Spy Shots: Lotus Eagle spotted during cold weather test

Our friends over at CAR Magazine have spotted the new 2+2 coupe going under some cold weather testing ahead of its London Motor Show debut in July. After checking the registration, CAR has learned that power will come from a 3.5L V6 from Toyota.

As Lotus already uses a Toyota engine in its Elise, this V6 is expected to be the same engine used in a number Toyota models in its lineup. Output is expected to be around 262 horsepower with a peak torque of 248 lb-ft. The engine also passes U.S. emissions legislation, which is important for Lotus so they can sell the Eagle on the stateside.

The car should arrive on the market around October 2008.

Head over to CAR to see the rest of the shots.
