Today we are going to dive into the world of the concepts developed by the great sports car manufacturer Lotus.

First of all, we want to tell to you that because of the difficulties in the headquarters and the management, it is possible that the movement of the concepts to the production is going to be slower. And this is a pity, because Lotus recently has presented a whole five of the great and promising concepts. And the one which we want to talk about is Elite. This concept car looks quite similar to the sports car of the nearest future and it is one of the most probable ones to be put to the production.
