Tomica Series – No.104 LOTUS EVORA GTE

As it is near impossible to get the Matchbox version of the Evora, this will do and some.

There is a bit of room for detailing, the front grill could do with some treatment as would the side sills. – the box gives a good account of how to fill in.

I had to look up the model designation:

The Evora GTE road version is a variant of the Evora that was built to permit its racing variant to be able to race under GT3 and LM GTE regulations.[20] There were only 25 of these special editions built. The road car uses the race car’s engine, and produces 438 hp (327 kW; 444 PS), making it the most powerful Lotus ever made. The weight of the car has been lowered drastically, and is now at 1,277 kg (2,815 lb).

Am I being fussy with the detailing? Most likely yes, but I can let it go. It is good to see the unknown being created as a casting – not in terms of the car, but the variant.

It’s good to be different.
