Lotus Evora GTE
|Private or Trade||Trade (Official Lotus Dealer)|
The exceptional Lotus Evora GTE 6 speed automatic with paddle shift offered for sale at Hofmanns is build number 14/20 and has covered just 5800 miles with one private owner and a full Lotus service history. Finished in Metallic White and with black Leather Recaro seats and contrast red piping/stitching this particular car is truly stunning. All GTE’s were offered with an array of carbon fibre options with No 14 being generously lavished with carbon: front splitter, front access panel, A pillars, mirror caps, roof, air intakes, sills, engine cover, rear spoiler, rear diffuser. The interior is finished in black leather with alcantara roof lining which includes A pillar trrims, with the Lotus logo in the headrests again embroidered in red. The carbon fibre continues, covering the sill covers (with silver GTE lettering), instrument cluster top, rear bench area and floor covers. The interior is finished off with its own unique Lotus Motorsport build plaque.
The Evora GTE was a race car developed by Lotus Motorsport for the global endurance GTE category that included races such as the infamous 24 hours of Le Mans. Lotus planned to build a limited number of road cars to celebrate their Evora GTE achievement at Le Mans, housing a tuned 440bhp engine, sequential gearbox and the distinctly wider bodywork found on the race car. Sadly the project was never fully completed and production was halted with only 25-30 pre-production road cars being built. It wasn’t until 2014 under new factory management that the decision was made to completely disassemble the GTE road cars that had been made and rebuild 20 of them as a limited edition run for road use.
Each of the 20 cars were taken back to a bare chassis within the companies world famous Motorsport division, and subsequently rebuilt using the stunning GTE bodywork originally issued to them. All new subframes, suspension arms, brakes and wheels were used along with new engines, cooling systems and wiring looms throughout. All 20 cars were rebuilt using the 3.5L supercharged V6 found in the Evora S, but customers were allowed to fine tune each car to their own specification, meaning no Evora GTE is truly the same.
With only 20 Evora GTEs ever produced by Lotus, this is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of the most exquisitely specified Evora GTEs made, and as such a wonderful investment for the future.
As with all our vehicles the car will go through a comprehensive presales inspection and service by one of our Lotus experienced technicians.
All vehicles supplied through Hofmann’s have funding options available, are all warranted and part exchanges welcome.
