Another Lotus Evora special hits town, with Lotus launching the GT410 Sport that sits below the GT430 and replaces the previous Evora 410 Sport. The GT410 Sport comes available in either 2+2 or just 2 seater forms with the choice of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The manual option includes a Torsen limited slip diff, marking it as the choice to have for the most engaging driving experience.
The Toyota sourced V6 is fitted with an Edelbrock supercharger, helping achieve peak power figures of 305 kW (410 hp) at 7000rpm and peak torque of 420 Nm (309 lb-ft) arriving at 3500rpm. Top speed is higher than the GT430 at 190 mph, due to the removal of the big rear wing and more streamlining of the body. Lotus continues its recent trend of continually modifying its range with little improvements and tweaks in the effort to keep up with the competition, whilst being limited in both size and funds.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc said, "We are continually exploring new ideas, innovating and evolving our cars in pursuit of perfection. The new Evora GT410 Sport takes the lessons learnt from the development of the GT430 to deliver something outstanding and highly capable. Starting 2018 in style, the Evora GT410 Sport is just the beginning of an incredibly strong year for Lotus. The core principles of Lotus and our founder Colin Chapman remain paramount as we work on the next generation of vehicles whilst building our best sports cars yet."
