Lotus’ latest Evora is the GT410. It’s an awesome machine, with better spec over its older, but still talented, GT410 Sport relation. 

Long story short; the up-to-the-minute Lotus provides anyone jammy enough to get behind its wheel with enriched usability and a superior level of driving comfort.

The latest set of wheels from the Norfolk sports car maker is designed to be a functional “every day” machine. It comes kitted out with air-conditioning and “Sparco” sports seats to create a more chilled out environment for all occupants.

Furthermore, gadgetry, like a reversing camera, boosts safety during parking manoeuvres. An infotainment system, fitted with Apple CarPlay and navigation, is now standard - and includes a digital radio for the first time. Improved sound insulation further improves the drive by reducing wind and tyre noise.

 

The GT410 holds the road gratifyingly - especially in corners, where the car feels like it’s travelling on rails. Much of this is to do with an altered damper rate. While it still exhilarates, the ride is more relaxed - so British pothole peppered roads aren’t necessarily a concern for this model.

Furthermore, the use of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S all-weather tyres means 365 days a year usability, while a new rear tailgate features a sizeable glass section for excellent rear visibility.

Fast Facts

Lotus Evora GT410 (Manual), as tested:

  • Max speed: 186 mph

  • 0-62 mph: 4.2 seconds

  • Combined mpg: 26.7

  • Engine layout: 3456cc, V6 supercharged petrol

  • Max. power (PS): 416

  • CO2: 239 g/km

  • Price: £82,900

Astonishingly, with a price-tag of £82,900, the GT410 is £3,000 less than the GT410 Sport, so it delivers remarkable value for money.

The Evora GT410 is rather lovely and is just the thing if you’re after a big boy’s toy. Count on doing 186 mph (where legally possible) - and don’t be surprised when your head bonds itself to the headrest - zero to 62 mph takes a mere 4.2 seconds.

Whatever you do, though, please be careful - especially if you cherish your licence. I suggest you find a racetrack when you feel that “speed demon” waywardness in you coming out to play!
