276hp Lotus Evora debuts in Malaysia – starts from RM 443,480 up to nearly RM 500,000!

Lotus has officially launched the much anticipated Evora for the Malaysian market earlier today. It took a while for the Evora to reach our shores considering it was unveiled in 2008 during the British International Motor Show. The 2+2 mid-engined Lotus is slightly larger than the Europa which is rumored to be shelved later this year.

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 litre 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 litres 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.

Next up is the Tech Spec Edition that comprises of an upgraded audio (2x50W), DVD player, 7-inch WVGA touch screen, portable navigation unit, cruise control, rear parking sensors, tire pressure monitoring system as well as Bluetooth, USB and iPod connectivities. There is also an Alpine reverse camera.

Further up the scale is the Sport & Tech Spec Edition which combines the equipment list available with the models above. The range-topping spot is taken up by the Launch Spec Edition. It has all of the above plus accent lighting, an Evora logo on the dash, premium floor mats, more leather upholstery and a choice of four seat colours including Oyster, Charcoal, Chestnut or Paprika.

On top of the above trim levels, buyers can also optionally add a close-ratio sports gearbox, premium paint or choose between two wheel options such as Y-type 5-spoke cast alloys finished in Stealth Grey or 10-spoke forged alloys in either Hi-Power Silver or Gloss Anthracite. The base Sport Spec will set you back RM443,480.00 while the Tech Spec and Sport & Tech Spec versions are priced at RM463,650.00 and RM472,110.00 respectively. The top-of-the-line Launch Spec can be yours for RM490,210.00.

As always, an image gallery can be found after the jump. There is also a special compilation video of the Evora released by Lotus.

        Yes, Lotus engineering is super excellent… but admit that they are just bad at putting cars together… that’s all…

        so for a Lotus, nice to look at, nice to drive but not nice to own at all…. ;-)

          The cars like the GTR and the like are in a different class. In terms of performance they may be way better than this Evora. They may be lots cheaper too. But then to the Evora buyer, this is not the most important aspect in the purchase decision. It is also not important who gets to smoke who at the traffic lights. It is called arriving in a car that costs that much.

          It is to say, ‘I’ve made it in life!’. So, the performance figures while important to anyone buying a car costing that much, is not the one and only criteria. It is the heritage behind the brand. The value of a sought after car because it has a strong heritage behind it. This will not be appreciated by the GTR or other class of sport car buyer as their criteria is completely different. They want something that can beat the Porsches and Ferraris and cost a fraction of the price. Yes we have all seen how the Supra smoked the Ferrari in Fast n Furious. Nope, the Ferrari buyer is not the least bothered about it. Same for the Evora buyer cos that is not what is important to the owner.

          So, as I mentioned earlier, this car may not appeal to those looking for just pure performance. It is made for those who want something finer in life.

        Why want to tax so high, while u want ur people to support Proton & Lotus? If the price is cheaper, i would believe that Lotus cars will sell even more in Malaysia. Which is a win-win situation..

        But seeing the G want to bangkrap de, i think they have no choice but to apply AP & Tax high-high to own a Lotus…

    • doesnt matter owned by who, as long as it is not develop or produce here, it should be taxed high. if a car company owned by Israeli but develop or produce car here, then it should be no tax or minimal tax, since it already provides job opportunities for local people.

      so for those calling for cheap car, ask the manufacturer to produce or at least assemble the car here, not by calling the gov to reduce tax (this is plain stupid selfish act)

          Yup. this is where brand value separates the cars. It is not purely about performance. If this were the case, why don’t every person who can afford a Porsche Turbo buy an average eastern car and mod it to have Porsche beating performance? Clearly, these cars are meant for the more matured and they are also to highlight that the owner has made it is life. It is a status symbol.

        the 335i sport century sprint is 5 seconds flat , the evora can drift on all four wheels but considering the tyre prices and the fact that you have to travel all the way to a track to have fun, cost is big factor…
        Plus the beemer is more practical..
        but in the UK where evora is 50K pounds , it is a big issue there too…

      …and people who keep comparing it with GTR, BMW M3 whatever, Evo and Scooby should read and understand this. Evora was never about power in the first place. It is about handling and how it can be driven on field of daffodils without breaking your spine (as Jeremy Clarkson said).

      Unless they come out with Lotus Evora Cup Racer with juicy 400bhp.

    sub 500k is actually quite cheap. This is an expensive car, even in the UK. almost 60000 pounds with all the options in(about 300k ringgit, without tax, transportation etc). The basic model (don’t even have rear seats!) in the UK is priced at 48k pounds.

    Compare that to similarly paced cars such as a porche, the cheapest cayman is much more than half a million ringgit. A BMW M3, which is around 50k in the UK, will set you back 700k here. Lamborghini Gallardo (yes, the evora is at least as fast!) is 1.5M.

