Debuting in an unfinished forum at the Geneva Auto Show earlier this year, Lotus how now officially unveiled the Evora Cup GT4 race car at at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, CA. And judging by the tires, this car has already seen plenty of track time.
Built to compete in the FIA GT4 series in Europe, Lotus U.S.A. head Arnie Johnson confirmed that the car can be delivered in anywhere from GT4 to GT2 trim. The GT4 car on display uses a 360-hp 4.0-liter V6, but Cosworth can increase that number as high as 470-hp.
Built to run in its own Lotus Evora Cup series, it can also compete in any GT4 racing series and according to Johnson the company has already sold six of the $160,000 race cars this week.
But the most exciting news might be chatter we heard amongst some Lotus folks at the booth, indicating that Lotus will look to field the car in the Grand Am series here in North America – likely next year.
