The 2013 Lotus Evora S will offer customers the option of choosing between a standard six-speed manual transmission and Lotus’s Intelligent Precision Shift six-speed automatic, which has been available on the normal-aspirated Evora IPS since earlier this year.
The official release follows the release of the Evora S IPS at the 2011 IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt almost a year ago. The automatic Evora S will be available beginning this October.
The IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) on the Evora S combines all the power and handling of the supercharged Evora S (3.5 liter V6 delivering 350hp) with the versatility of an automatic gearbox. The optional paddle shift mode allows the driver to manually shift and the added bonus of switching to automatic mode.
