Like an eagle soaring gracefully in the sky, the Lotus Eagle partially lives up to its name in front of the cameras.
First, we had rather blurry photos of the new model from the British marque, and now we see the car in a disguised form thus far managing to hide most of its good looks beneath the angular camouflage.
However, the basic ingredients are there to give us an idea about the specifications of the Eagle: the body of the 2+2 will have a lightweight aluminium chassis along with a Toyota designed V6 engine and a power output of between 200 and 300 bhp.
Performance should be truly worthy of a Lotus, with an acceleration from zero-to-sixty in well under 5 seconds.
It will slot tidily between the Elise and the new Esprit performance-wise and is expected to be ready in the spring of 2009.
