BRITAIN'S latest supercar, the Lotus Evora 400, will be priced from £72,000 when it arrives in the summer.
The flagship model, which had its debut at this year's Geneva Motor Show, is the fastest production car Lotus has produced with a 0 to 60 time of 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 186mph.
Powered by an uprated version of the 3.5-litre V6 Lotus uses in the current Evora S, the new supercharged model pumps out 400 horsepower - an increase of more than 15 per cent.
The Evora 400 sits on a new aluminium chassis with a lightweight composite body that has been redesigned front and rear to give the car much more road presence.
All models are fitted with sat nav and air conditioning with trim upgrades including leather or alcantara upholstery for £2,500.
Automatic versions cost an extra £2,000 and other options include a Black Pack styling kit which adds gloss black panels to the bodywork and the central section of the rear spoiler for £1,250, lightweight alloys for £2,000 while cruise control and coloured brake callipers will cost an additional £300 each.
In tests Lotus says the new Evora has lapped its Hethel test track in Norfolk at one minute 32 seconds, six seconds quicker than the Evora S.
European deliveries are due to start in August with the car going on sale in America later in the year and in China early in 2016.
