hp (350 PS; 257.3 kW) to 400 hp (406 PS; 298.3 kW) at 7,000rpm. Torque has also been increased to 302 lbs ft (410 Nm) achieved between 3,500 to 6,500 rpm.

42 kg lighter than the previous model, with a completely new aluminium chassis and significantly revised lightweight composite body front and rear. The new Evora 400 is also ergonomically more refined, with easier cabin exit and entry, enhancing everyday usability.

Dynamically more capable lighter and faster, with revised spring and damper settings, a Limited Slip Differential (LSD) and a downforce figure of 32 kg (70 lbs) at 150 mph (242 km/h), the new Evora 400 is one of the quickest cars in class A to B and offers a more involving, sharper and more focused driving experience compared with the outgoing model.
