2016 Lotus Evora is Just Around the Corner

After the British company had to cease selling the Evora model because of problem-plagued airbags, the car manufacturer faced the necessity to redesign its model according to actual US specs. As a result, the revised Lotus Evora 400 hit the automotive market this year.

 

A British supercar obtained some significant changes, and the interior has been completely redesigned as the refreshed model aimed to rival with 2016 Cayman GT4 and 4C cars. Lotus made changes at the weight and power: 2016 Evora is 55hp much faster, lighter and more powerful, providing the top speed of 186mph estimated (8 mph increase) and an output of 400hp that is 55hp more that the predecessor. Lotus is equipped with a Toyota-based 3.5-liter supercharged V-6 engine with a more efficient intercooler and looks like a sports car accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 4.1 seconds. The changes made appear to be significant: the integrated diffuser, the “flattering” fascia, the three-element brighter spoiler, completely all-new side-view mirrors and lighter wheels made Evora look more aggressive and sporty. 

 

As for the interior, the design team had an increased focus on making it lighter and brighter. Oh, and easier – the British automaker offers three trim levels. The cabin is Alcantara luxuriously leathered, the steering wheel is now lightweight; the passengers can enjoy a high-class entertainment system and wider individual rear seats. The dashboard gets a clearer graphic design too.
