A successor to the Sport 410, the new car benefits from more carbonfibre parts and an extra-focused chassis set-up to make it a lighter and sharper version of the marque’s Porsche 911 rival.
Power comes from the same supercharged 3.5-litre V6 engine as its predecessor, producing 410bhp at 7000rpm and 310lb ft at 3500rpm and driven to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional automatic with the same number of cogs.
The Evora GT410 Sport is slightly quicker in automatic form, reaching 0-60mph in 3.9sec to the manual’s 4.0sec. Top speed for both is quoted at 190mph.
Much of this pace comes thanks to the car’s light weight – it tips the scales at 1297kg when nobody is onboard, 28kg less than the Sport 410.
A carbonfibre roof panel and tailgate are standard. Add weight-saving options, including a titanium exhaust and Ohlins dampers, and the car's dry weight drops to 1256kg.
