Lotus Evora 400 Places 2nd in Road & Track’s Performance Car of the Year Category
Beating the best rival performance cars that Europe can muster, the acclaimed Lotus Evora 400 has seized second in Road & Track’s celebrated Performance Car of the Year for 2017.
Shunning indirect and stilted systems, the Lotus Evora 400 utilises intelligent engineering to deliver a pure and intuitive driving experience. Lighter, faster and drastically more dynamic than its predecessor, the Evora 400 bested the rest of the Europeans to impress the Road & Track judges and force the final decision to the line – just missing out on first place.
Reserved for the best of the best, the annual Road & Track fixture sees only the finest cars compete. Be it measured by outright speed, acceleration or handling: each year the specially selected finalists have been genuine driving giants.
Lotus Cars returned in the North American sports car market earlier this year, with the Evora 400, to critical acclaim. Demonstrating a very real desire for the lightweight and powerful cars which Lotus is world famous for, the Evora 400 was hailed by press and media as a landmark model.
With a heritage of intelligent engineering that spans seven decades, no other car manufacturer can claim a better track record when it comes to honing road and race cars. In its 68th year, Lotus still remains true to the ethos of the company’s founder Colin Chapman, and his approach to design construction and ‘added lightness’.
