Lotus Racing has unveiled the Evora GTC.

Essentially an evolution of the GT4 Enduro, the GTC features carbon fiber doors, a carbon fiber roof and a carbon fiber engine cover. There's also Plexiglass windows for additional weight savings. Thanks to these modifications, the car tips the scales at 1130-1140 kg (2491-2513 lb) which is 30 kg (66 lb) lighter than the Enduro.

Besides going on a diet, the model has been equipped with wider tires and wheels, BOSCH anti-lock brakes and a traction control system.

Power is provided by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produces 450 hp (335 kW / 456 PS) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an XTRAC six-speed sequential paddle-shift transmission.

The first car was bought by McMahon Raceworks and will compete in the American Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series. The model will also be eligible to run in the British GT Championship, the VdeV Series and the CREVENTIC Endurance Races.
