Few automakers are as deeply rooted in motorsport as Lotus. So it comes as no surprise that, so soon after its release, the British sportscar-maker and engineering firm has already come out with a racing version of its new Evora.

Tagged with the Type 124 label, the new sportscar is converted from four seats to one, but the stripped-out, competition-spec interior is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg for the GT3-spec racer. The Toyota-sourced V6, which produces 280 horses in road-going spec, has been reworked to the tune of 400 horsepower, driving the rear wheels from its midship placement via a new sequential gearbox. Carbon-composite body panels, 18-inch racing slicks hiding six-pot AP Racing calipers, a track-focused suspension and wings aplenty round out the package, which will make its race debut right here in Germany at the Nurburgring 24 in May 2010. But you can check it out now in the gallery of live shots below.