    So, if it is the price that people is complaining about then don’t bacause this car is dirt cheap for it’s species. It probably is not as well made as a Porche (it’s German), but an actual (gorgeous looking) sports car for less than half a million ringgit, that is a decent proposition in my book.

      Actually some Malaysians are stupid.. Juz becoz Proton owns Lotus, price must be cheaper?? What kind of logic is that?? Just becoz Proton ciplak some of Lotus design so that Proton car looks a bit upmarket.. suddenly Lotus design becomes lousy??

      Aren’t these people tired of “Made in Malaysia or Own By Malaysia” bashing? Eventho some Malaysian made stuff needs quality improvement – the complains must be channelled in a proper manner and with aim “to improve” not “to make joke or ridicule”. Wake up lah Malaysians, if Malaysians are not proud of Malaysian achievements, who will?

      I’ve always wanted a sportscar. Can’t afford it at the moment coz I need to use the $$ for something more important ..

        As Proton own Lotus, it should our pride to own Lotus sport car at a reasonable prices..

        It is also a win-win situation for our people to support Lotus, which in turn also give Proton more revenue as both also are own by the G? Sadly, they never saw this and their try to aim Lotus as one of those high-price sport cars.. Which in the end, will scare a lot of future owners from owning them..

    Bros….Different cars are meant for different purpose….

    If you say about GTR, its more about power…..

    But EVORA is more about handling and cornering….

    Different la, different people like different style….

    You can’t compare Rooney and Terry right?

    One is a striker , the other is a defender….

    All i can say, both cars are good….

    Also, in racing or even driving….

    Power/Torque are not everything….Superb handling and cornering are more important.

    Do you guys know that even EVO8 can match Lamborghini….

      i agreed that evora is about handling and cornering..but i disagreed about GTR..it is about handling and cornering as well..mind that…both were great in cornering…

      it depends on how u appreciate the car..if u prefer the evora..just go for it..it is still reasonable for the fun sport car…it is not a supercar…

      but…if i can afford the 500k tag car..in between evora and gtr, i’ll go for the recond gtr, at least more practical in term of the space and the number of seat, plus still uve got the best thing that they offered as well in evora..the HANDLING…btw..just my thought..

      evora is a nice car…ive seen this car a few times..it is so sexy…one of the best looking sports car out there..

      btw…that is not an ordinary evo 8..it is FQ series..so yeah..it is logic…thats why it can tailgate the murcie….

    For some who said Jeremy Clarkson says this is a good car,of course lah.He is a Brit,and

    Just look at the build quality.IT is atrocious.Even from the pics you can see the signal indicator is build from low quality plastic,the gaps on the steering wheel column is uneven.

    Oh wait,did someone say this is a SUPERCAR? Hmmm..270+ hp and you are telling me this is a super car? Even BMW M5 which has 500hp also not categorized as super car lah.So Lotus is smart,put a stupid engine in a metal shell that LOOKS like a supercar shell,and sell it!

    Some comments here just shows how shallow people here are.

    1) Price is a stupid comparison factor as all cars here are taxed and AP silly and no way representative of thier actual value. FWIW, 500k is “cheap” for an imported sports car in comparisonm especially if you look at the prices of the Evora vs its competitors in UK.

    2) Lotus fit and finish. They have been lousy at that for ages. Its also hand built. What were you expecting?

    3) Toyota engine. Nothing wrong with that. If you have driven any Toyota’s with that engine you’d forgive its rather lowly on paper power output. It is very smooth, very efficient and very clean running.
    Power has never been Lotus’ selling point. They have been shifting lots of Elises with Rover K series engines that most to us wont bat an eye over.

    Besides, I reckon that Lotus would not want to over power the Evora. They still have the next Esprit to take on the German and Italian supercars.

      yes 500k is ‘cheap’ for an imported sports car relative to Cayman etc in Malaysia….

      but Lotus is selling Elise for RM238k (GBP25-28k), Exige for RM3xxk (GBP35-40k), and now Evora for RM4xxk (GBP50k)…. i guess, based on your comment, if you spent that much money on a car, you no longer have any right to question its fit and finish or reliability?

      and may be for you, your decisions are based on your heart alone and not with your head… of course, if that is the only way we make our decisions, most people would have already bought Lotuses, Alfas and all the eccentric brands where you will buy only because of your “passion” for those cars!!!!

      bear in mind… UK price also include the local taxes and excise duties such as VAT already (GST equivalent)… so if you take all that amount out to come to the cost price of the car and add back Malaysia astronomical taxes, AP etc…. surely you wont come to RM240k for an Elise, let alone RM450-490k for an Evora with average fit and finish…. people expect premium or luxury at this end of the scale… and to add insult to injury… the GBP currency is actually “cheaper” now at GBP1=RM4.82 yesterday… so i bet Proton & Lotus won’t be passing that exchange savings to customers, would they?

