Lotus Targets Nurburgring Record With 2-Eleven Successor
Feb 26, 2015 - 8:25 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
Lotus wants to have the fastest road car around the Nürburgring.

The British automaker’s new head, Jean-Marc Gales, made the claim recently during an interview with Top Gear, saying that a successor to the 2-Eleven is less than two years away sporting around 400 hp while weighing just under 2,000 lbs.

Based off the new Evora chassis, the original 2-Eleven was built from an Elise/Exige base weighing just 1,643 lbs and making 250 hp from a supercharged 1.8-liter 4-cylinder.

The new 2-Eleven will also be the most expensive Lotus available, but Gales sounds confident that it’ll set a record at the ‘Ring.

Evora 400 is Fastest, Most Powerful Production Lotus Yet
Feb 18, 2015 - 10:39 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
Lotus has revealed its fastest and most powerful production model ever.

The new Lotus Evora 400 is powered by a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 engine churning 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque, which is a big improvement over the previous model’s 345 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. According to the British automaker, the additional performance comes courtesy of a new supercharger as well as the addition of a new water-to-air intercooler and engine management system. With those figures, Lotus claims the Evora 400 has a top speed of 186 mph and is able to do the 0-60 MPH sprint in just 4.1 seconds. More importantly, other enhancements allow the Evora 400 to lap the Lotus test track six seconds quicker than the outgoing model.

While the overall shape of the Lotus Evora 400 is reminiscent of the current model, the company says that over two-thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, allowing it to be almost 49 lbs lighter.

Braking performance has also been enhanced with more powerful, two-piece, cross-drilled and ventilated brake discs while forged lightweight aluminum wheels (19 inches in the front and 20 inches in the rear) will be standard, paired to Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

As for the exterior, the Lotus Evora 400 has a much more aggressive design while the length of the sports car has been increased by 1.4 inches to a total of 173 inches. The new Lotus Evora 400 will enter production for European markets this summer with deliveries beginning in August. It will also be heading to the U.S. as a 2016 model

Facelifted 2016 Lotus Evora Spotted in Spy Photos
Feb 12, 2015 - 10:00 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Quote:
Lotus is looking to revamp its Evora sports car in time for the Geneva Motor Show and we have the first look at it right here, thanks to our sneaky spy photographers.

The changes to the model may be subtle as the car company is going through some financial difficulty, but we can clearly see some important modifications to the lightweight sports car. It looks like the front bumper is getting a new look, while the side-sills have been redesigned, likely in a way to improve entry and exit of the vehicle.

The lights also have a revised design, but under all that sheetmetal you can expect a lighter vehicle, with more power. The Toyota sourced V6 engine is still expected to be put to use, but it will be retuned to make more power.

Expect all the details to be cleared up and shared at the Geneva Motor Show.
