Our friends at DriveWithDave spent an afternoon with the new Lotus Evora 400, the fastest Lotus road car ever. A supercharged 3.5 liter V6 packs 400 horses, and the car sprints from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds with a 186 mph top end. Plus, it’s got an incredible exhaust note.
The Elise Sprint’s carbon fiber parts help shave off over 90 lb. of weight compared to the standard model, giving it a dry weight of just 1759 lb. It also borrows the Exige Sport 350’s open-gate gearbox. Available in 1.6L 134 hp or a supercharged 1.8L 217 hp engine. Sadly, it’s not US-bound.
The fastest ever variant of the featherweight sports coupe packs a 375 hp supercharged V6, launching the 2425 lb. car from 0-to-60 in just 3.5s. Unlike other supercars, it’s still available with a manual. Coming to the UK, Europe and Japan, but sadly no US model is planned.
