Lotus Evora 400 Models and Evora 400 History
A mid-engined performance vehicle manufactured by famous British sports car make Lotus, the Evora harnessed power and handling to create a rewarding driving experience. The 2010 introduction of the Evora was a rare instance where Lotus offered a 2+2 passenger vehicle for the United States market (an option of a true 2-passenger interior was also incorporated on the sports car). After a brief absence in the United States road car market between 2014 and 2017, the Lotus sports car brand made a triumphant return an updated version of the Evora. Resembling the previous version of the sport coupe, the Lotus Evora 400 is actually a heavily revised vehicle. The highlight of the new Evora 400 model is a modified 3.5-liter V-6 engine operating with an Edelbrock supercharger. Generating 400 horsepower, the new engine produces 55 horsepower more than the previously available Evora S model. A re-engineered frame weighing 93 pounds less than its predecessor, the Lotus Evora 400's structure maintains high torsional rigidity. Aerodynamics has also been tweaked on the updated Evora delivering greater downforce and cooling. Available with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the 2017 Evora 400 responsiveness is exhibited with 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration in as little as 4.1 seconds. The top speed of the manual-equipped Lotus Evora 400 is 186 miles per hour.
