Lotus sources the Evora's engine from Toyota. It is the same 3.5-liter V-6 with variable valve timing that can be found in the Toyota Venza. But Lotus fits it with its own engine control system, resulting in 276-horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. In the Evora, that translates to a 4.9-second zero-to-60 mph time. The engine is mounted right behind the cabin, keeping the weight near the center of the car.
