Limited edition Lotus brings 320kW

Look, we like Lotus cars, but often Lotus vehicles are just light-weight cars with reasonably powerful engines.

So, while they’re still lots of fun, compared to something with a big, thumping engine…well you could feel a little like you’re missing out.

But that certainly isn’t the case with this new offering just unveiled in the UK – the Lotus Evora GT430.

This car, limited to a production run of just 60 vehicles, is the most powerful road-legal Lotus ever built.

Boasting a 320kW/440Nm supercharged 3.5 litre V6 engine, Lotus is talking a 3.8 second sprint to 100km/h!

Wrapped around that engine is a hand-built body weighing just over 1.2 tonnes.

Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales tells us the car delivers tremendous real-world speed and handling.

“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, and employing the latest aerodynamics and lightweight materials.

“We expect the lucky owners to be blown away by its pure presence and staggering performance.”
