The Evora GTE road car is the most powerful production Lotus road car ever built producing over 444hp from the 3.5 liter V6 Lotus Evora engine. And the Brits showcased it at the IAA 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. Group Lotus has also announced that production will be expanded on the Evora GTE road car to meet demand and reach further markets.
Originally created as a special limited edition for the Asian market and designed to celebrate Lotus’ successful entry to the new global motorsport GTE category, the hand built Evora GTE road car has a sequential AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) racing gearbox and lightweight and forged alloy rims with center lock hubs shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres.
Leather and carbon fiber dominate the cabin and lightweight Recaro carbon fiber seats cosset both the passenger and driver.
