Lotus Elite Concept unveiled

Lotus recently came out and said that they were repositioning the brand to compete with the likes of Ferrari and Aston Martin. Most loyal enthusiasts probably thought to themselves that this could be a disastrous move. However, they should now rethink it because this first concept is a beauty!

The new Elite will benefit from Lotus’ long-term partnership with Toyota. The Lexus IS-F’s 5.0 liter V8 engine will be called to duty pumping out 611 horsepower. Lotus estimates 0-100 km/h times in approximately 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h.

The Elite will have a retractable hard top giving owners the option of open-top driving. Hybrid technology is also expected to grace the car when production begins. Be expecting the Lotus Elite to be accompanied by a $180,000 price tag when it goes on sale in spring of 2014.
