Today in Geneva Switzerland, Lotus officially confirmed Evora production specifications ahead of the May 2009 launch in Europe. On sale as a 2010 model, the Evora is priced starting at £47,500 in the UK and €50.412 in the rest of Europe. Evora 2 + 2 models start at £49,875 and €53.361 respectively.

The first 450 cars will be built as a special “Evora Launch Edition”. The Launch Edition models will be built to a higher specification including the 2+2 seating configuration, Tech Pack, Premium Pack, Sport Pack, “Evora Launch Edition” interior plaque, silver cast alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlamps, Alpine Imprint premium sound, reversing camera, and electric folding mirrors. Ardent Red and British Racing Green are standard exterior colors on the Launch Edition, with all other paint colors available as a cost option.

The Tech Pack includes the Alpine Mobile Media Station (with DVD±R/±RW/MP3/AAC/WMA/DivX Playback) with upgraded stereo system, Alpine BlackBird portable satellite navigation, Bluetooth mobile phone connection, USB connection for MP3 players, full speed AUX input, cruise control with steering wheel mounted controls, rear parking sensors, and a tire pressure monitoring system.

Included in the Premium Pack is additional leather trimming covering the interior door panels, armrest, footwell side panels, centre console, and interior tailgate insert panel. Also included in the Premium Pack are premium floor mats, additional interior accent lighting, and dashboard Evora logo. The standard black adjustable Recaro sport seats may now also be specified in a different color including Oyster, Chestnut, Charcoal, or Paprika.

For those looking for more performance, the Sport Pack offers a sports diffuser, titanium exhaust, cross-drilled brake discs, black-painted brake calipers, and an engine oil cooler. Included as well is a switchable sport mode featuring increased yaw and slip traction control thresholds, enhanced throttle response, and a higher RPM limit.

Stand-alone options will include a sports-ratio 6-speed manual transmission.

The entire Evora development program from start of design to full launch will have been completed in just 27 months, which is unprecedentedly quick in the auto industry. By July 2009, Lotus targets a build figure of 34 Evoras each week.

Powered by a 276 hp 3.5 litre V6, the Evora charges from 0-60 MPH in just over 5 seconds. For details on Evora technical specifications, click here to read more. To see the official Evora exterior and interior color chart, click here.
