Lotus launches its new 2020 Evora GT, which is faster and lighter than its predecessors, Evora 400 and Evora Sport 410.

2020 Evora GT Made Lighter And Faster

The most powerful Lotus car ever sold in the United States and Canada has a 3.5-liter V-6 engine producing 416 horsepower. The six-speed manual coupe hits 60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a maximum speed of 188 mph.

The new car only weighs 3,104 pounds, making it 71 pounds lighter than the Evora 400. This is made possible by using a front carbon fiber access panel, roof panel, spoiler, and diffuser.

The latest Evora GT produces 141 pounds of downforce, which is twice of what the Evora 400 can make. It comes with a new front splitter, larger vents on a redesigned rear bumper, vents over the front wheel arches, and a new rear diffuser.

It is using Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (245/35 ZR19-93Y at the front and 295/30 R20-101Y at the rear) that are covered with forged aluminum 10-spoke wheels and boasts an ultra-light sports suspension.

Automatic Transmission, Optional Carbon Pack Available

Aside from speed manual gearbox with a Torsen type limited slip differential (LSD), Evora GT can be availed with an automatic transmission option.

"Quick shifting through the gears via lightweight aluminium paddles mounted to the steering wheel contributes to a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 second," Lotus wrote in its press release.

Also, an optional Carbon Pack priced at $10,000 adds a front hood panel, rear bumper and diffuser, roof, a one-piece louvered engine cover, and redesigned rear spoiler all in carbon fiber, providing a mass reduction by 49 pounds.

On the inside, the car sports the classic Lotus titanium stick with Alcantara on the door panels, dashboard, center console, and transmission tunnel. It features an infotainment system with 7-inch touch screen that comes with AppleCarPlay system and Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite navigation, and reversing camera.

The Lotus 2020 Evora GT can now be ordered online starting at $96,950.
