· Fastest and most powerful production Lotus ever
· Lighter and more efficient than before
· Legendary benchmark Lotus handling
· Unveiled today by Tun Dr Mahathir, Chairman of Lotus, Dato Harith, CEO of PROTON and Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus CEO.
Lotus Chief Executive Officer, Jean-Marc Gales states: “This is a big day for Lotus with the unveiling of the new Evora 400 and I am delighted with the fantastic reception that our super car was given today.”
About the Lotus Evora 400
The new Lotus Evora 400 is the latest pure and focused supercar from Lotus, combining high performance with the legendary Lotus benchmark handling. It is faster and dynamically more capable than the previous Lotus Evora leading to greater agility and a more involving drive.
Maximum speed is 186 mph (300 km/h) and acceleration 0-60 mph is just 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds). This enables the new Lotus Evora 400 to lap the challenging test track at the Lotus Headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk, a scintillating SIX seconds faster than the previous model.
Over two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and 410 Nm of torque. A new aluminium chassis incorporates a new interior and the lightweight composite body has changed significantly both front and rear.
Following the core values of the company, not only is the new Lotus Evora 400 faster than the previous model, it is also 22 kg lighter, achieved through careful and clever design and attention to detail. This weight reduction is even more impressive considering that the supercar has more power and a higher standard specification than before.
In describing the remit for the new Lotus Evora 400, Jean-Marc Gales, Chief Executive Officer for Group Lotus plc, states, “A requirement for all Lotus cars is to be a benchmark for handling, to be the quickest car from A to B and to provide the driver with a pure and involving driving experience. The Evora 400 is the fastest road-going Lotus that we have ever produced, possessing performance that can only be matched by cars costing significantly more. It delivers supercar looks allied to supercar performance.”
Jean-Marc Gales continues, “We have always said that to make a car better, you must make it faster and lighter. We have achieved this, of course, but we didn’t stop there, as the considerable number of changes in the interior, chassis, engine and body design have warranted emphatically, the title of a new Lotus Evora.
The new Lotus Evora 400 will enter production for European markets in the summer and deliveries will commence in August this year. North American markets will receive the Evora 400 as a 2016 model year presentation in the Autumn.
Combined production for all Lotus models, the Elise, Exige and Evora, will increase to 70 cars per week by September 2015 and an additional 150 highly skilled operators and craftsmen and women will be recruited in the next four months to accommodate this rise in production.

This man is a real hero and deserves the medals he won.
But he's donating them for the upkeep of the memorial.

My names Joshua and currently looking at buying an Exige S2 'supercharged' after selling my RS4 but struggling to find any garages with one local to have a little tester to see if its something i would like.
Was wondering if anyone local to Telford,shropshire would be interested in a meet up and chat and to actually see one in person before i start travelling all over the UK to find one?
Also i have spotted but its been up for a long time an Exige S2, turbo got a brilliant spec list but been for sale for ages (not a good sign). Any input on this?
