    RC:

    Any technical details? Thanks for the pictures.  

    not much technical info has leaked, only this so far: 

    The Evora Enduro GT Concept has been developed by Lotus Motorsport under the expert eye of Lead Designer Nicola Scimeca.

    It's the base car for Lotus' GT2/GTE Le Mans challenger. In an earlier GT4 Endurance variant, this car enjoyed phenomenal success in it's first few outings with a recent podium finish in the hands of Nigel Mansell's sons Leo and Greg at the Dubai 24 hour race.

    I'll complement this as soon as I know more.

    Re: Lotus Evora Enduro Gt Concept

    I wish the company would consider adding that small vent, that's on this car,  (SEE YELLOW ARROW, just in front of the rear wheel) to the same spot on the new Esprit.  That area looks so unexciting and bland on the 2013 Esprit's body.  It's just a thought.IMG_0033.jpg

    Re: Lotus Evora Enduro Gt Concept

    Wow looks really nice in that color scheme. I hope it does well in its class races, it appears to be very high-tech and fast. 440hp certainly work.

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)
