The Lotus Eterne 4-door sedan is a derivative
of the new Lotus Elite, and a series of spy photos have surfaced the
web right before its premiere at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The Lotus Eterne 4-door sedan shares most of its design lines with the 2014 Lotus Elite, the main difference being at the back. If the British manufacturer decides to take the Lotus Eterne 4-door sedan into production, then models like the Aston Martin Rapide, Mercedes CLS, Audi A7, Maserati Quattroporte, or Porsche Panamera will have a new competitor.
The Lotus Eterne 4-door sedan will most probably be fitted with the same engine as the Coupe version (the Elite) which means a 5.9-litre V8 delivering 620 horses and 720 Nm of torque. As far as performance the car’s weight will alter the 3.5-seconds from 0 to 100 needed by the elite, while its top speed should still be around 315 Km/h.
Stay tuned for official photos and details with the Lotus Eterne.
