Lotus Evora GT4 concept revealed ahead of Goodwood debut

Lotus Cars has revealed the Evora GT4 concept, which previews the British marque’s upcoming race entry in the 2020 global GT race series. Set to make its ‘dynamic debut’ at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week, not a whole lot has been confirmed about the Evora GT4 concept, though two examples will be on show at the event in identical colour schemes (pictured) which ape the livery of the iconic Lotus Type 25.

2018 Lotus Evora recalled

Lotus has issued a recall for two examples of its 2018 Evora over concerns a build issue could cause a steering fault. The British sports car specialist reports 'select vehicles' could have a steering column cartridge screw that isn't to specification. If the condition occurs, the screw could disengage from the cartridge thread, causing the "actions of the steering column" to become unpredictable. Lotus says the fault could result in serious injury or even death to the vehicle's occupants.
