Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group
Lotus plc stated ,“We know that the Lotus Evora 400 can deliver the performance
of a car costing significantly more and we are conscious that the pricing is
highly competitive. Yet, the greatest merit which no other sports car or
supercar can deliver is a peerless Lotus driving experience.”
He also added that the Evora
400 is the fastest road-going Lotus that his company has ever produced. “It
delivers supercar looks allied to supercar performance and our global dealer
network of 179 dealers which will grow to 200 by the end of the year is excited
to be able to deliver this high performing benchmark handling supercar to the

The new Lotus Evora 400 laps
the Lotus test track at Hethel six seconds faster than the previous Evora S in
a time of 1 minute 32 seconds. Combining high performance with the legendary
Lotus benchmark handling, it is faster and dynamically more capable than the
previous Lotus Evora leading to greater agility and a more involving drive.
The maximum speed of the car
is 300 km/h and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. Over 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 2015, will enter production for
European markets in the summer and deliveries will commence in August this
year. North American markets will receive the Evora 400 as a 2016 model year in
December, with China taking first deliveries in early 2016.
