Lotus Evora 400 unveiled as the most powerful production Lotus ever

Lotus unveiled the new updated 2015 Evora 400 ahead of next month’s Geneva debut.

Called the “fastest and most powerful production Lotus ever,” the Evora 400 has a new front bumper with larger air intakes, LED daytime running lights, ventilated rear bumper, a new sporty diffuser, a “three-element” rear wing, restyled mirrors and 19- / 20-inch lightweight forged aluminium wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres.

Under the skin changes include redesigned aluminium chassis and retuned suspension beefier brakes. Compared to the outgoing model, the new model weighs 22 gk less.

The changes inside are much bigger that outside and include a new dashboard, a revised centre console, improved instrument cluster and switchgear, new front seats, higher quality materials, forged magnesium steering wheel with a red position stripe and a new standard upgraded infotainment system.

Power continues to come from the supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine that as the name suggests produces now 400bhp and 302 lb-ft of torque, linked to an improved six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic gearbox.

0-62 mph comes now in 4.2 seconds and the top speed is 186 mph.

According to Lotus the Evora 400 lapped the Hethel test track six seconds faster than its predecessor.

Production will start this summer with first European deliveries slated for August.
