Lotus accidentally let it slip a few days ago that it will launch a special performance Evora S and an Evora automatic at the Paris Motor Show.
Now, the British sportcar manufacturer decided to officially detail these new models, the supercharged Evora S and the automatic-equipped Evora IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift).
First off, the Evora S uses a supercharger to squeeze more power out of the Toyota 3.5-liter V6. Output is now rated at 345 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. This translates in a 0 to 62 mph time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 172 mph. More importantly, however, is that there’s a new Sport button in the Evora S. When pushed, it sharpens up the throttle response, opens an exhaust valve bypass as well as increase the rev limiter and change stability control settings. Simply put, Sport does what it says.
Next up, for those not looking for extreme performance, Lotus will offer the Evora IPS. Basically it is just a regular Evora with the new six-speed automatic transmission fitted. More importantly is that this hasn’t impacted the weight of the car, and it has both an automatic and a manual mode, which is enabled through the paddle shifters behind the wheel.
Expect more details when the Paris Motor Show will open its doors at the end of September.
