2017 Lotus Evora 400

Thinking about buying the new 2017 Lotus Evora 400 from Lotus of San Diego? We understand why. The Evora 400 isn't just the best-sounding Lotus since Hethel stopped fitting Weber sidedraft carbs to its U.S.-bound Elans in 1968, it's the fastest production Lotus road car ever, with a top speed of 186 mph. The 400 badge refers to the horsepower, an increase of 55 hp over the old Evora S, made possible by a new charge cooler and a larger supercharger. The weight drops 90 pounds to 3,075 pounds, thanks to lighter seats, wheels, engine mounts, and a host of other small changes. Torque increases 7 lb-ft, to 302 lb-ft, available between 3500 and 6500 rpm. You deserve to reward yourself for a job well done. Pre-Order the 2017 Lotus Evora 400 today from Lotus of San Diego.
The Evora's straight-line lunge is now more pronounced, but that's almost incidental to the car's behavior in curves. The steering rack remains hydraulically assisted and full of feel, there are stiffer springs and dampers, and curb weight is down almost 100 pounds. You notice the better body control during transitions and under braking; the massive increase in mechanical grip, everywhere.

Most significantly, the cabin has been transformed, with easily visible instrument display, a wider footwell, and longer seat travel for the new lightweight Sparco buckets, a lowered sill that makes it easier to get out. The infotainment unit's switches, surfaces, and dials are all light-years ahead of past Lotuses. 
  • Fastest production Lotus ever
  • High power, 400 hp. 3.5 litre V6, 24 valve, water cooled, all aluminium engine, with Edelbrock supercharger
  • Delivers punchy 302 lbs ft (410 Nm) of torque
  • Mid-engine provides outstanding balance
  • Aero package and lightweight rear sport diffuser deliver extra 23 kg of downforce
  • Driver activated, post-cat free flow exhaust enhancement
  • Supercar acceleration from 0 mph to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds

The steering, provides a stunning reminder of what "steering feel" actually means. The rack is mounted lower than before to reduce bump steer, and with the new geometry it's a bit weightier, too. However, that weight does nothing to mask the raw, detailed feedback that floods through the rim, which renders a perfect image of the road and faithfully tells you how much grip the front tires have in reserve. It is incredible, and it draws you into the driving experience from the moment the wheels begin to turn. It's this clear line of communication, along with its balance, that makes the Lotus Evora 400 special. On the track the Evora 400 is predictable, even with stability control disabled. It's fast too, biting hard starting around 3,500 rpm and chomping to the limiter at 7,000 rpm. Through the infamous Windsock corner at the Hethel test track, the 400 feels very stable, perhaps an indication of the new bodywork's enhanced aerodynamics. The new, bigger brakes are strong but not tireless. 

For those who prize purity of feedback, delicate balance, and just plain don't want a Porsche or Chevy, this car holds a deep allure. Drive the 2017 Lotus Evora 400 - a stylish, technologically advanced expression of your individual outlook on life.
