    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

    I find it a little hard to swallow that the Lotus factory would involve Swiss tuner Mansory in a production model.
    Was this really an "official" Lotus introduction?  Smiley

    It's an official Lotus "Concept" at this stage. Mansory do all the body work and interior. There is a lot of carbon fibre. Most if not all of the exterior and interior is in carbon.
    If it makes production, someone on another forum said it was going to be around USD $200k.

    I think I'd be interested at $90k or less - more than double, not so interested...

    There is no try. Just do.


    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

     Normally I don't like spoilers, but the Evora really needs one to make the back look good.

    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

     that looks good !


    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

    A bit too extreme for me but more interesting is the engine, do we have any torque value at the moment ?

    I would guess it has a bit more than a GT3 (maybe an additional 10% - not sure what that is in Nm, but around 340 ft-lbs is my guess)

    i take this gumball evora s  over that gte anyday!


    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

    The gumball one has single exhaust. Pretty lame if you ask me. The GTE has GT3 like dual exhaust. And is over 100 kgs lighter than an Evora S. So I know which one i would take !


    Re: Lotus Evora GTE Road Car

    They seem to have changed the spoiler

    Lotus Proves: Fortune Favours the Brave


     

    Lotus Evora GTE Road Car
    Lotus Evora GTE Road Car
    The Evora GTE road car: The most powerful production Lotus road car ever built. Simple.

    Producing over 444 PS from the 3.5l V6 Lotus Evora engine, the GTE is, quite simply, the most powerful Lotus road car ever built. Yet contrary to its extreme roots, the Evora GTE road car also delivers a comfortable and refined element to its high performance driving characteristics.

    Originally created as a special limited edition for the Asian market and designed to celebrate Lotus’ successful entry to the new global motorsport GTE category, the hand built Evora GTE road car has all the attributes you’d expect of an endurance racer including a sequential AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) racing gearbox and lightweight and forged alloy rims with centre lock hubs shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres.

    Group Lotus can now announce that production will be expanded on the Evora GTE road car to meet demand and reach further markets.

    Lotus Lightweight DNA: Clever use of carbon fibre has been integrated extensively throughout the exterior and interior of the car, this is one major contributors to the 105kg weight reduction versus the base Evora. Carbon fibre has been used for all the bodywork modifications including the front and rear bumpers, the rear wing and the doors.

    Complimenting the striking exterior is a stunning, modern race-themed interior providing both occupants with the race car thrill without compromising on comfort. Leather and carbon fibre dominate the cabin and lightweight Recaro carbon fibre seats cosset both the passenger and driver giving a sense of security and comfort that mean that any driver of the Evora GTE can really go the distance as they take command of this extraordinary car.

    Commenting on the Evora GTE road car, Group Lotus CEO Dany Bahar said: “The response to this model in China has been so incredible, within days we had sold out with 114 orders. In response we decided that the only logical step from a business perspective was to increase production and widen our reach.

    “What is unique about this car, is not just that it’s a serious race car – it’s a serious car. People get so excited when they see and especially hear it for the first time. It’s a very special car and will appeal to a very special type of driver – and they won’t be disappointed!”
