The Lotus Evora gave us a good look into Lotus’ direction for future designs the Lotus Elite ($180,000) takes the Evora’s already outstanding design and adds a heaping scoop of awesome. Powered by a front/mid-engine 5-Liter V8 scooped out of Lexus IS F and bolted to an automatic transmission with optional use of hybrid technology the Elite boasts 611hp, a 0-100 km/h time of roughly 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of a whopping 195 mph. The retractable hardtop 2+2 Elite might just be primed to launch the Lotus name into the supercar arena.
