Itâ€™s been a busy year for Lotus; the arrival of the acclaimed Exige S; featured marque at the Goodwood Festival of Speed; a new flagship retail store in Regent Street; third place in the F1 Driversâ€™ Championship and fourth in the F1 Constructorsâ€™ Championship; and amongst various racing exploits, another series win for a Lotus with an Evora GTC taking the MSA British Endurance Championship.
Following the excitement of this race series win, the new Evora â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ is a visually enhanced and optimised version of the mid-engined 3.5 litre V6 sports car, available in both naturally-aspirated or supercharged variants. The Evora â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ proves its value on the pocket, as well as on the road and track - it delivers phenomenal performance, exclusive style, incredible excitement and genuine affordability!
There are three main factors that set the â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ apart from the existing Evora range; firstly, it receives a unique exterior colour scheme with an optimised interior to match. Secondly, it comes fully loaded, boasting Lotusâ€™ ultimate specification. While thirdly, itâ€™s more affordable than ever, representing great value. Hereâ€™s the detail:
Aesthetics: The Evora â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ is available in a choice of four colours: Aspen White, Carbon Grey, Nightfall Blue and Ardent Red. To stand out from the crowd, the â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ receives unique contrasting accents of gloss black across the roof, front splitter, rear diffuser and side sills, exaggerating the Evoraâ€™s aggressive stance and sleek silhouette. Further black elements include black rear badging, black door mirror pods and gloss black forged wheels with a choice of either red or black brake calipers which all work to give the â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ a more dramatic and focused appearance.
Inside, the 2+2 seating option is standard and comes adorned with black leather â€˜Premium Sportsâ€™ seats trimmed with red contrast piping and stitching. The dash, doors and centre console receive a liberal dose of Slate Grey SuedeTexTM with red contrast stitching, highlighting the carâ€™s sporting character.
Like your interiors a bit louder? Go for Venom Red leather â€˜Premium Sportsâ€™ seats with black contrast piping and stitching. All Evora â€˜Sport Racerâ€™ interiors are complemented by gunmetal dashboard panels, as is standard in the Evora S.
Gadgets The Evora â€˜Sports Racerâ€™ comes loaded with optional extras as standard. The â€˜Sports Packâ€™ provides switchable sports mode with sharper throttle response, increased rpm limit and sportier setting for Dynamic Performance Management (DPM), sports diffuser and cross-drilled brake discs. The â€˜Tech Packâ€™ provides upgraded speakers and stereo system, DVD player, 7" WVGA touch screen display, BluetoothÂ® mobile phone connection, USB connection for various iPodÂ® models, MP3 players and memory sticks, tyre pressure monitoring, cruise control and rear parking sensors. This is topped of with electric power-fold mirrors and a reversing camera as standard
