    Lotus Eterne Concept 2010

    Lotus Eterne Concept 2010

    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. Itís the ultimate expression of refined style, sophistication and grace. But wait. An elegant, graceful sports car? Surely not.
    A sports car by definition canít 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: ďThe 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, itís a car of perfect contradictions, itís compact yet spacious, high performing yet low emitting, relative lightweight yet still reassuringly solid.Ē

    ďWe 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 itís class competitors is that itís not an evolution of an existing two-door model, itís a deliberate and considered stand-alone creation. Itís the ultimate four door sports car.Ē
