Lotus Evora 400 Pricing Announced
May 18, 2015 - 3:20 PM - by AutoGuide.com

The Lotus Evora 400 will cost $89,900 when it starts to arrive in the U.S. next year.

Production begins this summer, but the first models to leave the factory will be sold in Europe with other global markets to follow. Lotus revealed the Evora 400 for the first time during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March as the fastest and most powerful production Lotus car ever built. As the name suggests, this car is based on the Evora, but it turns a lap at the company’s test track six seconds quicker than the Evora S.

Top speed is limited to 186 MPH with the ability to run from 0-60 MPH in 4.1 seconds. Like other versions of the Evora, this car uses a mid-mounted supercharged V6, but in this case the company tuned to to make 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque. Lotus says that over 66 percent of the Evora 400 is new compared to previous models.

Both a manual and an automatic transmission are available. The manual comes standard with a limited-slip differential. While the company was busy tinkering beneath the surface, they also added a revised clutch disc and a low intertia flywheel to improve how the car shifts.

The price means that the Evora 400 is going to be less expensive, quicker and equally as powerful as a Porsche 911 Carrera S, which makes 400 HP, runs to 60 MPH in 4.3 seconds and starts at $98,900.

Why Wonít My Car Start?
May 05, 2015 - 10:13 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'

While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.

'Itís important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why itís important to first

Lotus Exige S Club Racer Lights Up UK Showrooms
Mar 20, 2015 - 10:15 AM - by AutoGuide.com

Thereís a new, lighter version of the Lotus Exige that you can pine over in America, but not own.

The coupe-only Exige S Club Racer has a curb weight of 2,560 lbs, marking a roughly 30-lb reduction over the Exige S. That in combination with a front splitter, rear spoiler and underbody aerodynamic enhancements offering almost 93 lbs of downforce make it a measurably improved product over the Exige S.

Top speed for the new model is just over 170 MPH with a 0-62 MPH sprint in four seconds flat courtesy of its supercharged 3.5-liter V6.

Lotus managed to save weight in the new derivative by using lightweight versions of key components including the battery, center console, doors and seats. Other changes include new drive modes that vary how much slip the traction control system will allow. There are three in total: drive, sport and race.

The new Lotus Exige S Club Racer is already available to customers in the U.K. for £56,900 ($84,100), which is a £2,400 premium over the normal Exige S.
