Lotus Elite Returns In 2014
Lotus has just announced that 2010 Paris Motor Show is the place for them to reveal the Lotus Elite resurrection.
And would you just look at it! It is superb in every aspect. The new amazing body which is fitted with a retractable hardtop is very aerodynamic efficient, very light, and very very beautiful.
And the powertrain, well that’s even better. A mid-mounted 5.0 liter V8 in this car develops 620 hp which enable it to go from zero to 60 mph in slightly more than 3.5 seconds. That’s serious supercar performance. In fact with the new Elite, Lotus is getting up Ferrari’s nose! Too bad it won’t arrive until 2014.
Dany Bahar, CEO of Group Lotus said: “There’s no denying that the Elite is breathtakingly beautiful to look at but it’s so much more than that, it’s a car that over delivers in all other aspects as well. One could say it’s a car of perfect contradictions, it’s compact yet spacious, high performing yet low emitting, lightweight yet still reassuringly solid. It’s a car that we are exceptionally proud of at Lotus and we truly believe that there is nothing else like it out there both in terms of styling and performance.
