Available as both a 2+0 or 2+2, with a choice of 6-speed manual or paddleshift automatic transmissions, a wide range of options allows you to specify your car for enhanced GT comfort or greater track focus. A race suspension package is available, from your local dealer, featuring Öhlins TTX 2-Way Adjustable Dampers, transforming the car for hard track use. Optional ‘J’ hook brake discs improve the initial brake response and pad de-glazing.
The stunning new Evora GT takes the Evora’s unique attributes to spectacular new heights. Sports car agility, precision and response meets GT car refinement and comfort like never before.
Whatever the road throws at you, whether it’s a sweeping curve, challenging hairpin or undulating straight, the Evora demonstrates complete mastery over them all. An elegant, low-drag, fastback design combines fluid lines and a swept-forward cabin with an athletic stance and distinctive presence. The meticulously weighted, hydraulic power steering remains an industry benchmark. A tactile delight, it displays total fluency on the road, transmitting authentic feedback directly to the driver while filtering out unwanted noise, keeping you uniquely connected to the road.
For the interior, the dashboard, door panels, transmission tunnel and centre console are all trimmed in black Alcantara®, complemented by contrast twin colour stitching (bespoke leather is an option).
The lightweight magnesium steering wheel is clad in leather and Alcantara®, the instrument binnacle cover is carbon fibre, as are the backs of the Sparco race seats. An integrated 7” touch-screen infotainment system with AppleCarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth® functionality, satellite navigation and reversing camera is also standard.
Every new Lotus Evora GT can be personalised through the increasingly popular Lotus Exclusive programme. Developed by the Lotus Design team to inspire customers, it combines traditional British craftsmanship with the best of modern design, and allows owners to tailor vehicles to their personal taste. Since its introduction last year, roughly a third of all new Lotus cars now undergo some form of customisation.
Drive With a Finer Degree of Control
In addition to Lotus’ slick, six-speed manual gearbox with a Torsen type limited slip differential (LSD), the Evora GT is also available with an automatic transmission option. Quick shifting through the gears via lightweight aluminium paddles mounted to the steering wheel contributes to a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds.
The new Evora GT features four driver selectable ESP modes – selected via a dashboard switches. ‘Drive’, ‘Sport’, ‘Race’ and ‘Off’. Sport and Race settings increase throttle response, respectively increasing traction slip - allowing the driver a finer degree of control before intervention.
The Evora GT is powered by a specially calibrated and tuned higher-output version of Lotus’ supercharged, 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine with integrated water-to-air charge cooler, producing 422 PS (416 bhp) at 7000 rpm and 317 lb-ft (430 Nm) of torque from 3500 rpm to give a 0-60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds. The automatic option has 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) and returns a similar acceleration time.
