We all know that Lotus hasn’t exactly set the world on fire as of late, in fact, they only had one road model for sale at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. If we can believe the latest rumors, this could change in the foreseeable future. Jean-Marc Gales, the CEO of the company has some very interesting plans in store (apparently, Daimler too).
Those plans will revolve around some new concept cars and even a brand new flagship model that will wear the Evora 400 moniker. Available since 2010, the original Evora was a relative success, but the latest concept that was unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, clearly represents another level, coming with simply breathtaking specs.
Called Evora 400, the new car will incorporate a 400 horsepower, V-6, supercharged 3.5 liter engine that will make the car capable of going from 0 to 60 miles in just 4.1 seconds. That would make the new Evora the fastest Lotus ever. The specs list a top speed of 186 mph, which, considering the results of the Lotus’ Hethel test that was carried out on their track, could very well be true. The new Evora beat the old model’s time by an astonishing six seconds.
