Lotus’ booth at this year’s Geneva Motor Show was a dark and lonely place, at least compared to the Bahar era when it was full of celebrities and glittering concepts. All the good folks of Norfolk have to offer this time is the Lotus Evora 400, which is a slightly hotted-up version of the existing model.

The fact that Lotus could whip up this thing is still impressive and a definite sign things are moving forward at the company. They have been hit this past year with lots of financial and managerial issues. But they are slowly getting their focus back and working on new models for the future.

Lotus Evora 400 is one of the fastest production models the British firm has ever produced, with a 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds) and a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). This serious turn of speed is the result of employing an upgraded supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine, developing 400 horsepower and 410 Nm of torque.

Lotus engineers have also shaved a few kilos off the Evora’s mass in the 400 and gave it a more dynamic and aerodynamic look by installing new bumpers. Refinement is also improved in the Lotus Evora 400 thanks to a revised interior. Production of this model will begin in summer for the European market and in autumn for North America.
