Lotus Evora GT4 evolves into GTC


Lotus has been busy beavering away at an evolved version of the Evora GT4 racer wedrove briefly last year and has created this, the Evora GTC.


As well as some wider wheels and tyres (and some very sexy-looking studded wheelarches), the GTC has grown some carbon fibre doors, a carbon roof and a carbon fibre engine cover, helping to save around 30kg.

There's also now traction control and anti-lock brakes (boo, hiss etc) and an extra 100hp or so (hurrah!), bringing the GTC's 4.0-litre V6 power to 450hp and 339lb ft of torque, put down to the rear wheels via an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox.

We've only one thing to say about that, Lotus - can we have a go, please?

    Car looks lovely, although I'll challenge you on the sexy looking studded arches as something you find in the local tesco car park late at night. Nasty.

    I thought the engine was from Toyota, however it says Cosworth on it?

    Propping up the back of a grid near you soon.

    I'm being a bit thick here - but is that a road car or race car?
