The Lotus Evora Sport 410 is a high-performance version of the Lotus Evora 2+2 sports coupe.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 is the result of Lotus’ philosophy of continuous improvement. With a lower centre of gravity, and a kerb weight slashed to just 2921 lb (1325 kg), the car provides an impressive 309 hp/tonne, and builds on the achievements of the excellent Evora 400. In addition to boosting straight-line speed, the significant reduction in mass has allowed sharper, more agile and intuitive handling - with even greater accuracy and feel.
Complementing the weight savings is a higher-output version of the supercharged, 3.5-litre 6-cylinder engine, developed through the Lotus 3-Eleven project which has beaten Nürburgring records. As a result, the car boasts 410 hp (306 kW) at 7000 rpm and 310 ft·lb (420 N·m) of torque at 3500 rpm.
The high-performance, carbon fibre components have played the single biggest role in the evolution of the Evora Sport 410. These include front splitter, roof panel, tailgate, and rear diffuser as well as race-derived sports seats and a revised front access panel. The one-piece carbon tailgate incorporates a louvered section, inspired by some of Lotus’ most-famous heritage models, and together with carbon rear quarter-light panels help provide the car with a sleeker, fastback-style trailing roofline. These changes have also improved the car’s aerodynamic downforce by 15% with no increase in drag.
The car’s reduced kerb weight has allowed the recalibration of the suspension, with improved geometry and completely revised damping, as well as a ride height 5mm lower than the Evora 400. As a result, handling is sharper, along with better body and roll control, yet ride comfort and composure is retained. Ultra light-weight, 10-spoke forged aluminium wheels, and optional Michelin Cup 2 tyres, complete the car’s dynamic revisions.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 is currently the highest-ranked Class B car in terms of MAX+PRO ranking (assuming no Elite tuning of any car), at 1695. It has a starting rank of 1307 (shared with the Mercedes-AMG GT3 due to having identical starting top speed and nitro stats), a MAX rank of 1549, and a Tuning Kit boost of +50.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 is a lightweight car that has a high rate of acceleration due to its high nitro stat. Its performance is built on that of the Savage Rivale GTR, albeit more nitro-efficient and with a slightly lower total speed.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410's acceleration, while not the best in its class, is still very fast, as it accelerates to its maximum speed faster than the Falcon F7 and Kepler Motion. As the Evora Sport 410 has a high nitro stat, despite gaining more speed from upgrading the top speed than upgrading the nitro, it is somewhat lacking, as it can only top out at 237.8 mph (383.0 km/h) at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit. The Evora Sport 410 is much more nitro-efficient than normal, with 6/10/16.
Keeping true to the Evora Enduro GT, the Evora Sport 410 boasts responsive and sharp handling/drifting capabilities, although due to its low top speed stat, it isn't as fast as most other Class B cars ranked above 1660 when drifting. Even then, the Evora Sport 410 has no difficulty clearing difficult curves like Sector 8's infamous 495° ending turn. In the Evora's R&D event, though, players would need to be careful when using this car with an upgraded rank close to MAX+PRO, though, as the car was far more likely to randomly skid at MAX+PRO when compared to stock, especially in Tokyo.
The Lotus Evora Sport 410 has a total speed of 282.2 mph (454.4 km/h) at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit; while higher than the McLaren MP4/8's 278.6 mph (448.7 km/h), the MP4/8 has far better acceleration and handling to make up for this difference in total speed.
Unfortunately, due to the car's low top speed and slower acceleration compared to the McLaren MP4/8, the Lotus Evora Sport 410 is merely a collector's item. At MAX+PRO, the Evora Sport 410 is unable to effectively take on the Class B kings, not even the TVR Sagaris and Lamborghini Estoque (in most cases). At best, the Evora Sport 410 can only compete with the Lamborghini Asterion and Savage Rivale GTR.
In Multiplayer, even the best Multiplayer-friendly upgrade configurations available do not offer the Lotus Evora Sport 410 competitiveness against the Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS, McLaren MP4/8, and Aston Martin Vulcan. An upgrade configuration of 0505 5555, which gives a rank of B1598, gives a total speed of 282.2 mph/454.4 km/h, which isn't much of a saving grace considering that the BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage and even the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari are capable of better performance at a similar rank. Another upgrade configuration of 0505 5050 gives a rank of B1525 and a total speed of 274.1 mph/441.5 km/h, which again isn't much of a saving grace when compared to other similarly-ranked cars despite being better than the Sbarro Alcador and Kepler Motion at this rank. The Evora Sport 410 is superior over the Asterion between rank 1450 and rank 1670, making the Evora Sport 410 basically a slightly upgraded Asterion in MP.
Below is a list of upgrade configurations useful for multiplayer:
- 0400 3050 = 250.2 mph/402.9 km/h @ B1415
- 0500 5051 = 261.7 mph/421.3 km/h @ B1457
- 0504 5053 = 273.1 mph/439.8 km/h @ B1522
- 0505 5050 = 274.1 mph/441.5 km/h @ B1525
- 0505 5555 = 282.2 mph/454.4 km/h @ B1598 - This is the highest possible tuning for the Evora Sport 410, after which it is not recommended for use in MP.
According to internal game files, the Lotus Evora Sport 410 has a buying price of 7,250, making it the most expensive tokens-purchasable Class B car in the game. Alternatively, the car can be assembled for 10 Legendary-rarity Lotus Evora Sport 410 BP cards. Assembling the Evora takes 10 hours but can be skipped for 390. The car costs 1,694,850 or 12,260 to max out and 1,399,010 for Pro Kits; the latter also requires 14 of each Class B Parts card, 16 V6 Engines, 10 Initial Tech cards, 10 Early Tech cards, and 20 Mid-Tech cards.
Starting from April 25, 2017, the Lotus Evora Sport 410 was made permanently available in the Garage.
