Only five units are to be made, all of which will be headed to clients in the US and Canada.
Lotus’ road-going cars may not be all that popular in our neck of the woods, but they make some exciting sportscars which you can't really miss. And if you're a Formula 1 enthusiasts, you definitely don't want to miss Lotus' newest car for sure. Called the Evora Sport 410 GP Edition, the latest offering from Lotus is a throwback special that clubs the brand’s illustrious Formula 1 history with its present sportscar in a special colour scheme.
The Evora Sport 410 GP Edition is developed by the brand’s Exclusive division to commemorate Team Lotus’ iconic F1 livery, which featured on their racing cars between 1972 and 1986. And as a result, it comes finished in a striking yet simple looking shade of black and gold. Only five such examples will be produced, and all of them will be headed to the US and Canada.
Apart from its racing livery, the GP Edition also comes with significant upgrades over the standard car. Tipping the scales at 1,370kg, it’s around 60 kilogrammes lighter than the standard Evora Sport 410. In addition to that, it rides 5mm lower to the ground and comes with a revised suspension setup. The engine, however, is the same 410bhp/420Nm producing 3.5-litre supercharged V6 petrol that does duty in the Evora Sport 410. As per Lotus, the car will do 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 305km/h.
Price? The standard Lotus Evora 410 costs about 104,200 US dollars (Rs 67 lakh ), so it’s a no-brainer that the GP Edition will command some premium over that. Which it does. The Evora Sport 410 GP Edition is priced at 110,000 US dollars (Rs 71 lakh).
