Lotus’ famous lightweight Laboratory has been hard at work cutting the weight of the Evora 400 by a massive 70kg. With a host of high-performance carbon fibre components as standard, and sharing the 410 hp supercharged engine with the track-bred 3-Eleven, the new Lotus Evora Sport 410 clocks 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 186mph.
From a drastically simplified carbon fibre tailgate (combining five separate elements into one) down to the new lighter weight door inner panel and the liberal addition of carbon fibre across the entire car, the Sport 410 builds on the excellent work undertaken in the development of the Evora 400. However, far from a stripped-out special, the Evora Sport
410 retains excellent road manners, proving refined and composed during everyday driving.
The car boasts 410 hp at 7000 rpm and 410 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm; with a kerb weight lashed to just 1,325 kg**, the car provides an impressive 309 hp/tonne**, and builds on the chievements of the excellent Evora 400.
The high-performance, carbon fibre components have played the single biggest role in the volution of the Evora Sport 410. These include front splitter, roof panel, tailgate, and rear iffuser as well as race-derived sports seats and a revised front access panel. The onepiece arbon tailgate incorporates a louvered section, which together with a carbon fibre
panel replacing the glass of the rear quarter-light help provide the car with a sleeker, astback-style trailing roofline.
The car’s reduced kerb weight has allowed the recalibration of the suspension, with mproved geometry and completely revised damping, as well as a ride height 5mm lower han the Evora 400. As a result, handling is sharper, along with better body and roll control, et ride comfort and composure is retained. Ultra light-weight, 10-spoke forged aluminium
wheels, and optional Michelin Cup 2 tyres, complete the car’s dynamic revisions.
Appealing to purists, the Evora Sport 410’s manual gearbox features a low inertia flywheel,to help ensure swift changes, while a Torsen-type limited slip differential (LSD) gives better traction, and faster exit speeds when cornering. Available as an option, the automatic transmission offers gear selection via lightweight aluminium paddles mounted to the steering
The new Evora Sport 410 also features Lotus’ Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) which, selected via a dashboard switch, provides ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings. Proportionally increasing throttle response, lowering traction slip thresholds and removing understeer recognition, it allows enhanced control before the system intervenes.
As standard, the Evora Sport 410 comes with carbon fibre sports seats trimmed with Alcantara®, along with the steering wheel, door trims and centre console. An integrated touch-screen entertainment system can also be specified, including iPod® & Bluetooth® connectivity.
As well as the standard paint selection, the new Evora can also be personalised through the recently launched Lotus Exclusive programme. Combining traditional British craftsmanship with modern design, the service inspires customers to spend time tailoring the character of their Lotus with a comprehensive array of options.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 will be limited to a global production run of one-hundred and fifty vehicles per year and will be available in all major markets from June 2016. A specific North American version of the Evora Sport 410 will be announced later in 2016. Those wishing to register their interest in the new Lotus Evora Sport 410 should contact
