Lotus has revealed Evora GTE Limited Edition at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

It is powered by a 3.5 liter V6 with 444PS (327 kW), which is mated to a sequential AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) racing gearbox. The car also boasts lightweight, forged alloy rims with central locking fitted with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.

Lotus also cut the overall weight with 105 kg (227 lbs) over the standard Evora model.

The interior comes with lightweight Recaro seats made of carbon. There are also some other carbon elements and leather upholstery.

"The response to this model in China has been so incredible, within days we had sold out with 114 orders. In response we decided that the only logical step from a business perspective was to increase production and widen our reach.", said Group Lotus CEO Dany Bahar.

"What is unique about this car, is not just that it's a serious race car - it's a serious car. People get so excited when they see and especially hear it for the first time. It's a very special car and will appeal to a very special type of driver - and they won't be disappointed!", he fisnihed.
