2017 Lotus Evora Sport 410 GP Edition Limited to Just Five Copies

Special Evora sheds 132 pounds over Evora 400

It appears Lotus is trying to make up for lost ground in the U.S. after its short absence a few years ago. Following the successful release of the Evora 400, the U.S. gets a new special edition Evora that commemorates the brand's market relaunch.

Thankfully, it isn't a simple wheel and tire package aimed at cashing in on collectors—this is a Federalized variant of the new Evora 410 Sport we saw last year. Lotus focused on bringing the Evora's weight down as much as possible, replacing a great number of components with new carbon fiber elements. The front splitter, front access panel, roof section, tailgate, rear quarter panels, and rear bottom diffuser are all carbon fiber, shedding 31.5 pounds and adding some visual menace in the process.

The diet continues when you look under the new carbon skin. A new lithium-ion battery (-23.8 pounds), lightweight wheels (-15.9 pounds), and lighter windshield surround (-7.5 pounds) go toward the impressive 132-pound deficit.

The 410 GP's new bodywork provides an impressive 141 pounds of downforce, apparently double what the Evora 400 is capable of. This extra "stick" is handy, considering the 410's new chassis tweaks, including different wheel geometry, spring rates, and damping.

Power from the 3.5-liter supercharged V-6 remains unchanged at a strong 400 hp and 301 lb-ft of torque. This twist is managed by a standard six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatictransmission, providing a stout 0-60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds and a blistering 190 mph top speed.

See that gorgeous gold-on-black paint scheme? That's the GP Edition. Only five of those will be produced for a cost of $110,000. If you want a "regular" Evora Sport 410, you'd better get in line, as Lotus is only bringing 150 to the States. Prices for the non-GP Evora Sport 410 start at $104,200.

Inspiration in car building can come from just about any direction and, more often than not, thrives when influence from outside the norm works its way into a builder’s final product, and this 1991 Honda Civic is a prime example of that notion. Borrowing from multiple styles helped create a one-of-a-kind ED chassis Civic that

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent
