One year after the global unveiling of the fastest Lotus Evora ever, the Lotus Evora Sport 410 has arrived at our shores. The Evora 410 boasts more power, weighs less and is sharper around the corners compared to the standard Evora 400.
In true Pure Driving spirit, Lotus Cars Malaysia is offering the Evora 410 with a manual and automatic transmission. Powering the Evora 410 is a mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 that is slapped on with an Edelbrock supercharger to make 410 hp and 420 Nm of torque.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual with sports ratio or a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters transmission. The automatic Evora 410 will complete the century sprint in 4.1 seconds – 0.1 seconds quicker than its three-pedalled twin. Top speed however favours the manual variant at 305 km/h compared to the automatic’s 285 km/h. Only the manual Evora 410 comes with Torsen Type limited slip differential.

Tipping the scale at 1,291 kg (dry, without fluids), the Evora 410 gets a comprehensive carbon fibre package as standard. These include front splitter, roof panel, tailgate, rear diffuser and engine cover. The car now sits 5 mm closer to the ground thanks to revised suspension calibration. Malaysia-bound Evora 410 gets ultra-lightweight satin black 10-spoke forged wheels as standard, measuring 19-inch at the front and 20-inch at the rear.
Inside, the more hardcore Evora 410 ditches a number of features for additional weight savings. Items omitted include the infotainment system, cruise control and rear seats. However, you still get air-conditioning, tyre pressuring monitor system, active exhaust valve control, driver selectable ESP modes, leather upholstery, paddle shifters, engine start button, power windows and power folding wing mirrors. Still a whole lot more premium than the Cup variants Lotus has on offer.
