Paris Motor Show preview: Lotus Elite

September 23, 2010 § Leave a comment

KERS is coming to road cars – though it’ll be at the top end of the sports car market at first. Lotus is unveiling a 2+2 concept called Elite next week – recalling an earlier Lotus coupe – and whilst a rather un-environmentally-friendly 5.0 V8 is posited for the standard-issue version, planned for production in 2014, the interesting bit is the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery) option. This is said to bring down carbon dioxide emissions to 215g/km, still high, but low by V8 super-coupe standards.
