|Lotus Cars Malaysia has introduced the Lotus Evora 400 for the domestic market. The Lotus Evora 400, the fastest production car by the marque, came as a much needed variant to Lotus Cars M’sia’s aging line-up portfolio.|
Being much faster and dynamically more capable than the previous Lotus Evora, this newest Lotus leads to greater agility and a more involving drive. The Evora 400 has a maximum speed of 300km/h and an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds (0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds). This enables the new Lotus Evora 400 to lap the challenging test track at the Lotus Headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk with a whopping 7 seconds faster than the previous sports car.
Over two thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-liter V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and 410 Nm of torque. A new aluminum chassis incorporates a new interior and the lightweight composite body has changed significantly both front and rear.
Following the core values of the company, not only is the new Lotus Evora 400 faster than its predecessor but its overall kerbweight has been reduced by 42kg, achieved through careful and clever design and attention to details. This weight reduction is even more impressive considering that the supercar has more power and a higher standard specification than before which further enhances its appeal.
For those who don’t already know; the Lotus Evora 400 first made its debut at the Geneva Motorshow last year. For its debut in the domestic market, Lotus Cars M’sia offers a promotion package for the Evora 400, which includes 3 years warranty, 2 years free service, one time experience at the Lotus Driving Academy and an automatic membership to the distinguished Lotus Official Club Malaysia (LOCM). Furthermore, the first thirty buyers of the Evora 400 are entitled to a special promotion price.