      Lotus can’t survive on heritage alone, they need to make cars that more enthusiasts (old and new) will buy…… judging by this, not suprising the Evora is slow selling (refer Autocar news and comment on Lotus recently announced new directions) …

    but cant blame the mindset, with the crazy car price in malaysia seems like everyone is trying to squeeze every horsepower with every penny they have… if thats the case, buy a proton wira, put evo3 engine +bigger turbo+bigger intercooler+bigger everything and u can drive a 600hp monster for less than 50k…

    cant agree more with an earlier comment, if a lotus is sold on the cheap… it will no longer be exclusive. so an lv bag is 5k, a pasar malam bag is rm50… doesnt mean u can store more with the lv bag, no? so there’s a price for everything… question is are you willing to pay?

      Proton does own Lotus but this is a CBU model from the UK, which means that it has to go through the same taxes that other cars do. This is not a Malaysian made sports car.

      As for Gen 2 being sold overseas at the same price, yeah, that’s true but the specs are the same as here. Seems like the specs are better because they don’t offer the barebones model internationally.

      Your life is as important as you put your own value to it. If you’re not willing to buy the Hi-Line version with added safety, then you don’t care about your own life. Proton gives you the option to buy either, it’s not their fault you choose to buy the cheaper one to save more money. I understand that some people cannot afford the Hi-Line but then that is the price they have to pay. If they put in extra air bags and stuff, the price naturally goes up rite?

    In UK, its in the M5 and GTR price range, however its cheaper than both here. Some more cheaper than 7s and Sclass (although these should not be compared).
    Anyway if you gonna arrive at your office in style, choose this car or recond 2008 Sclass?
    Whatever, its your own preference…

    If 1 million of 1M’sia people can afford, I heard they can only produce 4~6k of this annually only to cater the whole world. So in short, can forget it lah…

    • This is what Cosmos said earlier regarding status and not everything about torque and power :

      “The cars like the GTR and the like are in a different class. In terms of performance they may be way better than this Evora. They may be lots cheaper too. But then to the Evora buyer, this is not the most important aspect in the purchase decision. It is also not important who gets to smoke who at the traffic lights. It is called arriving in a car that costs that much.

      It is to say, ‘I’ve made it in life!’. So, the performance figures while important to anyone buying a car costing that much, is not the one and only criteria. It is the heritage behind the brand. The value of a sought after car because it has a strong heritage behind it. This will not be appreciated by the GTR or other class of sport car buyer as their criteria is completely different. They want something that can beat the Porsches and Ferraris and cost a fraction of the price. Yes we have all seen how the Supra smoked the Ferrari in Fast n Furious. Nope, the Ferrari buyer is not the least bothered about it. Same for the Evora buyer cos that is not what is important to the owner.

      So, as I mentioned earlier, this car may not appeal to those looking for just pure performance. It is made for those who want something finer in life. Badge appeal is another thing that these buyers look for. They don’t want a brand that also sells cars that are priced low enough for everyone to buy. Imagine you owning a GTR and the Latio owner pulls up. Same brand right? To them, this may not be acceptable. It is in the psychology of buying cars. They don’t want a brand that can be enjoyed by everyone. Again, this is all about status and nothing at all about who is going to smoke who.”

    They are all good cars though, don’t get me wrong. It is just what is more important to the buyer. An Evora owner may also have a GTR for the times he feels like smoking everyone around him but may use the Evora for a dinner event at Istana Negara for instance.

    Lotus priced so expensive because the salary of their mangement
    is like maintaining the Real Mdrid team.- Exact words of CEO Dany.
    Then there is also F1 – another money sucking scheme JV with Tony F..
    Lotus is a loss making co and will remain so in the next few years.

      inaccurate as the f1 team only borrows the name of Lotus.

  • This car are sold only for the “Ubah Gaya Hidup” leaders, political warlords and some spoil brat of a corrupted vip son (so he can shack all the girls in town). Afterall Malaysia gonna be bankrupt in 2019, might as well use up all the rakyat’s money before its too late.

  • Lotus is usually an expensive car but it is fun to drive in terms of performance and handling…

    Buying at 440k ++ (inclusive +/- 150% tax bracket). My question is where did this 150% tax went to? To subsidies fuel, that is fair but why gov still complain they are running deficit? No one query on this? Somemore KL road is like driving on kampung road already… pot holes and uneven road here and there.

    Nice car…Porche Caymen as a rival..its a good rival for lotus..first car for everyday use less grandprix.

    no doubt lotus handling is no 1 but the engine may effect the the Brand because for supercar “speed is everything..be the fastest may help to stand up against big name such as ferrari and lamborghini,..not to mention pagani and boggati..

    oh, please.. it’s a toyota engine for God sake. So if Lotus decided to put a kancil engine you still say.. “it’s heritage, history value & brand name for status symbol..” Porsche make their own engine & read the history, porsche came to F1 before lotus did.. Clearly you haven’t been in the motorsport scene.. lotus is just a chasis / body. Track cars are even lighter than this lotus. Why do u think nissan targeted the 911 turbo in designing their gtr?
