Celebrating one of their most iconic models of all time, and also making some buzz for their Exclusive department, Lotus unveiled a one-off version of the Evora. Inspired by, and built as a tribute to, the Lotus Esprit S1 from Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me, this one-of-a-kind Lotus Evora Sport 410 comes with a host of special features that put on display the capabilities of Lotus Exclusive department.
Based on the limited edition Sport with a 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine, producing 410 hp at 7000 rpm and 420 Nm of torque at 3500 rpm which gives the car a 0-60 mph time of 3.9 seconds, the Esprit tribute Lotus Evora Sport 410 is a nice blend of performance and exclusivity. It comes with a custom front bumper, one-piece carbon-fibre tailgate, black coach line, and a bespoke badge script on the B pillar as the main highlights of the exterior, while inside it features carbon-fibre sports seats and door cards trimmed in Tartan, red contrast stitching and Alcantara dashboard and console finish.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc said, “So many of us recall the impact of the Lotus Esprit when it hit the big screen in The Spy Who Loved Me, and we wanted to honour that with a special Evora Sport 410. It’s the perfect tribute to such an influential Lotus, but a world away in terms of its abilities and performance. Supremely fast and agile, rivals’ cars look overweight and underpowered in comparison. Lotus was founded on the principle of lightweight engineering and, even today, nobody does it better.”
