It seems like we get a new variant of the Lotus Evora every week now. Not that we're complaining, the Evora is one of our favorite cars for sale today. The latest hotted-up Evora, the GT430, is the company's fastest road-going model ever—but it's actually not as tough to live with as you might think.
The GT430's upgrade sheet lists like a pure supercar. It has a two-way adjustable suspension, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, forged aluminum wheels, AP Racing brakes, 430 horsepower, 550 pounds of downforce, a top speed of 190 mph, and weighs less than 2800 pounds.
But despite all those track-ready upgrades, the GT430 is actually a joy to use on the road. There's plenty of headroom, and you can even opt for Apple CarPlay. Don't like that big gaudy rear wing? Choosing the "Sport" trim deletes it, along with the front splitter. Sure, a lot of that downforce goes away, but your top speed rises to 196 mph.
got to try out the GT430 both on the track and through some B-roads, and finds out just how great Lotus can make its eight-year old flagship.
