Lotus Evora 400 - pricing and specs confirmed - Lotus Evora 400 - performance and video

New Evora 400 is quicker around Hethel than the old Evora S - updated with pricing info

The Evora 400’s performance comes courtesy of the familiar 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine supplied by Toyota. Changes to the exhaust, induction, ’charger and ECU have resulted in a 55bhp increase to 400bhp (hence the name). Torque climbs to 302lb ft, from 295lb ft, and the 0-60mph time drops by 0.5sec to 4.1sec. Top speed is 186mph.

The chassis retains the standard double wishbone setup, but there are revised spring rates and new 19in (front) and 20in (rear) wheels that now wear Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. One of the biggest changes concerns the new car’s extruded aluminium tub, which now features slimmer and lower sills to help passenger entry and exit. Overall, the Evora 400 weighs 15kg less than outgoing Evora S.

Cabin

There wasn’t the budget or the time to redesign the Evora’s interior, but Lotus has managed to improve upon it. There is a new leather supplier offering improved quality, new seats, and increases in cabin space both front and rear – it’s 28cm wider across the rear seat thanks to a new rear bench. There’s also a new HVAC system for improved heating and ventilation.
