Lotus Reveals New Carbon Pack & Titanium Exhaust Options For Evora 400

Lotus announced the addition of new lightweight options for the Evora 400, set to make it more fun to drive and of course …lighter.

The new Carbon Pack option will be available in all markets and features a number of components already fitted to the more hardcore Evora Sport 410 as standard.

This includes things like a front splitter section, roof panel, rear wing centre, rear diffuser finisher, front access panel and wing mirror caps, all of them made out of carbon-fiber by hand. All of them together help in cutting mass by 5kg (11 lbs).

The options list also gain a new lightweight titanium sports exhaust option and a lithium-ion battery, which each save a further 10kg (22 lbs). Furthermore Lotus now allows the deletion of the air conditioning system and the removal of the rear seats for even more lightness.

The company claims that when all of the lightweight options are combined, they provide a 42kg (93 lbs) of total weight saving, dropping the Evora 400’s figure from 1,395kg (3,075 lbs) to 1,353kg (2,983 lbs). US and Canada models tip the scales at 1,430kg (3,153 lbs) before any lightweight options.

Lotus has also introduced a cupholder and oddment tray to all Evora models in a bid to make everyday life easier for its owners. The new feature is standard to US and Canada models, with European and Asian ones getting it as an option. The company’s focus on lightweight solutions means that they actually measured the weight of the new cupholder which tips the scales at just 120g (1/4 lb).

Pricing for the new optional Carbon Pack is set at £6,500 in the UK, €9,000 in Germany and $10,000 in the US. The titanium exhaust option is priced at £5,500 in the UK, €7,000 in Germany and $8,000 in the US. Finally the lithium-ion battery asks for £1,350 in the UK, €1,890 in Germany and $1,690 in the US. The deletion of the air-condition and of the rear seats is a no-cost option.
