Lotus Evora S and Evora IPS Automatic

Lotus Evora S 1 at Lotus Evora S and Evora IPS Automatic

This is the Lotus Evora S, a hotted-up version of the original car which is kinda track-focused and comes with more power and and tweaked chassis and handling. the car comes with a sport pack as standard featuring a ‘sport’ button which allows the driver to control throttle response and activate the exhaust by-pass valve. This magical button makes the car sharper and edgier and much more fun!

The Evora S has a completely new active exhaust which at the push of a button cracks up the volume. The car is powered by a 3.5 litre DOHC V6 VVT-I which develops 350 hp and is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox.

Commenting on the Evora S, Lotus Chief Commercial Officer Andreas Prillmann said: “The Evora S is a natural progression for us but more than that, it’s a taste of what people can come to expect from the next generation of Lotus cars. It retains core Lotus values such as performance through lightweight but it also gives more than that. It’s the perfect combination of top performance, style and comfort. Form doesn’t sacrifice function in the case of the Evora S.”

Lotus Evora S 3 at Lotus Evora S and Evora IPS Automatic

Apart from the Evora S, Lotus also introduces an automatic version with a six-speed IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift). But it gets the same 280 hp engine as standard Evora. The IPS version of the Evora allows the driver to switch between manual paddle shift and automatic drive modes. The driver also has the option of selecting ‘sport’ mode which showcases the Lotus sport driving experience allowing the driver to really feel each gear shift and be in complete control of the transmission.

Commenting on the development Dany Bahar said: “The Evora IPS is set to broaden the appeal of the Evora and reach out to a slightly different market. We hope it will be popular with established automatic locations such as Asia, the Middle East and the US. It’s been a long time since Lotus created an automatic and we’ve spent a great deal of time refining this one to make sure that it perfectly complements the Evora drive experience.”
