New 2018 Lotus Evora GT410 Sport launched

January 12, 2018 0 By autotimesnews

The latest special edition Lotus, the 2018 Evora GT410 Sport, is a series production car derived from the limited run Evora GT430.

Like Lotus’ GT430, the GT410 Sport comes with new composite front and rear body panels, and while it doesn’t have any of the high downforce elements of its track-focused sibling, it still generates 50% more downforce than its predecessor.

Power comes from a 3.5-litre supercharged Toyota-derived V6 producing 410bhp and 420Nm of torque. It’s available in a choice of manual or semi-automatic transmissions, both with six speeds. 0-60mph takes 3.9 seconds in semi-auto form (four seconds for the manual), however top speed with the auto ‘box equipped is 171mph, 19mph slower than the manual’s 190mph maximum velocity.

The result of this is a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) acceleration time of just 3.9 seconds for the automatic version, and 4-seconds flat for the manual.

Customers from European and Asia Pacific markets can already place their orders for the new Evora GT410 Sport, while those living in the U.S. and China will have to wait until the summer.

Whereas UK buyers will spend upwards of £85,900 for it, those living in either Germany, France or Italy will have to fork over €110,900, €111,900 and €116,000 to Lotus respectively.
