Lotus Eterne

UPDATE : Lotus Eterne video added

The intended car maker Lotus is definitely the main highlight at this year's edition Paris Motor Show, and this next model that was just revealed is called the Lotus Eterne, a 4-door saloon that will compete in the 4-door coupe segment.

The Lotus Eterne is a front-mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive saloon, with AWD as optional, powered by an 5.0-litre V8 developing 620 PS and 720 Nm of torque (same as the Elite). Accelerating from 0 to 100 Km/h (0 to 62 mph) will require 4.0-seconds, 0.5 seconds more than in the Elite , and top speed will be clocked at 315 Km/h.

The Lotus Eterne puts 1,800 Kg on the scale, and its full hybrid transmission help achieve CO2 emission levels of 220 grams per Km.

Production for the Lotus Eterne will start early in 2015. The Lotus Eterne price is going to be around 120,000 GBP. 

The Statement of Intent

Enter the Eterne, the four door super saloon from Lotus. If the Elite is elegance incarnate then the Eterne is elegance redefined.

The Eterne is a true four door, four seater sports GT. It’s the ultimate expression of refined style, sophistication and grace. But wait. An elegant, graceful sports car? Surely not.
A sports car by definition can’t be graceful. Powerful, exciting, aggressive yes, but not graceful. Yet here it is, the ultimate paradox - the Eterne. Power and grace, performance and elegance, beauty and strength all in one stunning package.

With a 5.0 litre pressure charged V8 engine delivering up to 620 PS the Eterne is aiming for best in class performance and efficiency.



In keeping with the rest of the new line-up, the Eterne will benefit from hybrid technology.
Dany Bahar, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus, said: “The 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.”

“We truly believe that there is a market for the Eterne, there is nothing else like it out there both in terms of design, capacity and performance. The biggest difference between the Eterne and it’s class competitors is that it’s not an evolution of an existing two-door model, it’s a deliberate and considered stand-alone creation. It’s the ultimate four door sports car.”

Sometimes there are no rules to be broken, so it is time to define them instead.
