Lotus have unveiled the Lotus Evora S and Evora IPS ahead of an official release at this years Paris Motorshow.

The Lotus Evora S and IPS (which stands for “Intelligent Precision Shift” or “automatic transmission” in layman’s terms) will nicely fill out the Evora range, and we’re aching to get our hands on the former. The Evora S comes with a set of standard 19 inch alloys or an optional 19/20 inch set at an extra cost both in money and economy figures.

The Lotus Evora s is powered by Toyota-sourced 3.5-liter V6 engine. Overall, it provides 345 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque – gains of 69 hp and 37 lb-ft standard model, allowing 0-60 mph in just 4.6s and an increased top speed of 172mph. Torque is up to 400 Nm. In addition to this, a sport pack is included as a standard feature. It includes a sport button which allows the driver to control throttle response and activate the exhaust by-pass valve, an instantaneous increase for the rev limiter at the touch of a button and changes to the dynamic stability control settings.

Lotus is also offering the Evora IPS featuring both fully automatic and manual shift modes. The Lotus Evora IPS essentially adds an automatic box to the standard Evora. Retaining the same 280 hp 3.5l V6, Lotus have added an automatic 6-speed gearbox with Lotus developed transmission control. The new box offers both manual paddle shift and automatic drive modes both with ‘sport’ modes also included.
