The new Lotus Evora 400 is Lotus’ flagship supercar. It is stylishly attractive, beautifully designed, and yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive new front cooling intakes to its more prominent rear, 5-blade airflow diffuser and new three-element tail spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built supercar. Yet, because it is a Lotus, the Evora 400 features ‘zero-lift’, although the aero package increases downforce by 50lbs (23kgs) at V-max, to make more efficient use of its immensely capable road manners.
Despite producing 400hp (406ps) from its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, larger brakes and a new interior the overall kerbweight of the Evora 400 has been reduced by 22kg over its forebear.
