FastFox Drives Lotus Evora 400

Faster, lighter and worthy of supercar status.
The Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the New Millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. The Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity so succinctly. Despite producing 400hp from its 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine and with its comfortable cabin having many new features, the overall weight of the Evora 400 has been reduced over its forebear. As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce at high speeds, simply enhances its supercar appeal.20150924185031-493e1236
The exquisite 3.5-litre V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance. Its induction system has been supplemented by a revised supercharger and a water-to-air chargecooler, that raises the power output. Select the first of the six, close-ratio, manual gears and the acceleration is very exciting. The max speed is 186mph.
Underpinning the Evora 400 is a brand new, efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing and sportscar developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work more efficiently, to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging. Yet, it is 48lbs (22kgs) lighter than the outgoing Evora model, features more equipment and literally doubles the downforce available.
It is stylishly attractive, beautifully designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive new front cooling intakes, past the fascinating lateral graphics, to its more prominent rear, 5-blade airflow diffuser and new three-element tail spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built supercar.
