2013 Lotus Evora GX | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine. – The Lotus Evora has taken many forms as a race car over the past few years, starting in 2009 with the Type 124 Endurance Racer built for the FIA GT. Since then, Lotus has developed a GT4 Cup version designed for a one make series, the Evora GTE that currently competes in the GT class of the ALMS and the recently introduced Evora GTC.
Now, Lotus has released the Evora GX, a variation of the GTC tweaked to specifically meet the requirements of Grand-Am’s new GX class that will launch at the start of the 2013 race season. While the two cars are very similar, using the same lightweight carbon fiber and plexiglass bodywork, the GX version gets a thicker U.S.-spec roll cage, a revised front splitter and bumper, a standard Grand-Am rear wing, yellow headlights and a new fuel filler system. ABS and traction control have also been removed per Grand-Am regulations.

2013 Lotus Evora GX Interior. | Hot off the back of unleashing its Evora GTC racer, Lotus Racing engineers have been honing the Evora to meet the requirements of North America’s legendary sports car series, the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series. Later in the 2012 season the Evora will race under the Rolex Series’ GT rules as GX rules begin in 2013. With the Evora GX, the driving experience is even more pure, and the beefy body kit is even more aggressive.
McMahon Raceworks with Condor Motorsport have placed an order for their Evora GX, and the team led by David McMahon with Armando Trentini as lead driver and consultant, will enter the GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series. The Lotus Evora GX is a race spec model of the sports coupe that has been customized specifically for the rigors of Grand-Am racing. Among the notable new features of the Evora GX include carbon fiber doors, a roof and engine cover, plexiglass windows, and tinted headlights. The car also comes with a new race spec aero kit with new parts being fitted in including a new front splitter an bumper, a series required rear wing, and a new set of wider wheels wrapped in Continental racing tires.
The Evora’s light weight aluminum chassis, four wheel independent suspension, Eibach coil springs, Bilstein shock absorbers, AP Racing/Brembo brakes and Pirelli P-Zero performance tires combine to provide precise handling. The base Evora is powered by a Lotus-tuned and Toyota sourced 276 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine with a standard Sports Ratio six speed manual or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. The Evora S uses the same 3.5-liter V6, but a supercharger bumps horsepower to 345. Recaro sport seats, leather and aluminum interior trim, and a CD/MP3/WMA stereo system with iPod connectivity are standard.

To meet other series requirements, ABS and traction control have been removed, putting more emphasis on driver skill.
Like the GTC, carbon-fibre doors, roof and engine cover have replaced the SMC and RTM composite panels of the previous evolution GT4 Enduro, and Plexiglass replaces the polycarbonate windows in order to trim yet more weight off what is already a very light car. At 1,150kg, it tips the scales at just 10kg over the weight of the GTC model, despite being fitted with the much thicker US-spec roll cage
