The network has now some spy shots published of a new generation of Lotus sports car. In the photos it is possible see how a supercar is being tested on the track. However, we still have not received the rights to publish those photos, thus our readers should be patient. But for us, from the photographs, it became clear that the design of the front and rear parts of the car were changed slightly, as a slightly increased overall length of the vehicle. Presumably, the new sports car will be equipped with a 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine with two power options – 360 and 280 horsepower.

The most powerful equipment allows supercar to accelerate to speed of 100 kilometers in 4 seconds. Earlier it was reported that the company is developing new Lotus supercar Eterne, which will be equipped with engine capacity of 4.8 liters and 570 horsepower.
