Its lightweight chassis and the composite and carbon fibre body provide a surprising amount of cockpit space, despite the compact exterior dimensions.
The Evora GT4 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity to perfection.
Boasting 356bhp (360PS), its kerb-weight is an exceptional 1,200kgs in race trim.
As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero lift but increases down-force, simply enhances its on track performance appeal.
Select the first of the its six, close-ratio, sequential gears and the acceleration is phenomenally exciting from a standing start.
Equally exciting is its stopping power from the four-pot competition brakes set-up, experienced from within the Evora GT4’s spartan but purposeful cockpit.
It provides proof positive that Lotus makes race car ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and potentially giant-killing.
Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing car developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding.
It allows the adjustable race suspension to work efficiently, to provide leech-like grip, surgically sharp turn-in and a dynamic balance that is mind-blowing.
It is attractive, well designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive front splitter, past the lateral air intakes, to its more prominent rear airflow diffuser and bootlid spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built race-car.
Yet, because it is a Lotus, the Evora GT4 features ‘zero-lift’, although the aero package increases down-force, to make even more efficient use of its beautiful on track manners.
