New VIDEO showcasing ‘the most powerful production Lotus ever’, the Evora 400.
|Engine||Power||Torque||0-100kph||Top speed||Weight||Basic price|
|V6, supercharged, 3456cc||400hp @ 7000rpm||302lb ft (410Nm) @ 3500rpm||4.2secs||300kph||1395kg||TBC|
Including the company’s official test circuit in Hethel, a number of speedometer close-ups, and a, er, windmill, the new video shows the Evora 400 in action for the first time. And some pop-ups including technical specifications. Oh, speaking of which…
At the heart of the Evora 400 lies a supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6. Said unit however ups power from 345hp in the similarly-engined Evora ‘base’ model to 400hp in the Evora 400, torque similarly receiving a hike to 302lb ft (410Nm). Packing a completely new aluminium chassis and significantly revised lightweight composite body mean the overall weight has also dropped by 42kg to 1395kg. Top speed is a hearty 300kph, whilst 0-100kph is taken care of in just 4.1 seconds. The transmission is a six-speed manual.
But enough blathering. Norfolk countryside anyone?
