2019 - Present

The British car-manufacturer Lotus has revealed a new supercar built for the public roads but with even greater abilities on the track: the Evora GT. Lotus was always connected to the high-performance and nimble cars. For a long time, it wasn't that important on the market anymore, until it revealed the Elise, the car that changed everything. Its basic principles of light vehicle and powerful engines worked very well, especially for those who were heading down the racetrack for weekend races.

2018

The British company, Lotus, started back in the 50s and ever since, it has only produced racing and sports cars. All of their models’ names start with the letter “E” and the Evora nameplate has been around for over a decade. Compared to the older versions, the new Evora was faster, sharper and more appealing than ever, with its badass racer look. Could it be driven daily? Of course, if the fuel consumption was not a problem.

2016 - 2018

Lotus probably had a "keep-it-light" banner in their cafeteria that made them take the newly introduced Evora 400 and turned it into the 410 model. In March 2016, the British carmaker unveiled a new version of the Evora model. Its engineers burned the midnight oil and consumed gallons of coffee to find new ways to reduce the car's weight. They shaved 70 kg (154.3 lbs) from the Evora 400. Lotus' design team had an even more challenging job making the car look different without adding more weight. They replaced the aerodynamic package with a carbon-fiber one. That inc...
