Lotus Evora Race EditionA week ago Lotus delivered the Evora to the very first customer. They didn’t wait long to reveal the new race ready version of the new supercar – which has been called the Type 124 Evora. This is produced to the racing specifications for the FIA GT and it will officially be debuted next year during the Nürburgring 24 hour race.

The new Lotus Evora supercar has been designed with basic components that help to make it a very powerful vehicle using a mid engine layout and bonded aluminum. The racing version of it was made using the Toyota V6 that is able to push out more then 400 horsepower and has a new paddle shift sequential six-speed gearbox.

Because it is supposed to be race ready it is designed with a full roll cage and a fire extinguisher system. Yet, despite all of these features Lotus managed to drop some weight. They accomplished this by using the lightweight composite as well as carbon panels in place of the standard bodywork.

It is also designed with a rear wing that is able to push the suspension system to allow the car to run on a wider 18” Pirelli tires. The braking will be the Bosch ABS system that is specifically used for competitions along with a six piston AP Racing calipers. They will be supporting a factory team for 2010 and 2011.
