The Lotus Evora GT Is for North America

It's the Lotus Evora GT, and it's quite lovely.

If you looked at the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette and said, "Nope not the midengine vehicle for me", and you also don't want a McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini, or any of the other exotics out there, then you should look to the aging but still lovely Lotus Evora.

But the hallmark of a good Lotus isn't just speed and power, it is all about lightness. Behind the cabin sits the Evora's familiar 3.5-liter Toyota-sourced supercharged V-6, now making 416 horsepower (six more than the Evora 410). That's 6 more horses than the Evora 410. The Carbon Pack is $10,000 extra, a titanium exhaust is $8,000 (this cuts 22 pounds from the overall mass) and a six-speed automatic transmission replaces the standard stick-shift for £2,700. Cars with the automatic transmission actually get more torque with 332 lb-ft on tap.

The new 2020 Lotus Evora GT runs 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.8 seconds and tops out at more than 200 miles per hour. A Torsen-type limited-slip differential is standard. Of that number, 49 pounds come from an optional Carbon Pack, which adds a carbon-fiber front access panel, roof panel, and one-piece louvered tailgate with an integrated spoiler and diffuser. Buyers can also choose one-inch wider rear wheels, which opens up a red color option. To stop power, AP Racing brakes with four-piston calipers front and rear, and 2-piece cross-drilled and ventilated brake discs that is larger on the front and smaller at the rear has been incorporated.

New Death Stranding footage focuses on Heartman
Heartman's heart stops every 21 minutes, and he must be revived via an AED (automated external defibrillator) each time he "dies". The footages, in fact, focus entirely on the character portrayed by filmmaker and Hideo Kojima 's friend, Nicolas Winding Refn .

Lotus says the GT produces 141 pounds of downforce, double what the 400 made.

There's the safety backup of ESP stability control - with four settings: Drive, Sport, Race and, for the bravest, Off. The latter turns off all the electronic nannies, while Sport and Race modes increase throttle response and let the rear wheels lose grip more often.

In terms of interior features, the dashboard, door panels, transmission tunnel and centre console are all trimmed in black Alcantara, complemented by contrast twin colour stitching, while bespoke leather remains an optional feature. Different paint colors and unique leather upholstery are part of the program, which Lotus says has been applied to a third of all its cars since its introduction previous year. Inside there's Alcantara and carbon fiber materials as well as a magnesium steering wheel with Alcantara and leather.
