3.7s 2017 Lotus Evora GT430 Scores 6MT, Track Aero and LSD

Here is the kind of facelift that really brings an existing car to life.  Big boost in power, new bodywork on all sides and increased performance all around?  What is not to love? The style of the hottest Evora ever is certainly noteworthy.  Its air-channeled front and rear bumpers are brand new and track-ready.  The front splitter is even more intense than ever.  And of course, a tall rear wing really means business. The louvered hood and carved front sill also speak to functional performance upgrades.  A new exhaust, stick-only configuration and a limited-slip differential make this Evora the most …

3.9s, 186MPH 2017 LOTUS Evora Sport 410 – USA-Bound Carbon Special Cuts 150Lbs

There is a an even hotter variant of the new Evora 400 — and it packs more of a punch than its Sport 4110 badge might boast. A massive light-weighting program swaps the front splitter, front trunklid, roof and rear end to exposed-weave carbon fiber and drops a full dude’s weight in the process! New CF seats make up the rest of the weight savings.  All complemented by a sportier chassis tune and a bump in power. Sounds heavenly — and there is great news for US buyers too — a North American version will join the lineup too for …

2016 Lotus EXIGE SPORT 350 27

3.7s, 170MPH 2016 Lotus EXIGE SPORT 350 is New Road-Legal Cup Racer

A two-pack of exciting news from Lotus today: the new Exige Sport 350 drops nearly 100 pounds from the Exige S via an extensive lightweighting program.  Along with its 345-horsepower supercharged 3.5-liter V6, the new Exige Sport 350 is an absolute rocketship! Consider that the total weight of the Exige is barely 2500-pounds, and you can instantly know how fast the car is.  That weight is up just 200 versus the front-engine MX5 for 2016… a car with only 160-ponies in its most potent guise. Interestingly, the new Exige Sport 350 is now even more rapid as a paddle-shifted automatic: …
