At the Geneva motor show Lotus brought a car that is to start a new Chapter in the history of the British brand. The speech of the new Evora 400, the power of which finally reached 400 horsepower
The fact that plans to produce a car with engine capacity of more than 400 HP existed in the company of Lotus since 1996. Then was developed modification of the Lotus Esprit V8, which was planned to be equipped with a 3.5-liter eight-cylinder turbo engine rated at 500 HP. But in the process of testing it was found that the gearbox is not designed for such power and very quickly fails. Therefore, the motor was deforced to 350 HP and it took almost twenty years to reach 400 HP – and then, finally, at the Geneva motor show this car was front of us.

Of course, the manufacturer claims it “completely new car”, although in fact in front of us all the same deep modernization. Although this model may seem like a perfect copy of its predecessor, the creators of the new Lotus Evora 400 argue that it is updated on 2/3.
What has changed? In fact, all the basic elements. And it is not even about a new bumper, the diffuser or the spoiler, which came in handy. The fact that “Evora” improved brakes, upgraded suspension, new rear subframe and engine mounts, and it even dropped along the way a good 22 kg of weight.
But most important changes are under the hood. It comes with a 3.5-liter turbo engine, which power is increased up to 400 HP with a peak torque of 410 nm. Moreover, the British claim that this is the most powerful Lotus in history. Given time to disperse hundreds (4.1 seconds) and a maximum speed of 300 km/h) electronics limited, they are willing to believe.
