The new Lotus Evora Sport 410 is a pure-bred supercar, using Lotus DNA to deliver a spiritual successor to the marque's most iconic models, including the Esprit Sport 300.
More than 70kg lighter than the Sport 400 at 1,270kg dry, with more power and huge gains in aerodynamic efficiency, the Evora Sport 410 is the result of thousands of hours' development across every aspect of the car. From the mass of carbon fibre components covering the car from nose to tail as standard, including a revolutionary one-piece tailgate, to the recalibrated and tuned supercharged 410hp 3.5-litre V6 engine – every inch has been assessed to provide unrivalled performance.
Designed to deliver both on track and on the road, the car's vastly improved aerodynamics deliver an unparalleled level of handing and high-speed stability, and the addition of performance orientated wheels, tyres and critical parts, including the new titanium exhaust, ensures it draws on Colin Chapman's obsession with simplifying, and adding lightness.
Jean-Marc Gales, CEO of Group Lotus, said: 'Lotus has surpassed itself with the Evora Sport 410, and it defines a period in which we are producing our best ever cars. It can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 secs, and its ballistic pace means that, in the right hands, it's unbeatable.
'We have achieved so much in the development of the Evora platform, and the Sport 410 is possibly the most accomplished car we have ever built. It's nothing short of superb, and delivers the power and precision that Lotus cars are renowned for. We've taken the war on weight to a new level, demonstrating perfectly our principle of intelligent engineering.'

Less weight results in sharper and more intuitive handling while lowering the centre of gravity has allowed the suspension to be recalibrated for better body and roll control, yet ride comfort and composure are retained.
It's also the fastest ever road-going Lotus with a 190mph top speed and can lap the Hethel test track in one minutes 28 seconds – three seconds faster than Evora 400.

New carbon components, and the careful modelling of air flow over and under the sculptured bodywork has effectively doubled downforce, now up to 64kg, increasing stability at high speeds.
The two-seater Evora Sport 410, costing £82,000, is limited to 150 cars a year.
