The rear-wheel-drive 2+2 prototype has a 5.0-litre front-mid-mounted V8 engine delivering 611bhp and 720Nm of torque, which should enable the 1650kg car to accelerate to 62mph in something between 3.5 and 3.7 seconds.

    It is pretty, but I’m starting to have a hard time distinguishing the Aston Martin DB9, newer Jag XKs, Maserati GT, this Lotus, and a few others. Classic smooth wedge, very nice looking, but rather uninspired.

    Just like a lot of the supercars look the same – Koenigsegg, Saleen S7, McLaren F1. I think the Bugatti Veyron is ugly, but it’s a unique design. At least Porche, most Ferrari and most Lambos are distinctive.

    Is it the new concept of redesigning the American Dollar? Then I am for it! ;)

    Sorry, but it looks like a Hyundai Tiburon.

    any porsche! Hard to get caught up in a name (lotus) that is in name only.
