The Lotus Evora GT serves as a replacement for both the Evora 400 and Evora Sport 410, though that's not the main reason why it's special. It just so happens to be the most powerful and fastest street-legal vehicle the iconic UK sportscar company has ever sold in America. Power comes from the familiar Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter V6, which has been supercharged to produce a total of 416 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque when paired to the six-speed manual. An optional automatic transmission with paddle shifters ups the torque to 332 lb-ft. All told, the Evora GT tips the scales at just 3,104 pounds - 71 pounds lighter than the Evora 400.
Buyers can chose between two seats or a 2+2 layout. The interior, however, has changed very little for the new model year. There's a standard seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with navigation and a federally mandated back-up camera. Drivers will have a choice of 'Drive', 'Sport', 'Race,' and 'Off' driving modes.
Not only does the Evora GT look the part, but it also comes equipped with AP Racing four-piston calipers up front and two-piece cross-drilled and ventilated brake discs in the rear. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires are also standard fare.
Like with any Lotus, the Evora GT isn't for amateur drivers but rather those with experience handling extreme sports cars and supercars. They'll be greatly rewarded with what the Evora GT has to offer.
