Lotus working on supercar

Lotus’s plans to compete directly with Lamborghini and Ferrari will come to fruition very soon with the unveiling of a new high-performance supercar in the same league as the old Esprit. How soon? Just go to www.grouplotus.com to get the official countdown (almost exactly 17 days from now at the time of this writing). An engine (either another use for the V-10 found in the Lexus LFA or possibly a reworked 5.0-liter V-8 from the Lexus IS F) producing 500–600 hp and moving a normal Lotus low weight of a bit more than 3,000 pounds ensures its spot in the supercar world. Pricing will put it in the same league as the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo, and McLaren MP4-12C. No word if the car will revive the Esprit nameplate.
