Lotus says this Evora GTE Road Car is the automaker's most powerful production vehicle to date. The 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 434 horsepower, which is transferred to the forged alloy wheels by way of an automated manual gearbox.
Originally, the Evora GTE was planned as a China-only special edition. The original allotment sold quickly, though, so Lotus has apparently decided to expand production and bring the GTE to a greater number of markets.
Unfortunately, Lotus did not test the Evora GTE's 0-62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration time yet. The top speed of the Evora GTE is also unknown at the moment, as well as its fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Lotus will announce these details at a later date.
Lotus equips the Evora GTE with their new DPM Dynamic Performance Management system, which incorporates several systems, including the car'sABS and EBD, ESC, and TCS. The DPM system of the Evora GTE also includes a few new innovations, such as the Corner Brake Control (CBC), Drag, Torque Control (DTC), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Hydraulic Brake Assist (HBA), Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD)and the Understeer Recognition system.
To get the extra power out of the V6 engine of the Evora, Lotus gave the GTE a Harrop HTV 1320 supercharger, which features utilizing Eaton Twin Vortex Series (TVS) technology.
