Lotus has come up with a new Evora variant called ‘Sports Racer,’ and this one dresses up the mid-engined 3.5 litre V6 vehicle in a unique exterior colour scheme and optimised matching interior. The car also comes as standard fully loaded in terms of specification.

Four colours are on the palette, these being Aspen White, Carbon Grey, Nightfall Blue and Ardent Red. Contrasting accents of gloss black feature strongly, seen across the roof, front splitter, rear diffuser and side sills.

Further black elements include black rear badging, black door mirror pods and gloss black forged wheels with a choice of either red or black brake calipers help give the ‘Sports Racer’ a more dramatic look.

Inside, the 2+2 seating option is standard, as are gunmetal dashboard panels. Elsewhere, the black leather ‘Premium Sports’ seats are trimmed with red contrast piping and stitching, with Venom Red leather with black contrast piping and stitching available as an option. As for the dash, doors and centre console, these reveive a liberal dose of Slate Grey SuedeTex with red contrast stitching.

Meanwhile, the kit bag features a host of optional extras as standard. Heading the list is the ‘Sports Pack,’ which provides switchable sports mode with sharper throttle response, increased rpm limit and sportier setting for Dynamic Performance Management (DPM), as well as a sports diffuser and cross-drilled brake discs.

There’s also the ‘Tech Pack,’ which incoroporates upgraded speakers and stereo system, DVD player, seven-inch WVGA touchscreen display, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, a tyre pressure monitoring system, cruise control and rear parking sensors. Rounding things off are electric power-fold mirrors and a reverse camera.
