Sedikit Info Lotus Evora
The Evora is considered by many as a Lotus that is more livable, although it can still prove to be quite difficult for a large-sized individual to comfortably fit in the cockpit. There rear cabin is just enough for kids as well. It is also only available with a good old manual transmission, for now at least. It weighs just 1,350 kilograms and power to the rear wheels come from a 3.5 liter VVT-i V6 that is able to produce 276hp at 6,400 RPM and 342Nm of torque available at 4,700 RPM. The Toyota-sourced engine which features a Lotus T6e ECU is linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Apparently the ratios of the transmission are tuned to offer a smoother drive, not as hard-hitting as some performance-oriented transmissions. With all that power and a light weight chassis the Evora is able to hit the century mark in 5.1 seconds and goes on till it reaches 261km/h. It’s average fuel economy is figured at 8.7 liters per 100 kilometers while producing 199 grams of emissions per kilometer.
The Evora is offered with four trim levels in Malaysia with features like Bi-Xenon headlights, power-fold door mirrors, BOSCH Electronic Differential Lock, ABS with EBD offered as standard. The most basic trim level is the Sport Spec Edition which has a switchable sports mode, titanium sports exhaust tailpipe, engine oil cooler, cross-drilled brake discs with black calipers and a sports diffuser.
