Only the British could get away with saying they’re “delighted” when announcing an MSRP of $89,900, and that it’s a right proper bargain. At least that’s what Lotus is claiming with the Evora 400.
That’s just the starting price and doesn’t include dealer fees and taxes. But it does include a limited slip differential, and 14.5-inch, composite two piece brake discs from AP Racing. You’re going to need them once you get the Evora 400 all wound up.

An automatic transmission is going to set you back about $3,100. Alcantara and leather trim upgrades are even more pricey at over $3,900. Throw in light alloy wheels at another $3,100 and all of the sudden you have a six-figure sports car in your driveway.

Of course, you’re getting some bang for your buck. The 3.5-liter V6 engine produces 400 horsepower and 300 lb. ft. of torque. It’s 0-60 time is 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph.

In what I call the ongoing Americanization of automobiles, you also get air conditioning standard with the Evora 400, which hits US dealerships in December. Also standard is an infotainment system with satellite navigation.
