Lotus has just released a long list of details on the upcoming Evora mid-engine 2+2 sportscar, with all the standard equipment and option packs available. This list is technically for Euro-spec models, however, the release clearly states, (and Lotus Cars USA PR Boss Kevin Smith confirmed) that the U.S.-spec model will be very close.
Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 276hp at 6400 rpm and 252 ft-lbs of torque at 4700 rpm, the Evora will hit 60 mph in just five seconds and go on to a top speed of 160 mph. Fuel economy is rated at 12.4 and 6.5 liters/100 km (city/highway) - which works out to 19/36 mpg. The combined rating is 8.7 liters/100 km or 27 mpg.
Standard equipment includes 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels with 225/40/18 and 255/35/19 tires. Cast wheels will be standard with forged models optional.
The brakes will be AP racing four-piston calipers with front 13.8-inch rotors and rear 13.1-inch rotors. ABS and electronic brake distribution will also be standard.
