First Lotus Evora 400 Rolls Off the Line in England

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 7/3/2015 Kelly Pleskot

Lotus celebrated as the very first Evora 400 drove off the assembly line this week in Hethel, England. And naturally, we're counting down the days until the model arrives on our shores.

Research

Along with every other Lotus car made at the headquarters, the Evora 400 was built by hand. Workers will continue producing more Evora 400 models for European markets this summer, and deliveries will start in August. Customers here in North America will have to wait until early 2016 to snag the supercar.

The Lotus Evora 400 debuted earlier this year at the Geneva motor show with a more powerful engine, a lighter body, and a more comfortable interior. Like its name suggests, the Lotus 400 pumps out 400 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque from a 3.5-liter supercharged V-6 engine. When the model first debuted, Lotus christened it the fastest and most powerful model it has ever built. The model lapped the Lotus test track at Hethel six seconds faster than the previous Evora S in a time of 1 minutes and 32 seconds. MotorTrend Image© Provided by MotorTrend MotorTrend Image

The very first Evora 400 won't waste its days looking pretty in the garage of a lucky owner. Instead, Lotus has destined it as a promotional car from here on out. But plenty of opportunities to snag this supercar are coming soon, and when the 2017 Evora 400 eventually makes its way to the U.S., it will cost $89,900.
