The stunning Lotus Elite appeared at the 2010 Paris Motor Show is now getting ready for mass production. During the Paris Motor show, the Lotus Elite mesmerized the audience with its hard topless version.
The Lotus Elite is a four-seater sports car that is powered by a 611-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. And that is the same engine found in the Lexus IS-F supercar. Just imaging how fast this car could go with this big engine. But surprisingly, the Lotus Elite is not light like its brethren; it weighs in at about 3,600 pounds, which is a massive quantity considered Lotus is known for making light cars. The cause for that much weight is due to the retractable folding hard-top.
Even though is heavy but not much any heavier compared to other sports cars, the borrowed Lexus IS-F engine has more than enough power for the Lotus Elite to handle.
The Lotus Elite touring sports car is eye-catching with its dramatic streamlined design, which makes it an attractive grand touring car that it is rival to the likes of Porshe, Ferrari, Maserati and Aston Martin. Watch the video below and have your day-dream.
