Most Powerful Road Going Lotus Sports Car Ever – The Evora GT430
Lotus has decided to go one step further with their models as they have just introduced the Evora GT430 and it is their most powerful road-going model ever.
- 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds
- 430 horsepower from a 3.5-litre supercharged and charge cooled V6
- 60 units planned worldwide
- 250 kg downforce at 305 km/h
- Anew benchmark weight of 1,258 kg (dry)
With new and specifically designed body panels, featuring exposed carbon weave sections, front and rear, the Lotus GT430 generates up to 250 kg of downforce through advanced aerodynamics. At the rear, aero ducts behind each wheel reduce pressure in the wheel arch and offer visibility of the wider Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, and a large rear diffuser provides a sharp visual finish. Both are crowned by the large, profiled carbon wing.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc said, “The Evora GT430 is a landmark car for Lotus. Lightweight engineering and class-leading handling, paired with Lotus’ aerodynamic expertise, define the Evora GT430 as a legendary Lotus. It’s a truly beautiful car, meticulously finished in hand-crafted carbon, and employing the latest aerodynamics and lightweight materials. This highly developed vehicle perfectly reflects Lotus’ attention to engineering and design. We expect the lucky owners to be blown away by its pure presence and staggering performance.”
