The car replaces the Evora Sport 410 and comes with upgraded aerodynamics.
The new Lotus Evora GT410 Sport sits below the GT430 and replaces the Sport 410 in a new revised line-up for the sports car, drawing inspiration from the GT430. Lotus CEO, Jean-Marc Gales said, “The new Evora GT410 Sport takes the lessons learnt from the development of the GT430 to deliver something outstanding and highly capable.” As part of the update, Lotus has given the GT410 Sport more power. The 3.5-liter engine produces 410 hp at 7,000 rpm and 310 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 rpm.
The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual transmission. 0-60 mph comes in at 3.9 seconds for the automatic and 4.0 seconds for the manual. Top speed is 190 mph. The body of the Evora has been re-sculpted to increase downforce. At 190 mph downforce is rated at 96 kg, a 50% increase over the old Sport 410. The GT410 is now the most aerodynamically efficient road car from Lotus. Extensive use of carbon-fiber also reduces the weight of the car by 28 kg to a svelte 1,297 kg. A lightweight package, which includes a titanium exhaust, is available to reduce the weight even further.
The GT410 rides on 19-inch wheels at the front and 20-inch wheels at the rear with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Other suspension packages with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires are also available. Ventilated brake discs provide ample stopping power. The sports car is available in a 2+0 or a 2+2 seating configuration. Optional race seats can be specified. The equipment list includes seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone integration, satellite navigation and an optional reversing camera. Orders for the new Lotus Ever GT410 will open in the US this summer.
