Lotus Evora GTE Swizz Beatz edition

Lotus's rapping buddy Swizz Beatz pulls the wraps off his special edition, chrome red Evora GTE

The first results of Lotus’s curious partnership with music producer Swizz Beatz have seen the light of day. The Evora GTE Swizz Beatz edition was revealed via a blaze of rapping by Swizz himself and fresh out of jail T.I. Swizz has had no influence of the mechanicals of the GTE, a hardcore road-racer version of the Evora, which launches in 2012. That means it gets a tuned up, 438bhp version of the Evora’s 3.5-litre V6 engine while weighing 105kg less than the standard car. It should be enough to endow it with a sub-4.5sec 0-60mph sprint and a top speed of around 180mph. This special edition (of a car that already was already limited) makes do with just a lick of paint, but an eye-searing one at that; Swizz has picked a red chrome finish to compliment the Evora GTE’s muscular, racecar-inspired bodykit. Click to see more Evora GTE pictures and see a video of the Swizz Beatz edition’s less than conventional unveil below…
