Introducing the Lotus Evora 400

AUTOFOCUS: “….unlike most modern cars, when you put your foot down, it doesn’t feel like the electronics held a committee to discuss if what you asked of it was acceptable….”

THE DETROIT NEWS: “…Opting for a Lotus puts you in rare company….”

FORBES: “…some of the most visceral and exciting sports cars on the planet….”

CAR AND DRIVER: “it’s a car for people who want to be engaged deeply by what they drive”

MOTOR TREND: “…Its song at full boil is a pure baritone/tenor aria….”

OK CAR MAG: “…the steering has more feel than 80 percent of the cars on the road…”

JALOPNIK: “….A McLaren 570S could not do this. Nor could a Porsche 911 GT3…The soundtrack is so delightful that I roll down the windows, just so I can hear it even better….The car feels as though it is rotating around me, a perfectly balanced ballerina dancing through each corner..”

AUTOWEEK: “…The Evora 400 is a great car on the track and a great car off the track; it’s easy to get into…”

ROAD & TRACK: “…Lotus has built a car that should make any other performance car maker take notice and reconsider what it is that they do.…This is easily the best-balanced four-seat car I've ever operated on a racetrack…”

“…it’s the sort of modern car that Colin Chapman (no angel, himself) would want to wear the Lotus badge…”

“The sports cars you can still buy with a manual gearbox”

The Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the New Millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. The Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity so succinctly. Despite producing 400 hp (406 ps) from its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, with its comfortable cabin displaying many new features, the overall kerb weight of the Evora 400 has been reduced by 42 kg over its forebear. As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce at high speeds, simply enhances its supercar appeal.
