The Lotus Evora Type 124 Endurance Racecar is a fully FIA homologated racer which passes all the regulations and safety standards required for competing in various endurance races around the world.

Based on the Evora road car the Type 124 racecar uses the same Toyota-sourced 3.5 litre V6, but output has been bumped up to 400 horsepower. The high-tech and super-stiff extruded and bonded aluminium chassis of the standard Evora proved to be perfectly suited for the racecar. But this was no happy accident as during its development the Evora roadcar was always designed with the racetrack in mind.

Overall weight of the Lotus Evora Type 124 Endurance Racecar is 1200kgs (2600 lbs), a full 200 kgs (440 lbs) lighter than the road car.

Other changes for the Type 124 include a six speed sequential paddle shift racing gearbox, full FIA specification roll cage, FIA-compliant 120 litre ATL fuel system and a FIA fire extinguisher system.

The braking system has also been upgraded to handle the punishment of hours and hours of tracktime. AP Racing 6 piston calipers feature front and rear, backed up by a race-spec Bosch ABS system. The suspension enhancements include 4-way adjustable dampers and adjustable anti-roll bars.

To improve downforce the Evora Type 124 features a carbon fibre splitter, rear diffuser, deeper sidesills, and a competition carbon fibre rear wing.

Roger Becker, Vehicle Engineering Director for Group Lotus Plc said, "Every Lotus car is designed to be at home on the race track as well as the road, and the Evora is no different. Designed primarily as an everyday road car, the Evora's lightweight and stiff structure, its aerodynamics and performance means that it is perfectly suited to taming race tracks around the world..."
