The Evora Cup race car has been launched, and will be eligible for racing in the GT4 category and an innovative one-make Lotus Evora Cup.
The Evora Cup racer, unveiled at the Autosport International racing car show in Birmingham today, will cost £120,000 excluding taxes.
The race car is powered by a 4.0-litre V6 with 'more than 392bhp' according to Lotus - the road car has a 276bhp 3.5-litre V6 powerplant. The racer also has a dry sump and Cima six-speed sequential paddle shift dog gearbox.
Chris Arnold, commerical motorpsort director, said: "It's been fun working with a new Lotus. As good as the Elise, Exige and 2-Eleven are, the bigger size, weight and power of the Evora allow us to compete in larger and more prestigious series than before. "It elevates us higher up the grid within motosport and we can compete at a higher level. It adds more prestige to the brand."
Other motorsport tweaks include adjustable dampers, six-piston front brake calipers and two piece aluminium belled brake discs, plus standard safety equipment.
