Lotus Evora 400
Lotus Evora 400 was already a significant model for this generation. 42 kg lighter than its grand sister, its mid-mounted 3.5L V6 engine can achieve exceptional prowess. Indeed Lotus Evora 400 can achieve 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.2 seconds and reaches a top-speed of 300 Km/h, capacities repeated in the Hethel Edition Evora 400.
As in the Lotus Evora 400, the Hethel Edition Evora 400 has 400hp and revealed revised performances thanks to its aluminium chassis but also a better airflow management and improved aerodynamics with a new rear diffuser, rear wing and bodywork.
Inside, Hethel Edition Evora 400 has a new air-conditioning system and infotainment system with satellite navigation, alike the Evora 400, but also larger spaces for passengers, larger seats and easier access thanks to a wider door aperture. Then, automatic transmission allows to choose between two different modes “Sport” or “Race”. So, the Hethel Edition Evora 400 is distinctive by the large choice of colour schemes and the fact that buyer can largely personalize this new car.
