This 2018 Lotus Evora 400 is being offered by the selling dealer and is finished in a special option Sky Blue paint with yellow calipers over a black alcantara and leather upholstery. Options include the exterior carbon and black packs along with the premium integrated stereo and subwoofer and cruise control. The car now has less than 500 miles and is powered by a supercharged Toyota 3.5-liter V6 paired with a close-ratio 6-speed manual transaxle and Torsen limited-slip differential.

Lotus Cars has been around since 1952, initially building its legacy around racecars, particularly Formula One. But decades later, it’s just as well known for building production exotic sports cars like the Elise, Exige, and now the Lotus Evora 400. The Evora has been around since 2008 and is a truly unique vehicle. Despite being an exotic sports car, it offers seating for four thanks to its 2+2 architecture and is powered by the supercharged V6 engine.

The 400 model incorporated several changes to the Evora platform. Highlights include a new version of Lotus’s extruded aluminum chassis, revised bodywork with lower door sills and updated front/rear fascias, and improved aerodynamics including a 3-element spoiler, re-designed rear diffuser, and updated front cooling ducts in the nose.

This particular Evora 400 features black-finished 19″ front and 20″ rear alloy wheels mounted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Braking is handled by yellow-painted AP Racing calipers and drilled/ventilated rotors all around.

Interior materials were updated in the Evora 400 as well, with black alcantara and leather covering the hard-backed seats, door panels, dashboard, and lower center console.

Equipment includes heated seats, a 3-spoke steering wheel with a red accent at the 12 o’clock position, air conditioning, power windows/mirrors/locks, premium infotainment radio system with Bluetooth and a touchscreen head unit, and more. The factory exhaust system can be modified via a button on the dashboard which will include a “race” mode that opens the exhaust to a glorious sound. The digital odometer shows less than 500 miles.

Power comes from a supercharged 3.5-liter V6 borrowed from Toyota, which was factory-rated at 400 horsepower and 302 lb-ft of torque. Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a close-ratio 6-speed transaxle and Torsen limited-slip differential.

There is a driving video of the Evora 400 by Matt Farah describing his impressions of the car and driving experience.

I love anything that is newer and small in size. Each year the size and weight of cars getting more and more. The Lotus’s are light, nimble, and with 400 hp available also have some power. Love this car!!

I was at the Seller’s garage and helped a friend look at and then buy his Renault R5T. While I was there he also had the Lotus out for another buyer to look at and he started it up and it is amazing how good that little Toyota motor sounds, very impressed with the car.

Lost out in the Dinan M3 but this is very tempting. Can someone else comment on the driving of these for a larger guy?

Saw and heard this at a local car show last Sunday. He was driving this along with a Ford GT and it held it own on the driving tour before the show. According to the seller it is one of his favorite rides. If it was priced lower I would be all over it. GLWS

Drove one similar to this one and they sound amazing and pull hard through the entire rpm power band.
