2017 Lotus Evora Sport 410

2017-lotus-evora-sport-410-front-angle-1The New 2017 Lotus Evora Sport 410 the result of thousands of hours’ development by Lotus, across every aspect of the car, formidable, and designed to deliver both on track and on the road.

In a deliberate nod to the Esprit GT3, the Evora’s interior has subtle design cues, such as the optional colour coded interior components, which reference the car’s lineage. Weight saving measures include attractive one-piece door trim panels finished in Alcantara® with contrast stitching, the deletion of door arm rests and stowage pockets, the relocation of tailgate and fuel filler release buttons and the removal of speakers – if an entertainment system is not specified.

Only available in a 2+0 configuration, the Evora Sport 410’s carbon fibre sports seats are trimmed with Alcantara® as standard, along with the steering wheel, lower dashboard, transmission tunnel and centre console. An integrated touch-screen entertainment system can also be specified, including iPod® connectivity and Bluetooth® functionality.

2017-lotus-evora-sport-410-rear-angle-12017 Lotus Evora Sport 410 Exterior. From the mass of carbon fibre components covering the car from nose to tail as standard, including a revolutionary one-piece tailgate, to the recalibrated and tuned supercharged V6 engine – every inch has been assessed to provide unrivalled performance.

The car’s vastly improved aerodynamic configuration delivers an unparalleled level of handing and high-speed stability, and the addition of performance orientated wheels, tyres and critical parts, including the new titanium exhaust, ensures that it draws on Colin Chapman’s obsession with simplifying, and adding lightness. However, far from a stripped-out track special, the new model retains excellent road manners, remaining refined and composed on B-roads.

The car’s dry weight of just 1,270 kg (1,280 kg without the optional titanium exhaust) results in sharper and more intuitive handling. Lowering the centre of gravity, it has allowed for the recalibration of the suspension – with an improved geometry and revised setup. The re-valved dampers provide an increase in compression and rebound, while the effective rise in spring rate and a reduction in ride height by 5mm provide better body and roll control, yet ride comfort and composure are retained.

Utilising an integrated water-to-air charge cooler, it’s undergone thousands of hours of development and testing, including performance evaluation at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. Tipping the car well over the 300 hp/tonne benchmark, at 320 hp/tonne it’s a vital contribution to the Evora’s credentials, with the addition of the titanium exhaust silencer improving this figure further still.
