Lotus Presents Evora S and Evora IPS
At the core of the S version of the Evora lies a mid mounted, transverse 3.5l V6 engine which develops 350 PS at 7,000 rpm and 400 Nm of torque at 4,500 rpm. With a maximum speed of 172 mph (276 km/h), the car is capable of reaching the Holy Grail 60 mph in 4.6 seconds. The engine is controlled via a 6 speed manual transmission.
The Evora S comes with a sport pack as standard. The pack features a sport button allowing control over the throttle response and the activation of the exhaust by-pass valve. The rev limit is raised when the button is pushed, while the dynamic stability control settings are also changed.
The two versions of the Evora will be presented, as said, at the Paris Auto Show in October. Those waiting for the real rebirth of Lotus promised back in June might be a bit disappointed by these two Evora versions, as they were expecting a revolutionary vehicle on the shows' floor.
Not all hope is lost though. More is to come from Lotus regarding the Paris Auto Show.
