2016 Lotus Evora 400

The hard financial times that British sports car brand Lotus is going through apparently haven’t dampened the company’s spirits, or its ability to create beautifully fast vehicles, even if the latest is more of an overdue revamping of the company’s flagship ride.

The Evora 400, with 400 horsepower and 302 pound-feet of torque coming from its mid-mounted, supercharged 3.5-liter V-6, makes it the fastest road-ready Lotus ever, promising a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph. There’s a new aluminum chassis and a host of subtle cosmetic changes, including redesigned front and rear ends, an improved leather interior with a wider seat, and a better climate system. It all rolls on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels covered in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Look for the Lotus Evora 400’s official debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show on March 3, and expect to see it in showrooms this fall. [Purchase]
