Evora SR

Overview

Weight
The Lotus Evora S Sports Racer is intended to provide a more concentrated driving package for fans of the 2+2 practical sportscar. Its lightweight chassis and the composite body provide a surprising amount of cockpit space, despite compact exterior dimensions. The Evora S Sports Racer exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity to perfection, with a more specific road-going and luxurious flavour. Boasting 345bhp (350PS), its lightweight construction (1,437kgs manual; 1,442kgs automatic) enables supercar performance, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases downforce, which simply enhances its on road performance potential.
Performance
With a 3.5-litre, supercharged, 24-valve V6 engine, power is set at an excellent 345bhp (350PS), allied to a punchy 295lbs ft (400Nm) of torque. Select the first of the Sport Racer’s six, close-ratio, sequential gears and the acceleration from a standing start is brisk to say the least. Equally exciting is its stopping power from the four-pot front and rear, AP fast road brakes set-up, which can be experienced from within the Evora’s spacious, leather-lined cockpit. It provides ample proof that Lotus makes sportscar ownership not only well-focused but also most entertaining. An automatic option is available.
Torsion
Underpinning every Evora S Sport Racer is an efficient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing and sportscar developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding. It allows the high-performance gas dampers to work efficiently, to provide leech-like grip, a crisply precise turn-in to bends and a dynamic balance that is almost extraordinary.
Aerodynamics
The Evora S Sports Racer makes no pretence about its race-bred potential. It is attractive, well designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic, while retaining a classically elegant stance. From the shapely front air-dam to its purposeful bootlid spoiler, it is every inch the characterful sportscar. Yet, because it is Lotus, the Evora S Sports Racer has been engineered to provide ‘zero-lift’, although the mild aero package increases downforce, to make even more efficient use of its inherent on road balance.
