Promoting the services of their new Exclusive department, Lotus has released a special version of the Evora 400 boasting a special racing color scheme. What makes this thing more special is the fact that this scheme has been chosen by Lotus fans across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter via polling.
The strictly limited Lotus Evora 400 Exclusive editions also marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Lotus Factory and Headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk. So a hard-core Lotus fan this car is like the holy grail. To reinforce the sense of nostalgia, Lotus Exclusive has also a retro-inspired color scheme with blue and orange elements which is kind of reminiscent of the Gulf colors, and they are calling it simply the Evora Blue & Orange edition. That must mean the upcoming editions will also be called by the colors they feature.
As for the car itself, the Evora 400 is one of the finest creations of the Norfolk-based company, packing a supercharged and charge-cooled, mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine produces 400 hp and 410 Nm of torque. With a dry weight of 1,395 kg, the 400 is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds and it tops out at 186 mph (300 km/h). Other highlights include composite two-piece brake discs from AP Racing, a Limited Slip Differential (LSD), automatic air-conditioning and infotainment system with satellite navigation.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus plc said, “Any one of the designs in the poll would have been a worthy winner. So now that the poll has finished and with thousands of votes cast, we have decided that the winner will make it into production. We only plan to build 10 of these Evora 400 sports cars in total so with their rarity, I expect them to quickly become very desirable.”
