The all-new 2020 Lotus Evora GT replaces the previously available Evora 400, and when fully optioned, it weighs just 3104 pounds while capable of accelerating to 60 mph in a mere 3.8 seconds, making it the fastest model yet to hit North America. Pricing starts at $96,250, which can quickly rise with expensive options, but at the core, it’s powered by a Toyota-sourced supercharged 3.5-liter V-6 generating 416 hp, an increase of 16 hp from the Evora 400, mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmissions.

Lotus claims the GT produces 141 pounds of downforce, double what the Evora 400 made. You also get a new front splitter, vents over the front wheel arches, a revamped rear bumper with larger vents, and a new rear diffuser. The front fenders, rear bumper, and side skirts are all manufactured from lightweight carbon fiber as standard, while an optional $10,000 Carbon Pack adds a front hood panel, roof, rear bumper and diffuser, and a one-piece louvered engine cover and redesigned rear spoiler, thus saving 49 pounds.
You can order the GT in either a two-seat or a two-plus-two configuration, complete with standard alacantra Sparco race seats, dashboard, center console, door panels, transmission tunnel, and steering wheel. The GT also comes equipped with a 7.0-inch infotainment screen running Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and navigation.
