Lotus Evora GTE Road Car To Debut At Pebble Beach

News I By John Beltz Snyder I August 15, 2011
Before its debut on Wednesday, August 17 at Pebble Beach, Lotus is teasing the Evora GTE Road Car Concept. Based on the GTE racecar, this concept is meant to feel at home on the circuit or on public roads.
 
The Evora GTE Road Car Concept has a 420-horspower engine, sequential racing gearbox, ultra-lightweight forged allow wheels, and Pirellis P-Zero Corsa tires. Beyond that, we’ll have to wait until later in the week for more details about this special concept.
 
Read on for the official press release.
 
 
World Premiere of the new Lotus Evora GTE Road Car Concept
 
The new Lotus Evora GTE Road Car Concept will be unveiled to the world for the first time within the Lotus exhibit at the McCall’s Motorworks Revival event Wednesday night, August 17, at the Monterey Jet Center.
 
The Lotus Evora GTE is a race car developed with a single-minded aim to be successful in the new global motorsport GTE category, which includes the world famous Le Mans 24 Hours.
 
To celebrate this ground breaking car, Lotus has built the race-inspired Evora GTE Road Car Concept. This high-strung Evora elicits over 420 bhp from its race-developed engine, fed through a sequential AMT racing gearbox and put to the pavement through ultra-lightweight forged alloy wheels with center-lock hubs shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.
 
The Evora GTE Road Car Concept isn’t merely a paint scheme or homage to a race car – this is a serious race car that makes for a very serious road car.
 
The Evora GTE Road Car Concept will later be shown within the Lotus exhibit on Peter Hay Hill near The Lodge at Pebble Beach Thursday, August 18 through mid-day Saturday, August 20 before being moved onto the Concept Car Lawn for display throughout the remainder of the Concours weekend.
