The Lotus Evora GTE was built in more recent years to permit it’s racing variant to be able to race under the GT3 and LM GTE regs.

Based on the Evora floorpan but with an extra track width of 110mm the car was designed to have a lower centre of gravity, to be lighter and faster. Powered by the 3.5 litre supercharged V6 engine shared by the other Evora and Exige variants but having been re-worked and tuned by Swindon Race Engines. This process involves major engine strengthening, forged pistons, con rods, higher lift camshafts and a specially re-worked exhaust system making this a very lively engine producing an astonishing 438hp, making it the most powerful Lotus under production, with a standing start to 60 mph in a, astonishing 4 seconds. The throttle response is immediate.

Combine this with a kerb weight of just 1277 kgs and.......well it goes with out saying!

Although having had the capacity to build more, just 20 GTE’s and 1 Race Car were built at Hethel, majority with the IPS semi-auto box and LHD formation although a small number of RHD models and a small number in Manual Transmission were built too.

They were all sold before they were built and once Lotus reached the required figures for the GT3 regs production of this amazing car ceased.

Well, nearly!

More parts were produced than were necessary to complete the requisite 20 cars. Due to its special relationship with Lotus Stratton Motor Company entered into the deal to take on the remaining stock of parts and bodies to be able to produce five more cars, all hand built by Stratton Motor Company to a unique spec and labelled the ‘Lotus Stratton GT’ under the direction of it’s owner and racing enthusiast Roger Bennington.

These five cars have now completed the meticulous build and are ready to go to new homes.

Each is powered by the same 438 bhp 3.5 litre V6 ‘Eaton’ supercharged charge cooled engine but are now supplied with the manual version of the gearbox that was found in the original GTE’s.

Each has it’s own individual colour scheme and specification although nearly all are loaded with metres of weight saving carbon fibre to squeeze just that little bit more in terms of performance whilst also adding to the kerb appeal.

Truly individual cars, hand built by Stratton’s team of experts these cars will never be repeated and even as new cars, surely, already have a place in British motoring history.

Metallic Bronze. Production No: 2 (Reg: AU17ATO) This car was designed and built specifically for the Artist and Rapper Swizz Beats as part of Group Lotus's collaboration with the artist in 2012. Now is your chance to own a piece of motoring history.
