Lotus plans on making a statement at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show with a collection of three new models for release.
First is the Elise S, the Elise SC’s replacement, that comes with a new supercharged motor that promises tons of torque. The Elise S also promises improved throttle response, and better fuel economy.
As for the other two, Lotus is keeping tight-lipped about them, but has dropped the hints that one will be the fastest the brand has made yet, and the other will be a revival of a previous model.
A special edition Evora GTE will also be making its debut at Frankfurt. The Evora GTE intends to deliver a smooth ride, despite it being the quickest model Lotus has available. Originally intended as a Limited Edition for Asian consumers, it has been expanded to other markets. Lots of carbon fiber has been used for various parts to cut weight down.
Dany Bahar, Group Lotus CEO expresses his enthusiasm about the vehicles’ release, saying “What is unique about this car, is not just that it’s a serious race car – it’s a serious car. People get so excited then they see and especially hear it for the first time. It’s a very special car and will appear to a very special type of driver – and they won’t be disappointed.
