The Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus this side of the new 3-Eleven, but as XCAR explains, speed isn’t the only the only thing differentiating it from previous Lotuses.

Like pretty much everybody else on the omniscient Internet, we were mocking Lotus as well when they announced their brand new car was in fact just a beefed up Evora S. We were wrong though, because it’s much more than that.

Lotus claims sixty percent of the 400 is different compared to an Evora S, and while the new car is 55 horsepower up at 400, it also lost 92 pounds despite getting a much nicer interior as well. As Alex Goy points out here, it’s quicker than a Cayman GT4 and a Carrera S.

The new crown jewel will do a sprint to 62mph in 4.1 seconds and keep going until 186mph, but what’s even more important is that it sounds awesome, comes with every bit of the legendary Lotus handling and doesn’t feel like it’s gonna fall apart after the second week of ownership.
