Anyone on here? :D

The Evora GTE is tucked in for its last few nights with us before it heads home with its new owner. Don't worry, you're not going far...

OK - please just put this down as pure ignorance from a Colonial  ..... but with only 20 GTEs in the world, and none on this side of the pond, can someone either tell me, or direct me, to what are the differences that make a GTE?  Obviously, it's wider and different than a Mansory body kit.   Big wing in the back, centre locking hubs and unique wheels, 440 HP engine, new vents in the hood (bonnet), air vents around the wheel wells, fairings around the engine and engine bay air intakes, side skirts, and a unique sequential gear box.  Have I missed anything?   Was there a typical or standard interior?  Is the suspension/ set-up different?

Man I love these cars .... still more special than the 400, and even those aren't in North America yet!

Thanks for your patience ....

Thanks for your reply Simon.   Certainly a very attractive looking car!

They were rebuilt from prototype status using the stock Evora S drivetrain and, for the most part, the Sports Racer interior. Some, including mine were then tuned from Komotec to 430 HP.

Front suspension has custom wishbones for a wider track, the rear track widened through custom rims. There are actually very many differences to the stock Evora S both exterior and interior, including a high percentage of carbon parts.

You can find them all on the registry:  https://www.lotusregister.com Oh, and 50% of the owners are here on TLF!

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!

To be crystal clear - there are two different Boy kits from Mansory, different width / parts.

Hi Thomas, I'm interested in the Komotec 430 kit but I'm not sure if the IPS on my car can handle it. What do you think?

I believe its OK,  but it is probably best is to ask Daniel at Komotec. My GTE has the manual gearbox.
