Evora S - Pure performance at its finest.
The Evora S blends the sublime handling attributes of the Lotus Evora with the surging linear power of a supercharged V6 engine. Delivering even more attitude, the forced induction power plant delivers 345 hp and 295 lbft of torque. There’s no appreciable weight gain: at 1,437 kg the Evora S is still lightweight, muscling from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, powering to its 178 mph maximum.
It’s a logical progression. Forced induction brings instantaneous power delivery. It drives with an awe-inspiring urgency and vigour yet the remarkable Lotus chassis takes power and control in its stride.
Visual differences include an aggressive rear diffuser, black wing mirror caps and rear light surrounds, with a new active exhaust system providing a dramatic aural soundtrack.
With the Sport Pack as standard, the Evora S changes personality again. Increase throttle response, raise the rev limit and alter the Lotus DPM settings at the touch of a button for a heightened dynamic experience. This is pure Evora performance at its finest.
Evolved On Track
In race form, the Evora GT4 encapsulates all of Lotus’ core values and technical expertise. The ultimate Evora, it’s a proven winner, and it’s long-distance derivative, the Evora GTE, has shown its pace in the 2011 Le Mans 24-Hours.
The road-going version has directly benefited from the Evora’s racing pedigree. Its power and agility are complemented by race proven AP Racing brakes. Only the slightest pedal pressure is required to reduce the Evora’s momentum.
Whether it’s an occasional track day or a full-on assault in endurance racing with a GT4, the Evora’s track origins are plain to see. As swathes of twisting tarmac disappear into the distance, this Lotus sports car makes light work of the road ahead. Focused driving is effortless thanks to the Evora’s impressive grip, tucking the nose into apexes with precision and poise.
It’s better to travel than to arrive. Which is why the Evora interior combines comfort with function, blending sophisticated, high quality materials with precise attention to detail and superb craftsmanship. Machined aluminium features along with supple, hand trimmed and twin stitched leather. Sculpted, figure hugging Recaro seats leave nothing to distract you from the finer points of driving.
A Lotus command centre with auxiliary trip computer and an immobiliser with remote activated alarm are fitted as standard. The option list includes contemporary features such as an advanced touchscreen multi-media system with iPod® and MP3 connectivity and a reversing camera.
Other available options include electric power-fold mirrors, heated seats, and the practical 2+2 rear seat, which include ISOFIX® mountings for rear child seats, because even sports car enthusiasts have families.
2+0 & 2+2 OPTIONS
The 2+0 configuration offers more than enough storage behind the driver and passenger seats for a healthy dose of retail therapy. Alternatively, the optional 2+2 configuration ensures that even the school run is an exciting drive.
