Lotus is turning 70 this year. So lets blow out some candles and unleash a new roadster. The new Evora GT 410 Sport made its official debut today, replacing the popular Evora Sport 410. Now with comprehensive carbon-fibre components as standard and weighting just 1,256 kg, the redesign renders a more aerodynamically optimized GT series model. Styling aside, the focus was on increasing downforce, now offering a 50% increase compared to the outgoing model.

The new GT 410 Sport will hit 0-60 mph in just 3.9-seconds via a specially calibrated and tuned higher-output version of Lotus’ supercharged, 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine making 410-hp, and hitting a top speed of 190 mph or 305 km/h.

Evora GT 410 Sport Release Date

Available in both a 2+2 or 2 seat setup, Lotus’ latest rocket will go on sale in North America and China this summer 2018, but for European and Asia Pacific markets orders being accepted now.
