Behold the Lotus Eterne Sedan Concept, the British response to the Porsche Panamera. Unveiled today at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the new four door super saloon from Lotus promises to offer a new level of elegance and the ultimate expression of refined style. The Lotus Eterne is a true four seater sports GT and is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine delivering up to 620 PS and 720 Nm of torque, and capable to push the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds, as well as to a top speed of 315 km/h or 192 mph.
With a total weight of 1,800 kg, the car will make its debut in 2015 and will be available in rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. A hybrid version will also be available, and this model will use a hybrid gearbox with integrated electric motors. The Lotus Eterne will be introduced on the market in Spring 2015, and will carry a price tag of £120,000 or $189,000.
Dany Bahar, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus, said: “The Lotus Eterne is sensational to look 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 performing yet low emitting, relative lightweight yet still reassuringly solid.”
