Setting hearts to racing this spring is the gorgeous Lotus Evora Sport 410 GP Edition. This beauty goes from 0-60 in a swift 3.9 seconds. Looking smart in the GP Edition color scheme, as well as Lotus’ standard array of paint options, the new Lotus Evora Sport 410 for North America is the lightest and most focused iteration of the Evora and is 132 lbs lighter than the Evora 400 for North America.
The new, hand-made, top-of-the-range model arrives as the company continues to see sales climb in the US, with the next six months of the market’s allocation already spoken for. Production of the Evora Sport 410 is limited to just 150 examples a year worldwide, and the 2017 MY car is available to order now, from any of the 48 Lotus dealers in the US and Canada.
The new Lotus receives a comprehensive array of carbon-fibre components as standard. Covering the car front to back, they include the front splitter, revised front access panel, roof section, tailgate, rear quarter panels, and rear diffuser – all hand-made specifically for the car.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 features user selectable ESP driving modes. The selectable ESP driving modes utilize an engine exhaust bypass valve at mid-to-high engine speeds, increasing throttle response in both ‘Sport’ and ‘Race’ settings. The Evora Sport 410 is equipped with bespoke, ultra-lightweight wheels, produced specifically to work with the Sport 410.
The Evora Sport 410’s cabin has received the same attention to detail referencing the marque’s heritage, and subtle design cues include optional color coded interior components. The Sport’s seats are trimmed with Alcantara® as standard, along with the steering wheel, lower dashboard, transmission tunnel and center console. An integrated touch-screen entertainment system can also be specified, including iPod® connectivity and Bluetooth® functionality.
The bespoke Evora Sport 410 GP Edition was created in honor of Team Lotus’ iconic F1 color scheme raced between 1972 and 1986. From the famous Lotus 72 through to the beautiful Lotus 79 and the blisteringly fast Lotus 98T – some of the greatest drivers have competed in the famous black and gold. The Evora Sport 410 GP Edition will be limited to an exclusive run of five vehicles.
