Lotus Evora GX Race Car Revealed
The Rolex Series’ GX class won’t kick off until 2013, but that won’t stop Lotus from entering its Evora GX in this year’s Grand-Am Rolex Series as a GT entry.
The Evora GX will make its racing debut later on in the 2012 season under the McMahon Raceworks / Condor Motorsport banner. The team, led by David McMahon and Armando Trentini, has placed an order for the Evora GX that offers a “more pure” driving experience and an even more aggressive body kit.
Similar to the GTC, the GX features carbon fiber doors, roof, and engine cover, while Plexiglass replaces the polycarbonate windows. The lightweight Evora GX weighs in at a scant 2,535 lbs, and despite having a much thicker US-spec roll cage, it’s a mere 22 lbs heavier than the GTC.
On the outside, the Evora GX has a new front splitter and bumper, along with wider wheels and flared arches. ABS and traction control have been removed in order to meet series requirements. As for performance, a new fuel filler system has been added, while the 4.0-liter V6 pushes out 440 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque through an XTRAC six-speed, sequential paddle-shift transmission for $335,000 and is built to order.

There are only four sports: bullfighting, motor racing, mountaineering, and troll hunting; all the rest are merely games.
