Lotus Evora GT410 Sport True Lotus dynamics for the long haul UNIQUELY BRILLIANT The stunning new GT410 Sport takes the Evora’s unique attributes to spectacular new heights. Sports car agility, precision and response meets GT car refinement and comfort like never before. First and foremost a pure driver’s car for the road, the Evora GT410 Sport proves that the value of motorsport engineering extends far beyond the race track. Its functional aerodynamics, bonded aluminium chassis, Bilstein dampers, Eibach springs, forged aluminium wishbones and AP Racing brakes are all motorsport grade, intelligently applied for road use. As a result, focused driving is effortless with precise, intuitive steering allied to huge reserves of mechanical grip, agility and poise.

An elegant, low-drag, fastback design combines fluid lines and a swept-forward cabin with an athle [...]
Lotus Exige Sport 410 Blends the extreme with the sublime POWER AND PRECISION While still exceptionally talented on the track, the Exige Sport 410 brings chargecooled power to those wanting to enjoy exceptional dynamics on the road. 410 bhp and 420 Nm meets an unladen weight of just 1110 kg for an exhilarating 369 bhp per ton. Capable of 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds, in Coupe form it records fierce in-gear acceleration all the way to a top speed of 174 mph. The advanced aerodynamics are carefully balanced, generating 70kg of downforce at the rear and 45kg up front for a total of 115 kg at 174 mph. The lightweight front clam panel incorporates wider grilles, a front splitter and carbon fibre air curtains to minimize drag, allowing the Sport 410 to match the top speed of the more powerful Exige Cup 430. As with every Exige however, corner speed is more important and even more impressive. Conveying an extraordinary level of tactility and precision, in both Coupe or Roadster forms, the Exige Sport 410 demonstrates that race car responses can be enjoyed far away from the race track. BORN FOR THE TRACK, BRED FOR THE ROAD Despite the greater consideration for road use, the Exige Sport 410 shares many of the uprated components with [...]
Lotus Evora GT410 LOTUS EVORA GT410 Combines sports car agility, precision and response with comfort and every day usability. GT BRILLIANCE The new Evora GT410 features an enhanced standard spec over the GT410 Sport, providing owners with improved usability and a new level of driving comfort. Numerous features have moved from the Evora options list to become part of its standard specification. GT410 Sport delivers exceptional value for money. The new Evora GT410 car has a revised damper rate compared with the GT410 Sport. While it still delivers an outstanding performance-oriented experience, this creates a more compliant ride for improved real-world comfort. The use of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S all-weather tyres means better all-year usability, while a new rear tailgate features a large glass section for improved rear visibility. These upgrades are in addition to the Evora’s already high level of standard equipment. These include a body-coloured roof, side sills, tailgate, front access panel and mirror backs, red AP Racing brake calipers and silver or gloss black V-spoke cast alloy wheels, 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at the rear. EVERY DAY USABILITY The new Lotus Evora GT410 is designed to be a more usable ‘every [...]
Lotus Exige Cup 430 Blends the extreme with the sublime PURE THRILL The ultimate Exige experience. Chargecooled for a consistent 430bhp and capable of generating 171 kg of downforce, this is the road and track weapon to rule them all. The radical aero package is not for show. The Exige Cup 430 generates as much downforce at 100 mph as the Exige Sport 350 does at 170 mph. Weighing just over 1110kg with a full tank of fuel, the power-to-weight ratio hits a staggering 387 bhp per ton. With 440 Nm (325 lb ft) of torque from 4,000 rpm, 0-60mph is blitzed in 3.2 seconds on the way to a top speed of 174 mph (278 km/h). A new ultra-lightweight front clam with unique carbon fibre ducts has wider radiator apertures to improve cooling, while a new front splitter and air curtain design help reduce drag and generate 76kg of downforce. This is balanced by a large, high-mounted, straight profile, motorsport wing and aluminium diffuser, combining to generate a further 95kg of downforce at the rear. RACE READY The carbon fibre panels are stunning quality and motorsport-grade. They include the front splitter, front access panel, roof, diffuser surround, enlarged air-intake side pods, one-piece tailgate and race derived rear wing. Scratch the [...]

A lesson in the value of a high power-to-weight ratio, the combination of potent, torque-rich, 3.5 litre supercharged V6 in a rigid, lightweight chassis provides thrilling acceleration and instant response. Pure, unassisted steering offers exquisite feedback and vivid communication at all speeds. The Exige benefits from its own, bespoke version of the pioneering, bonded aluminium chassis, a unique rear subframe and forged aluminium double wishbone suspension at the rear.
