Monterey: Lotus unveils Evora GTE Road Car Concept at the Jet Center
Yesterday evening at the Monterey Jet Center, Lotus unveiled the Evora GTE Road Car Concept, a tribute to the Evora race car that was created to compete in the GTE race class. The car looks eerily familiar to the Mansory-built Evora shown earlier this year, and the badge on the back of the spoiler is evidence that the Swiss company was involved with this concept. Even so, the car is tastefully done and looks fantastic in person.
The Evora GTE Concept isn't just about looks, though. Behind the rear seats is a 420-horsepower version of the supercharged four-cylinder engine, running through a sequential AMT gearbox. Lightweight racing wheels with center-lock hubs are wrapped around sticky Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.
