The new 2016 Lotus Evora 400, which marks Lotus' return to the U.S. after a year-long hiatus from our shores, will cost $89,900 when it goes on sale this December.

A new $1,958 “Black Pack” darkens the roof, sills, rear wing, and interior headliner. Other options include lightweight wheels for $3,917, colored brake calipers for $470, Alcantara or leather interior upgrades for $3,917, and metallic paint for $1,410.

While the Lotus Evora used to compete directly with the Porsche Cayman, Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and the Alfa Romeo 4C, the new pricing and power boost puts it onto a new playing field, up against the Porsche 911, Chevrolet Corvette Z06, and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

The Evora now comes with two-piece, 14.6-inch brakes from AP Racing, alongside a new limited-slip differential. The 2016 Lotus Evora 400 is built on a new aluminum chassis, with new composite material in the front and the rear of the sports coupe.

Under the hood, the Evora 400 packs more firepower over the previous model, with a revised 3.5-liter V-6 engine, now supercharged to push out 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque, a boost of 55 hp and 7 lb-ft of torque over the 2014 Evora S. This power boost allows the new Evora 400 to sprint to 60 in a scant 4.1 seconds, down from the Evora S’ 4.4 seconds. Top speed for the Evora 400 jumps to 186 mph, up from the Evora S’ 167 mph. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a standard six-speed manual transmission, with an optional automatic transmission offered at $3,134.
