Lotus at Mondial de l'automobile 2010: Lotus Elite, Lotus Esprit, Lotus Elan, Lotus Eterne and Lotus Elise

"World first for an automotive manufacturer as Lotus unveils entire new product line up and introduces the world to the new Lotus lifestyle."

Image 1 to 6 : Lotus Elite (5.0litre, V8, 620 PS) 2014

The New Lotus Elite (5.0 litre/V8/620 PS), a new British expression of exclusivity: “The Elite is breathtakingly beautiful but it’s so much more than that. One could say it’s a car of perfect contradictions, it’s compact yet spacious, high performance yet low emissions, 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. There will always be those who believe that Lotus should stick to small sports cars but we didn’t take the decision to design something like the Elite lightly, it’s based on months of careful research and planning.” LOTUS CEO Dany Bahar.

Image 7 to 17 : Lotus Esprit (5.0 litre, V8, 620PS ) 2013

The New Lotus Esprit (5.0 litre/V8/620 PS), the icon is back: “The Esprit is the ultimate supercar. There’s a fine balance between acknowledging the greatness of the past whilst at the same time rapidly leaping forward to the future and ensuring that this car not only does the name Esprit justice but also the Lotus brand. I think we’ve managed to find the balance and in doing so created a new icon, a car people will find hard to resist. The design is aggressive, you have to see it to appreciate how low and wide the proportions are but it still retains a level of dignity, of class and most of all exclusivity. I’m very proud of this car.” LOTUS CEO Dany Bahar.

Image 18 to 29 : Lotus Elan (4.0 litre, V6, 450 PS) 2013

The New Lotus Elan (4.0 litre/V6/450 PS), the end of compromise: “Perfect for both road and track, the Elan not only ticks all the boxes, it creates new ones too. It will convert people to Lotus, it will also go a long way towards dispelling the old misconceptions about this class, that in order to have high performance you must sacrifice usability – those days are gone. Once you drive an Elan you won’t look back, it will give you things you didn’t even realise you were missing – that’s the essence of Lotus and the Elan perfectly captures that spirit.” LOTUS CEO Dany Bahar.

Image 30 to 40 : Lotus Eterne (5.0 litre, V8, 620 PS) 2015

The New Lotus Eterne (5.0 litre/V8/620 PS), the statement of intent: “The Eterne is sensational to look at and as with the rest of the range it also over delivers in all other aspects as well. Similar to the Elite, it’s a car of perfect contradictions, it’s compact yet spacious, high performance yet low emissions relatively lightweight yet still reassuringly solid. The biggest difference between the Eterne and it’s class competitors is that it’s not an evolution of an existing two-door model, it’s a deliberate and considered stand-alone creation. It’s the ultimate four door sports car.” LOTUS CEO Dany Bahar.

Image 41 to 52 : Lotus Elise (2.0 litre, inline 4, 320 PS) 2015

The New Lotus Elise (2.0 litre/inline 4/320 PS), the grown up: “We worked very hard on getting the Elise 2015 exactly right, it’s our entry level car so it needs to give a proper introduction to the Lotus driving experience. The Elise you can buy now is still a fantastic car and Lotus remains very proud of it, but this is a
natural progression for us moving forward. The Elise 2015 will also be classleading in terms of performance and efficiency but it will do more than that, it will take the Elise model to the forefront of its class across the board. It’s the next generation Elise for a new generation of Lotus drivers.” LOTUS CEO Dany Bahar.
