Lotus Evora Stratton GT No.4 & VAT Qualifying
Based on the Evora floorpan but with an extra track width of 110mm the car was designed to have a lower centre of gravity, to be lighter and faster. Powered by the 3.5 litre supercharged V6 engine shared by the other Evora and Exige variants but having been re-worked and tuned by Swindon Race Engines. This process involves major engine strengthening, forged pistons, con rods, higher lift camshafts and a specially re-worked exhaust system making this a very lively engine producing an astonishing 438hp, making it the most powerful Lotus under production, with a standing start to 60mph in a, astonishing 4 seconds. The throttle response is immediate.
Although having had the capacity to build more, just 20 GTE’s and 1 Race Car were built at Hethel, majority with the IPS semi-auto box and LHD formation although a small number of RHD models and a small number in Manual Transmission were built too.
They were all sold before they were built and once Lotus reached the required figures for the GT3 regs production of this amazing car ceased.
More parts were produced than were necessary to complete the requisite 20 cars. Due to its special relationship with Lotus Stratton Motor Company entered into the deal to take on the remaining stock of parts and bodies to be able to produce five more cars, all hand built by Stratton Motor Company to a unique spec and labelled the ‘Lotus Stratton GT’ under the direction of it’s owner and racing enthusiast Roger Bennington.
These five cars have now completed the meticulous build and are ready to go to new home
Each is powered by the 438 bhp 3.5 litre V6 ‘Eaton’ supercharged charge cooled engine but are now supplied with the manual version of the gearbox that was found in the original GTE’s.
Truly individual cars, hand built by Stratton’s team of experts these cars will never be repeated and even as new cars, surely, already have a place in British motoring history.
