We’ve seen it in the metal, at the showrooms, and now a new video posted on Lotus Cars Malaysia’s Facebook page shows the Lotus Evora 400 on a whole new level. Filmed at the Johor Circuit in Pasir Gudang, we see (and hear) the car, piloted by Tengku Djan, going fast on the track.

Likely to be the same car we saw going up Genting early last month, we get to see the Evora 400 on a more personal note on track. Launched not too long ago, two thirds of the parts in the the 2016 Lotus Evora 400 are new. This includes its new aluminium chassis and lightweight composite body with major changes at the front and back. AP Racing 370 mm composite two-piece brake discs and a limited slip differential are all also included in the mix.

It sports a Toyota-derived 3.5 litre V6 engine with an Edelbrock supercharger and a new charge cooler. In addition to that, there’s a driver-activated cat converter by-pass that will turn the exhaust into a free-flow system. In total, the Evora 400 is able to push out 400 hp and 410 Nm of torque. It goes from 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 300 km/h.

In Malaysia, the Evora 400 is available in either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic, and comes in three option packs. Prices for the manual Evora 400 starts at Base – RM597,999, Option One – RM624,999, Option Two – RM640,999. For the automatic Evora 400, prices start at Base – RM610,999, Option One – RM637,999 and Option Two – RM653,999.
