Lotus Evora GX Race Car Unveiled [Photo Gallery]
The car was designed by Lotus to compete in the American Grand-Am Rolex Sport Car Series. To get it to become a competitive racer, they’ve added a body kit with flared wheelarches and a number or aerodynamic upgrades, such as a chin splitter and extended ground-works skirts.
The Evora GX has yellow headlights and fog lights, plexiglass windows with flaps on the side, as well as a Grand-Am approved roll cage. To take weight off the car, the engine cover, doors and roof are all made from carbon-fiber.
Power comes from a 4-liter V6 tuned to 440 hp and 324 lb-ft (440 Nm) of torque. The shifting is done using a six-speed sequential transmission. All Evora GXs will be built to order with prices from $335,000 in the US.
