Paris Motor Show: Lotus Eterne
October 4, 2010 § Leave a comment
Pics of the six Lotus prototypes unveiled in Paris are all over the web by now (apologies for tardiness, but y’know, paid work takes precedence) and I’m not exactly convinced by all their eco-credentials, so I’ll keep this brief: Eterne. Four-door saloon, on lengthened Elite underpinnings. Like Elite and new Esprit, gets KERS option (Kinetic Energy Recovery System). Plus supercharged 5.0 V8, possibly Lexus-sourced. Production planned for 2015, if Lotus’s owner Proton, which is pumping money into the British firm, doesn’t get cold feet or run out of cash itself.
