The latest and greatest version of the Lotus Evora 400 is a spectacularly fast and lightweight car that makes innovative use of materials in order to find a perfect balance between performance and durability.

This lightweight car weighs a significant 42 kg less than its predecessor thanks to the use of a number of customized options including new mirror caps, roof materials and diffuser trim. As far as pure performance is concerned, the new Lotus Evora 400 comes equipped with a supercharged V6 engine mounted in the middle of the engine. The vehicle offers superior handling thanks to its balanced structural setup, making it responsive and deeply satisfying to drive.

There are a few ways to make an already impressive car faster, and Lotus has shown that it doesn't always have to do with the actual engine, with intelligent use of materials making it possible to reduce weight and increase speed.
