Lotus has stuned the media with the Eterne four-door coupe unveiling at the Paris Motor Show October 4, 2010.
Details are limited, but the car is based on 2014 Elite. This means power will likely be provided by a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 620 PS (456 kW / 612 hp) and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque. A hybrid variant will also be offered and it will use a Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) and, possibly, a Lexus-sourced transmission with two integrated electric motors.
Set to go on sale in 2015, the Eterne will carry a base price of approximately £120,000. Stay tuned for more photos and details.
