I'm guessing it doesn't come with the Euro spec one piece seats?

"Only" 400 h.p. according to article. Is that a misprint?

That looks fantastic. I really prefer the rear ducktail on this one.

I believe to ease US certification process that they are only using the US 400 Tune, I notice they rested torque at a lower value to 410 NM, I guess to give us something that relates to the engine. While I have already placed an order today, I'm not concerned about the power discrepancy .. car will be headed to BOE to start off where where we left my Series 1 GP Edition, that was 363 wHP, or roughly 425 bHP

2012 Evora S GP Edition 1st of 14
BOE prototype; (Headers & Cera. Cat, CAI, Tune), Larini Sport Exhaust, LMS Alloy Sump. Stage 3 +Cams coming this summer ***UPDATE*** I may be suspending this work pending determination of future of the car. If it goes, the development work will continue on its replacement.

2017 Evora Sport 410 GP Edition 1st of 5, on order. BOE updates will be forthcoming.

I agree, I really cannot swallow the 400's spoiler, plus this model generates 2x the downforce over the 400 or roughly 4 x over the Series 1.

The article isn't completely clear, but it seems as though, in lieu of the higher horsepower engine available outside the US, the 410 US model comes with the carbon fiber bits already included, so the base price is $104,200 (versus $91,900). The weight reduction of 60 Kg allows the US version to equal the performance of the standard 410. However, the base price of the GP edition is $110,000, and it's not clear what the additional $5,800 gets you, if the carbon fiber parts are already included. However, it also says this: "Tipping the scales at just 3,020 lbs (1,370kg), or 2,910 lbs (1,320 kg) with no fuel and lightweight options selected, the Evora Sport 410 for North America has set the benchmark through thorough attention to detail" which seems to suggest that you have to pick the lightweight options, which would obviously increase the price further. Thus, I think as suggested, the 410 US is the 400 with the lightweight parts?

Yes, I think the rear hatch and ducktail look nice.

This is great news for us, and a smart move for Lotus not to forsake the largest automobile market in the world.
At one time I had a 240S and an S260 simultaneously, I reluctantly sold the redundant 240, now I can have an Evora 400/410 for my daily driver and keep the S260 from logging more commuter miles. As Julian73 said above we can alway get more HP out of the stock Lotus tuned Toyota mill.

The Evora 400 is very comfortable, I drove our demo up to an event in Asheville, NC a couple of weeks ago.

In another article on the 410 Federal version, it says the shocks and spring rates were tweaked to adjust to the lighter weight, providing even sharper turn in and quicker response.

I actually liked that split rear spoiler, a unique look. But hard to argue with downforce, even if I would never actually use or need it.

I also like being able to see the motor from outside, would like to see its looks muscled up a bit and simplified, less messy. But then I was looking at some 458s and 488s just today. What a view those red cars offer.

Anyone can make something complicated. It takes genius to make it simple. Einstein.
