More details on new Lotus Evora and Exige S

05 Mar 2009



For the 2010 Model Year Lotus Exige S, Lotus has reduced the emissions to only 199 g/km CO2 and increased the fuel economy to an impressive 8.5 litres/100 km on the Official European Combined Cycle and a frugal 6.5 litres/100 km on the Official European Extra Urban Cycle.

It has a restyled front end and new larger, rear wing that not only reduces drag, but also gives a more muscular stance, enhancing the lightweight shrink-wrapped look of the whole car. The composite rear wing is based on the design from the Exige GT3 road car concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007.

Compared to the 2009 Model Year Exige tailgate mounted wing it is 181 mm wider and mounted 46 mm higher and 61 mm further back. It is attached to the rear bodyshell clam via rear end plates which not only increases the stiffness of the whole structure but also ensures that as much of the airflow as possible passes over the rear wing.

This careful airflow management increases stability, reduces drag and, most importantly, maintains the impressive downforce figures of 42 kg at 160 km/h.

The restyled front end includes a larger, more angular air intake mouth to help funnel more air through the radiator, to improve the efficiency of the engine system. Ahead of the front wheels on either side of the main aperture, two larger air intakes increase the airflow to the twin oil coolers. Horizontal vanes bisect these oil cooler air-intakes to stabilise the airflow to further increase the cooling efficiency.

Since the Exige S2 was launched in 2004, the power has increased from 190 hp through 220 hp to 240 hp in standard road form - more for the track-centric Exige Cup 260 - and the new larger air intakes improve engine cooling for these current higher powered Exige variants.

Mounted below the three new air intakes is a new aerodynamic splitter for the 2010 Model Year Exige. Made from a lightweight composite, the splitter is now extended to wrap around the whole of the front end and chiseled side lips are raised to deflect air around the tyres to reduce drag.

Various performance packages are also available as cost options.

The Exige S Sport pack includes:

• Bilstein sports dampers
• Traction control
• Adjustable front anti-roll bar
• T45 roll bar, with integrated harness mounts


The Exige S Performance Pack - more punch, more ability for Exige S

• 308 mm front cross-drilled and vented discs with AP Racing four piston callipers
• Uprated front and rear brake pads
• Full length upsized roof scoop
• Variable slip traction control
• Uprated clutch plate and cover
• Uprated vehicle performance through enhanced power and torque delivery
• Launch control


With the Exige performance pack, the power is raised to 240 PS / 179 kW (minimum) at 8,000 rpm courtesy of a Magnuson/Eaton M62 supercharger, new faster flowing injectors and higher torque clutch system and an upsized roof scoop to feed more air to the supercharger intercooler system.

This hike in power, together with an increase in torque to 230 Nm at 5,500 rpm from the standard 215 Nm at 5500 rpm, helps whisk the Performance Pack Exige S from zero to 60mph in 4.5 secs and 0-100km/h in 4.77 secs, and on to 100mph in 11.97 secs. Top speed rises to 145 mph.

The Performance Pack option also includes an uprated clutch and a clutch damper, thicker, 308 mm diameter cross-drilled and vented discs at the front, clamped by AP Racing four-piston callipers, and the standard brake pads are replaced by uprated pads.

Keen to pass on lessons learned on the track with the Exige GT3 racing programme, Lotus Sport has included a launch control system, along with variable traction control.

From the driver's seat the track orientated launch control allows you to determine the engine revs you wish to use during a standing start on the track. Having programmed that limit, it will not be exceeded when you then hold down the throttle and sidestep the clutch at departure from the line.

The clutch damper cushions the severity of the clutch / transmission engagement to minimise the stresses to the drivetrain (noting that continuous abusive standing start applications will destroy the drivetrain components). The launch control also keeps wheelspin at bay until 6 mph, after which the traction control assumes its duties.

As with launch control, you can dial in the amount of traction control you require from the driver's seats, altering it on the move to suit driving style and the characteristics of particular corners. The amount of traction control can be varied in over 30 increments from an optimum 7 percent tyre slip to completely off. The message display in the new instrument pack displays what degree of traction control you have currently dialled in.

The 2010 Model Year Exige S will enter the EU markets in May 2009.



The Lotus Evora

The first 450 cars, known as the Lotus Evora Launch Edition, will be built to a high level standard specification which include:

• 2+2 seating configuration
• Tech Pack
• Premium Pack
• Sport Pack
• Hi-power silver cast alloy wheels
• Bi-Xenon Headlamps
• Alpine Imprint Audio System
• Reversing Camera
• Electric Powerfold Mirrors


The Launch Edition includes either Ardent Red or British Racing Green as standard, and all other colours from the Lotus range are available as a cost option.

Following on from these first 450 Lotus Evora Launch Edition sports cars, customers will have the opportunity to spec to a more personal level - but of course they will not be part of the select few who will be among the first to own Britain's latest sports car and one of the most anticipated cars of the year, complete with a unique Evora commemorative build plate in the cabin.

Designed for people who desire sports car characteristics of stunning design, exclusivity, dramatic proportions and performance, the Lotus Evora will enter the sports car market as the only mid-engined 2+2 in production.

Powered by a 3.5-litre V6 producing 276 hp and 342 Nm of torque, the new car employs innovative lightweight chassis technology to ensure all-round dynamic performance, in keeping with the great Lotus tradition.

Straight line performance is spectacular, with the zero to 100 km/h sprint taking place in just over 5 seconds with a top speed of over 260 km/h (prototype figures). Economy and emissions figures are class leading with the Official European Combined Cycle fuel economy being just 8.7 litres / 100 km and the emissions being just 205 g / km CO2. The other fuel economy figures are equally impressive with Official European Urban Cycle figures of 12.4 litres / 100 km and 6.5 litres / 100 km for the Official European Extra Urban Cycle.

As well as being sold in a 2+2 configuration, the Evora will also be available as a two-seater, the space in the rear being allocated to luggage storage. Other derivatives are also planned for the long term future, including a convertible and a version with automatic transmission.

Build volumes are expected to ramp up steadily over the next few months with a target of 34 Lotus Evoras being made each week by July 2009. This manufacturing volume is in addition to the current build volume for Lotus small car platform vehicles (Elise, Exige, Europa and 2-Eleven) of 44 per week building to 55-60 per week in the run up to the northern hemisphere summer.

Re: More details on new Lotus Evora and Exige S

The G25 can really shift to 6 gears? or the gear pattern just for show, actually only up and down.
been eyeing that for long time also, with the PS3. sighs.. but can't afford.
