Lotus Evora fqq

The first production examples of the Lotus Evora have now kicked off with its aluminum chassis being fabricated at Lotus Lightweight Structures in Worcester, UK and final assembly taking place at Lotus’ Hethel factory. With the first cars scheduled for customer delivery in May, Lotus has released content lists for the Evora. The 276-hp Toyota-sourced 3.5-litre V6 with a 6-speed manual gearbox is standard. A close-ratio version of the gearbox will be available as an option. Cast 18-inch front and 19-inch rear alloys wrapped with Yokohama Advan Sport LTS rubber are the standard fitment, while forged wheels are available for a bit extra.

Other extra options include bi-xenon lights, power folding mirrors and body color door handles. The Evora can also be ordered with Tech, Sport and Premium packages that group the usual assortment of audio, navigation and interior trim upgrades together. The Sport pack also provides a switch that enables sharper throttle response and more slip from the traction control system, combined with other performance enhancements.

Lotus is planning to boost Evora production up to 34 units per week by July, assuming of course that there is sufficient demand.
