Lotus Evora 400 Launched in Malaysia for Just under RM600,000
Lotus Cars Malaysia today is proud to introduce the new Lotus Evora 400 to the Malaysian market. This latest pure and focused supercar combines a high performance car with the legendary Lotus benchmark handling.
“We are glad that the Lotus Evora 400 has entered the Malaysian market as it is the fastest road-going Lotus car that we have ever produced. This car delivers not only a supercar look but definitely supercar performance as well,” said Dato’ Abdul Harith Abdullah, CEO of PROTON Holdings Berhad.
Being much faster and dynamically more capable than the previous Lotus Evora, this model leads to greater agility and a more involving drive. The Evora 400 has a maximum speed of 300km/h and accelerates to 100km/h from a standstill in 4.2 seconds. This means it goes round Lotus’ Hethel test track 7 seconds faster than its predecessor.
Over two-thirds of the Lotus Evora 400 is new, including its supercharged and charge-cooled mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine which produces 400 hp and 410Nm of torque. A new aluminium chassis incorporates a new interior and the lightweight composite body has changed significantly both front and rear.
Following the core values of the company, not only is the new Lotus Evora 400 faster than the previous model but its overall kerb weight has been reduced by 42kg, achieved through careful and clever design and attention to detail. This weight reduction is even more impressive considering the supercar has more power and a higher standard specification than before which further enhances its appeal.
The car comes with a 3-year factory warranty, 2 years free maintenance service, 1 time free entry to the Lotus Driving Academy and 1 year Lotus Owner’s Club Membership. Prices start at RM597,999.
