Lotus Evora GTE Limited Edition, Exhibited At Frankfurt Motor Show

Lotus Evora GTE Limited Edition

At first, Lotus said that they are going to make only 114 units of the Evora GTE Limited Edition and all of them will be sold in China. However, after receiving a positive feedback from potential buyers, the British automaker has decided to increase the manufactured units of this limited edition, which probably will not be appreciated by those original 114 clients since they won’t be buying what you would call an exclusive car anymore.

Anyway, this special edition is based on Lotus’ Evora GTE racecar and has the same supercharged 3.5-liter engine that launches 444 hp, which is considerably more than the 350 ponies offered by the Evora S. A novelty of this model would have to be the implementation of a brand new sequential automated manual transmission (AMT) racing gearbox that is capable of transferring the power to those beautiful lightweight forged alloys that have center lock hubs, wrapped around in P-Zero Corsa rubbers from Pirelli.

In comparison to the base Evora, this not-so-limited GTE Limited Edition has lost 232 pounds (105 kg) by using a lot of components made out of carbon fiber, both for the exterior and the interior of the car.
