The sexy 124 boasts a race-tuned Toyota V6 engine with upwards of 400 PS.
Lotus has unveiled the Evora Type 124 Endurance Racecar at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Built to demonstrate the Evora's "performance, efficiency and durability under tough and demanding endurance race conditions", the car will debut at the ADAC Nürburgring 24 Hours.
In order to be a legitimate FIA racer, Lotus outfitted the Evora with a 120 liter ATL fuel system, a full roll cage, and a six-speed sequential paddle shift racing gearbox. Other changes include the addition of a carbon fiber rear wing, a massive rear diffuser and a discreet front splitter. The company also removed 200 kg (441 lbs) of weight, which allows the racer to tip the scales at 1200 kg / 2646 lbs (depending on race regulations).
Power comes from a race-tuned Toyota V6 engine with upwards of 400 PS (also depending on race regulations). For comparison, the standard V6 only turns out 280 PS and 342 Nm of torque.
Regardless of how it performs, the Evora looks like a winner on and off the track.
