In a nutshell, the Lotus Evora Sport 410 looks sensational; it’s powerful and proceeds exceedingly quickly. It’s the sort of car that instantly grabs the attention of bystanders, be it true driving enthusiasts or people with merely a casual interest in automobiles.
The Sport 410’s body has been constructed using liberal amounts of carbon fibre; on the vehicle’s rear diffuser, front splitter and elsewhere. At just 1,325kg, this model weighs 70kg less than its already super-light standard Sport counterpart. This muscularly curvaceous sports car comes with a range of labour-saving features too, such as electrically folding and heated door mirrors, powerful bi-Xenon headlamps and super-bright LED daytime running lights. The Sport 410’s 19-inch (front) and 20-inch (rear) alloy wheels are bound in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tyres, which deliver exceptional grip.
For such a prodigiously agile and powerful automobile, the Sport 410 delivers a decidedly refined ride. The car’s pair of black Alcantara-trimmed carbon-fibre sports seats provide welcome comfort and support. The vehicle’s steering wheel is clad in leather and Alcantara, and is just one of many sporty accoutrements that are included. Aluminium informs much of the car’s interior; foot pedals, gear knob, face-level air vents, for instance. The same metal has even been used to create a striking blanking plate. This is adorned with the Evora Sport 410 insignia, and is positioned adjacent to the steering wheel.
A 3.5-litre V6 engine is attached to a six-speed manual gearbox. (Automatic transmission is available as an option.) This produces 404bhp, 420Nm of torque and 0-60mph in less than four seconds. This supercharged unit enables the car to achieve a maximum speed of 190mph; on the race circuit, naturally. The Sport 410 offers three drive modes – Drive, Sport and Race, allowing the driver to choose the one that best suits their motoring preferences.
In keeping with Lotus’ aim to deliver performance-driven automobiles, the Sport 410 does without conveniences such as air conditioning or an infotainment system, although these are available as options. Nevertheless, the vehicle is secured with a Thatcham-approved engine immobiliser and remote-controlled alarm system. Electronic Stability Programme is in place too, which detects potential loss of traction and minimises it accordingly. Rear-mounted sensors are also present – an invaluable aid when it comes to parking. The perfect antidote to high speed is forceful braking, which comes in the form of four AP Racing-tuned piston callipers and cross-drilled and ventilated brake discs.
