Lotus Launches Its Most Comfortable Sports Car Yet

Reveal / Comments

Say hello to the new Lotus Evora GT410.

The Lotus Evora launched way back in 2008. And while we're still waiting for its eventual replacement to arrive, Lotus has updated the Evora over the years to make it faster, lighter, and more agile. Today, Lotus is expanding the Evora lineup with the announcement of the new Evora GT410, which will be sold alongside the Evora GT410 Sport.

Compared to the Sport version, the new GT410 provides "usability and a new level of driving comfort," making it more suitable as an everyday road car. Several features that were previously only available on the options list are now standard equipment, and yet the GT410 costs £3,000 ($3,900) less than the GT410 Sport. The new Lotus Evora GT410 comes with Sparco sport seats and air-con to make the interior more comfortable for daily driving, while a reversing camera improves safety during low-speed maneuvers.

A premium infotainment system with sat-nav and Apple CarPlay is now offered as standard and also includes DAB digital radio for the first time. Lotus has also increased the cabin sound insulation resulting in reduced road noise while cruising. Integrated arm rests on the door trims and storage bins further increase the comfort and practicality. Exterior paint color choices have also been expanded with new "historic shades from Lotus' past."

The new road-focused Evora also has a revised damper rate compared to the GT410 Sport and features new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S all-weather tires. A new rear tailgate features a large glass section for improved rear visibility. Standard equipment includes a body-colored roof, side sills, tailgate, front access panel and mirror backs, plus red AP Racing brake calipers.

The Lotus Evora GT410 also rides on the choice of either silver or gloss black V-spoke cast alloy wheels measuring 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear. Interior equipment includes cruise control, heated seats, rear parking sensors.

Like the Sport version, the new Evora GT410 packs a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 engine paired with a six-speed manual gearbox that produces 410 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.0-62 mph takes 4.1 seconds before the GT410 reaches a top speed of 186 mph, while the lighter Sport model will do the same sprint 0.1 seconds faster.

Pricing for the Lotus Evora GT410 starts at £82,900 ($107,841) in the UK and €99,900 in Germany, but US availability hasn't been confirmed. We're not expecting it to be sold Stateside, however, since Lotus has replaced the Evora 400 with the Evora GT in America.
