Lotus Evora IPS option

As we already mentioned from that leaked e-mail that Lotus has 'accidentaly' sent us a while ago, the Lotus Evora S is not the only novelty that awaits its unveiling at the Paris Motor Show, there is also the automatic Lotus Evora, an option which is called the IPS, which stands for Intelligent Precision Shift.

The Lotus Evora IPS option or the 6-speed automatic gearbox applies to the 3.5-litre V6 that produces 280 PS and 350 Nm of torque and which this times needs 5.3 seconds to sprint from nought to 60 mph, with a maximum top speed clocked at 155 mph.

The Lotus Evora IPS option enables combined fuel consumption figures of 8.8-litres per 100 Km and CO2 emissions of 208 g/Km.

Lotus press release :

But that’s not all. In addition to the Evora S, Lotus also presents the IPS (Intelligent Precision Shift) option. This inception of the seven-time-award-winning (who’s counting? We are!) Evora sees an automatic 6-speed gearbox with Lotus developed transmission control with a 3.5 l V6 engine delivering 280 PS assuring a superior automatic driving experience.

The IPS version of the Evora allows the driver to switch between manual paddle shift and automatic drive modes. The driver also has the option of selecting ‘sport’ mode which showcases the Lotus sport driving experience allowing the driver to really feel each gear shift and be in complete control of the transmission.



Commenting on the development Dany Bahar said: “The Evora IPS is set to broaden the appeal of the Evora and reach out to a slightly different market. We hope it will be popular with established automatic locations such as Asia, the Middle East and the US. It’s been a long time since Lotus created an automatic and we’ve spent a great deal of time refining this one to make sure that it perfectly complements the Evora drive experience.”
