The lovely Lotus Evora has spawned a new variant, which again has roots in motorsport. It is the new Evora Cup which will debut at the Autosport International Show in Birmingham.

This version of Evora is developed with FIA GT4 regulations in mind, which make it also eligible for racing in other GT series in Europe. Lotus has also plans for a one-make racing series for this car.

Lotus Evora Cup is equipped with a tricked-out 4. liter V6 which develops 400 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and about 295 lb-ft of torque at 6,000 rpm. It is mated to a Cima six speed sequential with steering-mounted paddle shifters, and considering its weight of 1200 Kg, it sounds like a promising package. Fu\rthermore it is equipped with a carbon fiber aero package and high performance brakes.
