Lotus Eagle Swoops Down Next Month

Lotus Eagle

It's the first new Lotus to appear since the Elise--and the "Project Eagle" mid-engined roadster has been confirmed for a world debut at the British Motor Show on July 22.

The new car is the first to come from the new Versatile Vehicle Architecture (VVA) that appeared in the Lotus APX concept vehicle a few years back. Powering the new machine--which will likely replace the Esprit in the Lotus lineup until a V-8 supercar can be developed--will be a Toyota-sourced V-6 engine that could produce more than 300 horsepower in turbocharged form.

This is the first teaser image to be liberated from the Lotus folks (kudos to Carscoop), though Lotus has shown bits and pieces of the Project Eagle's chassis and suspension.

We'll bring you more information on the new Lotus as the British show approaches in a month.
