2014 Lotus Elan Future Car Review Price Specification Top Speed Faliure Rebates and Colours Review

Monday, April 4, 2011

Avert your eyes, the string-back glove purists: A new Lotus Elan was launched in Paris Auto Show, and for the first time, the model will not be available with a sunroof.

First, some history: The mark of Elan in 1962, when Lotus was a concern best known for its growing success of motor sport and the ludicrously impractical sports car, the Mark VII or 7. This year, Hethel launched a bit of gauze, a motor roadster, which weighed little more than 1,700 pounds and run at 60 km / h in 7.1 seconds. It will prove to be one of the defining moments in motorsport history. The Elan was a great success, cash injections needed in the Lotus coffers and used as reference for the modern sports car. A lot of the following products, both internally and out (the first generation Mazda Miata is a blatant homage Elan), and although Hethel revived the name in late 1980 for a front wheel drive powertrain convertible Isuzu original, first generation Elan is widely acclaimed as a master of Lotus, and one of the most beautiful cars ever built.


In short, the Lotus Elan, Lotus Elan, and we can assume that the resurrection of the name was not taken lightly. The success, if not an exact recreation are present: a car, which is presented in Paris is a £ 2,900, rear wheel drive coupe is due to, in the autumn of 2013. The power is in mid-mounted Toyota 4.0-liter V-6 from running at 7,800 rpm her, and uses forced induction, a word about that, to produce 444 hp and 343 Nm of torque.



Top speed is claimed at 193 km / h, and Lotus says 62 mph comes in 3.5 seconds. Two seats are standard, but as with the first Elan 2 +2 configuration will also be offered. A seven-speed transmission with double clutch gearbox is only available (boo!), and a “push to pass” F1 hybrids of inspiration is optional. The price is said to be around £ 75 000, what we hear is the approximate price in dollars.




Like the original, the Elan 14 sitting in the bottom half of the Lotus product range, which lies on a model lighter, cheaper and more targeted (the all-new 14 Elise, who occupies the position formerly occupied by 7), but less heavy faster and more expensive cars (Elite Paris announced, Spirit, and who remember the early Eterne high dollar as lotus flowers and Spirit Elite 1970 original). If nothing else, the parallel is interesting, Lotus founder Colin Chapman used the first successful Elan and the ability to fund its growth, from luxury and drive profits through expensive deals with low volume. More lotus flowers are always a good thing, here’s hope this one lives up to its name.
