As two of the finest cars the US and the UK have to offer square off, we have to talk numbers for a moment. Right out of the gate, the Corvette Grand Sport sits about 60 horsepower higher than the Lotus’ namesake 400 ponies. The Lotus is advantageously lighter than the Corvette, though not by much. With a 4.8-liter V8 engine under its hood, the Corvette sports more torque than the Lotus’ 3.5-liter supercharged V6, so the Corvette will have no problem pulling away from the Lotus. But can the Evora still manage a win? Only one way to find out.
